Mirage beats Porsche 914!
August 19, 2018
Yes, it's true, the 2014-18 Mirage is 'faster' 0 to 60 mph than the original 1970 Porsche 914! (The 914 has rear wheel drive, a bigger engine (1.7), more hp (80), more torque (97) and the same weight as the Mirage). Yet there are folks out there who are surprised/disappointed that a car with 74-78hp (the Mirage) isn't 'fast' in today's world. Mitsubishi has hit the mark with its new Mirage! I agree with those who say, 'people don't understand this car.' Even though the new Mirage will run door to door with a DeLorean (130hp) in the quarter-mile, that's not the way to appraise this car. Read about Mirage's great features others have written. A new 1970 Porsche 914 in 2018 dollars would cost you about $22,886. The new Mirage is a much better car for about half that amount! Better warranty, better tech, better mpg and yes, 'faster' too. Would I buy my Mitsubishi Mirage again? Yes. Got my 2017 SE manual 12/17 and my 2017 SE CVT 2/18. (FYI, the center-armrest for the Toyota Yaris will fit the Mirage. Just saw off the nub on the bottom of the post and wrap a single layer of bicycle inner tube around the post. Fits just fine in the cup holder.)
