Mitsubishi updated the 3000 GT four years after the model's introduction, dropping some of its cool factors but adding other new features.

At the beginning of the '90s, there was a drop in the worldwide economy, and some carmakers felt that on their budgets. Mitsubishi desperately tried to tell people about its models' qualities, but it wasn't very convincing. Despite having a few very good vehicles, such as the 3000 GT pictured here, the sales stalled and, eventually, led to the model's dismissal seven years later.

The 3000 GT was a GT vehicle in Mitsubishi's idea, and it wasn't far from reality either. Its look with a long hood and short cabin ended with a wide, sloped rear windscreen was already famous in the mid-'90s. But the biggest change was at the front, where Mitsubishi replaced the pop-up headlights with fixed ones that looked like two spots on each side. In addition, a short but wide fixed wing adorned the tailgate at the back, while the four exhausts under the bumper completed the car's sporty image.

Inside, the 3000 GT featured a sporty but cramped interior. True, the two-sport bucket seats were great for most people, but there was no room for anything else. The carmaker placed the gear stick on the center console, and the center stack hosted the controls for the HVAC and audio systems. But the button for the active aero system was gone since it was no longer available.

Under the hood, Mitsubishi squeezed 20 more horses from the same 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine. Unlike the non-facelifted version, the 1994 model came with a standard six-speed manual. Unfortunately, the car's biggest problem was the weight, which was too big for a sports car.
