1994 Mitsubishi FTO
100,612 km or 62,518 miles
The FTO was an interesting offering by Mitsubishi from 1994 to 2000. It was a front-engined, front wheel drive coupe with three engine options and three transmission options. From weakest to most powerful, there was the 4G93 1.8l 4-cylinder with 123 hp, the 2.0 6A12 V6 with 168 hp, then the FTO GPX and GP with the MIVEC-equipped 6A12 2.0 V6 with 197hp. While the power output was relatively low, the FTO only had 2,425-2,668 lbs (depending on trim) to haul around. The FTO was available with a 5-speed manual, or a 4 or 5-speed semi-automatic, similar to Porsche’s Tiptronic at the time. The FTO was quite competitive in its class, even winning “Japan Car of the Year” in 1994-95. There was some success in motorsport, with professional and Best Motoring driver Akihiko Nakaya driving and FTO for some time. Ultimately in 2000, crash test restrictions and slow sales led to the demise of the FTO, with Mitsubishi opting out of developing a new model to conform to the new restrictions.
