I'll Be Buried In This Car — After you work out all of Mitsubishi's kinks they have in these cars, they work great! It has Lots of torque that matches its beautiful, yet aggressive, widebody. When anyone tries to pull on me, If I don't smoke them, then I definitely put up a fight.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Suddenly, The Obvious Choice. — Build Quality: My car is holding up well, however I imagine that this is because I have rebuilt the entire car. Car Comparisons: The other car I was looking at was a 1985 Toyota Supra. I got the Starion because it was the rarer, and faster car. Performance: This car LIVES to be driven at 10/10ths.

Pros

Styling was second to none, Incredibly different and unique.

Cons

Engine was terrible... Single Cam inline four cylinder. Turbo intercooled 2.6 liter engine is not the best engine in the mitsubishi line-up but they made it work as best they could.

Fun And Unique. — Vehicle was fun to drive, but heavy. Starions were never considered ground breaking but they were beautiful and unique cars. Fair acceleration, good top speed, Average brakes,Cost of ownership wasn't bad, but the car gets horrible gas mileage. I always enjoyed driving this car.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Cons

parts availability, some design flaws that must be worked beyond, heavy!

Best Of The 80s — I still own and operate two, one as a race car the other my former daily driver/resto project. The daily has not let me down, even when it cracked a head by the jet valve, and when a radiator was punctured. Not without flaws, but this has been one of the best balanced cars I've had. In competition the wieght has been the only detracting aspect of the Starion. A real gem when you can get them.

1988 Mitsubishi Starion Ex Turbo — Typical Low-Budget Sportscar of the 1980, with turbocharger that develops all the power at one time. Spectacular, but technology and appearance are no more up-to-date, what makes out of the Starion a car for fans and collectors.

2.6L turbo. All I can say is wow. All the power you need. Just be careful not to spin the tires too much pulling away from the light. Read More
