Since 1992, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution has shown the world that a car doesn’t have to be expensive to be impressive. The Evo delivers high-speed thrills and expert handling without completely emptying your bank account. Unfortunately, Mitsubishi has decided to end the Evo with the 10th generation (EVO X) and 2016 model to focus on more environmentally-friendly cars.
But that doesn’t mean people can’t dream. A Filipino man named Enoch Gabriel Gonzales put his auto design skills to use and created a what-if Lancer Evo concept.
He based his design on the next-generation 2018 Mitsubishi Lancer with sharp edges and killer styling. Then he added Evo characteristics like a large rear wing, hood vents, Brembo brake calipers, and more to create an Evo XI we can all dream about.
Our favorite part of the design is the large honeycomb-patterned grille that features a large XI that appears when looking at the Evo head on.
What we loved the most about the real life Evo was the fact that it could take on cars that cost a lot more money without giving up anything.
While we may never see a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo XI in real life, it is a lot of fun to dream about what it could have been.
