In 1992, Mitsubishi came out with the first Lancer Evolution, powered by a 2L, 250 hp turbocharged-intercooled 4G63 engine with all wheel drive and weighed 2574 lbs. The Evolution began to advance through the EVO II with 260 hp, increasing turbo boost pressure, the EVO III with 270 hp and a second intercooler, and a larger rear wing, to the EVO IV with the new twin-scroll turbo, to the EVO V, with it's aluminum spoiler, to the EVO VI with a twinwing spoiler, including a Tommi Makinen version, a heavier car, to the EVO VII with the new Active Center Differential, to the nicely made EVO VIII...EVO's are a great car because they are a 4 cylinder with 276 hp and 289 lb-ft stock and are capable of competing with higher classes of cars, such as the Corvette(I shit you not, I saw a stock EVO VIII outrun a stock Corvette)...

A car for men who are not man enough to handle a real muscle car, such as the Dodge Charger. Most often, this car is for men who might be married, but they still spend 5-10% of their days questioning whether they should become a homosexual.

Men who buy these cars are often thought of as "gay" or "stupid" by men who buy American muscle cars.
Timothy wanted to buy an American muscle car until he was turned off by his sales experience with the store that sells them, simply because he is a dumb ass and will believe all the bullshit the salesmen at the Mitsubishi dealership. This is why he bought the Lancer Evolution.

Tim: Do you like my Lancer Evo dude?
Steve: No. It's a girl's car.
Tim: What?
Steve: You should have bought a Dodge Charger.
Tim: But this comes with a standard transmission and it's All Wheel Drive. I can't get a standard transmission on a Dodge Charger.
Steve: Yes, it does have those accessories, but it also is a vehicle for homosexuals. Do you enjoy penis on a regular occasion, or do you deny your preference for penis and believe the bullshit your therapist tells you?
