    Its old. Its based on the Mazda Familia(BJ) aka USDM Protege, which was launched in Japan back in June 1998 for the 1999 model year. This makes the car 8 years old!

    The current gen Lancer(9th gen) on the other hand was first introduced in Japan in 2000.

    *NSL: medyo instant lang, eh... if I'd had more time, I could have brought my stock mags out and brought my bro for more pics, pero we were really there to see the Strada, eh... bonus lang ito.

    RE: Protege/Familia - yup, the last generation platform dates from 1998, but it's an evolutionary development only of the second generation Familia (what we know as the 323). 2001 saw the introduction of the 142 hp Protege MP3 in the US, and the Lynx RS is loosely based on that one, minus some ridiculous extraneous sound equipment (subwoofer) and those 17" Racing Hart wheels and grippy tires. But as many a Lynx RS owner can tell you, it's faster with the local 16" rims, and the tires you can buy...

    Would that it were based on the 170 hp Japanese version, but heck, we're lucky it came here at all. The Japanese version was very limited, and it's hard to even find proof that it actually existed at all.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    The next-generation Lancer seems like it's going to be one size class up on the old Lancer. It looks a lot like the "shark-nosed" Galant, and it will probably be just as big as the older Galant model.

    Addendum: By the way... although this is probably selling as slowly as molasses (the Lancer, I mean), I actually saw a Lancer GT on the road the other day.

    Didn't race him, though...
