Even those the new Galants look like tanks...I have driven the new GTS V6 and even for its size its pretty nimble. I would love to test drive this 9g RalliArt if it becomes a production car. Here is the Motor Trend test drive article

They'd be silly not to make this. The front end is still ugly as sin, though.

Galants aren't supposed to slalom at 69 mph. They don't run the quarter mile in 14.4 seconds at 98.5 mph and can't do Motor Trend's figure-eight in 25.7 seconds. And no Galant behaves like an Evo.







I know it's a foreign idea for most of us here, but you might want to try taking the car off jackstands.

Yah..I was pretty puzzled about the comment myself. I am sure the current Motor Trend staff is a bunch of young guys who never knew that GVR4's existed. Maybe someone here should email them a Back issue when they test drove the GVR4 back then.

The worst thing is it is ugly and weighs as much as your average aircraft carrier.

I am pleasantly surprised when one of the great unwashed praises our car. However I don't expect it, and I do not hold my breath.

what is a stock vr4's slalom speed and breaking distance and 0-60mph time with someoneo who would drive it like they stole it? Maybe we should complain to their magazine. Do they not know that we are still here?




http://www.minnstech.com/galantspec.htm

0-60mph: 6.8sec (Manufacturer), 7.0sec (Car and Driver), 7.3sec (Motor Trend), 7.9sec (Design News)
0-100mph: 21.9sec (Car and Driver)
Standing 1/4 mile: 15.2sec @ 89 mph (Manufacturer), 15.6sec @ 88mph (Car and Driver), 15.6sec @ 89mph (Motor Trend)
Top Speed: 130mph (Manufacturer), 132 (Car and Driver), 130 (Design News)
Skidpad: 0.78g (Car and Driver), 0.80g (Motor Trend), 0.77g (Design News)
Braking 70-0mph: 183ft (Car and Driver)
Braking 60-0mph: 130ft (Motor Trend)
Slalom: 60.8mph (Car and Driver), 64.9mph (Motor Trend)

It was impressive by 1991 standards, but not so much by today's standards. A current V6 4-door Honda Accord automatic would probably best all these numbers stock-for-stock

Well..after the 6g Gen Galant, there wasn't any real market for mid size sedans to be performance based, the focus was praticality, reliability, and price. The North American market during the mid to late 90's were SUV's...its what consumers wanted, so manufactures put it out there. Just recently Mid Size "performance" sedans are becoming more popular probably due to the early to mid 90's young "performance" sport compact owners now having family's wanting more of that type of car rather than a SUV and not to mention gas prices these days. 7th gen and 8th gen Galant continued the VR-4 model in Europe and Asia but instead using a V6 twin turbo AWD setup. Mitsu finally got on the bandwagon with mid size performance cars...Nissan beefed up there Altima and Maxima and even Mazda is not offering a AWD V6 turbo Mazda 6.

Here are some pics of the VR4's we never got to see in the U.S. shores:

Here are the E8 chassis 7th Gens





Here is a E8 7th Gen with a 6th Gen GVR4 4g63t swap


Here are some E9 8th Gen VR-4s

It's quite simple really. It would create competition for the Evo, which is already selling poorly.

Which is the same reason why you'll never see an AWD 4G Eclipse

actually i think an AWD eclpse might work out better. The galant obviously not, because the Evo is the same thing, a turbo, awd, 4 door. But an eclipse is more of a sporty looking vehicle, which might appeal to a crowd that the Evo doesn't.

Didn't seem to stop Subaru -- WRX, STI, Legacy GT sedan and wagon, Outback sedan and wagon, Forester XT and Baha.

yeah but Subaru didnt get the crap kicked out of them with the WRX like Mitsu did with the Eclipse, that put them in a bad financial position, so now "trying new things out" is a little difficult.
