Heavyweight Contender: 1993 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4

Mitsubishi’s entry into the 90s Japanese supercar wars was a technologically advanced heavyweight brute. It was the automotive equivalent of a German Tiger II tank when compared to Mazda’s RX-7 M4 Sherman and Toyota’s Supra MkIV Matilda. If the terrain involved turns and obstacles the 3000GT was outgunned, but head to head on a long stretch of tarmac, the twin-turbocharged V6 was a menace even before owners started turning up the boost. Today, prices for the Supra are insane, prices for the RX-7 with an original engine (hah, good luck!) are getting insane, but the 3000GT (and its Dodge Stealth RT cousin) are still not bad. Find this 1993 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4 offered for $17,700 in Mesa, AZ via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.

Hello, Time to let her go for a down payment on a house. The car is adult driven and all maintenance up to date. I invested in fuel system cleaning including new fuel pump. The suspension has also been serviced and the car feels tight. Never been in an accident. Everything works like it’s supposed to. No check engine or any funny lights. It has all service records available.

The car is all factory original with no aftermarket upgrades. No accidents. Very clean. Runs amazing!

Recently Mitsubishi replaced the transfer case due to a recall and did a 21 point inspection on the car and passed with flying colors.

By appointments only. No joy ride. Prepare to show cash before you drive it. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for looking and have a nice day!
