The 1994 revised model saw a price increase that unfortunately led to the disappearance of many features seen on previously released models.
The car was gradually stripped of its electronically controlled suspension system and active aerodynamics. Despite the loss, the 3000 GT gained new front and rear bumpers as well as a restyled nose, with new headlights. Interior styling wasn’t left aside either, with the car having gained dual airbags and new air conditioning. Adjustments came to an end with a few minor engine upgrades that were aimed at increasing torque.

The second generation 3000 GT ( or GTO) came with a redesigned front bumper with projector beam headlights replacing the previous pop-up headlamps, round projector foglights, as well as reshaped side vents and rear bumper.
The interior received dual air bags, a new audio system and revised air condition system. Bigger wheel and tires were offered beginning with 1995, the basic model coming with 16-inch wheels while the top end one was fitted with 18-inch chrome ones. However, due to the cars’ price increase, the automaker had to ditch the tunable exhaust, ECS and active aerodynamics in 1994, 1995 and 1996 in order to keep the car at a competitive price.

The 1990 Mitsubishi 3000 GT it was sort of a Grantourismo Japanese car.
In order to sell them in the U.S., the Mitsubishi had to cut a deal with Chrysler Corp. So, Chrysler made some exterior modifications and sold it as a Dodge Stealth. But the Mitsubishi was the real deal. And yes. Both had pop-up headlights.

The long, flat, hood, the small cabin, and the big, rear window were part of the Japanese styling. The Acura/Honda NSX had one, but it has the engine in the rear. On the sides, there were some air-scoops in front of the rear wheels but it is hard to understand why. And it had wheels up to 18” which, for 1990, were huge! Imagine that in the same era Mitsubishi Galant had 15” wheels.

Inside, there is a luxurious interior with leather seats and standard manual transmission. Strangely, it has rear seats but those were small even for a bichon. The car featured an interesting audio system that had a CD, a tape player, and a radio.

It had only 3.0-liter V6 engines. But there were three different versions: with 2 valves per cylinder, 4-valves per cylinder and then a 4-valves per cylinder and twin-turbo. The car had either FWD for the lower power versions or AWD for top versions. Its major flaw was the weight. The top VR4 version was almost 1760 kg (3880 lbs).
