Abandoned Mitshubishi 3000 GT ( GTO )
The Mitsubishi GTO is a sports car built by the Japanese automaker Mitsubishi between 1990 and 2000. In most export markets it was rebadged as the Mitsubishi 3000GT. It was also imported and sold by Chrysler of North America as the Dodge Stealth captive import from the 1991 to 1996 model years with only minor detail/appearance differences; mechanically, the two cars were almost identical. The design was the result of the collaborative effort between Chrysler and its Japanese partner, Mitsubishi Motors. This differed from the two company's other collaboration, Diamond-Star Motors because both the Stealth and the 3000GT were assembled in Japan. The Japanese domestic market model took its name from the Galant GTO, a two-door hardtop coupé sold by the company in the early 1970s, which in turn exacted its name from a specific international endurance motor sport technical regulation, expressed in Italian as Gran Turismo Omologato.
In Japan, Mitsubishi's GTO was sold at a specific retail chain, called Car Plaza, and Japanese buyers were liable for elevated operating costs imposed by the annual road tax and the vehicles exterior dimensions exceeding the "compact size" exterior dimension regulaltions.
