“The Mitsubishi 3000GT never received the same love of its high-end Japanese sport coupe contemporaries like the Toyota Supra, Acura NSX, Mazda RX-7 and Nissan Skyline. That's a shame because it's an excellent car.” – Motor Trend, 2018
Cars.com owner reviews resulted in a 4.5-star (out of 5) overall rating for the Mitsubishi 3000GT. Here's a representative South Carolina review from the site: “I've owned my (3000GT) since it was new in 1994. Performance and reliability have been everything I could hope for. In spite of its age (and mine) the car still gets looks from people as we drive by. The car has lots of gadgets including a little television screen that reports on what the climate control system is up to. The 6-speaker Infinity stereo system always performs. The 6- disc CD changer works great…. The electrically operated driver's seat provides creature comfort. The power and acceleration are a beautiful thing. The tire tread is about a foot wide, so it doesn't squeal around corners, and it doesn't slip in wet weather…. It's been a great vehicle overall, and I still look forward to driving it.”
Offered here is a 1994 Mitsubishi 3000GT in Caracas Red over gray consigned by its original owner. The car's odometer shows 69,889 miles, or fewer than 2,600 miles per-year on average since new. The outstanding condition of every aspect of this stock 3000GT is a tribute to its sole owner, who treasured the car since the day it was first delivered. Who else keeps a car's original factory window sticker in perfect condition? Yes, it's included in the sale (and in the photo gallery listing all the car's original equipment.) But for its odometer reading, this could pass for a brand-new car.
The exterior Caracas Red paint is without obvious flaws anywhere. The finish is smooth, even, and uniformly glossy across the entire body: from the lower-front grille, across the hood and coupe roofline, to the rear-deck spoiler with its integrated LED brake light. Given the car's overall lack of chrome trim, it's a memorable look. Rear-fender and front-fascia brake-cooling ducts, racing-style painted mirror caps and door handles, individual headlights behind clear-plastic covers, and a rear diffuser are all part of the car's trademark “ahead of its time” appearance. Tinted cabin glass (including the rear hatch) and all lighting lenses are clear and free of scuffs or cracks. The factory badging—limited to just the tri-diamond Mitubishi hood and rear-bumper insignia and the 3000GT center-rear identification—is properly in place; the flanks of the car are free of any badging, and with the stylized body lines, gives the sports coupe a flowing look. Stock, 7-spoke, 16-inch alloy wheels are mounted with Hankook® Radial Ventus K100 225/55 ultra-high-performance tires.
Inside, the well-bolstered, fold-forward, front bucket seats, and the rear, sculpted, 2-position (50-50 foldable) bench seat are upholstered in an attractive geometric-pattern gray cloth. The long-wearing fabric is in excellent condition; it shows absolutely no damage and only the barest minimum of wear from regular use confined to the driver's seat. Stylized door-panel trim features a matching fabric upper insert and a lower carpeted panel. The cabin carpeting appears brand-new; front “3000GT”-embroidered protective carpet mats are in place. Under a roll-out cover, the cargo area floor is also covered in unfaded gray carpet. A black, multifunction, sport steering wheel fronts an undamaged black dashboard and prominent tachometer and speedometer. Engine-monitoring gauges are located under three “humps” in the top-center of the dash, above the heating and air conditioning controls and a Kenwood® audio head unit. The leather-booted shift lever for the 5-speed manual transmission is located forward on the center console; a combination armrest-storage box (with internal cupholders) is to the rear.
Under the hood, the transverse-mounted, dual-overhead-cam, 24-valve, 3-liter V6 occupies a beautifully pristine engine bay. (Even the underside of the hood is spotless.) All components are properly mounted; all wiring and engine-plumbing, properly routed. Viewed from below, the car's chassis is similarly clean and well-kept. There is no damage and virtually no rust.
The 3000GT's factory-mounted information, identification and build tags remain in place. The car's original owner's manual is included in the sale.
While the more than 160 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this '93 3000GT in detail from every angle, including from below, we expect and encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call to arrange an appointment in advance as our showroom is not open to the public. And feel free to get in touch anytime by phone or email if you have questions.
Only a precious few 27-year-old performance cars are maintained in the near-perfect condition of this '94 Mitsu 3000GT. And fewer still is the number of drivers who get the chance to experience that level of stewarded performance out on the road. We're pretty sure one such fortunate individual is reading this right now. Probably along with several others.
