From my belief I've seen Mitsubishi Australia post a few times that they're not planning on discontinueing the lancer here in Aus anytime sooner, so we will have a 2018 model from that statement. Although it's sad USA is having it gone

At one point earlier on, Mitsubishi Was in negotiations with Nissan and others about sharing the development of a new platform but those negotiations broke down. Mitsubishi wasn't able to handle it on its own. So I would say a joint venture with new part owner Nissan could be on the cards if a new lancer is to evolve! ASX is still going on with the same platform as lancer! :)

Interesting the 'new' Pulsar lasted less than 4 years but the CJ/CF is hanging on after almost 10 years on the market!

Still pissed that Mitsy has no issues with the ASX but can't be bothered giving us a proper new Lancer. The next Eclipse looks interesting if you're after a 2 door but its not a sedan or hatch/wagon which used to be the bread and butter for most car companies, now I guess that's the small SUVs many are buying.
