The Eclipse was a sporty mainstay for Mitsubishi ever since the two-door car was launched for the 1990 model year, along with the similar Eagle Talon and Plymouth Laser. At the time, all three were built at the same Illinois production facility that was jointly operated by Mitsubishi and Chrysler, and all were available in front- and all-wheel drive versions. An all-new coupe arrived for 1995 and the equally new Spyder convertible arrived the following year.
