Where would we be without the EVO? Mitsubishi's latest turbocharged all-wheel-drive wonder has an uncanny ability to grab the imagination and set off fantasies about the good times that could be had while driving it. Even straight from the factory, it must be one of the most affordable cars that can still turn heads. Steve Baez had his turned, even though he's used to more upscale European wheels like the VW GTI, Scirocco, BMW 325i and a couple of M3s. He still owns a Range Rover Sport (the supercharged model). But the Evolution, on this occasion an '06 IX (bought new in 2005), hooked him, just as it has so many others. The quest for more power and performance inevitably leads here.
