9: Mitsubishi Starion
Before we got the 3000GT and before the fame of the Eclipse, there was the Starion. The car also had a corporate twin in the Chrysler Conquest. But it was the Starion that introduced performance buyers to a brand known as Mitsubishi. The curious thing about the car is that it had a twin-turbo powered coupe (via Classic).
The downside was that Mitsubishi was still a new company in the states, and the car had some quality issues to overcome. Reliability was not the greatest in the early Starion models, and electrical problems were also prevalent in the car. For the most part, the Starion was a failure but it got buyers acquainted with Mitsubishi.
