28: 2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse
The 2006 Eclipse was sort of a brand rechristening for the company, as the Eclipse had grown a bit long in the tooth. What was once an exciting car had become dated and the competition was heating up. The 2006 model introduced a completely new modern design to compete with the Nissan 350Z (via Car & Driver).
The Eclipse was a groundbreaking car when it was brand new, but by the mid-2000s, the appetite for this car wasn’t the same. This generation of the Eclipse was not as functional or budget-minded as the original model. The budget-friendly price and exceptional performance made the Eclipse a great value, but by the 2000s that was all but eliminated.
