I'm wondering why Mitsu throw this new technology engine and chassis to Proton? It should have something, maybe story will like Wira again? ~ Because Japanese are more intelligent in business!

i was happy that proton have phased out the mitsu models, i mean starting to build cars from scratch (neo, gen 2, exora...etc) then they are back to "free lunch" with the inspira! :(

anything from Proton will sure get bashing. where's the sense of pride.. *sigh*

R3 keep up the good work!

take make and developed a car right from scratch is far more expensive as they need to do a lots of RND. though by making "copy" yield a better economic sense. as earlier mention proton is not going to excel nor making much profit in this C car segment as many competitor like the honda civics mitsubishi lancer etc etc. As we all know proton is better of producing a cheap and affordable car like our beloved saga BLM. but to fill this gap proton need to comes up with a model that are able fill up this gap. this is where inspira kicks in.. although we are not proud in copying mitsu model we should be greateful as we are now able to assemble and have access to their technology!! love it or hate it i sure a lot of EVOX wannabes will be on our streets but they are not to blame as the car is theirs... and im pretty sure that we all agree it look beautiful!! looking forward to R3 version though!!! good work proton!! to all proton basher... come on... get a life.. no one force u to buy one... regards..... Civic fans

its business thing... mitsu not sell good enough their lancer here, so at lease they sell it to proton (their technology, engine, gearbox part) to re badge their lancer.... everyone still making money mar... even halfcut shop start to bring lancer part now from japan...

Of course there will malaysia boleh again mar... can wait to see evo x halfcut to be fitted in inspira...

proton alrdy built their own design
gen2,persona,savy,waja,saga blm,exora..
cost to produce own design is expensive n they this model not selling in large volume.
so hard to cover back the rnd cost.so they opt to rebadge.
maybe its their new strategy..
high sell volume rnd itself,low volume sell rebadge..

n bout rebadge japanese,german,us car maker also do it.
ford laser,mazda 323 just to name a few...
but why only in malaysia they have "proud" issue?

even in this day and age of google, people still bash proton without even searching for any info about what proton-mitsu are doing, or platform sharing, or technology partner, or even barter trade...

lolll at most of the comments....for those who condemning a lot...are u guys the mitsu lancer owners?? i feel sorry for u guys..
--------------------

its out tax payers money (yours, mine, our parents n all) funded into them all this while... and we end up with this rebadging exercise... makes u wonder what have they done wif all those money..

25yrs is quite young for car manufacturer bro. plus they own mitsu stocks. so once they produce car same like mitsu. they can start rnd.proton take wira then they produce waja and gen2. now inspira then only new model.

plus some of us should be glad. lancer gt is 123k while inspira 2.0cvt is 94k. i know i can affort both price. even more. but remember.... there are some of us that cant affort it. some might condemn but some will be grateful. proton shaved almost 30k from lancer price.

u wan lancer look? change front bumper. few thousands je kot. no biggie deal.

i bet.... some of people here condemn proton. but comfirm some of u guys own wira,waja,gen2 or mayb already book inspira.

for some yang condemn..... if u tak puas hati with proton. u want nice car. get la evo,subaru r35. bmw,merc. bentley. IF u can affort. if not just keep ur thoughts to urself.

peace and drive safe people :driver::biggrin:

with the advanced of the internet people are still lacking in their research. they just throw their blunt statement without facts and figure. but i do share their views on this. being proton owner myself.. proton quality is wayyyy behind their competitor( what to do my pocket is not deep enough)... but if u cant make good car like toyota or honda try copy them nicely like produa are doing with their myvi and alza.. like i said b4, to start a new model... require a lot of funding ( you i and our parents money) so doesnt make sense if we are going to spent this money and at the end of the day they cant make much profit out from it. so if you guys haf a deep pocket get lancer evo X for those who wants the look go for inspira. for those who bought lancer just chill.. those car are JDM and will much sought after soon.. ( i hope). for proton haters.. keep up the good work, let proton know ya feeling :)

no offence sir but, dont you thnk it looks exactly like evo X? i mean,i have nothng against proton, but at the very least, mod it lah, so it looks like a proton inspira instead of evo X.. like they did w putra wira,or satria..

yup i agree with u. don't think we pay tax only for proton.proton also pay tax to goverment maa..proton also need to pay salary to their staff..some middle income person who cannot affort to buy lancer also pay tax..now they can buy one although not ori.to the person who condemn proton ,do you buy proton cars or do you buy mitsubishi cars?i don't think you buy proton cars. think positive la bro..

"While we wait around and hunt for more information, here's a little something that Tom whipped up when we asked him how he thought the Inspira-X may look like, the man prefers to let his pictures do the talking, we hope he's right because that could just be the best looking Proton in a while."

Of course the picture is a photoCHOP one. I think he is trying to say how TOM is wishing the car will be looked alike(in a picture form). Cheers:driver:
so the guy thinks that the best looking inspira would be converting back to lancer evo front bumper?
sounds stupid.....

New scenario:

Mits Lancer 2.0GT owner: Tauke R3 Body kit ada ka?

Shop: Ada boss... half-cut or fiber or Orginal or 2nd pun ada...harga boleh runding.
