Cohort Pic(k) of the Day: Mitsubishi Sapporo – White Generic Variety

When I saw this Mitsubishi Sapporo that RiveraNotario posted at the Cohort, it reminded my of the Plymouth Sapporo I shot early in my CC career, although that car was a gen1 version and a lot more dolled up than this rather stark version. Apparently this gen2 version (1980-1983) was still sold here, but sales had really dropped off, along with its kissing cousin, the Dodge Challenger.

After these ended in 1983, the platform was recycled for the Mitsubishi Starion/Dodge Conquest.

It’s got those distinctive slanting front and rear ends. But other than that and the bent rear window, it’s pretty generic.
