Picture looks faked. The roof lights, shadows under the car and the license plates look photoshopped.

And if you look at the placement of the cars, it looks like they are in a different dimensional plane from the rest of the picture... like they were cut & pasted in.

Do not think so, KL people said already on the road for past one yr. Those police cars are actually Mit Lancers.

The number plates already indicate over one yr old car.

Look at the shadows on 3071 and 4505. The one under 3071 leans slightly right while the one on 4505 leans slightly left. That's impossible without 2 suns. And shadows are never solid black like that.

There might be actual Lancers being used as police cars (quite possible actually as PDRM have always used Evos as pursuit chasers) but this particular photo isn't genuine.

Proton To Introduce Turbo-charged Engine Next Year

SHAH ALAM, Sept 23 (Bernama) -- Proton Holdings Bhd will introduce a new turbocharged engine next year with Proton Exora as the first model to use it.

Its group managing director, Datuk Syed Zainal Abidin Syed Mohamed Tahir, said the engine's performance would be equivalent to a two-litre engine.

"The engine will support Proton's future products in relation to extending enhanced performance, emissions and quality standards," he told reporters after the company's annual general meeting here Thursday.

Syed Zainal Abidin said before year-end, the national carmaker would launch a facelift version of an existing model and a new model in collaboration with Mitsubishi Motors.

The new model is a Waja replacement, he said.

He said the price of the Waja replacement would be slightly higher in line with the better performance and features.

"Proton has started on the development of the hybrid and electric vehicles which are currently being subjected to performance evaluation, testing and safety assessment," he said.

Syed Zainal Abidin said Proton was confident its export figure would be better than last fiscal year's due to growing interests in China, Thailand and Indonesia.

"We are confident it would surpass 30,000-mark this year," he said.

Meanwhile, Proton chairman, Datuk Seri Mohd Nadzmi Mohd Salleh, the national carmaker has no intention to sell Lotus Group International Ltd at the moment.

He said the focus right now was to turn the company around.

"We have no intention to dispose of Lotus at this point in time. By having Lotus within the group we will have better benefit," he said.

We, Mitsubishi Lancer GT/GLS/GTS/EX owners of Malaysia, would like to express our concerns and dissatisfaction on the following matters

1. The fact that the new Proton Waja is almost identical to the current Mitsubishi Lancer
2. The price of the new Waja is significantly lower than that of the Lancer

We purchased Mitsubishi Lancer believing in Mitsubishi and the quality that comes with the brand. To many of us who signed here Lancer is more than a car to us, IT'S PART OF OUR SOUL. We bought, enjoyed and loved our cars. The proof of our dedication and love for our ride can be evidenced at http://forum.lancerzone.com. However many of us were devastated and completely disappointed with the news of Proton Waja launching a new model which is so closely based on the lancer we purchased.

Multiple sources online and a local tv station revealed that the new Proton Waja will be 95% similar to the current Mitsubishi Lancer, with just minor modifications to the front and rear bumper and the changing of mitsubishi logo to proton logo. We were also informed that the new Waja will come in 1.8 manual and auto and 2.0 auto. Some even speculated that it uses the 4B11 MIVEC engine. And the prices offered were significantly lower than Lancer, with all the specs selling at less than RM100,000 while Lancer is selling at >RM120,000.

To be frank in Malaysia not everyone can afford to buy imported cars due to the high taxes incurred. Those who are unable to afford imported cars would have to settle with national car (Proton or Perodua). We bought Mitsubishi believing in the quality and CBU from Japan with 5 years warranty. And after spending our hard-earned money on what we believed to be an imported car, there comes along the news of Proton Waja, which brought us to wonder. Why are we spending so much to buy the future local car?

Many of our lancer friends are now contemplating selling the car or changing to other imported car brands and many have vowed not to buy another Mitsubishi vehicle ever again after this experience. In the midst of lots of anger and disappointment some of us decided to hold on to our beloved Lancers, some still having hopes on Mitsubishi, others are financially constricted and unable to change to another car. Some have just recently bought their cars from Mitsubishi dealers and have only had the car for a few weeks. Our greatest fears are for the resale value of our Lancers, and the flooding of Malaysian market with Lancers-wanna-be (those who purchased the new Waja and modify it to look exactly like Lancer exteriorly). Just think of this, if you bought a continental car, only to find that a local car manufacturer rebadged this and sell at much lower price, will you feel happy about it? Next time you are driving your continental car on the road, people will say, 'hey, look that's the new local XXX!' What will you feel? frustrated I would say. That's exactly what we, the Lancer owners are feeling right now.

We do think that the current Mitsubishi Lancer is a great success and has sold extremely well in Malaysia compared to its predecessors. The move to rebadge Lancer as Proton Waja is only going to destroy all the efforts of Mitsubishi up to this point.

Please hear our voices. We are voicing this out to you because WE STILL BELIEVE.

From a group of MITSUBISHI 9th generation Lancer owners in Malaysia
