The Mitsubishi Eclipse is a sport compact car that was in production between 1989 and 2011. A convertible body style was added for the 1997 model year. It was named after an unbeaten 18th-century English racehorse which won 26 races, and has also been sold as the Eagle Talon and the Plymouth Laser captive imports through Mitsubishi Motors' close relationship with the Chrysler Corporation.
The Eclipse was officially marketed in North America, Oman, South Korea, the Philippines, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, UAE, and China. At the end of August 2011, the final Eclipse rolled off the assembly line, and was auctioned off, the proceeds donated to charity. Grand total Eclipse production was 906,876 units.
The Eclipse, and its DSM brethren, have seen competition in Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) events. In 2012, a heavily built and tuned Mitsubishi Eclipse piloted by Mark Rybníček won the Czech Hill Climb championship.
