DIAMOND-STAR CELEBRATES 400,000TH VEHICLE AND FOURTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR ON CAR & DRIVER'S '10 BEST' LIST

DIAMOND-STAR CELEBRATES 400,000TH VEHICLE AND FOURTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR
                 ON CAR & DRIVER'S '10 BEST' LIST
    NORMAL, Ill., Jan. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Diamond-Star Motors (DSM) has much to celebrate today as the 400,000th vehicle came off the line. Since Job One in September 1988, the Central Illinois manufacturer of the two door Mitsubishi Eclipse, Eagle Talon and Plymouth Laser has watched its cars succeed with enthusiastic car buyers in the United States, Canada, Japan and Europe.
    These highly successful sports coupes have earned a long list of awards from the experts including the demanding automotive enthusiast magazines.  For the fourth consecutive year, "Car and Driver" has included DSM's sports cars on its "Ten Best" list.  In 1989, the publication cited the Eclipse and Laser with "enough performance to embarrass a Porsche 944."  In 1992, the kudos continue with "Car and Driver" noting that the DSM cars have earned their honors "by giving the enthusiast as fine a combination of value, good looks, and tummy- tightening performance as could be found anywhere at any price."
    DSM President and CEO Tsuneo Ohinouye notes, "This is an unprecedented accomplishment.  No other sports car has been chosen four times in a row for the 'Ten Best' list -- and we did it from the very first vehicle ever produced at DSM.
    "Keeping our customers satisfied is the way to help ensure ongoing success in the marketplace.  Soon we will be tested again as we step into the arena with brand new vehicles."
    Diamond-Star Motors, a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Motors Corp., produces the Mitsubishi Eclipse and Mirage, the Plymouth Laser and the Eagle Talon and Summit.
