The 1990s were a golden age for sport compact cars, but not all of them made it to the United States. For example, the Mitsubishi FTO never arrived in America, likely because it would have stolen some sales from the brand's own Eclipse.

The little coupe featured a svelte shape. Initially, buyers were able to pick between a 123-horsepower (92-kilowatt) 1.8-liter four-cylinder or 168-hp (125-kW) 2.0-liter V6. Both mills were available with either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic.

While not a powerhouse, the FTO was reportedly a fun, little machine to drive. Now, Americans can find out what it's like behind the wheel.
