Petition Mitsubishi To Build New Pajero Evolution

I think this is a very good time for a ultra-capable minitruck, and off-roaders are really into the nostalgic look. Why not build a new retro Mitsubishi Pajero Evolution mini SUV? How many names on a petition would it take to get Mitsubishi to resume manufacturing Pajeros, specifically the Evo?

Please sign this petition Mitsubishi to build the Pajero Evolution.

The Mitsubishi Pajero Evolution was a very limited production minitruck meant for the Paris Dakar Rally. It has won the famous Paris Dakar Rally more times than any other truck (Guinness World Record). Why were only 2,500 to 2,700 of this extreme vehicle were ever made, and only sold in Japan? Mitsubishi had to sell 2,500 models for public use in order to qualify with the regulations of its specific race series (homologation).

The Pajero Evolution boasted modestly its 3.5 liter naturally aspirated MPFI (no turbo charger or super charger) 24 valve V-6 gas engine unique to the Evo, producing 276 hp and 256 lb-ft of torque and 4.64:1 axle ratio. They are only JDM trucks, so they are all right hand drive.

To me, the most identifying feature of the Pajero Evolution is its odd rear spoiler. LMK in the comments below if you think it would be desirable by today's minitruck enthusiasts.

Has Anyone Ever Petitioned Auto Manufacturers For A Build?

I wonder if this has been attempted by anyone in the past. I wonder if automobile manufacturers are in tune with their markets to that extent enough to care what their public thinks or wants.

To whom would we send a document titled "Petition Mitsubishi To Build New Pajero Evolution"?
