There’s a golden era of performance cars that was rolled out in the early 90s that today are among the most desirable of the rad generation of tuner cars. The Dodge Stealth and Mitsubishi 3000GT are among them, but finding high-quality examples is surprisingly hard. This 1993 Dodge Stealth R/T Twin Turbo is an exception to the rule, clearly having been loved since new and showered with some nice upgrades. It was originally listed in October 2021 on Craigslist in Colora, Maryland with just over 163,000 miles and a mint interior for $11,500. Comparing this price against the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool indicates this seller has priced his Stealth more than fairly, as an “Excellent” example is worth $19,500 and a “Good” model valued at $15,000. If you are serious about buying this turbocharged Stealth, you can start the conversation by emailing the seller here. When you do, please remember to mention you saw his coupe featured here on GuysWithRides.com.
When the Mitsubishi 3000GT burst onto the scene, it seemingly was an instant kingpin of the Japanese supercar space. Any road test comparison involving the Toyota Supra and Mazda RX-7 often included the twin-turbocharged Mitsubishi, called the VR4 if found in the top-tier-spec. The Dodge version was a bit toned down, still available with the turbocharged powerplant and all-wheel drive, but without the seemingly over-indulgence in technological features that Mitsubishi prioritized in its packaging. The Mitsu also came in a top-down flavor with a retractable roof design, but the Dodge remained a hardtop throughout its lifetime. To this day, you’ll still find the base-spec, naturally-aspirated models of both brands littering crummy used car lots; the twin-turbocharged R/T and VR4s are much harder to find.
The MotorWeek RetroReview YouTube Channel provides their first impressions of the Dodge Stealth RT when it debuted in 1991:
The seller’s car is, first and foremost, in very nice condition for the higher mileage it has. The interior is truly a treat with black leather buckets in seemingly excellent condition. The same goes for the bodywork, which, at least in the photos provided, looks laser-straight with good luster. The modifications present will likely turn some buyers off who fear the owner has been adjusting boost on a near-constant basis, but to me, this car has the vibes of being with a mature owner. The work looks well done, with a larger intercooler nestled behind the bumper; the auxiliary gauges cleanly mounted to the A-pillar; the SSR wheels a pricey and tasteful upgrade; and a new set of tires. The seller also promises lots of recent maintenance in its history file, too. Overall, this looks like a very clean example of a desirable and rarely-seen performance car that has enjoyed a better life than most other surviving examples. Good luck with the purchase if you bring this Stealth R/T Twin Turbo home.
Here’s the seller’s description:
“1993 Stealth. Twin Turbo. 163,xxx miles. Nice condition for its age and mileage. Lots of new maintenance items as well as new SSR wheels and new tires all around. Beautiful seats and overall great condition interior.“
