If anyone knows of a 2009 to 2012 Eclipse GT with every option available that is for sale please let me know. I need to replace my 2009 Eclipse GT Coupe that was absolutely perfect until it was destroyed by an inattentive driver. My other car is a yellow 2005 Honda S2000 and my Honda CBR1000RR bike are both yellow. Obviously I am obsessed with yellow; though an Eclipse that is mint in any color would be fine. I really loved my Eclipse and will miss driving it.
I certainly appreciate any help that you can give me.

I just found my yellow with all options in July, so they are out there. Good luck, man.

Maybe liking the Speedracer character and yellow cars are linked somehow? I also had a yellow 2003 Celica GTS before my Eclipse. I wish Mitsubishi would have made an AWD gen 4 Eclipse. I had a1994 and 1997 Eclipse GSX AWD; I really loved those cars with the 4g63 turbo engine. They were a blast to drive in the snow.
How do you like your Solstice; is it a GXP turbo?

You may be right, because I also love Racer X's yellow race car, lol

I had a 2000 Celica GTS, but it was red

I would love if my Eclipse was AWD, part of the reason i got it was for the FWD

I like my Solstice a lot, and get tons of compliments, but, no, it is not the turbo. I was searching for a yellow 370z when i bought it ( but couldn't find one )

I know; it is hard to find any, yet alone nice, 2009 thru 2012 Eclipse GT’s that are listed for sale in the whole country. I found only one with every catalog option like mine; it was a black 6 speed in Columbus Ohio with only 54K miles and had prior repaired damage to the right rear. The four others I found were one red one blue and two other black ones; none of which were in that great condition and most not well optioned.
I almost forgot I had two other yellow cars: a 1994 Dodge Stealth RT TWIN TURBO and years ago a 1970 Corvette LT1 350 370hp t-top coupe. While searching I found a BRAZEN ORANGE 2008 Solstice GXP 5 speed nearby in Connecticut; I live in Massachusetts. Red and yellow make orange so it’s sort of yellow. I don’t know how I almost forgot my yellow 1968 Lotus Elan roadster; I was absolutely obsessed with those cars when I was a kid. Hearing that I’m looking to replace my Eclipse, a friend of mine wants me to buy his mint (never out in the rain or snow) red 2004 Mach 1 Mustang with the Cobra 32 valve aluminum block motor and automatic transmission (very rare). I don’t know; I was very happy with my Eclipse and would have happily driven it for years. So my search continues.

My insurance company is offering me $9000 for my car. If you’d care to share with me; what was Carvana asking for your car? It would give me some good comparison pricing to negotiate with them. Mitsubishi dealers near me think mint 2009 GT’s would sell between $9k and $10k.

That's probably about right, the 100k mi GTs were around 9,000, but mine was super low mileage, so the blue book on it was actually 13,000

In the case link doesn't work, it's located in Michigan, manual transmission.

Hi;
A yellow 2009 GT identical to mine turned up in Spearfish, SD. The only problem was it had repaired body damage. Oh well. I’ll keep looking

Thanks for the lead; I’ll see if I can find it on Facebook.
