Proton Holdings Bhd expects to launch a new sedan model before the end of this year to replace the Waja. All the preparations have been done. Proton hope to launch it in the last quarter of this year of 2010. Now Proton are working with other original equipment manufacturers.
According to market talks, the new model will display a copy of version Mitsubishi Lancer 2.0 GT but use the engine with a capacity of slightly smaller 1.8-litre. It is believed that the Mitsubishi feature in Proton is the result of development engineering cooperation between Proton and Mitsubishi Motors Corporation, which is also a shareholder.
Believe it or not, the new Waja Replacement is getting near to its launch. Although it is not official yet, so many news regarding this new awaited Waja Lancer are spreading throughout the internet. And the latest was this poster, which should be internally circulated, but managed to be leaked to internet. Even though the status of the poster does not confirmed that it is the much said Waja Replacement, but we can all guess that it is the said model, unless Proton is going to launch another new Sedan.
