Ford, however, has stirred our interest by promising that it will reveal information on “the next Focus performance car” at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September

All these clips are like watching Aerobic Strip Tease on video. You're waiting for the unveiling, but it can't come soon enough.
I know right! I am subscribed to 4 different places so I can get the ST news as soon as it comes out. I usually see these videos about 2 minutes after they post :lol:
Stick with Focaljet...those guys are always in the know.
Check it every morning, they usually get the info before the rest of us. I check there and focusfanatics, they usually give good info.
Those communities are so awesome...I was saddened to a point to leave the Focus realm because I met a lot of great people on FocalJet and made a few good friends in the process. But the Fusion grew on me and felt more 'grown-up' and that it was the car I should be driving once I found my career job.


That hot-hatch demon inside me misses my old custom-turbo'd ZX3 terribly. When the ST makes it to shore, I will be heading down to my local Spring Hill Ford dealer to ask for a test drive...

The rest will probably be history if that car is anywhere near what the Euro ST is. Center-exit exhaust is soooo sexy :drool:

See less See more
I only have one problem with that center exhaust. Where do you put the hitch to trailer the jetski for a day on the lake?
On the 1998 F-150, duh!

Sports-cars are not meant for towing.
What if you don't have the $$ for a 150? Plus could you imagine how fun it would be to be doing 100mph with a trailer :lol: Would scare the crap outta just about everyone on the road!
You're nuts! :lol:
It's the same guy in the same development car...just different edits of his commentary. Why dont they just release the whole thing?!?
I noticed that. I want to see more so bad! And I want pics of the engine bay! :drool:

I thought we already knew those numbers ... :thinking:
It used to be 247 hp and a different torque, I can't remember what. So it sounds like they upped the boost a tiny bit or something. Plus they confirmed that it will have a 6spd (was only speculated to have the 6 spd not the 5) :)
Fair enough. I bet they either raised the RPMs by 500 to reach 250, or slightly revised the air intake.

In any's a great starting point for a highly-modded, impossible-to-drive FWD mean machine :smokinamd:

Though a small part of me is disappointed it has less power than the Mazdaspeed3, I have a feeling it will beat it to (legal freeway speeds) stock-for-stock due to the throttle dithering that car does to manage torque. Ford bothers to put in a good suspension/steering solution.
