Ford needs to be more innovative! I hung out at a Scion Dealer this weekend before the auto show because we knew the manager. Anyways, they have the greatest niche with cars. I think its great how they have the performance parts ready to bolt on for you and with a dealer warranty. Oh well i still love ford so thats enough said haha peace...

most americans aren't willing to shell out the money that european consumers are for fashionable autos.

1) about tripple repost...

2) because the only compact convertible that has ever sold in US has been the VW Cabrio, and it never sold well

3) Because it is ridiculous proposition for Americans to pay around 28k for a compact FWD car with under 200hp.... they will go buy a Mustang, or a Solstice etc... or a midsize like Sebring convertible or Camry Solar convertible

4) Because this is extavaganza for even for Europe..it is one of those bodystyles a compact model needs to have, but it never ever really sells.

5) because Ford of Europe is profitable and can entertain extravagant ideas like this one. Ford NA is still at loss and first needs to find profitable products in the mainstream, becaore thye try to push the market somewhere.

6) Because with no C1 Focus being in the US, bringin over a bodystyle that woul sell less that 1k a year would REALLY make sense....

Please search before you post.. this was discussed over and over again
