2005 Svt

I was wondering if anyone has heard anything about whether Ford will be making a 2005 SVT Focus. I have an 02 ZX3 and I will be ready to move up to the SVT in 05....wanted to get one now but buying a townhouse put that on hold.

Ah-yup. If you wanted to buy a brand new SVT then you have missed your opportunity. The SVT's production has ceased and will not resume. Who knows? There may be leftover stock of 04's still at the dealers next year. There are still some 03's floating around at dealers now, so a "new" 04 might still be available next year...

That would be pretty sweet if they made one for 06 or 07, Not that I would have the money to get one, but it would be cool still, lol.

the will be NO SVTS FOR 2005 not even cobras or lightnings according to the offical statement releasted by Ford Motor Co. The Cobra/Lightning will be reveiled in 2006 model year in their new, very expensive forms but the SVT Focus is no longer in existance, it doesnt fit into their mold of top-quality exotic cars like the cobra and lightning will become...lemme find that link to that statement

ok found the link from the other board

hopefully ford will be smart enough to import a euro model over, because they are gonna piss a lot of potential owners off by not producing the SVT focus anymore. i was really planning on getting one in about 3 or 4 years when im done with the zx3. maybe i will be able to get an rs or cosworth :)

Read it in Motor Trend. No SVT's for '05 and no more SVT Focus..ever.

But I read that when they bring the Cobra and the Lightning back it won't be SVT anymore they are trying to call them Shelby's?

Ford is probably going to try to cash in on the Shelby history. I doubt they'll import a Euro Focus model. They would still have to modify the drivetrain and body work to meet crash test requirements. If they are going to go through that trouble, they'll modify a car that's already met those requirements domestically.

How many SVT Focuses did they sell and how many did they want to sell? That might tell the story right there. If they didn't even come close to the sales target, then they'll quietly and conveiniently drop it with the rest of the models and not bring it back. Unless market forces compell them too.

Thanks for the info....thats too bad...I was really looking forward to getting a new SVT. After what the previous owner did to my ZX3(and I am just now finding) I wanted to get a new Focus...looks like it will be another ZX3 now...maybe with the 2.3 and then build it up.
