Fusion GT and other notes.

I was reading through a few of the car mags at work and came across a few things. Sorry if they've already been mentioned. Apparently SVT will be working on cars under the GT tag. The first appears to be the Fusion GT in 2010. It will have the 3.5 ecoboost with 340 hp. It's being called the poor man's S4.http://www.motortrend.com/features/a..._gt/index.html
The cars that were showed in the london auto show were being mentioned and the Focus RS was in there. It stated that while we will get the new platform it's doubtful we'll see the RS, but Ford is working on merging the RS team with SVT, so we'll have SOMETHING at least. Final note, There is a mexican car company Mastretta that will make their cars available in U.S. They are powered by 250 horsepower from a turbocharged 2.0 duratec. Also something I found interesting. Ford UK engineers have developed a new kind of strut and steering knuckle combination that they claim completely eliminates torque steer, so now they don't have to use AWD setups in performance vehicles that would otherwise be FWD.
