Called SVT Yesterday

Ok, so i have been hearing rumors about a 2007 focus svt that is turbo AWD. I called SVT and they said they had nothing in the works for the focus or any future plans for the focus. People have said they have seen info. Can anyone show me some thing for prrof. I don't know if they are just not telling me or what.

you just called up, and chatted it up with them? Well, I'm certainly surprised that they didn't just email you the blueprints too ;)

There's more than just rumors floating around....there's test mules too. But you didn't hear that from me! :)

no the Focus will not get any SVT at this point.. ford screwed it up for now, and will not dump more money into it than necessary.

The turbo AWD is Mazdaspeed3 and Volvo C30...

if the 2008 Redesign goes well with the sales, then maybe SVT will get a task... otherwise we will have to wait for the MKIII Focus rumored in 2010/11 - reunited with the rest of the world.

well you didnt hear this from me , but as of now SVT's only project is the Ford Sports Trac , should be out by the fall , and there are "rumors" of an SVT fusion of which will be AWD turbo , like the mazdaspeed , the Fusion already has plans for an AWD fusion and a 2nd gen hybrid :)

Actually no i did not "just chat up with them" someone from a dealer (General Manager) told me to drop his name when i talked to them. I can't really read the stick so if you can post what it says that would be great. I would think a zx3 what be a better car than the sedan but that;s just me.

Fairly certain that is a Rouch project car.

had manufacturer tags, not the roush ones. Also, had a manu plate on it. Thats not the only one I've seen, but the only one I have a pic of.
