I doubt that Ford will do that any time soon. The Focus is still one of their best selling vehicles next to their trucks. Besides, they still have to bring the Euro MKII body style over to this side of the pond otherwise I'm gonna be pissed!!!

im sure they'll keep it around for awhile. kinda thinking about it now, they really need to make something off of it. like a high powered SVT to compete with the srt-4, cobalt ss etc.

have patience my friends.

there will be news about it.. we do not know when and we do not know whether we will like the news, but in the next year or 2 there will be news about Focus...

the worst scenario: - They gve it the gilette grille and call it a day (there is a picture of a mule looking like this).
the best scneario - we get MkIII focus in early 2008

Either way I doubt there will be any more exciting model of the Focus than the surrent ST... Focus jsut does not have the sales and reputation to hold up something like the 2.3DISI from Mazda.. However if the revive it properly, I have no doubts the ST designation models will be much more interesting.

well see thats the thing, Ford is not focusings on competiting in the sport compact performance market. Right now their eyes are on remolding to boost their sales, making their US cars more "american" and the main most highest priority of Ford right now is saftey and better fuel economy(hybrids). So unfortunatly, dont expect something like this anytimes soon.
