When will we begin to see focus concepts?

alright so now that we know what the new 3 looks like how long do you think it will be till we start seeing illegally obtained cameraphone pics of the new Focus design and possible artists renderings and test mules or the car in camo? If the car is slated for 2011(correct?) then it shouldn't be too long before we start to see some stuff. That's usually the way these things go so i'd say maybe towards the end of december or maybe in January... If that's too soon then I would expect something to come out sometime in the first half of 09. So that's my prediction, at the earliest, late this month, and at the latest, around august of 09 or so.... or anytime in between. If not between those times I would find that kind of strange and dissapointing. This is a popular car and most popular cars get hyped way in advance, at least a year... shoot, look at the camaro. I know, it's the camaro, but still I think the focus deserves a lot of attention too. Fords balls are on the line here and the focus, along with the new fiesta, are going to have to be amazing because they will be key to Ford's survival in the near future. So what do you guys think? IDK, maybe I'm wrong. Let the discussion begin.

I don't think there will be any 'camo' or other shots your describe because (I thought) Ford had already posted the cars. Only question that was remaining concerned the power train (and I thought that had been mostly resolved as well). The latest Ford Mag even had them in it. So don't think there keeping it secret. 8-D

What mag are you looking at^^ I have yet to see anything design-wise about the next Focus. Every pic I have seen floating around the internet is just a rendered speculation.

Oh! you got an 02. Sorry! I bought an 07. Ford sends me this mag every 3 months or so. Latest edition has the Focus, that other smaller car (name???) and the 'euro' delivery van. Just the power has not been decided (other than we won't be seeing any turbo's for awhile). 8-D.
There was another thread they were talkin about it (the new Focus) in more detail. Search for that I guess. You can also see them online, think TS cars news has pics.

From what I have read the new MKIII Focus styling has not been finalized yet, hence no mules with camo in Europe or the U.S. yet. The North American version of the MKIII is not due until MY 2011, to be introduced sometime in 2010.

well i suppose my point is that no design has been finalized, so we don't know exactly what it is going to look like. I get that mag too, though not lately. If you are talking about that ugly, stub nosed, white rendering of the focus I thought that was just an idea. That thing is hideous to me. I was hoping it would look like the euro's just a little bit more evolved and refined. I'll look for that thread though, see what you are talking about.
