They havent said exactly but they keep implying a yes. They keep saying its a "global car."


I like it overall, the inside looks really nice. I could do with out the extra set of doors and not a really a fan of the wheels or center exit exhaust. I do wonder how it will compare price wise with the ms3, that has to be its nearest competitor. Really hope they keep it less than $25k. Also hope they keep the weight reasonable, a MS3 weighs in around 3300lbs...

people are speculating 30k for this car.


they need to keep it under 25k to make it competitive (ie: MS3 territory) they creep up on 30k with the price, and that is entry level BMW territory, not to mention WRX and EVO


oh, and the MS3 weighs 3200-3300 lbs....not 2300 like the above poster states.

Finally! I was planning on trading in the SVTF for a Taurus or new Explorer next spring but I'll let the wifey have one of those....

Now I can justify buying a FORD turbocharged 5 door with extra space for the baby!

100x WOOT!

why is everybody building cars with ridiculously large grills/front end? Mazda, GM, Ford, SAAB to name a few. It DOES NOT LOOK GOOD. what happened to aerodynamics?

That saves us the trouble of clearing room for a Front mount intercooler.

This should land in the $25k price range. I'm in either way.
Since the last perfomance model was called an ST170 in europe, then the american version is likely to be the next SVT.

I can't wait to see the official release at the paris autoshow! So far I love everything I see except that front bumper needs a little bit of a re-work.
All we need now is prices and release dates!
