In my opinion the banner is just a display graphic, not a representation of what they're advertising at the Detroit show. And it looks to be Gotta Have It Green.
Oh, well i suppose that sounds more reasonable...still hoping they put out a nice focus, with some good numbers!

Not likely as the RS has way too much going for it. Perhaps something nearly as fun...but not a killer by any stretch.

Don't forget, back in the day Shelby also stepped up the Dodge Omni GLH and came out with the GLHS.

GT350 is exclusive to the mustang, as is GT500.

Frankly, unless it comes with AWD - cramming more power into the Focus is an exercise in futility. The ST is already beyond the limits of traction. Make it handle better and perform with the power it already has.

Lies. I experienced ZERO traction loss via throttle stab in the ST I test drove.

Unless it's bouncing the tires ALL the way through first and making them scream for mercy if not on perfect road in second, there's power to be put down.
