Hoping that with the debut of the performance focus, itll also be the debut for the 3 door hatch. Maybe Ford was saving the best for last and will only offer this in a 3 door variant, at least for the first model year and then maybe they'll offer the 5 door as well.

Well...going by when I finish college, give myself a year or so to get a good job and get my feet under me and I could likely buy one of these the second or third year they produce them (if they do it for more than a year.)

IF it actually comes, I may fell I should've of waited instead of giving in and buying a MS3 since I felt that was the only way I could get an affordable high performance Focus like car!

Wow that looks sexy. Gotta wait till Nov/Dec 2013 till I get one though unless I pay my current Focus off early. Either way I don't like getting new cars in late fall/winter. Had bad luck with that timeframe.

Thats Awesome,, As mentioned, how many really has the cash to throw down on an RS? I know I don't. Even if I did have 40 grand for a C- segment pissed off people mover, I would still take a pass. But I like the ideal of the ST, hits a happy medium for price and performance.

Now can we please loose the rear doors please?

Im gonna be critical here... I hate the front fascia and the stance. Make it a 3 door, change the front bumper design, and give it a .75" drop and Ill sign my life away. I just dont like 5 doors, and I especially dont like the design of the front bumper.

But the powerplant? YUM.

i agree, for a performance model it needs to look a lot more agressive...

I don't think what we are seeing is any actual pictures of it, just pictures of a regular focus associated with the ST article. Look out GTI , and MS3... P.S. I don't care if it come in 3 door, the MS3 is 5 door, and everyone loves them...

Posted via FF Mobile Everyone loves them bc that is the only style hatch that was offered. Nobody knows if a three door would look awesome. But with the focus every hot performance version has pretty much been a three door with a five door as an option. Imo the ST will be were its at. Thats why Im super excited about this compared to an RS. Even if I had 40k to spend on a car, making it possible to get an rs i probably still wouldnt. Id get the ST save lits of money and still be happy and crap in my pants everytime I took my ST out for a drive. Im sure many people out there feel the same way. Im just making little statements and preparing myself, bc I know that in october when this thing is revealed there will be a few posts saying...its not an rs, rs or no sale, blah blah blah . Lol
