We've got a release window.
From the Ford website:


So, no more "early 2012", now they're saying "summer 2012" Hopefully by that they mean June 20th.

I would buy the wagon over the hatch any day. But alas I won't be buying one at all for at least 5 years or more.

Anyone else cross shopping the ST with a Golf R? The Golf is likely to be a fair bit more, but come with AWD and a bit more refinement. I guess we'll see how much more when we get prices for both of these cars.

Yeah no, the golf isn't ugly, but it's sure not my taste, and for the price of the Golf R I would much rather just buy an STI.

The appeal of the ST for me is to get a kick butt hot hatch for mid-to-upper $20's (my guess is the ST will run between $26-28k, just over the MS3). A $33-35k VW Golf has absolutely zero appeal to me. Just my own personal opinions though.

Of course to be fair, I am sure there are a bunch of VW fanatics laughing at those Focus fanatics and asking why anyone would ever want a Focus

Well, I don't have the best photoshop skills. I've mostly just done some creative filtering or pixel art for video games. This is the result of about 5 minutes, so don't be too judgmental.

But, here's a rudimentary design idea I had for the ST.


... very rudimentary. But, you get the basic idea. I'm sure I could do better if I got my graphics tablet out. But it's just not worth the hassle right now lol. Maybe Ford will have some stripes from the factory.
Anyway, what I'm thinking is race red with black racing stripes, and an outline of the side molding. Similar to what's offered on the Mustang.

^ Sexy! I'll take it in either white with blue stripes or blue with white stripes!

Or the tangerine scream and flat Ti gray stripes?
