That's also a picture that was used to push a rumor of a Focus RS, so in reality they don't know what they are looking at, it just seems to be a test mule wearing parts from many foci as well as some prospective new grilles and hideous flaps to cover up changes to the bodywork.

I am betting on Ford refreshing the Focus with the Catfish Grille, it won't be like the ST, but along the lines of the 2014 Fiesta, reason why they have it mocked up in the shape that they do to test the air flow, cooling and etc, easy to see the direction they are heading they just used a ST front because it's got a big mouth to allow them to do some quick testing. Car in the link below, does not even have the ST Spoiler. Just the front and rear, maybe we will see the "ST Appearance Package" since it's selling so poorly.

Even the 2014 Fiesta and Fiesta ST have similar looking features unlike the current Focus and ST or Electric Focus.

It's a muled up ST bumper cover with the aston styled grille from the Focus Electric opened up to look like the Fusion and Fiesta with other bits and bobs slapped on top to try and disguise the true look of the cover with hideous plastic patches over the cover.

It was allegedly also on the so called Focus RS mule, so chances are it's not what people are speculating about at all so far.

The car would appear to have started as an ST (full body kit, gauges) but has had wheels swapped and the ST spoiler removed as well.

2.3EB test mule more than likely.

Or the new 1.5 EB.

This camo'd Focus seems to be hiding both front and back changes

Don't forget that Lincoln is also going to have a Focus based car soon.

That one seems unlikely given the only spy shots seemed to show a mercury focus mule on the back of a Roush truck or similar en route to the scrap yard it seemed going though some neighborhood in dearborn.

The C557 program was the rumored Mercury Tracer, which has been dead and buried with the death of the brand, so unless this will be revived as a Lincoln nothing I saw or heard while working on Ford programs would show this to be the case so far. The only pictures of the alleged Lincoln Focus were wearing C557 identification on the camouflage, ergo that was a former test mule for the mercury not a lincoln as far as we know so far.

I mean it's possible, but unlikely that no one else would have actually heard of a Lincoln version other than the mooted Lincoln Concept C, which was supposed to be MK3 based, and the MK-C which is a Focus based lincoln CUV.
