One good thing though is John Coletti (spelling?) from SVT and a couple of others at Ford got Carol Shelby to come back home to Ford, there is talk of a new Cobra and GT350/GT500 Mustang. That would be hellasweet.

IF we ever see our beloved SVT Focus again, hopefully it will be turbocharged

From what I've read, ST stands for "street tuned". It has a whopping 155hp. Supposedly like 10 more pounds of torque or something like that. Yay

Also read that there will be no SVT vehicles for '05, then the new 60's lookin mustang and the lightning will return in SVT versions for '06. Word is the focus will not be returning to SVT.

The SVT Focus is not going away, it is taking a one year hiatus. It will be back in 2006 with a turbo charger.
