Sorry if this is old news, but i got an article in google alerts letting me know that there was some talk about SVT and where it is now and where it is going. Interesting quick read, most of it i already knew but still good to hear they are still alive and kicking.

I wouldnt be suprised if Ford made a new SVTF using the Mazdaspeed3 engine (2.3 Turbo).

We have been begging for an srt-4 beater since 2003. Ford has even tested turbo foci..I won't hold my breath, but maybe would be nice turbo with NO stupid AWD... Awd is for soccer moms ( no offense to soccer moms )

you didn't read the article then..

"SVT also will lend its expertise to other Ford divisions down the road, “but our focus is on Ford right now,” says Thai-Tang. Was Thai-Tang’s use of the word “focus” a hint of future product? Nah."

it does mention it, just not the way we'd like to see.

Here's hoping for a turbo 2.3 Focus. Hopefully they'll give it a couple years though, so I can get out of college and actually have money for one. [^]

Anyways, lets face it. Ford = American and all they are going to hook up are the Mustang and the f-150....they were even talking about an SVT Sport Trac...talk about stupid.

Due to Ford NA's stupidity...we'll probably never see another SVT focus or anything much more powerful that what's in them right now. When Ford NA thinks performance...they think Mustang and F150 and that's all they care about. They view the Focus as an economy car and nothing else. Sad, but true.

Oh, and about the AWD...I'd like to see it as an option IF anything ever came of the focus. But I don't think anything special will ever come for it.
