Is SVT RIP?
#1199313 - 03/24/06 05:19 AM

I thought I posted this yesterday as I was running out the door to catch an airplane.

This article was on the email update from Auto News yesterday.

SVt is dead, ford decided to lose a HUGE fanbase, pretty much everyone ive known who has bought an SVT, has bought another, and said they would buy another..

But they did! Haven't you seen the US "ST" sedans?

What a joke! They probly heard all kinds of people begging for a "Focus ST." Some person with good intentions probly thought it would be a good idea and sent it up to get approved since it's what people want.

So then it got to someone who decided to scrap the importing idea and create another basic trim level of the current car and figured people are stupid and will buy it just because of the "ST" badge

Of course, that's just my take on it! Now if they could get the Focus RS over, that would be even sweeter!
::hint hint nudge nudge FORD::
it could compete directly with the regular WRX... maybe taking part of it's market away

But no, if they did bring it over, it would probly cost more than an STi... or worse, they would just throw the looks on without the 212hp/229lb-ft turbo 2.0L Duratec 4 banger...
