    Ford Announces February 3rd As the Date for Focus RS

      A Date Has Been Announced For The Focus RS

    One of the vehicles we were expecting to see at the Detroit Auto Show but didn't show was the Focus RS. Well it appears Ford has something special for that. The company has released a teaser video showing a camouflaged Focus RS doing a bit of sliding around in wet and dry conditions. The video also has a date, February 3rd. This is when Ford will reveal the Focus RS to everyone.

    Those hoping for Ford to release any technical details will be disappointed to hear that no information was released.

    wild that they still haven't released any new information regarding the technical specs of the new Focus but still extremely exciting to see. Really jazzed to see what new info is revealed this year. Making serious base-line improvement with the Focus could give Ford a huge boost in the mid-size class for me this year.

    I can't wait to see the new Focus RS. The video isn't telling us very much apart from that date. Oh, the new RS can slide, that's for sure, but I don't know if that's enough to beat the VW GTI or the A-Class AMG.

    • Now...to the Corvette http://www.superiorglassworks.com/v/vspfiles/assets/images/side-by-side%20web%20size.jpg   The Corvette, BEFORE it was dreamt up to be a mid-engined affair, and THAT was in 1959...  It was also dreamt up to be a snazzy people haulin' station wagon.  And THAT was in 1954.  Corvette ultimately did not spawn that trim, it did however, have factory backed hatched to emulate station wagon-ess. http://www.stingray.nu/aften/16.jpg   People obviously have spent money converting their Corvettes this way.   So...again, while YOU dont think so, many others do and while GM is in the business of making money,  and IF GM succeeds in engineering PROPER Corvette models into a Corvette brand making sure these other models fit in a Corvette kinda way, there is really nothing to add here. Not form me, not from you.  Corvette is what makes it Corvette. And THAT is up to the engineering team alongside the marketing team.   And THAT all there is to it!  Good Bye.  
    • And more talking out of your ass... Are you sure that a 911 is NOT an SUV? I WILL prove it wrong to you.... Much like the General purpose "Jeep" we like to talk about, the 911 has strange beginnings and endings. The 911 started out as a VW Beetle.  Hilter's and Nazi Germany's people's car.   Hence the name Volkswagen.  Porsche, the dude, designed the Beetle.  It had a different name when it was Nazi's people's car. But the Beetle was ALSO a troop carrier. It wasnt a 4x4 machine like the Jeep was, but it WAS an offroader troop carrier for the Geramn Army. Oh...it also floated   Why all this? Because the 911 was ultimately a Beetle.  After the war, Porsche for reasons, and for a long story short, the 911 was born from a troop carrrying off roaded military vehicle that was designed to also be used on the water, people's car.   The Jeep was truly a SUV while the Beetle had to be massaged into one, but it WAS sold to civilians AS a SUV. But THIS is where it gets interesting as a 911.  Forget about VW dune buggies, Porsche 911s raced in the dunes   But most phoqued up thing is that Porsche...just released, by their OWN engineering a 911 offroader...   And THAT is as close to a 911 SUV that we have.  So when you say that 911 is NOT an SUV...well,  STOP talking out of your ass... A 911 is many a thing, and it was ALWAYS a SUV deep down inside.  Complete with 4x4.  Unlike the Kubelwagen/VW Thing before it.    
    • What double standard? The Escalade did NOT need a high performance version up until THIS year. The Escalade got one, THIS year.   So you mention Escalade as a sports car and not as a high performance model. You threw in a Tahoe for good measure. I gotcha I gotcha.  Problem is, Chevrolet tried the truck as a car based truck and as a muscle car and several times with several different body sizes across 5 decades.   With various degrees of success in each decade. With the last one actually replacing a legit sports car.  The SSR tried to replace the Camaro.  And in Australia, when the Camaro came back with the Zeta platform along with its platform mate the Pontiac G8, in Australia, the Maloo was born.  A true sports car as the Zeta platform sedan was a great sports sedan that the final version of it, the Chevy SS that we got here, is considered by MANY Eurosnobs to be the REAL spiritual successor to the E39 BMW M5.  Eurosnobs of all people think that... And some Australians even swapped the front end for a Camaro nose... Chevrolet done this Tahoe sports car you say plenty of times...  So...yet again, you just talk out of your ass... And...more talking out of your ass The phoque are you talking about? Jeep was a fast way condensed made up word that WW2 American G.I.s used to call their troop carrier. It was a general purpose vehicle affectionectly known as JEEP.  General purpose became Jeep.   Which became a phoquing brand. Which begat station wagons Which branched out to    But...this also And had AMC NOT gone bankrupt, a legit JEEP platform mate to that Eagle would have been sold side by side in that time frame. But ultimatley, it DID lead to this eventually.  and this but was ALWAYS there, though.  BUT became a BRAND    But... it DID start out ONLY as a MILITARY troop transport and support vehicle.  General purpose was its name.  and AFTER the war was sold to civilian farmers http://www.gannett-cdn.com/-mm-/aaa527894a8a41c93d8ce192d1488018c3d414d7/r=500x326/local/-/media/2018/06/03/YorkDailyRecord/wp-PPYR-Yorkspast-8806-FarmJeepB.jpg?width=660&disable=upscale&format=pjpg&auto=webp     You dont get it...  But I showed you with the Jeep.  It dont matter if YOU dont like it.    It only matters if OTHERS, MANY others like it.  And with the Mustang, PLENTY of others LOVE it. To the tune of 50 000 untis per year sold.   And with the Mustang, the Mach-E is NOT just an SUV, its an ELECTRIC SUV.   And a very EXPENSIVE EV at that. Starting price of 47 thousand US dollars.  A FAR cry from the secretary straight line 6,  two door coupe based on an econobox Falcon waaaaaaaaaaay back in Nineteen Sixty Four (and a half).      
    • And I showed you, using actual history here, that your Escalade reference was dumb in comparison. You remark about the Mach-E but clearly it has not hurt the Mustang brand at all, which is NOW your main issue with the Vette name. The Mustang is still a top seller in its class and they keep upgrading it with every passing year. Clearly adding the Mach-E Mustang to its stable has done ZERO to hurt it. Thank you for providing a real world example, although I don't think you meant for it to be used against you lol. All you have shown here is that it is your "opinion" that they are not right and that you don't like them. None of that suggests failure of the brands in question whatsoever.    And I am sorry but you, of ALL people, don't get to talk about names and brand equity. If GM doesn't use a name for a car, it is wrong to you. If they over use a name, it is wrong to you. Sorry, but you do not get to have it both ways here. Just skip the fact that these types of "stipulations" of yours have NEVER been extended to your favorite brand. Again, you really want to bring up double standards here?
    • I used the Escalade having a family of sedans and coupe variants as an example of how stupid a Corvette SUV is.  I don't like how there is Range Rover Velar, Range Rover Sport, Range Rover Evoque.   I don't like the Mustang Mach-E name, because it isn't a Mustang.  As you pointed out, 60 years of the Corvette being a 2 seat sports car, now it will be an SUV.  That's throwing 60 years of brand equity in the trash. The Corvette should be a Corvette.  If Chevy wants to make a 1,000 HP SUV like the Model X Plaid, call it something else, make up a new name, resurrect a dead name form the past, I don't care, but an SUV isn't a Corvette.  I think it's dumb, but if they want to trash the Corvette name it doesn't really matter to me, I don't own GM stock and I am not buying a Corvette.
