    Rumorpile: A Higher-Performance Fiesta Is In The Pipeline


    • An Even Faster Fiesta Is In The Cards

    There could be a hotter Ford Fiesta in the wings. Autocar spoke with Tyrone Johnson, manager of Ford Performance (group that brings together RS and SVT). Johnson revealed that work was being done on a higher-performance Fiesta that would use the current chassis and will likely go on sale within the next couple of years.

    “There’s more to come from the current Fiesta,” said Johnson.

    Now Johnson didn't say if this new model would wear a ST or an RS badge.

    Autocar also asked Johnson about producing something akin to the Focus RS for the Fiesta.

    “If there’s a business case and if it’s technically feasible.”

    When pressed if a case could be made, he said “Theoretically, yes.”

    I think that this is a great idea. I have driven a 1.6 Fiesta (not an ST) and thought it has a sorted chassis and good acceleration. An RS version would be damn exciting I would imagine and a great addition to the Ford lineup, especially if it comes to Europe.

    I really like that concept. Nice looking car with all the bells, and whistles. I remember my brother had a Fiesta back in the 80's. I loved that little car glad to see there still around, and getting a sporty makeover.
