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.”
