We will be getting the euro focus in the states sometime soon. Whether the RS models will still be around remains to be seen.

Ford isn't going bankrupt, and is not asking for bailout money (though they did line up for a line of credit if necessary).

no body likes hatchback in the US. I really don't understand why. Hatchback is THE best type of car that fits almost all purposes (except for the Mini). It has bigger than sedan's cargo space, tons of head room in the back. Compact/Lightweight, good for track and RallyX... What's not to like?!

WTF People! Love the Hatchback already :P

I will not think for a second to trade my 135 coupe for either a 135 Hatchback or a 20xx Z4 Coupe (like the Z3 coupe) with the N54 in it. If they'd make a STi Limited Edition (leather and all the comfort) Hatchback, I'd consider that as well.

yes its true... they should have hot hatch backs like that here in the states... i dont know why they give us such crappy cars... just look at the north american focus... what a piece of junk compared to the euro version.

IMO that car looks like shit. Maybe the engine should come stateside but that lime green ricermobile can stay over there.Way too much stuff going on.
