What if all these rumors about newer faster ST's is wrong
Ford reveals ST-Line Fiesta, Focus and Mondeo at Goodwood | Auto Express
Ford just announced the new "ST-Line" which can be explained best as ST-Lite.
We all assumed that Ford would up their ST line now that the RS is out, but what if they are neutering it?
Granted, this is at goodwood and may be a UK only thing, but the last thing I want to see is a watered down ST in any flavor.

why? you'd be able to have a fiesta that barely goes, a fiesta that's supposed to go but doesn't really, or a fiesta that (feels like it) goes like stink that you still want more from anyway, all in an $80 a month range. when i had a fiesta the wastegate failed and it felt way underpowered but still pretty quick...but the difference a functioning wastegate made was worth more than what the difference in price would be.
i can see performance room for a focus...150 to 250 is a pretty big hp gap, and there's a **** ton you can do to fix a basic focus and make it more enjoyable. i thought i was gonna tip over taking turns faster than 15mph. lol
Had my ST for 1000 miles now and she's running great!
Well I just bought a 2016 st and hope I don't get any of these issues!
Ugh I'm still waiting for it to be delivered to the dealer.
I'd be happy if they could shed 200 lbs off the curb weight some how.
I understand that there's always going to be some sort of competition between manufacturers, but, can't they just for once just make something that will be badass to the true enthusiasts? Even in the low range of its comp class, I'd rather have an st platform mondeo.
