Holy Crap! I really hope the ST gets a boost. If the fiesta will be at 246 HP, the RS at 350 HP, then can they bump the ST to around 305 HP? I don't want them to have the ST get lost in the shuffle and force the consumer to go for the RS or the smaller Fiesta. I love the fiesta as a firey little monster, but the size is a bit too small for me.

EDIT: My bad, as posted elsewhere on the forum it looks like the ST is getting bumped to 275 HP next year.

I believe this will happen just as much as the next Focus ST having a 1.5 4cyl putting out 275. And those photos are photoshopped. But if you want to believe the hype go for it.

Haha did not even look at the date. Too small for me but I like the looks!

I just finished reading a dozen threads on the focusrs.org site the other night about this, and how it isn't happening. At a certain point they need to put AWD or something in these cars or they won't be able to hook up without drag slicks.

Yeah I saw that. Not sure how I feel about them doing that with a 1.5L though. Seems like there will be no room for more gains. But I guess if you're staying stock it's a very nice choice.
