Cossie Focus rumors will not die

The latest issue of EVO has a small blurb and spy shots of what is supposedly a Cosworth Focus. Actually it's a red Focus RS "mule" said to have AWD running gear.

Of course this is based on the C1 platform which is said to have a wider track along with a longer wheelbase.

They claim 300HP from a "new" 2.0L, 4 cyl. engine (that has 150HP in base trim) which is turbocharged along with the aforementioned AWD.

Also of note, interior trim and switchgear is said to be aiming at "VW" level quality.

Due to bow at the Frankfurt motor show, September 2005.

I take all these reports with a grain of salt, but thought I'd just stir the pot a little.

The C-Max, S40, and Mazda3 bow this fall and winter in europe. with the Mazda3 in N.A. this fall and S40 this winter or early 2004.

the C1 Focus should begin European Roll out late next year, or even early 2005, and finish roll out by summer or fall 2005. The US C1 focus should follow in 2006.

We will know more by Frankfurt.
