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.

no im with COSitsWORTHit on that one...sounds very accurate considering the the battle between the 4 bangers lately...the SVT focus may be a dam good handler but put up against the srt neon is cannot compare in power...and the EVO/STi are in a completely different game with handling and thinking they'll come out with a turbo model for 2005 with the new stang coming out soon, to keep interest in the younger poorer crowd....then throw out and all out scorcher 2 years later (but by that time they'll be several other 4cyls ready to take it away from ford again) after all the, um, well letz put it like this, "GAY packagaes ford turns out"(thanx for the quote nazthug)....
