According to AutoCar, Ford has said that its high-performance Fiesta, known as the Fiesta ST, has been delayed and may never even make it to production. The 200-hp Ford Fiesta ST was expected to join the Fiesta hatchback lineup later this year but ford has put a hold on the project due to it current financial situation.

“Now is not the right time for a Fiesta ST,” a source told Autocar. “We may have a better opportunity to make the ST later on in the car”s life, when Ford”s direct-injection petrol engines are ready and the range would benefit more from the extra interest surrounding such a car.”

The source said that the a Fiesta ST may not happen until 2012.

Why not just through the 180-hp 1.6L 4-cylinder EcoBoost being shown in the Iosis Max Concept in Geneva?

    this car has all the ingredients to be the Fabia in the Ford lineup. You got the 1.2-liter petrol, the 1.9-diesel, both catering to the family hatch buyers, and then you got the mad Sportline version, and then the vRS, which is a rally car in retrospect. Ford should take a leaf out of Skoda's book.
