Last month we heard reports that Ford is working on a Focus Coupe, of which a concept version would debut at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show… well it’s a lie. UK publications AutoExpress said its “sources” confirmed to them that Ford is planning a Focus Coupe as a modern interpretation to the Capri.
Writing on the Ford Focus Facebook Fan page, Mark Schirmer, Ford Communications, said:
“Wild speculation about a Focus coupe is making the rounds on websites in Europe, led by the attached link to Auto Express. I can tell you right now — and the coupe lovers hate to hear this — but there are no plans for this model. What do you think: Honestly, is there volume in the coupe market anymore, or is five-door hatchback the way to go?”
So what do you guys think. Should Ford do a Focus Coupe or just stick to a five-door hatchback? Let us know in the comments section.
Refresher: The 2012 Ford Focus is powered by 2.0L DOHC inline 4-clyinder unit with twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT), direct gasoline injection and E85 flex fuel capability.
