Quiet agree lifer, here was me looking forward to a name from the past being stuck on the rump of a Ford!, namely Capri!, hands up who wouldn't want the name revived?.

It would be a pity if Ford do not make a Focus coupe, I would have thought that the economies of scale would help it make a profit and would provide Ford with a halo car as they seem to be unwilling to make a real sporty coupe. Wonder if Auto spress forget their scoop.

As the cars grow in size, the sales of 3dr C-Segment is falling since years, I think it is about time to axe such models, including the boom-and-bust CC versions. On the other hand, B-Segment 3dr sales are growing and that's where new niches might open up.
