Ford has announced that there are no plans by the company to produce a coupé version of its new Focus.
The announcement comes after recent internet speculation claiming the car would make its debut as a concept at next month's Detroit motor show before going on sale in 2012.
Mike Schirmer, Ford’s communications manager, commented in a post on the new Focus’s Facebook page: “Wild speculation about a Focus coupé is making the rounds on websites in Europe. I can tell you right now - and the coupé lovers hate to hear this - but there are no plans for this model.”
Clarifying his comments with Automobile magazine, Schirmer added: “There are no plans for any coupé or three-door hatch or whatever you want to call it.
