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.

Leaves the door wide open for the Astra GTC

Disappointing. It works for VW (Sirocco) and Volvo (C30), so why not? A 3 door hatch/coupe would sell pretty well in Europe I'm sure, if not the US.

Awwww, and Auto Expend told us it was the new Capri.

Where has all Japanese design went to?

[quote splashtech]It works for VW (Sirocco) and Volvo (C30), so why not?[/quote] 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.

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.

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?.

Peter Cavellini.
