Ford has announced plans to launch more than 12 new performance vehicles.

The company was coy on specifics but confirmed one of the all-new models will be a Focus RS.  It is being billed as a "no-compromise driver’s car that can deliver exceptional performance on the track when required while providing excellent every day driving." The automaker also said the model will be available to customers in "major markets around the world for the first time."

Besides announcing the Focus RS, Ford confirmed they are rolling their various performance divisions - such as Ford Racing, Ford SVT and Team RS - into a new organization simply known as Ford Performance. As Ford Group Vice President of Global Product Development, Raj Nair, explained "Our new global Ford Performance team ties together racing, performance vehicles and parts. It will allow us to more quickly introduce products and accessories that meet the needs of customers around the world on-road and on the track.”
