Citing a lack of consumer demand, Ford has quashed rumors about a Focus coupe.
It might be the season of giving, but Ford has quashed rumors about a Focus coupe.
In a post on the Focus' Facebook page, Mark Schirmer - Ford's Communications Manager - commented "Wild speculation about a Focus coupe is making the rounds on websites in Europe. I can tell you right now -- and the coupe lovers hate to hear this -- but there are no plans for this model."
To ensure Ford wasn't playing a sleight of hand, Automobile called Schirmer to confirm his statements also included a three-door hatch. His answer: "There are no plans for any coupe or three-door hatch or whatever you want to call it." Furthermore, Schirmer indicated Ford axed the three-door hatch over lack of consumer demand.
