Is Ford planning a rival to the VW Scirocco? According to one report, the answer is yes.
Rumored for some time now, Ford is believed to be preparing to debut a compact sports coupe concept at the Frankfurt auto Show. The car is likely to be based on the same platform as the new Ford Focus, though those details have yet to be confirmed. Power could come from a 160-hp 2.0-liter 4-cylinder with direct-injection. A higher-performance model could also be offered using the same 247-hp EcoBoost 4-cylinder that will be offered in the Focus ST hot hatch.
In addition to foreshadowing a new sports coupe, the vehicle is also expected to be a design study, previewing the future design direction of the brand as a whole.
