I amazed by the huge sales numbers on the 2008 Focus.
I find it rather funny-looking, but it's the best selling Focus ever.

Here's the 2009 Focus coupe: (the sedan is remaining unchanged for now)

Good, they made it more boring. <sarcasm> I sure am glad they didn't use that really cool, sport, stylish European version that sold really well. </sarcasm>

Here it is in all it's.....glory....

Oh, and just so you can see the comparison, here is the European Focus.

Oh, and I actually might have thought about buying one of these...

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"

Why such a big deal? This coupe is just like the 4 door. I think they should have brought over the Euro version, or at least styled a coupe like the Euro version. Whatever.

Bob Lutz: "There's no doubt that a design-driven philosophy is the only one that will work. People who are not sensitive to design, people who don't care about vehicles, people who view a vehicle as an appliance, they just default to Toyota. We will never win that one."

The European models look much better. It makes you wonder what
Ford execs are thinking...or if they were.
