3-4 weeks and counting ;) although rumors are now pointing towards an iPhone of the same form factor as the iPhone 4 (which I hope ISN'T the case!)


haha, i'm actually hoping it IS the same size. I am in the opposite camp to you, I think though reading the rumours I'm going to be happy and you'll be disappointed, but who knows with Apple? I was hoping they launch two phones, a 4S and a 5. Doesn't look like it though :(

But back to the ST, and talking about phones, what tech will we have as an option for next years models? Will they offer the full Ford Sync system? Like in the Focus? And a colour screen?

Should also add that I guess as the Fiesta is a concept, then if the front end isn't well received then Ford can alway's change it before next year? But the front does match the spy shots seen of the test car.

Let's just hope an important Ford designer stumbles across our board!
I'd seriously consider this car, but if they released it like this, as earlier, I'd have to revert the front end back to a Zetec S look if possible.

I'll reserve judgment because I actually hated the new Fiesta styling, until I saw it in the flesh!! So maybe I will like this more in the flesh too.
Also of note is the engine, it's almost like the Zetec S petrol with a Turbo bolted on. It will have the twin cam TI-VCT technology as well as all the rest. And 40MPG plus is nice too.

I'd be interested to know where ford gained the 60ps, most of course will be from the turbo but just how much? If all 60ps comes from the turbo that's an increase of 50% power, I'm no expert on turbos but that seems alot.

As it's the same engine (more or less) underneathe, do mountune even need to make new kits? the 140ps and 155ps packs should be a direct replacement? If so, that'd be 200ps (140ps pack) and 215ps (155ps pack). Those would be pretty hot figures to be readily available at car launch!

40MPG should also be achievable too on the long runs, when turbo's aren't on boost they use very little energy, and you should see similar MPG as the N/A 1.6. It's gunna plummit when you thrash it though, I get my ZS down to mid 20's occassionally!

Just also noticed, the headlamps are a different shape, as well as the insides being different.
This is gunna mean it'll be hard to swap out that grille, bumper and bonnet, unless Ford bring in the same shape headlamps on the facelift, with a current style front bumper/grille set up.

Turbos should be good for economy they work by forcing air into the engine creating a better air to fuel mixture and thus making the fuel burn more efficiently this is why they have Turbo Diesels as it is for the economy.

Perhaps they will alter the front end down for production but overall I would say I'm very interested in this car. No dought that it will be great to drive. Really hope they go for the painted brake calipers. I'm also hoping that it will come with features such as a Xenon option, the torque vectoring system from the Focus and full sync with colour screen.

A current Fiesta from Frankfurt. For some reason Autocar put it on the ST storey?
Anyway, looking at this, then looking at the ST, the ST looks better i think?

The whole idea of an Ecoboost engine is not only are they turbo charged they are much lighter than a normal petrol and smaller in size too. Resulting in a more powerful and lighter car
