Is there any way the rumored 2014 1/2 will be the redesign?

Why wouldn't they simply be 2015 models? Why do people still add the 1/2 model year, full knowing that every Mustang comes out early in the production year?

I had the SE hatch with FRRP suspension, intake mods and a short shifter. The car was very fun to drive with just 112 HP....

I'm very interested in a 2015 50th anniversary GT. The bugs are already out of the 5.0, probably the same transmission set up too, but it remains to be seen if they will improve the 6MT.

Since there isn't a US production ST Fiesta, maybe you mean the Focus ST?

As it stands right now for me, I will wait for the return of the Boss
Maybe the return of boss 429? That would be history!

I was told the 14’s will start being delivered in January not March , he already has two 14 GT’s on order and slated for January delivery not March and this is why he thinks it will be a short production run of 14's to make room for the
14 … Could he be full of BS, maybe… The only reason I would think so...
I have not seen anything as far as production dates and/or model options for a 14 … We will just have to wait and see if there is a mid-year production like the 64 that sold 22000 cars its first day of release to public sale…

I don't speak often but when I do, I don't have clue what I am talking about. I just repeat things that I once heard and do not repeat them correctly... My doctor told me it was an ID 10 T problem and it was incurable.
So when I reply to a post or add to a thread I just find the words elsewhere and copy and paste.

Ah yes, I get those mixed up. They look so similar and even their names look similar. Still, very neat cars.

Picked up 23/45 with just a tune. That is pretty impressive. Heat seems to be the major issue with these since the turbo is being worked pretty good at 16psi I believe. I wonder what tuners like KenB and other will get out of it.

Apparently the Cosworth Focus ST at SEMA made 330/323 with Tune, Intake, Exhaust and upgraded IC to cool it down

Don't get your panties in a bunch Grim This is the only reason I'm humoring the 2014 1/2 idea:

My plan has always been to get the model before the redesign. If there will be a 2014 1/2, and it isn't the redesign, I may be interested in it as opposed to the 2014.

From what I read the other day I think on Autoblog, the Fiesta ST with 180 hp is coming to America now. Would make a great daily driver.

In a car that light, 180hp should be pretty fun.

I have been saying all along I think 2014 will be a super short run. However I never considered Ford introducing the new version as a 2014. That would be ultra cool of Ford and honor the history of the car much more than making it a 2015.

I have a feeling by the time we know for sure what the new version looks like it will be too late to special order a 2014. Knowing the changeover is coming it's doubtful the dealers are going to load up on alot of 2014 stock either.

Playing both sides of the fence is probably going to be tough if you want anything really specific.

If you love your dog, get a microchip, they really work! My lost dog was back home in just under 24 hours thanks to the good citizens who called the county and the microchip that told animal control exactly where he lived.

Well, you have plenty of time to decide, Sabin.

Well when I actually see one or better yet drive one perhaps, but until then am good with my GT unless I find a great deal on a loaded 2013 boss.
