Nor do you blame the production scheduler for this difficulty. All dealers were asked (as they always are) to provide a DSRD which predicts stock run down sales projections. Not really anyones fault that T3 has already outsold those predictions (and in fact S1 and S2 combined) or that XR8 has been more popular than at first thought.
Just leaves a nasty gap for awhile.
This is a golden opportunity for Ford to bring out something special in the I6,(limited run turbo?) till Barra has been released.
Ford has the experience from previous proto types. Just keep it simple.
Come on Ford, lets get that competitive edge back. Quality is not an issue, compared to "other"cars, just a bit of extra grunt will do.
