When will Ford . . .

When will Ford finally realize they need to bring the Falcon and the AWD, turbo Focus to the states?

I mean, come on. They are dead set on this whole bold moves thing, why don't they actually do something bolder than throw a supercharger on a stang and add Shelby's name to it?

Oh and since they are celebrating the 100th birthday of the Model T in a little over a year, I want to see them do a retro Model T!!!!

Re: When will Ford . . .

That may happen in the future but my guess is that Ford Aus will work on a rear wheel drive platform that can be used in Aus and USA and other parts of the world.

Re: When will Ford . . .

The next generation of Falcon, code named Orion, is being designed for RHD & LHD and to comply with global crash & emission standards. This hasn't been the case previously.
The major stumbling block with US export has always been US Labour Unions.
