  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: First Look: Ford Focus RS to Compete in 2016 Global RallyCross Season

Recommended Posts

2017 Ford Focus RS Global RallyCross

We hold our imaginations in high regard, but even we didn’t think it was possible for Ford’s Focus RS to become appreciably cooler than it already is. Ford Performance, working in conjunction with Ken Block’s Hoonigan Racing and U.K.-based speed shop M-Sport, has just put that to rest with the Focus RS–based Global Rallycross race car. After making a brief cameo in Block’s latest Gymkhana video yesterday, we now have official info on and photos of the RS racer. Two of these monsters will compete in the 2016 FIA Global Rallycross season, and they look incredible.

2017 Ford Focus RS Global RallyCross

The Focus RS rally cars will also go like the devil, what with all-wheel drive and 600-hp “EcoBoost” engines. With nearly double the horsepower of a stock Focus RS, we’d categorize the race car’s turbocharged engine as being more “Boost” than “Eco,” but either way—600 horsepower! Details on the rest of the car are upcoming, but we do know the fetching Focus will claw its way to 60 mph in less than two seconds. And with Ken Block and teammate Andreas Bakkerud at the wheel, neither car probably has or needs the production Focus RS’s “drift mode.” The massive horsepower and pro drivers will handle drift duty, thank you.

Expect photos of the completed cars to be released later, but for now, chew on these Ford Performance renderings. We have only one question: How do we source this bodywork—the bulging, vented fenders, hood vents, rear diffuser, and the two wings rigged to the hatch—to put on a regular Focus RS?
