2013 Ford Focus ST Long Term Road Test


In all honesty, I don't understand the whole Black Friday mess. People standing in line for a so-called deal on something they probably don't need or getting trampled by the unwashed masses just does not compute. But you know what does work for me?


Kurt and I are taking the Focus ST and Scion FR-S to an autocross practice on Black Friday. Initially, Niebuhr thought the Focus would have the edge, since it has quite a bit more power. I disagree. I think the FR-S will paste the Focus because it' sending the power to the rear wheels and power isn't a primary concern when autocrossing.

What do you think? Which car will turn in the fastest time?
