Video: Our Ford Fiesta ST Gets the First COBB Stage 2 Kit, Will Blow…

We love our Fiesta ST. It's light, fun, fast, and super practical. That doesn't mean it couldn't use a few more ponies under the hood. We got a nice little bump in midrange torque from the COBB Stage 1 package a few months back, but now let's see what happens when we go for Stage 2! » 4/07/14 7:07pm 4/07/14 7:07pm

The Smoking Tire Project Fiesta ST Gets COBB Stage 1

After we filmed the somewhat controversial Ford Fiesta ST vs. BMW E46 M3 video a month or so back, we as a group were so smitten with the Fiesta ST's ludicrous value for money proposition that our cameraman and resident mad scientist Thaddeus Brown went straight to the dealership and traded in his 2006 Mini Cooper S… » 1/31/14 12:57pm 1/31/14 12:57pm

Pontiac G8 ST Officially Named... Pontiac G8 ST, Tens Of Chevy Fans…

It's official — despite Jalopnik and over 80,000 arrowhead fan boys best efforts, Pontiac's decided to officially name the Pontiac G8 Sport Truck the unimaginative name of "Pontiac G8 ST."

Wards Ignores Jalopnik At Epicenter Of El Camino Campaign

But when it came time to assign a location from which the hootin', hollerin' and shoutin' was emanating from,… » 3/25/08 10:45am 3/25/08 10:45am

For those who want tiny-Ford power but are too busy to make your own SHOgun or too impatient to wait for the impending Mazda2ish vehicle, you may want to look away. The Ford Fiesta ST, already a capable little vehicle, is getting two dealer-fit performance packages for the UK. The Mountune Performance Stage 1 package… » 1/09/08 9:45am 1/09/08 9:45am

Ford Launches Focus Special Edition ST500 in the UK

Playing the grass-is-greener game whenever Ford Europe puts out a new, high-performance variant of the Euro Focus is getting tedious. Perhaps Brits do the same thing when Ford North America sends out yet another Mustang derivative. Ah, screw it; here goes one more. It's the Ford Focus ST500, a spec'd-up Focus to be… » 11/08/07 8:30am 11/08/07 8:30am

Ford Releases Focus ST Black "Knight Rider" Edition?

We're not quite sure what to make of this. Ford Europe's got a string of press releases announcing what seems to be a Ford Focus ST Black Edition. The only problem is they've dropped the press release out in every language but English, so we're kind of going off of the Babelfish translation of the French version… » 8/27/07 9:00am 8/27/07 9:00am
