The folks at some noob site called Edmunds Inside Line posted spy pics of what they purport to be the '08 Focus. Cue fevered responses from the Focus forums saying "the interior is better but the outside is meh" and "the IP looks Volvo-y." If you can't get the people who are enthusiastic enough to join a forum about their own car excited about the next model, things may be a bit rocky. That said, the nose appears better designed than the current horrifying iteration, and the lights are pretty spiffy. On the downside, audio enthusiasts everywhere will again curse Ford, which, not having learned its lesson from the DN101 Taurus, are putting in a non-DIN radio. I guess that means it will be SO GOOD nobody will ever want to replace it.
