It sounds like the new Ford Focus lineup is poised to get a little sexier. AutoExpress is reporting that the Blue Oval intends to release a concept coupe version of the newly reworked hatch. Designed to replace the old three-door model elsewhere on the globe, the low-slung ride will take cues from both the Focus ST and ever lust worthy old-school European Capri. The new design is supposedly set to take the stage at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show, meaning that if it makes its way to production, there's a good chance that American buyers will be able to pick one up.

Details are scarce at the moment, but one unnamed insider says that the design is both lower and wider than the Focus that we've seen so far. Otherwise, AutoExpress is speculating that the vehicle will use FoMoCo's powerful 2.0-liter Ecoboost four-cylinder engine with 247 horsepower. If that's true, the car should see 0-60 mph runs in the six-second range. Sounds good to us.

With the 2011 Detroit Auto Show right around the corner, we'll find out soon exactly what Ford has planned for compact fighter.
