A return for Ford’s hero Focus RS hatch is again in doubt, with a new report this week claiming the company has yet to give the go-ahead for a new special.

According to the UK’s Autocar magazine, Ford Europe boss Stephen Odell said this week that while the RS has been an important line for the brand, there is “nothing to talk about” on the topic of a return.

“It’s great that we have a proud past with RS, and it’s clear it has acted as a halo product and a way of linking to our racing programmes, but for now there is nothing to say,” Odell told the magazine.

Earlier reports had pointed to a 2015 launch for the new Focus RS, based on the current third-generation hatch that launched in 2011.

Reports elsewhere suggest that Ford is hesitant to commit funds to the Focus RS project at this point, focusing instead on the global launch of its new Mustang coupe.

Test cars believed to be the new RS have been spied testing over the past year, while a bright green hatch with a distinct styling and aero kit surfaced online in grainy photos last month.

The RS badge last appeared with the previous Focus range, including a limited Australian launch.
