Well, they say in the timeline that the Modern Masters are a new class of car. This Focus is a 2010s car so not really a new class. Could it be 2 liter WRC? No, that can't be it. We already have 2 liter WRCs in-game. The new class has to be R5.
I doubt if they ALL have to be a new class of car. I would imagine class also refers to the categories in the game rather than IRL.
Expanding on the 2000 and 2010 categories would seem likely.
Think that's a 2008/09 Focus WRC?

I think they'll be fleshing out the 2000's and the 2010's categories, but i don't know how that picture above fits it, it would be very strange from a gameplay point of view to have the same model (technically) in the same category (2000's)
You and me both, would seem a bit strange. Might explain why the 2001 cars have '2001' in their name though. Perez's Focus is a 2007 model if I remember various entry lists correctly. Makes a lot of sense and presumably will have the works livery with all the BP logos in game.

I feel harsh for saying this, but a little disappointed that one of the other cars for the class will be another Focus as it sort of implies to me that they're having difficulty with a few more manufacturers.

Does make me wonder if we could also be looking at the Subaru equivalent:

Hmm, possibly, however, i'm more inclined to think that's due to their drive specific nature/celebration.

Or it could also be that their relationship with Ford is so good that they might have no trouble at all getting extra cars from them to add to the game.

Yep, and that's great - in fact, I look at Ford a lot more favourably as a result and will go take a look around their showroom next chance I get - but we have a a [very] vague idea of how many cars are in works (~6-8) for upcoming patches, unless that has changed, so everyone here has a few personal favourites they were hoping for (Skoda S2000 in my case) - so when we find out one is another Ford, it lowers the chances that the remaining cars are Mitsubishis, Skodas, Peugeots, Citroens, Renaults, etc.

That's not a slight or an attack on Codemasters - I'm as sick as anyone as reading "No Evo yet, CM hatez uz" threads on Steam - just a personal slight disappointment. Don't fret though, I'm still going to drive that new Focus until I've written it off more times than Latvala!

There we can see some great cars that we have already in game and some that might me added later such as Focus 06,206,Xsara,Celica[*],Lancer Evo IV,Fabia . I want some of them baaadly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WOh9UZfIvmU
 I championed the Quattro Evo 2 right at the start since it's probably the most iconic representation of Group B, was in the original CMR, hasn't been in a Codies came since 2005 and is a better fit to be up against the RS200, 205 Evo 2 and Delta S4.
All but certain its not going to happen though.

I also want that Quattro S1 E2 so BAD in the Group B. That Pug needs to have some serious competition after all, no better car to do it than the almighty Quattro in it's prime :D
Codemasters, please, pwetty pwease. I'll give my kidney or even both of them if it helps :D
