    Once Ford stops selling new Fist in the states the amount of hardware available for modding will shrink pretty fast. Its about making money from people who want to mod their NEW car.

    Normally I’d agree, but there are still vendors selling performance parts for MKI Focus. I’d guess that some will fold their tent and move on, but I doubt we’ll lose all our support Jan 1st 2019.

    Edit: most people do the hardcore mods AFTER the new vehicle warranty is kaput. If I go that route, it’ll be post coverage.

    ^^^^ Agreed.

    Mostly it depends how many cars are still on the road and what percentage of their drivers that are likely willing and able to do the mods.

    This is true the aftermarket community for the Nissan 240sx was ok in the 90's while and right after Nissan was manufacturing the car but the aftermarket did not really take off big time till around 2000. That was a a full 7 years after U.S. Sales stopped. For the next 7 years the aftermarket for the car grew immensly . We could see the same thing with the FiST. Of course that will come with a marked drastic depreciation drop in the value of our cars thereby making them affordable for budget minded tuners.

    Truthfully our cars are already depreciating drastically. If you buy one new its best to either lease if you don't think you will want it in a few years or buy it knowing you want to keep this fun little monster and do not plan on getting rid of it for a long time.

    I’d say that within 2 years after production ceases for us, someone will release tuning support and forced induction kits for the non turbo Fiesta. That would kickstart a load of aftermarket support for the platform. Because, the regular Fiesta is just now hitting the mid 4 digit price range used, so we may see a solid aftermarket for quite some time.

    This is pretty much on point. As its been seen with other cult performance cars.

    Sadly, it will also come to the point where those of us who bought new will be spending more on the mods we want to install than these cars will be worth as well.
