The 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show is still more than a month away but in its lead up Ford has announced today that it will be making no less than four global debuts at the German show, including the reveal of a major new design concept.

So far, all we have is this teaser image which gives away few details except an aggressive looking front-end for the concept.

Additionally, Ford has also revealed that it will make an announcement about its next Focus-based performance car, reigniting rumors that a sporty coupe version of the car could be built. However, it could just be the long-awaited Focus ST, which we’ve already seen in concept form as well as in numerous spy shots.

Finally, one of the global debuts is expected to be the production version of the B-Max concept we saw earlier this year.

“Ford plans to make a strong statement at the Frankfurt Auto Show, with several very exciting global product reveals and our significantly expanded show stand,” said Stephen Odell, chairman and CEO, Ford of Europe. “We’re excited to be showing customers our best-ever vehicle line-up and a special glimpse of the future.”

That expanded show stand Odell is referring to is a massive 34,400 square-feet arena that will not only include stages for the new cars, but also a test track to allow visitors to actually drive some of Ford’s new products.

Press days for the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show kick off on September 13. In the meantime, follow our full coverage of the event by clicking here.

  1. hey! so you couldn't figure out what the design concept was either? Nice call on the Focus coupe, though it's probably just the ST. greeting from ae

    Bad stuff?

  2. was always curious as to why Ford or Holden (GM) didnt bring one of their top spec Falcon's or Commodore's on world tours with them for these shows to drum up interest. I am ever so curious to know if such placements in these shows woudl garner enough interest from these foreign markets to release their products their. I mean they wouldnt even need to do much to them to comply to their local regulations, and then some tooling from right hook to left !

  3. Think Ford should dump and do a quick front-end-look update on the Focus and put the ST version's semi-Aston Martin grille on it instead.

    Falcon and Commodore are old and going out of style and they're not a major player as world-beating global cars for Ford and GM.

  4. I'm an Aussie and just moved to Germany. You hardly ever spot a sedan here - unless it's a taxi. The Commodore and Falcon are simply too big. The U.S. is their best bet

  5. hence the term WORLD TOURS, not just specifically to Europe.
    i hold no affection for them personally, im a porsche man myself, but its strange that they havent been embraced previously, especially as the G8 has gained cult status in the US and Lutz himself drives a Falcon G6E supercharged
