If ford wants this care to compete it cannot sticker over 25k. I would take a WRX for 25k over the ST any day and I was a pretty die hard focus fan.

I ended up with a brand new '12 Mustang GT for 24,600 after all rebates and discounts. I love hot hatches but I could not argue with 412 hp for 24,600!
If you can get a '12 GT for cheaper than a Focus, I'd do that in a second. I'm a performance fan and 412HP trumps anything in that price range. Nice move!
