I don't think Focus owners would be even thinking of a Taurus since they aren't even close to being the same class of car. I'd be thinking Mustang GT or STI or at $40k I'd be thinking a Nismo edition 370Z. If you wait for an RS you'll be waiting maybe forever and missing out on cars that we actually do have here. Life is too short to wait for a "maybe".
