The difference is those who want the Mustang will buy the Mustang. Those who want a hot hatch will not buy the Mustang, and those who buy the Mustang wouldn't buy the hot hatch Focus RS.

The ST is already more fun to drive even if its less powerful than at least a '13 5.0 L GT automatic. The seating position is better, the car is more practical, and you can actually see out of it, where as you sit quite low with a very high Cowl in the Mustang.

I really wanted a Mustang while growing up, but now I'm not as sure.
