Sure, you can buy a 10 year old car and build it up to be faster than the ST and spend less money. Can't the same be said for just about any car? Why buy a new Evo when you can buy an Evo VIII and put $10k into the motor? Who needs a new Corvette when you can buy an early C5 and twin turbocharge it?

Ford has put out a compact performance-oriented car with a polished finish and a price tag that makes it affordable for a lot of people, including first-time new car buyers. Did they ever say it was the fastest car for the money? No. If you want a fast car for about $30k go buy a V6 Genesis coupe.
thats their way of thinking and this is yours, thats why we have choices. so whos wrong and whos right? no one is.
