A ford tech as in service technician? I don't think somebody at that level with the company would get a real paper from ford saying that before it was already officially announced. I hope you're right because that would be awesome!!
Are you sure it didn't mean the rs would arrive to the Americas (Ford's other name for Mexico)?

no he got the paper because it requires special tools to work on and he needs to have them befor it arrives so he got first notice since he is their top machanic in that shop with 21 years of experience

why make us wait until this weekend, if you had news this great you would of put it online straight away.
And why does europe get all the nice cars?

Every time I look around, its another link to the same RS article Ive read a billion times, and further rubbing in of Ford's lack of devotion to its home country.
Makes me actually believe those rumors of Henry Ford's Nazi sympathies......

I read in the most recent issue of AutoWeek that 2012 is the date we're to get the euro focus along with some of its euro siblings. the artical made no mention if we are to also get a RS so cant confirm that. On a sadder note ...the reason they say for the wait is to americanize it so I hope they dont mess it up.
