Knew it, Ford rewards it's foreign buyers better than it's buyers at home. That's hella sad...

)))ALL WHEEL DRIVE OR OPTIONS ON DRIVE SYSTEM PLEASE(((make it a proper mini supercar

would be ideal to have something capable of running 3 set ups for drive one being very advanced. front wheel only / rear wheel only & an all wheel w/a bias to set up w/over-steer, under-steer or neutral. there's so much potential w/torque vectoring system when applied to all four wheels.it'd be like owning 3 cars in one untouchable package. give clients an experience unlike anything, well nearly anything else ever has. very advanced drive system that can increase/decrease power to any specific wheel. only thing i've ever seen it on is an electric supercar made by tiny company in croatia called rimac. linking so you guys can read about the drive system the car offers. it's naturally supercar expensive & has torque somewhere around 1180 ft lbs 1100bhp
http://www.rimac-automobili.com/


i really think this sort of out of the box thinking is where a proper ford rs focus should lead the way. you guys have only missed out on last 30 yrs of subaru dominance in all wheel drive. time for ford to get to work.......

Build numbers have been set, for all three global markets. Ford has NEVER made a profit on an RS, Focus or Escort/Sierra.

How do you know? Did you hack their accounting servers? Even if you did there's an awful lot of creative accounting that goes on then claims are made one way or the other to suit the audience.

Unconfirmed but hopeful

Just talked to my bud that work at the Ford dealership here in town and he let slip some drunken news that made me hopeful. He indicated that the RS is indeed coming and it is going to be in Mid 2015 as far as his new brochures say. It will be a 350hp AWD iteration and will MSRP at 35k base, or there abouts. I will try and get that brochure from him to confirm this rumor. I have been pressing this guy for months and he has been tight lipped about it till now.

Just wanted to stir the pot. I will continue to needle this guy.

Motor trend magazine said, the entire RS development has been setback due to the global release of the 2015 mustang. It won't be any time soon that anyone will be seeing a RS regardless.

I honestly think all the spy photos being passed around is nothing more than the new ST in the new body style being tested.
