The answer is "DUH!" and the question is...

Would You Buy a 305-Horsepower Ford Focus RS?

http://blogs.edmunds.com/straightlin...-focus-rs.html

"Ford is apparently considering the idea of bringing its Focus RS superhatch to the U.S., but isn't sure enthusiasts on this side of the Atlantic would like it."

They're kidding, right?

Anyway, I guess we should be really, really encouraged by this...

An ST would kill hondas....you don't need an RS for that. With an RS you'll be killing a lot of other cars, specifically on the track. Would I buy one, idk to me the new RS looks too boy racer and it would be hard for me to go that route, especially since cops will be looking at you as soon as you leave the lot. I don't think it would cost 30k, it might possibly get up there with options, but I doubt it. I'm thinking a starting price of around 25k and top out at 27k or 28k.

I don't qualify as "youth" anymore, but I want one, too.

Indeed. But Ford and GM have been pulling the wool over our eyes for decades (vs. what they offered in Europe).
