FocusRS in Dearborn, Mi.

Walking in to work today I got to talk to the exec driving the RS. He says it's coming and then he started it up and let me dream.

In this month's SVT Enthusiast magazine there is a article by Jost Capito-Direstor of Global Performance Vehicles for Ford and he's says "Speaking of the Focus RS. I'll just get this out of the way now: The Focus RS will not be coming to the US. The European Focus was not homologated for this market, and it would be too costly to do so for such a niche vehicle."
Make's you wonder how smaller companies like Mitsubishi and Subaru can afford to build their "niche vehicles". He does leave himself an out though....in the next sentence he says-"However, we know that there is a very strong following of SVT focus owners, and an even larger audience that would like to see a small performance Ford in the line-up once again."
