Inside info on US/Canada RS

I have a buddy at a ford dealer and he call me today and said that the rumor is that the reason ford discontinued the SVTF is because they are releasing the RS here next year.

Riiiiiiiiight................right,right,right........

Do you have a link/website to any press releases by Ford to substantiate this claim ?

Not trying to bash you, I want the RS here too but I've seen too many of these type of posts with no info to back up the claims.

No disrespect, but take everything you hear from dealership employees with a grain of salt.

This is like the 2nd or 3rd post in like a matter of days concerning this. I'm still waiting for some actual evidence. If I was Ford the last thing I would be doing is keeping this a secret. I wanna know now so I can start saving my pennies.

he also mentioned that one of the reasons they were doing this was because here in canada, (i don't know about US) only specific SVT dealer can sell SVT models, and the RS will be sold at all dealers.

Mmmmm, interesting. I'll believe it when I see it, but that would certainly be cool. The "regular" dealers getting locked out of the SVT model and not being happy about that is believable. Dealers have certainly been known in the past to bitch about stuff like that...
