The ST is already more fun to drive even if its less powerful than at least a '13 5.0 L GT automatic. The seating position is better, the car is more practical, and you can actually see out of it, where as you sit quite low with a very high Cowl in the Mustang.
I really wanted a Mustang while growing up, but now I'm not as sure.

|timmay9162||I don't think the RS will come here and if it does it is going to be a 40k car. You could get a mustang well equipped for that price.|

|RonMaiden||I'd consider an ST if I already didn't have a big boy toy. I love the look but would redo the rear exhaust with twin traditional round tips.|

I love how many people chip in to this thread offering the same opinion as everyone else. I do really like the ST, and since I'm graduating and hopefully getting a big boy job in the engineering field it's at the top of my list if I decide to buy a new car.
I wouldn't mind a Steeda or Roush version of the ST.

|RonMaiden||I don't think Focus owners would be even thinking of a Taurus since they aren't even close to being the same class of car. I'd be thinking Mustang GT or STI or at $40k I'd be thinking a Nismo edition 370Z. If you wait for an RS you'll be waiting maybe forever and missing out on cars that we actually do have here. Life is too short to wait for a "maybe".|

|Nik00117||Price of an RS would be approaching 40k let me ask you this if you could spent 40k would you want a Ford Taurus SHO AWD or a Focus? Yea because 40k is Taurus SHO range. This is why the car will never come to America, it would sell to those few die hards (and trust me there are very few of those) and then it wouldn't sell anymore. The ST was a nice balance.|

World car or not I highly doubt it will come to the US. Don't see people spending close $40 k or more on a Focus even if its an RS. Not enough people to make it worthwhile for Ford. If by chance Ford actually does come through I would think it would be a couple years after the ST.
Fiesta RS? If that happened here then you could more than likely forget there being a Focus RS here. That and it would probably hurt ST sales for sure.

muhahahah......... ya that's the longest ever waiting car to be sold, and they didn't figure out to lower price by half, yet.
@ RS ... well..... when it comes to SVT vs new ST, I prefer to invest in my SVT, but if RS would eventually come out.... hmmmmm.
RS would be my grocery getter, commuter, and hauler of my SVT that could be finally stripped and 100% set up for autox :D
