probably not coming to the US regardless.

It might have a 2.3L engine pushing well above 300hp through a Revoknucle (read: proper, mechanical LSD) and it might only be a 3 door design.

And its up in the air if it ever comes to America.

Wonder if anyone out there makes a rear roof spoiler like the RS?

Not gonna happen, market is topped off at the ST, were lucky we got that. Maybe an RS elsewhere, but not in the states.

It'd be great if FRPP's offers a Torsen for the ST.

It most definitely wont make its way over here. Just like the RS will never be AWD.

Then again how many people here would want to spend 40-50k on a focus in the states. Not enough people in america know what a RS is. All they know is a focus is a good economy car.
I'd be in line for it. Thats if i could afford it.

Won't happen in the U.S. We only like them there mustangs!

Ford DID state that if the ST sales were of a certain number that it would give them good reason to strongly consider offering the RS here. It's not like it would take extra work to sell it here once it's developed.....due to the globalized platform business model they've adopted.....they could always offer it as a special-order-only type vehicle instead of trying to put a bonch on lots and hope they sell
