they wont fly off the lot but they will sale. people are buying the focus st for almost 30k and im sure the has been a few sold with crazy mark ups above 30k. so why not spend the extra 5k for more power, better options, better handling, and overall a better performing car?
no they wouldnt fly off the shelf but they would sell, ford didnt bring the st state side to get massive sales on it. they brought it state side because enough people were asking for it. they are trying to even the playing feild between the states and outher countries as far as who get what performance model. they might now walk away with a huge amount of money real quick off the rs but they would still profit. gotta remember they are trying to make money and if they see it as a way to get them some money rolling in they will even if it takes a few years to sell them all.
