In 1999 Dodge announced the Charger concept. They've been using design cues from that car for over a decade. Funny enough, the original 'new' Charger didn't use ANY designs from the concept.

Chrysler Corp. is the WORST at utilizing their concepts. Get real.

Ford is WAY ahead of the game.
Ford has been good at turning the Verterk, Evos, etc into real cars. However, they have sucked at giving Lincoln product that doesn't look like whales. Remember the Lincoln Continental and Mark X concepts. Those were awesome. Instead we have the MKT.

I agree that a 2.5l would be right for the RS, but (if they actually build it) I would buy it with the 2.3. Ford really needs to commit or stop waving possibilities in our face if they do or don't want some of the STI/EVO market.
Thats what I think too as far as Ford coming out w/ the rs. Either do it or have the SVT & FRPP guys have fun.

Getting back on topic...

I'll be driving straight from the dealership to get my windows tinted.

After that, I'll wait to see what tuning options are available and go from there. Coming from Dodge, I don't know what I'm in for as far as warranties and tuning goes.

Does anyone know the offset and lug pattern for these cars yet? I'm going to need snow tires and wheels.
