The RS is more or less designed for those that already have a daily driver. The RS is meant for the weekend warrior with disposable income for the most part. The part that shocked me is that they said the Mustang was going to be on sale in Europe. I have been to Europe several times and I have only seen 3 Mustangs there the entire time. Good to see our European counterparts getting the Mustang, which in turn I would hope that we get a chance to own the goodies they get there.

Maybe.. depends on the cost and what the power output will be... I am a fan of the revo knuckle and lsd combo.. i would love a AWD but i doubt well get.. then again for 35-40k i hope FORD does it awd...

I would like to see a fiesta RS.. im going to see the fiesta ST at the autoshow on friday so hopefully i hear something new about the focus rs speculation.

They wouldn't make it AWD ever, that would defeat the purpose of the RS. The RS was to be the most bonkers FWD car ever pretty much. The old RS was FWD with as much if not more power than the current V6 Mustang going solely through the front wheels.

If they build it, I will buy it. At least it's being talked about instead of straight up dead.

The ST is almost 30,000! there is no way these are less then $35000. For that reason i will not be getting one. They will probably be awesome but they will just be way to much!!!

It wouldn't be re-engineered for the Focus (the 2.3L is based on the 2.0 L Duratec), as it would likely go in the Lincoln MK-C first before it ever goes in a Mustang. At least that's what I had heard before now.

The new Focus RSís case is also strengthened considerably because itís expected to use a new, Ford-developed 2.3-litre turbocharged four-cylinder tuned to around 330bhp. The engine, which will also feature in the Mustang, will comfortably exceed the output of the last Focus RSís Volvo-derived 2.5-litre five-pot that generated 301bhp, or 345bhp in the RS500. It will make use of latest turbo and direct-injection technology to greatly increase fuel efficiency
mmmm
