You think these could be RS prototype fenders?

^ I got excited about that rendering, but then I realized that if Ford ever did make an RS of the MK3, we prob wouldnt get it in the US, so....

Well, Fifteen52 works close with Ken Block who works close with Ford, so it wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility....

We'll probably get it: if Europe gets a Mustang, then we just might.

We should make a thread for this article, and open it up to separate discussion. Lots of good info in there, but of course no confirmation (or denial...) of the US getting the RS.

To all those AWD RS hopefuls out there, not looking good:
Quote:
Initial discussions to use electric motors on the rear wheels to boost performance and cut emissions were reportedly deemed too expensive to develop and a negative distraction for buyers.

Engineers are said to have appraised using the Kugaís four-wheel drive system, which uses the same platform, but itís reportedly too heavy and tricky to package in a low-slung, sports-orientated car.
