Well I am a big fan of turbo so I would pay $25k- $29k for the RS only if they can bring the 0-60 down a second or two. As for a costworth $29k -$35k cuz that thing would tear up pretty much anything in its class. About the 350z yeah I see about a handfull of them around, them and them stupid stock subaru's WRX. They dont look great and anyone can buy them and say they are a racer.

I'll keep saying till I die you guys will NEVER get the Euro models in the states for the prices you want, the markets are totally different. Competition means that the US market will simply not pay the price for a Euro RS or ST170. The only way you'll get similar is for them to be built in Mexico or somewhere cheap and have it designed locally based upon the Euro design, very much like the SVT vs ST170 in the end. We will be lucky to see them here in Australia where our prices are higher than yours and where it wouldn't shock so many people. But the Euro RS is no more anyway. Just wait till late this year for the next gen Focus to come out, the MkIII. Should be a cracker with some surprise up it's sleeve!

I don't know if anyone posted this yet and the thread is huge so sorry for repeating what has already been said if so.
The Focus RS is hand built overseas and they are pretty much built to order since they are all sold. In most reviews of the car in European mags they rated the RS in a league above the Civic Type R and even liked it better than the WRX in most cases.
Being in Detroit and going to all the plants there is no way that they could produce that car here at any type of profit. Due to the fact that the ZX3 is made in Mexico the RS would have to be built there and there is no way that the Ford engineers would allow the RS to be built down there due to the quality standards they enforce for the current RS.
Like SydneyZetec said, you will NEVER see the RS here in the states.

There is no scheduled production any more of the SVT, this is due to the new body change and the fact that the Mustang and the F150 have both seen body changes there is nothing on tap for the SVT lines. What is rumored to happen is the SVT line will fade out and will be replaced with "Shelby" versions of such said cars.

Look for it sooner than you think.
