i dont know if id consider buying an rs out here... i love the car and all but id be in a wrx or evo before mid 20k fwd turbo car. i like awd a whole lot. and i agree with mofo. an awd 2.3l turbo. making about 220-240 hp would treat me nicely.

id pay mid 20s for something in that hp range.... get it close to 300 and awd still id be willing to pay around 30k.

hmmm........21k (This would put the RS and the Cossie in the middle of the market) for RS and 24K for an AWD. Ford needs to go the extra mile and make it a point to offer Domestics cheaper than the Imports (WRX, EVO)........It's an image issue at this point like Audi had a several years ago after the stories spread about their build quality IMHO.

Moving upscale and completly out of the Neon SRT-4 (although I drove one last week VERY hard and liked the factory LSD very much in the 04) range should be Ford's plan of action. Ford needs to stop leaving us out of the fun (See MKI - MKIV Escort Cosworth RS for example) like they have done for so long.................... Bring it.........and we will come

Problem is..........where did the FR200 go along with all those Ford Racing prototype parts? For that matter..............why does Ford seem to tease us only to abandon the effort just as it is about to gain some steam? See the Meguiar's Drag Focus...........this is a GREAT example

$200k for a car that only goes 13.5 in the 1/4 mile? Bish please!!!! I would never spend that much money on a car that slow. Money should equal hp!!!! And for the money that you buy your Foci (base or SVT) for, we definitely got the hp with it, for what it's worth.


Just my .02 cents.

I dont know whats going on with the taxes or extra charges there, but here in Greece, RS has 35.000 and the ST has 24.000. We are waiting the Cossie about 50-60.000.

My g, if the cossie here comes only 26-30k you would be able to see it in every corner....

They should put the old 2.3l turbo motor in the Focus. That would be bad ass. I'd pay 25K for the RS. But only if it came just like the Euro model, with auto leveling HID's, auto climate control ect...

If the RS or Cosworth was going to come across the seas. They would have to forget about the SRT4 the SVT dispatches that car nicely on the curvies. It would have to be a car that would compete with the STI and EVO. As much HP and as good or better Handling. The poeple that would by the RS besides us would be Rally enthusiests. Poeple that would have seen the WRC version. It would have to compete with the Scooby's and Evo. There is no other way around it. Also they would have to market it as competition to the STI and Evo as to not steal any limelight away from the Crapstang.
