To all the lucky people with the money to pick up the new rs, please treat it well, as I'm sure I will be buying it used!

Will most likely be purchasing an RS when it comes out. Spoke to many dealers in my area today to try to get on some sort of list. One even said we could order one next week. I am assuming this is just a gimmick to get me in the doors of the dealer..

Has anyone else received any jive like this or is it just me? Way too early to be placing an order.

They haven't even announced the number to be imported which I think will be limited.

500 dwn, lol. Good luck on a 40k+ car with that. 40k is tax, fees, title-reg OTD. That's not including dealer mark up. You'll be looking at a 50k RS. And trust me, all dealers will be marking them up 5-10k minimum. It's called availability and demand, and demand will be high.

Dealers can't place an order or take a deposit on a vehicle not even in the system yet. Yes I'm a mgr at Ford. I hope for those that did get told about a deposit, that they get their money back. No dealer/employee/principle can take a customers money for a deposit on a product that's unavailable. It's against FMC rules.

And clearly no dealership has ever broken a rule.

Sparky,

In the pricing thread you stated they need an automanual to even sell...now in this thread you state the demand will be high.

The troll is strong in this one.

Manager at Ford... More like a porter at a Ford dealer at best.

Actually the correct term is Supply and Demand Economics 101.

No doubt they'll be high demand. Ford has also stated they can produce as many as they need to meet that demand. If dealers are trying to sell for $50k they'll be sitting for a long time. They only number they've given was they'd make less than the first production year of the ST, which was like 13,500 cars.
