The RS is a sweet car but I'm glad my STI is only a few more payments from being all mine and I only paid $32k for it used with 3800 miles on it and it came with the accessport.

Apart from rumors I've not seen any valid evidence that there will be any change to the last run of the MK3 Focus RS for 2017 based on the released order guides being shown.

Not to say that it could not happen, but it seems highly unlikely.

I've never even heard of the rs500. I had to Google it...lol. Seems like it will not come to the US. So far it's in Europe only and it will only be in small quantities.

More speculation without substance. There is no RS500 in Europe for this generation of RS so far. There is also only likely to be 1 more model year worth of production before the new car is due. You'd think that we'd have more concrete evidence by now if such a vehicle existed other than one car on the Nurburgring that could just be an old development mule or someone's idea of a sick joke. Lol.

It is NOT speculation as ford dealers here are taking orders for the rs500 now and is due here pretty soon, as always with these rs500s it will be limited numbers, my cousin was invited along to the local ford dealership along with me where he was given the chance to purchase one as he also owns the mk2 rs500 and the 3dr cosworth rs500 plus ltd edition st500 mk2 focus models and as a valued customer he was given the option of buying the new rs500, which he paid the required $10,000 deposit a few weeks back

maybe in the states this is true which is why I asked if you guys will get it, but here in the uk 1st ones for customers are expected late 2016 early 2017

just because you dont actually know about the rs500 does not mean its not going to happen, as it is happening now =FACT and Im in london-England and saw the saleman's take my cousins order as I did the deal for him as he bought a roush imported mustang at same time

It is 100% speculation if it has not been revealed by Ford Motor Company in public.

Just because some dealerships are preying on people and pumping up artificial demand does not mean that the car exists.

Could they in fact end up making a car wrapped in black vinyl with the Mountune MP375 kit installed from the factory ala the MK2 RS500?

Sure, however there is no evidence to support that this is even happening outside of speculation around one car that someone put hood vents and hacked the wing up in Saarlouis and took to the 'Ring.

If it happens cool, but don't be surprised that it does not happen.

Saying that yes it is happening like it's a fact even for Europe when it was not actually shown at any auto show or press release is taking what the salesman said on faith and their only job is to sell cars, not always tell the truth.

If there was an order guide or press release otherwise leaked onto the internet that might give more credence to the rumor, but without an official statement from Ford Motor Company it is only just a rumor prior to vehicles being revealed or delivered.

Dealers speculating on future products may not be entirely illegal but it sure seems immoral to get people's hopes and dreams up on a car that they may or may not be able to buy.

Hopefully you're right in that there will be a car at the end of that wait, but there is not sufficient evidence to say that yes there will be a more hardcore version of the most hard core Focus to date.
