First ones hit the US shores about a week ago. They won't be in customers hands for another month I'd guess.

It's only going to be a matter of time until someone gets some work down on the fenders/bumpers and widens the car

I think they could do better than just a bolt on looking rendering like this:
Rendering: 2016 Ford Focus RS Wide Body - Motorward

Marry it to the front bumper better and not go nearly as wide.

Was talking to my dealership last Thur. they said there were two that showed here in the US 1 was in Texas and 1 in New York I'm hoping we will start seeing our's by the 2nd week of June, the parts for mine were shipped to the plant on 4/14 and it showed that it was built on 4/25 and in transit on 4/28. I do have a set of Hoosier A-7's that just showed up today there are a set of OZ Leggeras on their way from the UK ,an RS would sure make the package complete

How many of these threads have we seen over the years:

We might get the RS here!
No, we won't.
Yes, Ford could do it, there is a market for it.
No, it would cannibalize sales from the Mustang.
Not if they priced it exactly like so. Or like this. Or did that.
No, it's too European. They like the hot hatches over there.
I heard some guy say he heard a guy at Ford say they were thinking about it.
Sooo... You're saying there's a chance...

etc. etc.

And now it's on the way and it's all-wheel drive with a six-speed too. And it's world-class. OK, a three-door would have been cool, but still, I'm loving this. I can't wait to see one on the road.

I'm going to start saving my pennies now for my used one so all you guys better take good care of your new one because it might be mine someday.

Whats even funnier is the Mustang is now being exported to Europe and selling. Not so long ago, the Mustang was looked down on compared against European sport cars. They get a good Mustang and we get a great hot hatch, works out

Not the type of car you buy used IMO...unless you find someone that has meticulous service history on the car.

From my time on the RS forums...

- Euro ppl have/are getting their cars
- US ppl are still waiting for their cars to be:
+ Scheduled or Built (some have some haven't)
+ Get on a boat
+ have reached the US, but Ford has placed a hold order on them and they are at the docks.
