    Looks like with the 2015 model year, Ford may be bringing to market a new RS version of the ST with even more performance goodies. The price point seems significant though, hopefully when they come out that price will drop so that those of us who want to make the jump up to the RS do not need to use a spare kidney as a down payment.

    That's a 3 month old article without any sources

    Ford insider isn't a real source, that'd be a rumor

    If Ford is putting an RS badge on a car, it's going to be the Focus. And it will probably be a 2016MY.

    If it's awd expect a $$$$ premium. It won't be.

    Fiesta st is already $25k so a RS fiesta would be at least $30k+ with AWD. I seriously doubt ford would take that gamble especially in the states

    lol, article says a price of $37,750. We got people on here that complain about the optioned up price of a Fiesta ST. It will take only the most dedicated of Fiesta owners to buy a Fiesta for that much. Yeah, I really don't think we will see the RS over here.

    Certainly has an attractive look to it, hopefully some of those parts become available, especially the mechanical LSD.

    I am 99.99999% sure there isn't a Fiesta RS coming. Auto Express is the automotive equivalent of a tabloid. They seem to be very far off base on their stories.

    It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what is coming next. Focus has a higher sell price, is in desperate need of being moved away from the Fiesta ST, the platform fits the 2.3L EB (see the Lincoln MKC SUV), platform supports AWD (however, many will say that it is too heavy and can't support huge power levels), and Ford takes the Focus RS MkII all over the place to show it off.

    Ugh, they really need to restyle those rear "penis" tail lights. IMO the worst looking part of the Focus.

    Not exactly the way I'd describe the tail lights...but yes, I agree that's the worst part of the Focus hatch. The 2015 restyle doesn't really change much in the rear end either...

    I saw someone call them penis lights and now that's all I see when I look at them. Sorry in advance if this happens to anyone else :)
