Man, Ford seems obsessed with giving me the opportunity to buy awesome cars I desperately want, and can almost, but not quite, afford...

Oh shit… I like the new one better, anyway.

But still - the new one is fucking awesome. I hear it's going to be pretty limited, so probably bloody expensive too. But if they can somehow keep it in WRX STi range, it'll be a winner.

315hp, AWD...they desperately need to make WRC a homologation class again, now that production hot hatches have these specs anyway.

This thing looks awesome, and I have to say... it's about g-d time! Especially with the Evo departing, it's coming in at a good time. Will keep Subaru from resting on its laurels. I bet it's going to be expensive, though, if for no other reason of dealer markup. Like, MSRP of 33-35, but selling for 40k. At least initially.

Ford gets an A+ from me for this, new Stang, and GT.

damn, I might have been living under a rock, because this is the first I've seen of this.
315hp, AWD, you say? yum.

What's next, a redesigned Taurus SHO that can compete with the Hellcat?

They just announced it last week and I don't think it's been at any shows yet, so it's still pretty recent news.

Considering you can load up an ST and keep it under $30k, and the Ecoboost Premium Mustang also starts there (the regular Ecoboost is $25,300), I'd hope that the starting MSRP on the RS would stay right at $30K. Especially considering that Ford is looking to put the AWD system in other cars to spread out the cost.
