Those RS models are always a hoot.
Nathan, Did I post this correctly?
I would love to see a RS here in the States...
We'd have moved it if need be, and I have this nifty tool that sends you a note that we moved a thread and where it has been moved.
I wasn't sure of the formate to post stuff like this on here. I am a auto news mod on one of the other auto forums I'm on.
:cornut: American Car speaking, I've always been a Ford man at heart. The car sounds nice. Now how about a down sized, light weight, Mustang with turbo charged engine and 4 wheel independent suspension(and all of the goodies). Dream...............................................
I was at the dealer looking at a ST the other day.....even those look bad azz! Wouldn't let me drive it though, bummer.
The local Ford dealer wanted a deposit from me to test drive it. But they would let me drive a Mustang GT without one.
Yea it was kinda funny, I was telling him, "dude, its just a Focus", :lol: Funny thing is, I went to Carmax a few months ago and the guy begged me to drive a Z06, as they can't drive them, I obliged him :cornut:
If I had to buy a new car tomorrow, it'd be an ST. With the exception of the touch screen, that car is awesome. Great power, great fuel efficiency, more room than the MINI, and good hatchback styling.
Not sure what I would buy for a new car if I had too. Probably be a 08-11 BMW 135.
I've always had a soft soft in my heart for Ford....
They didn't take/need bailout money, and my dad worked his entire life as a cost analyst for Ford.
When he passed away his entire plant was closed for the day of his funeral and everyone attended. It was very touching.
Back on topic: at one point I had a Focus... not a bad little car. Would own one again perhaps.
My first "fun" vehicle was a 1990 Ford Probe GT. It was fun to drive once the turbo finally spooled up and you got used to the torque steer. I would definitely consider another turbo Ford someday. This one looks like it will be a riot!
I've been a Ford guy most my life as well. Though I'll have to disagree about the Mustang. I like my V8s (preferably 281ci or bigger) and knuckle-dragging live rear axle. Though a watts-link rear would be a welcome change.
Its one of the cars I'm considering to replace the MINI with.
Good to hear that.
I just want a 1.0 liter Ford. 350 HP is to much for me.
I am want this:

Most profitable car makers
No wonder why Ford didn't get aby bailout Money and on top of that they did buy:
Jaguar and them sold to Tata
Volvo and them sold to Chinese manufacturer Geely
Mazda and still own partially
Most profitable car makers. Interesting article.
Mr Money: the most profitable car companies - Telegraph
1) Volkswagem 21bi but it is one impressive group VW, Audi, Skoda, Seat, Lamborghini and Bugatti have led to that healthy annual profit.
2) Ford 20bi but I've been stressing for years that, for a bread and butter car maker, Ford's retail prices are way too high and I've no doubt that it's this premium pricing policy that has enabled Ford to get so surprisingly rich. But I also have to concede that since consumers are seemingly happy to pay these prices, Ford can hardly be blamed for charging them.
Be proud of being American but if you own a German car/cars don't feel bad, don't feel ashamed because FORD is doing good.
Just read some specs on that Formula Ford With its 1liter, 202hp, it put up the eleventh fastest time at the Ring, besting the Enzo, Aventador and the Zonda......thats impressive! Hmm........maybe thats why some of those Minis we see can keep up with some of those big hp cars, driver skill and handling?
