reading an article in car buzz, Ford plans on developing a Focus RS and will bring it to the US. They are reporting it will be 350 hp. Since they can only get a max 300 out of the 2.0 ecoboost, they mentioned a 2.3 ecoboost Ford is/or plans on developing. I can't image driving this thing with 350 hp.

As disappointed as I'd be not having the top model, this would be pretty cool. I'd imagine the development of a new engine would be pricey, no?

Engine is already developed. Same one that will go into mustang. Progress is farther than you'd think, production is still roughly 3 years out as shomare speculated.

Take it with a grain of salt. I'm not with the turbo wall bang bang society. ;)

Have heard the same. Engine is well along. Other tidbits, FWD with the Revo Knuckle and the electronic traction control.

If it actually comes here in 3 or 4 years I may have to grab one. Depends on my situation at the time. I'm also wondering if they would be built in limited quantities like usual.

If they do come out with this one and I decide that I want one I won't be pre-ordering it and I didn't have any problems with my pre-order. I will probably wait for the second model year so they can work out all the bugs too.

With 350hp, imagine how big the hood gap will be! :D
