Got to love how they planned it out. While it sucks for those that want to get one going forward, it will benefit current owners and those that wish to get one second hand. Value of these will hold well throughout a reasonable timeframe..
But one thing to look forward to is what the next RS is going to be like. They did great improvements to the new Raptor compared to the last one
Maybe it'll go out of production at the end of 2017? Sucks that there's going to be such limited amount of Focus RS being produced. The original RS is going to hold onto its value very well especially with the driving it's meant for. A few Focus RS' are going to be scrapped on track and that's going to reduce the amount that's still running in the world.
A lot of fans are going to be disappointed and Ford will need to deliver an even better Focus now that the bar has been set so high.
This is very contradictory with what many Ford executives have said to the press only a few weeks ago. I remember watching one interview where they specifically asked about production numbers and the Ford Executive replied that it was not going to be a limited production car with production runs similar to the FoST.
So what this means for us in US is that we either get one of the first FoRSs with an insane mark-up or nothing at all?
I'm not sure.
Ford seems to have ramped up production of the FoRS recently, but I don't know whether production will catch up to demand enough so that there will be sufficient supply to discourage US dealers from asking for ADMs or not. I'm hoping so, as I would like to drive one before I decide whether to buy one or not.
From what I've been reading on other FoRS forums there do seem to be quite a few people who have recently cancelled their US orders so it might be possible to pick up one of those (but whether or not you can find one without an ADM I have no idea).
