Did anyone genuinely think it was coming though? Rumours started back in 2005 for a new Fiesta RS and it never came. It's going to take quite a major U-Turn at Ford for them to even consider it - the new ST is already a very very very very very good all rounder, and if Ford were to develop an RS model it's going to sap sales away from the Focus (which is more profitable).
Hopefully at some point they will re-consider. With other manufactures having hot hatches better spec than the Fiesta
it may have been a perfect time to believe?
once again dashes hopes for a hot, hot model!
I'm not sure a Fiesta
model would take a too large % away from the Focus. People who look for the Focus are comparing the likes of Civic Type R, Golf R, RS3 and the likes rather than smaller varients. A different kind of person goes for the Small Hatch, maybe lower budget, no family, younger?
Maybe next time around
