mmm sounds interesting bit of possible RS info. If it did go ahead it would be nice to think that the iconic RS styling bits could be reinstated on this model.

I just saw the article on my news feed. It's almost like they took all the things people expect the mk4 to be and wrote it down....

I would love it to happen but something with the economy etc makes doubt we will see another RS product

Exclusive spy shots.... of a magazine artists impression tells you everything really but we all know that a 2020/21 release is unlikely given that all previous gen RS models are released at the end of the Focus lifespan and post midlife facelift as well. Plus with all the EV hefty gubbins then any new RS will need at least 400PS to move the lardy kerb weight in a hurry. Ill take the article with a pinch of salt as its probably difficult to shift magazines this time of year.

I think in recent times the rs has sold well and made money (mk2&3) so I have no reason to think they won't do another but my guess would be as above and not till after a facelift....

It’s just a mag trying to sell copies...

 

I seem to recall Andy Barratt on record as saying there won’t be a Mk4 RS - not that Ford hasn’t changed it’s mind before.

With Ford's thinking on the use of the names Puma and Mustang, I hate to think what they might consider for the RS.

Performance Car's version looks good.  We can but hope :sad:

Yes I see a comment on andy barrett's fb that the mk4 rs will not happen.
He said it was cause of emissions.
Was a while ago tho.

Very unlikely to be anything RS related, but looks like Ford are unveiling something on Boxing Day.

I wondered if it might be a Ford Performance upgrade for the Mk4 Focus ST, especially as it seems Mountune upgrades arent warranty friendly any longer.

I agree.....Puma ST is far more likely.

Might be worth a look......

As expected, they seemed to make a big deal about absolutely nothing

Probably more chance of a MK4 Capri than a MK4 Focus RS?

Anyone for a MK4 Capri RS?
