However, it seems the company is now highly determined to bring this hot-hatch to marketas early as 2016, with officials telling Auto Express that “We have a richheritage of RS cars, and we’re not about to let any competitors overtake us inthat respect.”

According to various rumors, the 2016 Focus RS wouldincorporate the Mustang’s 2.3-liter turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder engine,which could be tuned to produce up to 350 horsepower. The car will ride on aweight-reducing front-wheel drive platform and electronic differential.
