I don't see a Fiesta RS in the future, but a good chance for a Focus RS. It would be a tough sell to have a Fiesta RS priced well above the Focus ST. The larger size and price point of the Focus make it a better candidate for the RS. However, the RS model has always been the WRC car and the Focus doesn't rally anymore. I also doubt it will have a mechanical LSD since Ford has been working on using electronics and geometry to get away from a mechanical LSD.

What is known, from a number of sources, is that it will be FWD, gas powered, and have a manual transmission. AWD is heavy, complex, expensive, and hard to package. There was rumors of a turbo FWD/electric RWD Focus RS, but that isn't accurate.

As for a rally Fiesta ST, there is already one going together and plans for a lot more of them for the Rally America series. :)
