2009 Ford Focus RS spotted in Michigan - Click above for an image gallery
With reviews of the 2009 Ford Focus RS showing up in RSS feeds and mailboxes, Ford's Forbidden Fruit continues to taunt us from abroad. And then... this. Justin over at FocusFantatics was leaving dinner with the misses in Royal Oak, MI when he came across this brilliant white example of Ford's hottest hatch sitting on the street corner. Naturally, the large "M" in the middle of the Michigan license plate means that the 300 hp, front-wheel drive Focus is piloted by some lucky SOB under the employ of FoMoCo. It's in the U.S. for a reason, but don't get your hopes up – the Focus RS probably won't arrive Stateside until the next-generation arrives in 2012.
