I’m 31 but driving my RS makes me feel like I’m 16 again. It’s a great and practical daily driver.


I love the RS, but I wouldn’t say it’s practical? Lol the MPGs are terrible + 91-93 octane & higher insurance rates.

Lol, I guess more practical to me since my other car is an 800whp mustang. My mustang actually gets about the same mpg as my RS on pump gas. At least the RS I can get a car seat in and my son’s baseball gear.

56 here. Yes I say its a practical performance car. Hatchback, room to haul and hauls. But then I find pure sports cars practical too. I had a '08 vette and it has a hatchback and it made trips to Home Depot. Before that I daily drove an S2000 year round here in MN. I got my RS a week ago with the intent as a year round practical daily driver.

49 and have an eclectic car history; from from a ZH Fairlane, XC GS V8Ute, a Fiat Supermirafiori, Ph4 RX-7 and a Focus ST (few other forgettable ones in between). The RS for me is is simply the best car I have ever owned; I live and breathe it. It’s exciting, surprising, amazing to drive and look at; and although I have modified it hard it is still as reliable as a Swiss watch.

58... when it comes to vehicles, I've never grown up. First new car I bought myself, Honda CRX, in 1984. From there is was BMW 330ci which I modified heavily (supercharged, exhaust, swaybars, and more), ST, RS. In between a few of those I had a Grand Cherokee, and an F150, when my life made those more necessary.

I'm an engineer. I love machines. I love making them work better. Performance cars are a great playground for such people :)

I am 67. I find it very interesting that the 60-70 age group makes up 3% of the total of RS owners.
My previous car was a Porsche 911 Turbo (930) and I can honestly say that my RS is a better car in almost every way. The Porsche had less power (220 vs 258kW) and no FWD. It gave a much harsher ride, with poorer roadholding and in terms of creature comforts and tech was more like an agricultural vehicle. The RS can be pushed hard with confidence, whereas the 930 always felt like it was fighting you all the way and wanted to fling itself into the scenery. It's all to do with that flat six hanging out where the rear bumper normally is, which results in a front end that is light and vague. Don't get me wrong - I used to enjoy taking that car by the scruff of the neck and thrashing it on track days and the public roads, but it never came close to being as poised as the RS is, or as fast. I got my first Ford road car in the 70s (a Cortina) and then owned XLE, 30S and XR6 V6 Cortinas as well as an Escort MkI rally car and an RS2000. So I have come back to my roots. My blood is blue - just like my car!

48 years old. Started w/VW's ('84 Scirocco & two GTI's) in the late '80's...since then have had Audi's (2001 TT [leased] & 2005.5 A4), 1980 911 SC, 1963 Mini Cooper 'S', 1998 e36 M3, 2009 Suzuki SX4 (current - wife), 2005 Lotus Elise, 2014 Civic Si, 2015 Fiesta ST, 2007 Corolla, 2019 Mini (current) and onto the 2016 RS (purchased new in 11/2016). I just sold the RS last week but it was an incredible car...I truly loved it but needed to finance a track car.

By they way, this RS group is a great community and I learned a lot over the years from people on this forum.
