So I haven't give up, not even close, but would like to have plan B :D if I'm not able to get FoRS next year.

If you decide not to wait for year 2 production (if any) and decide to buy the car next year (maybe you have to cos your lease expires :) ) what route would you take?

STi is a good candidate, but how about other cars that are similar in price (max $45k) and performance? I kinda like 370Z Nismo but I want to hear what other people think overall.

Get set. Rdy. Go. :cool:

I really do have my heart set on the RS... But if I can't get my hands on one.. or if dealer mark up is insane, I'm thinking of maybe a used 2014 Stingray.

I feel pretty confident that I can get the RS I want though.

If it's impossible to get an RS for whatever reason, I'll end up getting a Cayman of currently unknown year or sub-model.

2016 Sti, built and reinforced block, upgraded turbo and fuel system around 500whp would be desirable

1. Buy a 2nd used ST for track-only events
OR
2. Buy a 2016 Mustang GT with Track-Pack

If the RS doesn't blow my freakin mind, or something comes up that I can't get one, I have a couple backups:
1) Miata or Fiat 124 or apparently a Miata-based, updated FR-S. Auto-x my Mk1 Focus til it explodes. Give it a hero's funeral.
2) Mustang GT or Camaro SS, if I wind up liking them. Fit pulverizing suspension.
3) lease some appalling, bland POS for work, get something ridiculous and old for fun: Alfa Romeo anything, FD RX-7, RX-8, MR2, how much does an old Elise go for now...?
4) I might really like a Fiesta St/Focus St/WRX/GTI

Magnetic Metallic 2017 Mustang GT with the Performance Package.
But only if Ford themselves told me that there are was no way possible for me to get an RS.

A close plan B, which right now is pretty even with Plan A, would be a 2016 Camaro SS with mag ride. I love what they did with that car, the new chassis is incredible (check out the reviews of the ATS-V) and the interior is light years above what it was.
