If I get a turbo 4 I'm sticking with an RS, R or STI, you get AWD, more practicality, more power stock, and less weight than a Camaro or Mustang (for more cost granted).

You'd think if you reviewed cars for a living you'd attend a few HPDEs and get some training. Even my dumbass knows how to correct under and oversteer or at least attempt to.

I would hope that it would compete with the 2015 Mustang and Challenger refresh. Both look pretty good for this segment.
