Comment Of The Day: Price Hike Edition

I nearly got a D in Intro to Economics in college (thank you curve!) but even I understood the law of supply and demand. Here’s how it works as applied to the Ford Focus RS.

The Ford Focus RS is a very highly demanded car. Eventually, there will be a finite amount of them once Ford stops building them. So, if this kind of demand keeps up, someday those cars could be worth a lot more than they are now. And Ford’s new Drift Stick might actually... work to drive those prices up even more?


As reader PatBateman points out:

Obviously, we’re not saying this is Ford’s intent. But it might turn out to be an inadvertent side effect of the Drift Stick. Who knows! Don’t crash.
