In the words of Papa Bear, "What does it meeeeean?"
Here is my blog post, in which I was paid to rant about how awesome the RS will be, and what it will mean for the industry, as long as I added a sales hook at the end.
TL;DR/Didn't feel like clicking through: If human-driven cars ever become extinct, cars like this will be the first to go. Enthusiasts still ride horses today, and enthusiasts will still drive Ford GTs in 100 years. But normal commuter cars turned into insane rally cars won't be the ones to survive. And that's a big reason it's so awesome that Ford is doing this.
