Glad I caught this early-on as that OP content was indeed 'interesting' when still available
This reminds me of a thread over on FocusRS.org about the Baruth opinion piece in R&T. Why? He's suggesting dealer mark-up is killing the market for the RS. Those high prices in turn depress sales overall and Ford is likely to decide "there's no market for these niche vehicles." Seems to me like the same basic idea: the car(s) sell for what the value is. MSRP doesn't mean much; what it sold for a week, month, or year ago doesn't (necessarily) mean much either.
