I want an all wheel drive two door coupe based off of the focus RS platform already. I just want an all wheel drive two door coupe in general.

Economics.  While it would be nice to see this car, it would need to share a lot of parts other than just frame and drivetrain with another car to make it profitable.

I'd also assume that the crash cell would need to be redone going from 2 to 4 doors.

No they don't, and it's not the 60s anymore.

Fun fact of the day...that time period was nearly FUCKING 60 years ago! It was a life time ago and life isnt' even the same it was 17 years ago.

Tell that to the people looking for a Town Car or a Continental with suicide doors and rear wheel drive. :)

I want a GT.  That they already make and used availability is not an issue.  I've ID'd one I want at $299,999.00.   Just gotta' convince the wife to sell the house and I'm good to go.

But look at all the great crossovers, trucks and SUVs you can choose from and they all really inspire fun driving.
