+1, the Golf R is coming, but I am not sure about 3-door, 5-door, or both. I have read it will be coming in 2012, but nothing more specific, and with a price tag around $33,000.
I'm not sure whether the Focus ST will be late 2011 or 2012 release date. It's a 2012 model as far as I know, so it should be released by mid-2012.
As shown above, the Scirocco R and Citroen would be nice, but there's no chance of those making it the US.
I would either be leaning towards a Focus ST or a 2011 WRX at the moment.
It will be interesting to see the new 2012 WRX and whether they are able to improve the MPG. If the Sonata can get a 25/33 rating with 275 hp, surely the WRX can get something close to 30, despite being AWD... I would expect something similar to the Sonata for the Focus ST, but will probably be disappointed.
