"It's not coming soon, it's coming now." That's the official description of the Kia GT4 Stinger concept, which has every appearance of being a Kia version of the Genesis coupe.
It's the Kia GT4 Stinger concept car. As World Car Fans reports, the engine is a 315 horsepower 2.0-liter T-GDI (It stands for Thank God for Direct Injection, FYI) four cylinder. The brakes are two piece cross-drilled Brembos with four-piston calipers. And finally, praise be, there's a six speed manual transmission.
It's basically all you would want of a 2+2 sporty coupe. The styling is clean and modern. The engine is high tech. The power goes to the rear wheels. This is all part of the basic sports coupe formula seen in everything from the Alfa Romeo GTV 1750 to the Vauxhall Prince Henry.
What's interesting is the platform. There's only one way that Kia could develop a 2+2 rear-drive sports car, and that's by reworking the Genesis coupe (here's the next one) by their partner Hyundai. That's what Kia's already done with the Kia K900 and the Hyundai Genesis sedan.
What's also interesting is that Kia appears to have every intention of bringing this car to market very soon. The only question now is when and how much it will cost.
