Kia GT4 Stinger Cabriolet Concept2

Well, its difficult to say that we will see on the roads the Kia GT4 Stinger 2+2 Coupe in 2016, but I think its more difficult that Kia will launch after the Coupe, a Cabrio version. But, we can dream!

Thanks to Hungarian Designer X-Tomi, we can see how would be the Cabrio version of Kia’s latest Concept. Anyway, yesterday we published the interview of GT4 Stinger’s designer, Tom Kearns, with Auto Express: “It’s a total concept, but when we do these cars we have in the back of our minds that if we decide to make it, we don’t have to change it too much.” said Kearns.

According to Kearns, the two areas that are most likely to change are the radical LED light stack and the innovative see through A-pillars. “The gaps in the A-pillars aren’t symmetrical so it works well from the driver and passenger seat,” he said. “Pillars are getting bigger and bigger by requirement – it’s a big problem, so we looked for a solution.” 

When questioned about a potential price for the GT4 Stinger, Kearns said: “We’re looking at the Scion [Toyota GT-86] and [Subaru BRZ], and even the Mazda MX-5 – true enthusiast, affordable cars. Pricing has to be fitting for a Kia – it’s a value brand”
