Well, its difficult to say that we will see on the roads the Kia GT4 Stinger 2+2 Coupe in 2017, but I think its a good step that Kia finally will launch the GT sportsedan variant, as a beginning to launch later a coupe version. But, we can dream and it’s free!
[ads id=”0″ style=”float:left;padding:5px;”]Thanks to our designer Ozzie from Phoenix Grafx, we can see how would be a production version Kia’s latest concept, the GT4 Stinger. Anyway, we published the interview of GT4 Stinger’s designer, Tom Kearns, where he talks about the concept and its possibilities “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”
So, what do you think?

I’m glad Kia showed the GT4 Stinger last NAIAS. No chance of it being as noticed with the Ford GT. The 3 year old NSX couldn’t even do it. Also, Korean car blog, keep a look out for spy shots of a redesigned Cadenza.
Here is what we have so far on Kia spy shots: facelifted cee’d, Sportage and Optima. Something tells me that a Kia Niro production version, 2nd generation Cadenza and Kia GT have been out but hasn’t been caught on photo yet. Keep your eyes open. I think Kia is using the faclifted cee’d and new Sportage to distract spies from seeing 3 miles behind those all new Kia models.
