Rumor

Will the Kia GT4 Stinger Arrive in 2014?

Kia is said to be making good on its Detroit concept promise before year’s end.

One of the most interesting unveilings at last month's Detroit Auto Show was this jaw-dropping concept from Korean automaker, Kia. The gorgeous GT4 drew a lot of buzz at the show. Even though it was presented as a concept car, pre-reveal leaks from Kia said: "It's not coming soon, it's coming now." According to a TopSpeed report, these same officials are now saying the show-stopping concept car may become a showroom reality as early as the final quarter of this year.

While the all-yellow concept Stinger was shown in Detroit with a 2.0-liter, 315-horsepower four-cylinder turbo, we expect the production car to employ the Optima SX Turbo’s 2.0-liter engine, which makes 274 hp in the sedan. With additional tweaks, Kia could probably milk the engine for an additional 10-15 horses, making a 290 hp production model very realistic. While the interior is still being worked on, Kia insiders say the exterior will remain virtually identical to the NAIAA model - vertical LED headlights and all.
