Will the Kia GT4 Stinger Arrive in 2014?

Rumor

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 DetroitAuto Show was this jaw-dropping concept from Korean automaker, Kia. Thegorgeous GT4 drew a lot of buzz at the show. Even though it waspresented as a concept car, pre-reveal leaks from Kia said: "It'snot coming soon, it's coming now." According to a TopSpeed report,these same officials are now saying the show-stopping concept car maybecome a showroom reality as early as the final quarter of this year.

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