    Detroit Auto Show: Kia Teases the GT4 Stinger Concept


    • Kia reveals a sportier side with the GT4 Stinger Concept.


    We're just a couple weeks away from the Detroit Auto Show and Kia has given us a glimpse of what they'll be showing. Meet the the GT4 Stinger Concept, a 2+2 sports car.

    From what we can tell from this teaser shot, the concept will feature the automaker's signature grill and a set of vertical LED headlamps along either side. There is also a cooling vents for the brakes and carbon fiber front splitter.

    More intriguing is what's under the hood - a turbocharged 2.0L (we're thinking four-cylinder) that makes 315 horsepower and sends it to the rear wheels.

    We'll have more information on the GT4 Stinger when it debuts at the Detroit Auto Show on January 13th.

    Behold, the Kia GT4 Stinger...

    Kia faithful will immediately notice the latest iteration of the signature grille resting mere inches from the ground. The surround glows white and is flanked by vertical LED headlamps. Front-brake cooling vents funnel air around custom 20-inch wheels. A carbon fiber front splitter mounted below the bumper provides added downforce for the car and keeps the GT4 Stinger's front tires firmly planted to the tarmac.

    Under the hood you ask? A turbocharged 2.0-liter that pumps 315 horsepower to the rear wheels.

    More to come. Stay tuned.

    315 hp sent to the rear wheels has me intrigued. I am interested to see what it looks like at least. In a world where 9 out of 10 new cars are FWD sedans with a 4 cylinder it is nice to see a RWD sports car every once in a while.

    Right, yet Chevy doesn't have a 4 cylinder rear wheel drive car. The Camaro is getting ever more expensive, who knows if the Mustang will jump in price. This Kia could be a nice alternative to the Toyota GT86 (which is what it should be called, not Scion FRS).

    ...and some of us continue to wait while the bright light of the Code130RS fades. This Kia sounds interesting so far, I hope it is not too far out in design, and that it comes to market.
