    Rumorpile: Kia GT Given the Green Light

      Kia GT Concept Now Becomes A Production Model

    The Kia GT concept was quite the stunner at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, receiving many praises from journalists and industry folks. Since then, there have been murmurs of Kia possibly sending the GT into production or not. A new report from Edmunds says the GT has been given the go ahead.

    Speaking with Kia executives at the Paris Motor Show, Edmunds learned that GT has been given the green light and will be in U.S. showrooms by the end of 2016. The production will lose out on the suicide doors, but keep the turbocharged 3.3L V6 and eight-speed automatic. Europe is expected to get a version of the GT as well with a diesel engine.

    Would have been cool to keep the Suicide doors but looks like a superior car compared to the FRS or GT86. This has an interesting design, I suspect people will love it or hate it.
