    Spying: Kia GT Is Real!

      Our first look at the possible at the production version of the Kia GT

    We could count on our fingers on the stories saying the Kia GT will go into production since it was first shown as a concept back at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. But we had no hard evidence to show it was really coming, it was mostly hearsay. But an eagle eye spy photographer caught the first spy shots of the GT.

    How do we know its the GT? The Audi A7-like roofline gives it away. We can pull out some other details such as similarly shaped headlights like the GT concept and large air intakes. Around back is a set of quad exhaust tips, which Motor Trend speculates this prototype has the new twin-turbo 3.3L V6 with 365 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque.

    The production version of the GT will likely retain a rear-drive layout, possibly using the platform underpinning the Hyundai Genesis (soon to become the Genesis G80).

    Rumor has it that Kia could premiere the production GT at this year's Paris Motor Show.

    This Jelly Bean is just that, blah looking with a Big Mouth Billy Bass front end. It will sell to few, but enough to keep it going long term and make a profit? I doubt it. Will be a short lived product I think.

    There is just something about how Kia does their grilles that just look so cheap and crappy to me. 


    I think Kia and Hyundai need complete refreshes on their noses because neither make junk anymore. They both make respectable automobiles and with similar language as when they made crap it still gives off a bad vibe...well to me at least..

    My parents are currently saying "goodbye" to their 2006 Sonata as its starting to fall apart.  They loved it for around town stuff.  I wasn't a fan.


    This, I like.


    We have a guy, pretty much all he does is put engines in Hyundais.  And he is busy.
