As you know, Kia has long been thinking about creating its sports car. During the automobile exhibition in Detroit, the Korean manufacturer demonstrated the public concept GT4 Stinger, which is an intermediate result of reflection. As it turned out, this car has good chances to get into the series.
Tom Kerns, the famous designer and one of the authors of this car, said that from the point of view of the theory, creating a serial model based on this prototype is not at all difficult. According to him, the GT4 Stinger model is just a concept.
Nevertheless, he told that Kia, creating such cars, keeps the idea on his mind that if it decides to create a serial car, she will not have to radically change her prototype. And when the car appears in Russia, the repair of the bumpers of the Northwest.
According to the designer, if the GT4 Stinger models manage to get to the conveyor, she will have to lose some stylistic elements, including transparent front racks and vertical LED optics.
Some experts are sure that the basis for the embodiment of this prototype into reality may be a compartment on the base of the rear -wheel drive called Hyundai Genesis Coupe. According to expectations, the serial sports car is destined to become a competitor to Mazda MX-5, Toyota GT 86 and Subaru Brz cars.
Nevertheless, if the Korean machine-building still decides to enter this segment, the prototype will require a new power unit. The fact is that a turbocharged installation with a capacity of 300 horses, which is located under the hood GT4 Stinger, will look too powerful against the background of competitors.
As you already understood, this prototype has a great chance to get into serial production. The company does not report when exactly this car may appear on the market. Also, the retail cost of a sports car from KIA remains unknown.
