Update1: This article has been updated to remove some amateur renderings of the rear-drive coupe ahead of its show debut today.
The real thing looks AMAZING!
Kia is building buzz around the debut of its first RWD performance coupe with a new teaser image and an official name: the GT4 Stinger.
That is an aggressive badge, and one that leaves room for this car to compete with the Ford Mustang or Subaru BRZ at one end, or perhaps even the BMW M6 on the top end.
The Stinger GT4 is more likely to hit the market with a $32,000 price point to match its 316-horsepower turbo four powerplant. The car looks unusual so far, but the two teaser images have been deliberately obscure.
Highlights include twin stacks of LED bulbs at the outer edge of the forward grille face, which is very different from the swept-back headlamps shown in the exclusive renderings below.
Adding light and digitally enhancing the teasers also reveals a bit more detail about this fastback shape.
There are echoes of the Audi R8 up front, but strong hints of the Porsche 911 Carrera from the top, or plan, view.
Very enticing, and with a name like GT4 Stinger, this Kia could be a fantastic Nurburgring racing platform as well.
