Here are the key details:

– Superlightweight and low proportions

– Rear-drive, 315-horsepower turbo 2.0-liter

– Sleek shape with black-frame glasshouse and very sexy nose

– Concept.

– Subaru BR-Z dynamics we all want

– But far more speed: 115 extra horsepower versus 2.0-liter atmospheric boxer in BR-Z

I like the styling from most angles, and think it will be extremely cool in black. THe rear end seems a bit too streamlined for my tastes, but does have a big hatchback cargo area versus the BRZ’s tiny, tiny trunk.

The cargo hold has a lower compartment for putting groceries — to keep things from flying everywhere in back when drifting on demand.

the concept of affordable and fast rear-drive coupes, the stack of LED headlights and even without seeing it up close yet.

I also love the cabin’s thin doors and the portholes up the interior A-pillars.

These would be amazing when seriously sideways – with hopefully some production possibility in the future via new, superstrong materials.

This car is a concept, which is a bit of news to me prior to reading the official release details. But hopefully “Concept” in this sense points to some real fun down the roads — and around curvy tracks — in a future KIA performance platform!
