KIA GT4 Stinger Concept

Kia is gearing up to reveal a sports car concept during the Detroit Auto Show next week, showing the last in its battery of teaser images today.

The car will house a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine pumping 315 HP through a close-ratio six-speed manual transmission to the rear wheels. Those 20-inch hoops are shod in Pirelli P-Zero rubber measuring a performance-ready 235/35R20 in the front and staggered to 275/35R20 for the rear.

The car also gets two-piece cross-drilled rotors and four-piston brake calipers, all sitting on an independent double-wishbone suspension. In other words, Kia is bringing out the performance guns.

The South Korean brand hasnít said anything yet about post-show plans for the concept, but the gap in its product portfolio is certainly there.

The suspension components mentioned today also suggest that this could be more than a re-badged and re-bodied version of the current Hyundai Genesis coupe. Instead, it seems Kia might be readying a sports car separate from Hyundai that will ride on its own chassis.

Yup, that about sums it up. I'm glad that another company is getting started making a sports car. I've really liked what Kia has starting doing with their designs, so hopefully this will actually happen.

if they keep the weight down and proper cost, this could be a winner
