This concept is official and I'd really like to see where it goes.  I think this is a big step for Kia, considering what an awful reputation they've had.  I'm glad to see the company doing well and stepping up to the plate!

Kia GT4 Stinger

I kind of like how futuristic it looks. The FRS is in a completely different performance and price range from the looks of things considering the stinger is supposed to have 315hp at 2,850 lbs. I wonder if they'll be able to compete with more high end sports cars at that level?

Mehh, i doubt the performance of the car.
Toyota and Subaru spent 4 years perfecting the 86/BRZ chassis.
I feel like it'll over power the 86/BRZ stock but won't beat the potential of the FA20 motor which has been proven to make more efficient power with a stock internals and a stock STI turbo at the same amount of boost than STI motor itself.

I guarantee the actual production car will look a little less futuristic, I'm not a big fan of the side mounted headlights. It looks like a hammerhead shark lol
