Kia GT Coupe Concept to Hit Dealerships in 2016

Kia also admits to wanting a MX-5 competitor

Kia has announced that a production version of its GT Coupe concept will hit showrooms in 2016. The GT Coupe will be based on the rear-wheel drive concept car that debuted at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. Despite being based on a rear wheel drive platform, the car is expected to be front-wheel-drive since the only rear wheel drive platform Kia has is a long wheelbase executive car.

Speaking to Auto Express, Soon-Nam Lee, Kia’s vice-president of overseas marketing, said: “We have plans to build a GT – we spoke about it at our global marketing conference in Singapore. We’ll be mainly targeting the end of 2016 or early 2017.”

Kia is also tipped to be showing off a new roadster concept in January at the Detroit Auto Show. Kia has made no bones about saying that it wanted MX-5 rival in the company lineup. There's no word on what sort of powertrain the Kia roadster might have but if it's front-wheel-drive it won't be much of a MX-5 competitor.

Honda Facing Parts Theft, Railcar Hijacking, and Quality Issues at New Mexican Plant

Oct 28 2014 3:25pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

We like the Honda Fit, as it delivers a large amount of behind-the-wheel fun in a small, clever package, and we’d recommend it to just about anyone shopping for an affordable, practical runabout. Unfortunately, we would have to add the caveat that it might take a long time to get one: Automotive News is reporting that production of the Fit and its upcoming HR-V sibling are severely delayed. Fit shipm ...

Kia Teases “High-Performance” K900 Concept for SEMA—and It Might Actually Be Cool

Oct 28 2014 1:50pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

After a quiet year of middling sales, Kia is hoping to inject some excitement into its K900 luxury yacht. First, Kia enlisted LeBron James as the K900′s “Luxury Ambassador. Now the company is building a hot-rod version for SEMA. Here’s a short sneak peek at what’s in store for the V-8 sedan under the hot lights of the Las Vegas Convention Center. Admittedly, there’s not much to discern from the clip—maybe some kind of exhaust component being welded, a coat of imposing battleship gray being ...

Video: Kia K900 looks, sounds snarly with forced induction in SEMA preview

Oct 25 2014 2:15pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Aftermarket, SEMA Show, Sedan, Performance, Videos, Kia Kia is getting all set for this year's SEMA Show in Las Vegas, and among its vehicles is something that seems pretty mean. The Korean company is keeping details quiet about what's under the hood of what it calls the High-Performance K900, but from listening to this video it certainly sounds fantastic with quite a meaty growl. There might be some form of forced induction going on, though we ca ...

Frosty Tide: Jeep Bringing a Pair of Curiously Named Renegade Concepts to the 2014 SEMA Show

Oct 24 2014 5:12pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The connotations might seem undesirable, but here is some “frostbite” you wouldn’t mind getting and a “riptide” you might wish to get caught in. We are talking, of course, about two special variations of the diminutive 2015 Renegade, which Jeep has prepared for the upcoming mod-crazy SEMA show in Las Vegas. The Renegade Frostbite, painted in white with blue front grille surroundings, partially blue wheels, and blue mirror caps, plays a somewhat Arctic ...
