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.

Help For Heroes Trip To Iraq
