Kia’s stunning GT concept from 2011 IAA, as reported earlier, will make it into production. Now it seems there’s more than one car emerging from the concept.
According to Edmund’s Inside Line sources, Kia is planing a two-door coupe and a sport wagon car based on the GT concept. Those are in addition to the the sedan version which is due in 2013 as the halo model.
The GT is of course a preview of Kia’s new design direction, continuing the revolution started by Peter Schreyer, destroying the dull and boring image associated with Kia cars and giving them a young and amazing character.
Kia has confirmed their intention to make more sporty models a number of times, and the decision to produce the GT is on the line with that decision. Currently their only model that can be called kinda sporty is the Koup. But the lineup is about to get expanded with a Mazda Mx-5 rival and of course the GT-based coupe.
The future seems bright for Kia.
