Here is the Kia GT4 concept coupe:

Yahoo!

315 HP turbo 2.0. Just under 2900 lbs. The writer compared it to the scion/FRZ and Miata and easily beating those. I know those are still current models, but to bad many writers really don't know much about the solstice coupe and possibility to make it 290Hp from GM back in '09.

It also won't likely look quite like this if they ever produced, but anyway, it's interesting. And they managed 2+2, wonder how much rear seat room there actually is, plus size of the car and rear hatch space? All this and well under 3000 lbs.

Edit: don't just look at the front pic, click and check out the ride, there are some nice pics.

If KIA brings it to life I hope they do as Lutz did with our car and change as little as possible.
The trunk piece looks interesting.

Here's another great piece from the show, check this out, what looks to me like Mustang back/side, chevy/mopar front ques, in an "American Muscle Car" by a small new manufacturer looking to modernize those classics and charge big bucks, DON"T skip the video:

Here's what I like when I see these kinds of cars, though I have no idea how I'd afford something like this right now. I find cool:

High tech performance, not high tech gadgets. This car has an aluminum/carbon fiber frame, magnetic ride control, I like. Having big screen connectivity in the cabin, and power seat massage, and foot relaxer pedals options I don't like, unless maybe if my office was my car, and this car probably lacks these things.

To me the car is triple retro, cool design, and yet, it's decently light, 35xx pounds, not bad considering the power it has. I don't know what other goodies it has, but if it catches on, it will be very rare. Worth the money, if you are very wealthy it certainly could be. Looks fun for sure. I like the High tech performance, I wish general manuf. of large amounts of vehicles would take it easy with all the foo foo interior displays, heated everything, his and her controls, blah blah blah. If you own that 10 yrs from now those will be the things constantly taking you to the dealer for fixing (after warranty, they need your money).
