Kia GT4 Stinger Concept Photo Gallery (25 Photos)

With the road-and-race-ready GT4 Stinger concept car, Kia is looking to create some buzz this week at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Falling squarely in the category of splashy concept cars with zero chance of ever seeing production, the 2+2 sports coupe was touted as a car designed to impress other designers — from its seamless "shrink-wrapped" body panels to its "wraparound sunglasses" greenhouse and vertical rectangular headlights.

If it were to make its way to the real world, the GT4 Stinger — intended as a daily driver equally at home on the track — would be powered by a turbocharged, direct-injected 2.0-liter four-cylinder making 315 horsepower and mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The cockpit's design is stripped down to focus on the driver experience, with features like pull-strap door handles, race-inspired bucket seats and a rubber floormat, and lacks common comforts like a stereo. Check out the gallery below.

The SHOULD build it. I know they won't. KIA had a nice concept a few years ago, the KEE, they didn't build it either.

Automakers wonder why kids aren't interested in cars? Let's see, how many entry level sports cars have been teased in the past 10-20 years? Dodge Razor, Plymouth Pronto Spyder, Chevy Code & Tru, Honda EV-N (not a sports car, just cute), VW EcoRacer,

And how many made production? None.
