2018 Kia GT

Kia’s rear-drive premium sedan is looking pretty production ready in these spy photos.

The teasing has now gone on for five years, ever since the GT concept bowed in Frankfurt in 2011. The vehicle photographed near Kia’s southern California headquarters stays true to the concept’s general proportions, though the clamshell (“suicide”) doors are, not surprisingly, absent from the mix.

Designed to battle German competitors at the high end of the market, the 2018 GT will source its platform from the upcoming Genesis G70 sedan.

Kia cites the GT concept’s powertrain as being a turbocharged and direct-injected 3.3-liter V6, making 395 horsepower and 393.5 (huh?) pounds-feet of torque. That output is likely to change by the time the production version emerges from its camouflage, perhaps later this year.
