Kia GT five-door approved, will tackle A7, Panamera

The Kia GT is a sporty four-door concept car that was first introduced in the Frankfurt auto show back in 2011. But it has been given the green light to go into production, estimated around 2016. This model is to run against expensive competitors such as the Audi A7 and the Porsche Panamera, but for thousands less which would interest the current buyer much more. This model is predicted to have a 3.3-liter turbocharged V6 making 389 horsepower and 394 pound-feet of torque, accompanied by an 8-speed automatic transmission. Some of the flasher parts of the car such as the suicide doors will not be put into production, due to the average transition from concept to showroom. Other models of the GT have been speculated to be in future production, but the auto maker must see how the GT itself does in the market.
