Stinger GT - the only Kia I'd consider
It's pretty cool, as far as Kia's go. The GTS AWD (I didn't know it was AWD), with the 3.3L TT V6 is also probably one of the only 4 door sedans I would ever consider. 365hp and 376lb-ft of torque, supposedly can beat a Mustang GT in a 1/4 mile. Makes you wonder why Ford isn't willing to throw the H.O. 3.5 TT V6 from the GT into a Mustang body? It should be a return of the SVO! Don't get me wrong, I love the 5.0, and probably would never buy a TT V6, but it seems like they are missing an opportunity to beat these guys on their own turf.

I love the look of the Stinger but I like the idea of strictly RWD. Its a classy looking, large scale, grand tourer. I think they may have over done the scoops and other boy racer styling, but its not bad.
Ford wont use the TT 3.5 in the Mustang because there are too many options for the Mustang as-is. They are really pushing the small displacement EcoBoost engines right now in an effort to stay in line with Ford Europe. The closer they can bring the 2 markets, the better profit margin they maintain due to having to produce fewer special parts and more common parts that are shared across the brand.
HOWEVER, Ford has teased a Grand Touring Sedan that should compete with M5, E Class, ect...... I see the TT 3.5 going to work here. The teased 4 door Mustang with a classy look would perfectly fill this segment. No boy racer gills, fins, scoops, and flashy bits. Just subtle and clean lines, 4 doors, legroom, luxury, and that TT 3.5 V6 with V8 options.
This 4 door TT 3.5 would be the Stinger competition.
Its all rumors and renderings for now but I, for one, would be a fan of it.
