The 2018 Kia Stinger and its pending December 2017 release are the culmination of years of concept work, planning, and road testing, and now we will soon be able to enjoy this all-new sports car. 

The 2018 Stinger is a GT, or Gran Turismo, sports car, so it can achieve top speeds yet also has room for passengers and their cargo for long-distance trips. This gives you a huge edge over many sports cars. That, and the power of the Stinger, plus its nice price.
