What are you talking about?

 

If you're a BMW nerd, "beemer" is the motorcycle while "bimmer" is the car.

 

Stupidest thing I've ever heard........

I see that the discussion on this one has died off a bit.  Here's a minor update on the Stinger.  The base model will not have the "GT" badge and will simply be "Stinger".  It is expected to have a starting price around $35,000.  The engine in the base is going to be an evolution of the same turbo charged 4 cylinger that's in the base Hyundai Genesis Coupe.  This should give it high 200s horsepower with around 300 lbs of torque or so.  This will put it in the ballpark of other smaller luxury RWD entry turbo models (Lexus IS turbo, BMW 2/3 series with the 4 cylinder turbo, etc).  Being a Kia, buyers should be able to bargain down into the low $30Ks easily.  For that price, this isn't a bad package.  Not precisely my cup of tea, but that's much better market positioning.

Stinger is like a Ford Sierra for the 2010s... RWD midsize family hatchback when everyone else is playing with FWD midsize sedan.
