Looks like it's got the same 2.7L base Cayman engine, but only making 211 hp. Unless this was really cheap (under $35k), I'd pass.

2) The FULL line is actually a hot line, and if you...

That Kia Stinger concept looks great IMO, but not sure I trust Kia to handle the suspension design or tuning. If Honda or Mazda built an FR coupe that had that body, I'd be seriously tempted lol.

I admit I've never understood the fascination with the 2.5RS. The WRX always seemed like the much more desirable car, with more performance and practicality. I guess the RS looks better?
