2018 Kia GT

Kia has been testing a production version (top) of the 2011 GT Concept (bottom)for a while.
As you can see, it looks fine and pretty much ready to go.

And, pretty close to the concept.
But it's been 5 years. Five-years....

So nothing futuristic here.

Seems like it could be based on the Hyundai Genesis sedan. Which will be rebadged the
Genesis G80 or G70 very soon.

Which I guess would then , be... competing with Genesis.
These guys don't really seem to have a clear separate path for both brands.
Kia and Hyundai.
Looks like Kia now competes with both Hyundai and Genesis.

The good part is, it will probably be yet another really nice design from Kia.
So I really can't wait to see the final model.

No Future for the Avenir

You can stop dreaming.

Buick said there will not be a production version of the amazing Avenir concept from last year.
The 2017 Lacrosse is the closest thing we'll get...

Sad, but realistic. Since the Avenir would have been built on the same platform as the new Cadillac CT6. And it would have killed the CT6.

Cadillac's sad looking large sedan would have had no chance against this.

And you know what, I predict the same thing will happen with the equally amazing Avista Concept...

BMW 1 series

As you can see, the upcoming small 1 series sedan will stay pretty close to the "Compact Sedan Concept" we saw just a few weeks ago.
Which is fine.

It will compete with the boring A3 and the "almost weird" CLA.
So this might fit right in between.

Being based on the same platform as the new Mini Clubman, it could every well be using the same engines. Which are the 1.5 and 2.0 Liter.

This could be interesting. And no doubt, really popular...

2016/17 Lexus SC

There is an all new LS sedan coming out. Really soon.
And it will be joined later any an all new SC coupe.

Just like previous versions, the coupe won't look like a 2 door version of the sedan.
This time it will pretty much be a production version of the gorgeous LF- LC concept we saw a while ago.

As you can see on these pictures, the production version seems to keep most of the concept's proportions intact. Or very close.

2017 Maserati Levante

 The new Levante SUV is pretty much a production version of the Kubang "concept" from 2011.
Yes, 2011...

It didn't look that futuristic then, and it doesn't now. Not that it has to be. But after over 4 years, things look pretty much the same.
Windows are a bit taller, stronger shoulder, lights a bit different, etc...

It doesn't really matter, since this will probably instantly become the best selling Maserati of al time.

Here is the 2011 Kubang Concept.
