The Kia GT Concept could look different

If we are talking about Kia we can not help remember their GT Concept that had its debut last month at the Frankfurt Auto Show. It's still a mystery why exactly carmakers create the concepts and make us get used to a certain model and then, they create the production version that is completely different.
Let's just say that with Kia there might be an explication. The big number of cheap rear-wheel drive cars coming from Toyota, Subaru and Hyundai are the reason. The carmaker has to see what the competition is doing and only after come up with something else. But, maybe this is how they all think. Anyway, Kia might consider changing a few things under the bonnet of the GT.
There is not a lot of information available yet, but there is the possibility Kia will use smaller engines or hybrid technology.
The GT Concept was presented with a 3.3-liter turbocharged V6 engine that would be able to deliver 400 horsepower, but we would really appreciate it if the production version would have a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-pot with a rear-wheel drive, being able to deliver 270 horsepower.
