I was just at the DC autoshow, and asked around. No one knew, but most seemed certain that a turbo variant would arrive soon. They were also optimistic on the type r parts being available in the future as well.

They had the koup type-r there and it was the sickest looking KIA I have ever seen (ill post pics as soon as I get them off my friends camera)

Hmm let me see...

Sportage Turbo...Check!

Optima Turbo...Check!

Koup Turbo....hmmm....nope don't see it. Well there was the article from more than a year ago on Motor Trend.

Let check Kia Media, if it is going to be out by Spring then it will be listed like all the other turbo cars.....Nope.

Here is what you will see before a Kia Forte Koup Turbo; US K7, new Rio, redesigned Soul, and a RWD sports coup that Schreyer wants to build. With the buzz made about it from the start I am sure it will happen at some point, but I think Kia is going to focus else where since they just got the Forte line set up and the 5 door out.

I think the Kia guy mentioned was talking about the Optima SX turbo coming this spring. Haven't seen any mention of the Koup Turbo coming this spring -- not even mentioned in the "coming soon" category on Kia.com.

optima turbo was SUPPOSED to be in during jan and feb. they had it in there manuals for service on the turbo early jan and late dec. i was told by a guy there that theyre supposed to be getting trained in feb and march for the koup turbo so i can add another claim to your story about possibly getting it in late spring early summerish
