Kia officials say GT4 Stinger won't make production, Volkswagen issues design challenge to students, Ford invests in new Daventry training centre

It's unlikely that Kia will build a production version of its GT4 Stinger concept from the Detroit motor show. Officials told industry journal Automotive News that because volumes for the sports car would be so small, it wouldn't make sense for the brand to make it.

Volkswagen has opened a new contest to design a concept car to appear in a video game. The competition, open to students currently studying design, is to create a full brief for the car including its video game setting. The winner will receive a six-month internship at VW's design centre in Germany.

Ford is investing millions in a new training facility at its existing site in Daventry. The new centre will provide training for technicians, sales staff and management throughout the firm's dealer network. The centre is scheduled to open in 2015.
