Hello there, and welcome to the official fan page for the Kia Stinger! 🚘

Okay, this isn’t technically an official anything; I just REALLY love the Kia Stinger and want Kia to just sorta, maybe let me have one for free… Sound like a bad idea? It’s not! Let me tell you why.

Educate Yourself: Learn more about the Stinger to understand my obsession

First, a little backstory

Ah, yes. I remember it like it was yesterday. I was at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show working as an editorial photographer for The News Wheel. As I made my way to the back left corner of the North Hall of McCormick Place, I saw something sparkling in the distance. It was, of course, a deep blue, West Coast Customs Kia Stinger with flared fenders and gigantic silver rims. I was so enamored with the vehicle that I had to send a tweet to all 182 of my dedicated followers, letting them know of my newfound love.

Fast forward to today

As an automotive journalist, I see and read about a lot of cars on the daily. But no car has made my heart race as much as the Kia Stinger. The next year at Chicago, I eagerly claimed the Kia section among my fellow TNW photographers just so I could visit my #CarGoals. Back in Ohio, I saw a red Stinger GT parked outside a Rapid Fired Pizza during my lunch break one day and audibly whined in jealousy. (Yeah, there’s probably something wrong with me. Whatever.)

Anywho, let me tell you why it’d be a FANTASTIC IDEA for Kia to just let me have a Stinger fo’ free! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Hot Tip: Improving your fuel economy is easy with this advice

I would post SO MANY PHOTOS on social media

Sure, I don’t have millions of followers on social media like Global Brand Ambassadors BLACKPINK, but I’d like to think I have a good collection of “average American car buyers” on my list of followers. And isn’t that who you’re trying to target, Kia? In the event that I do acquire a Kia Stinger, I would even go as far as creating a separate account for me and my Stinger. Wait, did I just come up with my username? *creates Instagram profile*

Think about the PR!

Woman writes story about her love for Kia and tweets at them endlessly. Kia gifts woman with brand new, blue 2019 Kia Stinger GT1 with all-wheel drive. Woman creates Instagram profile specifically for Kia Stinger (and includes dogs in most of the photos). Wow! So cool! Kia is awesome!!!

Seriously, Kia… think about it.
