My local dealer said that they wouldn't get any Stingers until around the November timeframe. But how knows. Can't wait to see it.

Due in Australian showrooms late September/early October . . . or so we have been led to believe.
We will only get rear wheel drive though. They are telling us it has to do with the steering wheel being on the right hand side!!! Wouldn't mind betting Kia Aust is hedging their bets and waiting for a later update to include AWD.

Further to the above . . . have been told that ALL 400+ Stingers in the first shipment to Australia have been spoken for. Get your order in now for delivery in March '18.
My dealer has ONE show vehicle (not demonstrator) coming to their showroom late and "I may be able to give you a viewing soon."

863 units were built for export in August. These can go anywhere in the world, except South Korea where they built 709 for their local market.

Ours are here! but as mentioned in my previous comment they have all been spoken for (400+ on the first shipment). Australia, it seems, misses out on the all wheel drive, opting instead for rear wheel drive only. Some say it's because AWD hasn't been engineered (yet) for RHD, others suggest that the Aussie market is only interested in RWD.
