Problem is the Stinger is the same platform as a G70. Which prevents it going to the Genesis brand. I think it was a nice attempt, but I don't think they should have made 2 cars on two brands but just one (G70).

And in the US, they've sold almost 2k more Stingers this year (10416 through Sept) than G70s (8507). So... may not be THAT big of a failure.
