Has anyone seen any Stingers in the wild?

I had a 2015 Optima SXL. No mods except replacing the optima badge off the trunk and replacing it with a Korean K5 badge. Ebony black with chrome wheels. It was a fantastic car. If I had not upgraded to a Stinger, I would have been loathe to trade it in. I originally went to the dealer looking to buy a new K5 GT, but I just didn’t like several things on the K5. I didn’t like the tail lights/trunk area, and the Z for Zorro LED treatment around the headlights. It looked overdone and tacky. The Stinger on the other hand all flows. It’s low, long, and wide, with simple swoopy lines. The LED semi angel eye DRLs are effective yet tastefully done. I’ve been told by several that it looks a lot like a Maserati Ghibli. It looks fast even when it’s parked.

Hey, some of us park our cars outside!
No rain here for a few weeks, side view of car looked like it hadn't been cleaned for months.

Black 2.0L in Costco's parking lot this afternoon. Guy was on his cellphone, so I didn't try for a front shot. :p

I've seen the "Taj Mahal" premium Micro Blue a couple more times, so, the owner is an employee. Today the car looked perfectly clean, so I took another pic. :)

On my bicycle ride today I saw this GT2; its a "new" sale of a used car that looks brand new (from Jerry Seiner).

My 2021 does have Stinger on the hatch. No Kia anywhere back there.

Pretty sure the 2021 had “Stinger” on the hatch rather than the KIA logo, so it isn’t a 2021
Yes, that's why I think it's a used 2018-19: I saw ONE 2021 a couple of months ago (@jmcbgardner bought it); the rest were all brand new 2022s.
