Has anyone seen any Stingers in the wild?

I've been distracted by other things and haven't been getting notifications of my watched threads for some reason, plus I haven't seen any Stingers in the wild recently to remind me to check in with you all, but I'm still here. Only Stinger I've seen was on a listing on Zillow, haha. Needed to post this to maybe get me back on the notifications?

Good for you, @MerlintheMad, for being the Stinger Secret Santa!

Does it get any more rare than seeing ANOTHER GTS, in the same town, parked on the same street where you’re having dinner? Being there were only 800 made and I know of 6 that were totaled I’d say pretty,,,pretty….rare. #teamorange

Don't seem to get notifications on older threads anymore, had 5 pages to read. Its rare for me to drive to the nearest regional town and not see at least one Stinger on the way there or back. That being a 68km round trip. In my village there's one grey resident Stinger and two holiday season Stingers being a white and yellow.

You only get one notification until you read it.
If you miss an email notification, you won’t get any more until you happen to read the thread again.

You know, now that you mention it, I haven't seen another yellow since the whole fiasco with the paint recall. I wonder if the few in my area didn't keep them because they were unhappy with the respray job from their local bodyshop, or if I'm just not on the road enough these days to see them. Four years later I imagine there are a lot fewer than the initial 400 left on the road. Kinda sad.

Does a Stinger sighting on television count? In the new KIA advert showing the remote-control parking feature of the new Sorento there's a black or dark grey Stinger on the left of the silver Sorento.

Six totalled! That's a pretty high percentage - and pretty sad, too.
 
Looking to cover or replace the KIA emblems on your Stinger? Look no further than right here in our own forum store - where orders are shipped immediately!

Saw my doppleganger (well, except for roof wrap and rims) this morning, just on the southern edge of London ... I was crossing through the intersection just as he came to the stop sign. I waved, he waved back :thumbup:

Yeah, I’ve been following the boards a while now and that’s the count I know of, not including others that may have been destroyed by people trying to drift them lol.

Did I miss a meet-up or something? Just picked up groceries at Giant in Rockville, MD and what looked in my side view mirror like an almost matte grey Stinger (but maybe just a stock grey) gave me a double-honk, then saw a ceramic silver leaving the parking lot 10 seconds later.

It's a day for multiples. I saw two within 5 minutes today, a white one pulling into a repair shop driveway in Whittier, and then a black one leaving the PIH hospital campus 2 miles down the road. Waved at both, but since we're all tinted, don't know if they noticed. I rarely see any in Whittier that aren't either black or white. I'd say we're a boring town, but prefer to say we're classically understated.

No pics...live in east central WI...seen a white Scorpion edition twice...today on HWY 23 traveling west towards HWY 49...saw a white Scorpion edition about a month ago traveling north on HWY 49. Any Stinger in my region is a rare sight. Are you on our forum?

Met the owner of a 2018 in yellow I've seen a few times. I was hanging out a few minutes at Wawa (no way that breakfast sandwich was coming in the car with me) and saw him pull in. Nice guy. Said he had seen me around as well and knew how many GTS's there are. Wonder if he's a forum user.

I’ve seen a yellow one (likely that one) around twice now.
