    The next iterations of the forte shold be a high performance variant and a covertable (soft top)

      I have nothing to back this up, but you have to think that Kia will deliver a car based on the same rear-drive platform as the Genesis Coupe in the future. Although a 200-ish horsepower "Si" version would be cool.
