Kia could be considering a coupe or three-door version of its new Soul hatch, if reports out of the US are to be believed.

Reports of a performance-focused Soul have been circulating since the first show-car appeared back in 2006, and 2012’s Track’ster concept kept the rumour mill going.

Kia has done little to turn punters away from speculating on a ‘hot Soul’ in the time since, and according to magazine Car & Driver, the company is nearing a decision on production.

In its current second-generation guise, the Soul is available in five-door hatch form only, with the Australian model driven by a 113kW 2.0 litre petrol engine.

But as a concept, the earlier Track’ster concept is a three-door beast with a chopped roof, wide 19-inch wheels under flared guards, and a ferocious 185kW turbo engine.

It’s unlikely that any production Soul Sport (we’re guessing at the name there… - Ed) would be quite so ballistic, but Kia’s 150kW 1.6 litre turbo engine could be just what the doctor ordered.

Watch this space.
