I was passing a stack of magazines at a friend's office and I could have sworn I saw a cover article about a single-engine King Air. I went looking for that article and haven't been able to find it, but it got me thinking. Has the Beechcraft company ever released any information in any form that might indicate that they've considered building a single-engine turboprop?
I'm curious more on airplanes comparable to the King Air. I believe I remember reading that they played with the idea of a turboprop Bonanza, not to be confused with any STC modifications that make a Bonanza or Baron a turboprop.
I also realize that now Textron owns Cessna and Beechcraft, so if you consider the question in the larger frame of reference it looks a bit different as well.
