The company is most likely based off the real-life manufacturer Toyota since most Karin cars are inspired by Toyota models.
However, the Sultan RS and Korean Mob Sultan, including the original Sultan, are modified like Subarus even though they are both based on the Toyota Altezza (also known as the Lexus IS300); and the Intruder is based on an Infiniti model.

- The name might be a parody of Kia as Kia and Karin are spelt similarly and are both girls' names; the logo also bears resemblance to their corporate logo (mainly the top left tip of the "K").
- The name might also be a reference to Toyota's Carina series.
- Surprisingly, there is a concept car by Citroen called the Karin.
