Production Genesis Coupe -

Production 350z -

Production G37 -

Hmmmm...I'm pretty sure Hyundai copied off the G37 for the production model. The 350z doesn't look much like the production version at all. Sure the concept might've slightly resembled the Z but the produciton is what's on the road so that's what's going to be used as the measuring stick.

Just for comparison let's look at the sedan's competition styling a bit eh?

BMW 5-series -

Audi A6 -

And for performance competiton (as well as bargain price) Pontiac G8 -


So in summary the Genesis Coupe is copied off the G37's styling, taking cues from other sporty coupes and 2-seaters while largely staying away from the very ugly sedan's styling as well as the competitors for the sedan.

At least, that's my opinion. And both the coupe and sedan are ugly as shit. Hopefully the coupe will actually have a decent suspension package unlike the sedan.

Like it or not, got to give Hyundai credit for offering something in the segment the Japanese manufacturers have seemingly abandoned. Other than a really basic 350Z or RX-8, there don't seem to be too many choices for performance-oriented RWD coupes from Japanese manufacturers. Well, waiting to see if Toyota does indeed produce the spiritual successor to the AE86 Corolla...

That's an ignorant statement. People have said that about honda and toyota back in them days. As the saying goes, "don't knock it till you try it".

Forgot the s2000. Too bad Toyota downgraded the Mr2. Could have used a transversed 45 degree v6 engine and turn it into a beast but now as we all know the Mk. 3 is a girls car.

The S2000 is priced beyond the 350Z and RX-8. Don't think the Genesis coupe will cost that much. If it does, Hyundai messed up big time. It could have the affordable RWD coupe segment to itself.

For those who are wondering about the specs and prices, here is the link to an article of its debut. (Meaning the OFFICIAL ratings and estimated MSRP).
http://www.worldcarfans.com/9081015.001/hyundai-announces-genesis-coupe-performance-specs

Hyundai launched its Genesis Coupe in the Korean market this week with performance specs finally divulged. The first engine is Hyundai's Theta 2.0-liter turbo which produces in Korea 223 horsepower on premium fuel and 210 horsepower (regular fuel). For the U.S. market it is rated at 210hp @ 6000rpm while peak torque is 299 Nm (220 lb-ft) @ 2,000rpm (302 Nm / 223 lb-ft for the U.S. market) propelling the rear-wheel-drive car from 0-100km/h (62mph) in just 8.3 seconds.

The second engine according to Hyundai sets a new benchmark for the most affordable 300-horsepower sport coupe. The range topping 3.8-liter DOHC V6 Lambda RS engine produces 310 horsepower (premium fuel), 306 horsepower (regular fuel), (U.S. rated at 306 horsepower) @6300rpm and peak torque to 361 Nm (266 lb-ft) @ 4,700rpm resulting in 0 to 100km/h (62mph) in just 6.3 seconds. Reports of a 0-60mph time have come in at 5.9 seconds.

Hyundai hopes to sell 40,000 Genesis Coupes annually, 5,000 in Korea and 35,000 in overseas markets. The Genesis Coupe's target customer is a middle-aged male (64 percent) looking for best performance for the price. Although Hyundai used the Infiniti G37 as the benchmark, targeted competitors include the Mitsubishi Eclipse, Nissan Altima Coupe and Mustang.

Korean retail prices start at 23,200,000 Korean won ($18,728 USD) for the base version and with full options, including the V-6 Lamda RS engine, the Coupe tops out at 33,920,000 Korean ($27,382 USD). U.S. pricing will be announced closer to its market launch in spring 2009.
