Thoughts on the Hyundai Genesis Coupe?

From what I now understand, it will come with the 4b11 turbo 4 cylinder option (Evo X motor) as well as a 300hp V6 option, however I'm not sure which powerplant that will be.

And yes, it will be RWD.

I've like them from the first commercial. I REALLY like the wheels on that one!! I would rock the hell out of that one!

I think it will be a good mod platform and compete with the new Z well.

MSRP has said to be $19k, but it has gone up over time.

Anything under $30k would be a good price for this.

Somebody has a Genesis V6 4d in Hartselle. I saw it in the parking lot at Wal-Mart a few weeks ago and I checked it out, pretty sharp car.

The coupe will not have a V8 version. They will only be available in a roughly 250hp Turbo4 and a 300hp V6. The Genesis Sedans do come in a V8 model however and make some decent power, but they are a much larger car.

These are being built, from what I heard on Top Gear, as direct competition to the Ford Mustang. The car is going to weigh in at a portly 3500lbs but looking at pictures, it looks like it will still be a fairly small compact car. With that weight and wanting to be competition for the Mustang, I'm wondering if it will be more the Mustang size?

See one next to a G37. It's pretty much like a straight rip off.

That's a hot G35. It even has the Nissan key fob door opener and push button start.
