So, e-brochures are out on the new Genesis coupe. Looks almost as good as a 370Z on paper. I'm guessing it will be less money in the hyundai fashion.

Under 3400 lbs for the V6 Track, 3300 for the Turbo 4
306 hp
6 speed manual or manumatic
19" staggered wheels with summer rubber
Torsen LSD
HID's
Ipod adapter
Homelink
Bluetooth
Proximity key

Production pics looks a bit better than these, but I can't paste pics because it's a flash site. http://www.hyundaigenesis.com/coupe

Looks somewhat Tiburon-ish. I see cues from several vehicles though. I like it.

Rear end looks nice, front end isn't that great. Probably my next car though

I like the 370 better, as long as it's not way more expensive (probably will be)

We have a pre-production one driving around here in Newport Beach. Awesome car... at least in motion.

EDIT: Their HQ is here in Fountain Valley. We see all the cool stuff around here locally.

I think the car looks good in metallic colors...when done in electron blue, or bright yellow, it looks cartoonish and cheap.

EDIT: I'd want the turbo 4 too.

Exactly what I was going to say.

edit: I wonder how many of these are going to be debadged, and how many people wouldn't know it was a hyundai?

Not feeling it.. Overall it looks like they simply ripped off the G37 styling and the front end makes it look like an aardvark.

A couple of first drive reviews have read are saying it drives just like a G37. If that is so, then it is more of a luxury sport coupe, whereas the 370z is sportier. What the Genesis got going for it as far as I'm concerned is that it is a 2+2. Not convinced on the 300hp though, I think the 370z will probably trounce it in acceleration. And I have no faith in the turbo 4 as far as modding goes. But we shall see...

Same basic architecture as the Evo X and Caliber SRT-4. Mitsu, Chrysler and Hyundai developed the current four banger range together.

I think I posted a link a week ago of one of the korean shops with an early one throwing a GT30R on and making almost 400 HP...


wait... here it is...

Interesting. A GT30r should make much more than 400whp. But that car made 362whp. Not bad I guess, but I'm more interested in what the stock turbo can do. If I buy a car like this, I'm not going to turbo swap it any time soon. So...again, we shall see.

So the engine is basically a rebadged 4b11? Can someone explain the differences? Where is Noize when you need him? lol

Someone snapped at a guy on EvoM for saying the motors are the same. He pointed out huge differences that shops found between the Caliber SRT4 motor and the 4B11T,and also pointed out the big differences alone between a Mitsu Lancer 4B11 and an Evo X 4B11.

I'll try to find it if anyone wants.

I've put 3000 miles on a V-6 Coupe already. The last two weeks the engineeres had 21 examples out at willow springs for tire testing. They should be back at the facility this week.

It's not a bad car sitting in the drivers seat, but the rear seats are about as usefull as a mkiv supra or 911's rear seats.

and for comparisons........

I saw a dyno somewhere of a v6 with and exhaust with like 290whp or something ridiculous for a bolt on. Supposedly both engines are under rated from the factory.

The 290 hp V6 GenesisSedan posted the same 1/4 miles as the V8 in C&D, so they could be underated.

I actually think it looks a bit better than the G37 - though not quite as nice inside.

I think it looks sexy as hell. I debated waiting for them to hit the lots when I was shopping in November, but I didn't want a coupe very much and defiantly not one with a useless backseat, so that kinda ruled it out. IMO it looks better than the 370Z, although I'm sure the 370Z will win out in performance. If only they had made a V8 model, I just might have reconsidered my need for a usable backseat lol.

They developed the architecture together, but it wouldn't surprise me if each company did its own thing in regards to pistons, rods, valves, etc. But for claims that they're completely different reminds me of the Mini guys saying their motors had nothing to do with the Dodge Neon.

Im totally paraphrasing,but I remember it as the head being completely different,the block having different sleeves,and the internals were different,except MAYBE the crankshaft.

Let me see if I can find the quote.

Id never say they have nothing in common. My Hyundai experiences have been pretty bad,but there's no way I can say that this new car hasnt got my attention.

That surprises the fuck out of me. I have no first hand knowledge, just what I read while the engines were being designed and my knowledge of the industry in general, but that seems like a huge waste of money.

Though that said, you could say the head on N/A 2g DSMs were different than the DOHC Neon, but they aren't really, it's just flipped.

And the Mini (not the '06+ cars) used an evolution of the Neon SOHC motor in a 1.6 rather than 2.0 form. The same motor was used in some export Neons. Engine management was totally different though.

cheers,
scott
