Styling for next Hyundai Genesis Coupe

What the Coming 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Must Have

There's been a lot of attention on the 2015 Hyundai Genesis that debuts in Las Vegas at the Consumer Electronics Show on Jan. 6 but what about the coupe version? If a 2015 Hyundai Genesis coupe is coming - and appears it will in the next five months - it better be packed with the right things.

Most surprisingly, the 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is not going to need everything the sedan does but there are some touches that are going to be an absolute must. Not having them would render the coupe totally ineffective.

By the way, my informed guess is the 2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is going to be introduced at the New York Auto Show. That's based on the original Hyundai Genesis sedan being introduced at the Detroit Auto Show in 2008 followed three months later by the Genesis Coupe. Just to bring you up to speed, the 2015 Hyundai Genesis is being introduced on Jan. 6 in Las Vegas and again on Jan. 13 in Detroit.

At the top of the list is going to be a powertrain that rocks your socks right off. There will be a choice of two engines in the 2015 Hyundai Genesis sedan: the 3.8-liter DOHC V-6 or the 5.0-liter DOHC V-8. The former produces 333 horsepower @ 6400 rpm and 291 lb-ft of torque @ 5100. The V8, according to estimates, will have 429 hp @ 6400 rpm and 376 lb-ft @ 5000 rpm.

Where is the picture of the coupe? 2doors right? The front end of this concept here looks like a new Lexus, and the back end looks like an Audi A7. IMHO, the V8 will help save this car from the scrap yard.
Another derrivative comment about car A looking like car B. Lol As if you guys expect a car to look like a damn mars rover? It's called a trend. Given any one era of automotive designing, all cars of that era will have a distinct look. For example compare cars from the 50's and card from the 70's. It's nothing new. And if you think that premium brands don't copy design cues from second tier brands, you are mistaken. Damn me for not being able to think of examples right now, but I see it all the time. Except with premium cars, they copy little subtle things.
The average Corvette buyer is somewhere between 65 and deceased and won't be cross-shopping the Genesis. One thing that would definitely get attention is a DCT.
Send more info on the Genesis Coupe. It is the best dollar for dollar whip out there.....
I'm over 65 and SMART enough to understand that after having 5 vettes over the years its time for the look of something that the 30-40 age group may not be able to afford.....did you say that you accept cash? Send me any up dates that state when this thing show up at a dealer. Genesis Coupe only. PS still kickin!!
