3.8 gDI- 350HP, 295lb

8-speed automatic transmission or 6-speed manual. I'm sure the gas mileage will still be impressive, as well.
Nice. I would be curious about the fuel economy on the 2.0T.

It's the same 2.0 Tci Theta that's in the Sonata Turbos, so I'm guessing fuel economy should be around 32-34 Hwy and 23-25 City.

It will prolly look better in person. So i hold my negative judgment until then... Rear tails look nicer tho.

Is it just me, or do those headlights / taillights / front air dams have a lot of "Elvis lip" going on there? Everytime I look at the front, I think of either Elvis or Billy Idol.

If only they didn't use the cheapo lancer block in the 2.0t.. It would be nice to have a strong motor for some boost.

You can still get an easy 320whp out of the 2.0 though.. of course bye bye warranty.

I think they look like a mini G35 coupe.

For the price and for what you get for performance I really like the Genesis coupe. Especially the R-Spec or track editions. Look how Hyundai was 10 years ago and look at them now, they have my respect for how well they have improved in that time.

I personally don't give a **** if it's a Hyundai or not. If people feel insecure about what badge they have on their car, then that's their problem. I love the fact that its a Hyundai because its sort of like a sleeper IMO.

The 3.8 Spec R and Track models have 347hp, Torsen limited slip diff, 6 speed Manual, RWD and Brembo brakes. I mean come on. That's not bad at all for the price.

Nothing that sticking in their 5.0 motor wouldn't cure, then nobody would ever see the front of the car!
