No Hyundai Genesis Coupe in Fast & Furious, blocked by another automaker

Besides the storyline and the return of the original cast, I was pretty excited to see the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe make its onscreen debut in “Fast & Furious.” However, I was very disappointed when I didn’t even catch a glimpse of the two-door Hyundai sports car.

According to Miles Johnson, the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe was “ready to go.” He said that he thinks another manufacturer blocked Hyundai from appearing in the fourth installment of the franchise (we’re guessing it was Subaru with their Impreza WRX STI).

Apparently Hyundai never got the official word from Universal Pictures. He said that Hyundai had “a few running prototypes, and the red turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder Genesis Coupe SE” had been prepped just for the filming of the movie.

Johnson said that the 2010 Genesis Coupe was also scheduled to appear in the opening sequence with Vin Diesel.
