Report: Hyundai to start a performance line with a new twin-turbo Genesis Coupe

Some big changes are amounting for the launch of the second generation Hyundai Genesis Coupe.

It didn’t exactly hit success with strides, provided it was a niche vehicle aimed at a very specific market, dominated otherwise by the Nissan 370Z. That said, Hyundai’s been rumored to be looking to change things up for the next-generation Genesis Coupe by moving the car up-market. For starters, the Genesis sedan was already reworked for the 2015 model year and serves as an excellent midsize luxury sports sedan.

So that said, the Genesis Coupe could follow a similar lineage.

Rumors in the past have indicated the arrival of a new twin-turbocharged V6 with the Genesis Coupe, netting around 480hp, according to¬†Korean Car Blog. It’ll also be marketed under Hyundai’s apparent new performance division lineup.

We hop all these rumors reign to be true. At least, we know the twin-turbo V6 is happening because it’s showing up in the Genesis sedan first.
