We’ll apologize in advance that we can’t give you a whole lot of detail on the above photo. It first appeared on Hyundai Blog, under the title of “2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe,” and the styling does indeed tie the Coupe into Hyundai’s latest “fluidic sculpture” design language. There’s the now-familiar hexagonal grille, along with the sculpted hood and character lines running from the front fenders and across the door. I’m even seeing a bit of the Nissan GT-R in the front end design, although I don’t think the resemblance is intentional.
The current Genesis Coupe has been the red-headed stepchild of Hyundai’s lineup, getting minimal refreshes since its launch in 2009 as a 2010 model. The Genesis sedan has gotten more power and new engine choices, as well as an eight speed automatic. The Genesis Coupe, meanwhile, has gotten one new variant (the 3.8-liter Genesis Coupe R-Spec), leading many to believe that Hyundai wasn’t serious about targeting the enthusiast market.
There’s no word yet on what the new Genesis Coupe may be packing under its hood, but the revised 3.8 liter V-6 in the Genesis Sedan got a boost in horsepower from 290 to 333 for the 2012 model year. That same engine should be used in the Genesis Coupe, which means a gain of some 27 horsepower from 2011 to 2012. We really want to know if Hyundai is planning to fit the new 5.0-liter Tau V-8 in the 2013 Genesis Coupe, since the engine’s 429 horsepower could make the updated Genesis Coupe a legitimate challenger to the Ford Mustang and Chevy Camaro.
Hyundai still has 2012 Genesis Coupes to sell (and plenty of leftover 2011s, I’m sure), so don’t expect a lot of details on the 2013 Genesis Coupe in the near future.
