    Looks like the Genesis Coupe is about to become a muscle car.

    With a TT 3.3 motor.

    Pony Car: an affordable, compact, highly styled car with a sporty or performance-oriented image and an available V8.

    Will probably cost as much as a Hellcat.

    Not a giant leap forward in horsepower, but a lot more toruqe.

    Engine output will reportedly be rated at 365 hp with 379 lb-ft of torque. Compared to the current 3.8-liter naturally-aspirated 3.8-liter V6 engine, the twin-turbo mill provides 27 more horsepower and 84 lb-ft of torque. It is also expected to be a more fuel efficient engine.

    Re: Looks like the Genesis is about to become a muscle car.

    If they get the pricing right, it could sell well in the UK and Australia - the Genesis is available with RHD with the V6 but not the the V8 - Hyundai also have a 3.0 V6 turbo-diesel they could offer as well to give a better depth to their sales.

    The Genesis is OVERDUE for a redesign/serious update so this is great to hear. I'm glad Hyundai wants to re-commit to this segment.

    Re: Looks like the Genesis is about to become a muscle car.

    OP is smoking something. The Genesis already offers a 5.0L V8 with over 400 horsepower, so this new turbo engine will be a step down in performance.

    Regardless, it's slower than a Chevy SS or CTS Vsport (depending which way you want to go with price) and looks to remain that way.

    I think we're talking about the coupe here, not the sedan.

    They need to turn the boost up on that thing and get it over well over 400 if they want to snipe any potential Mustang GT or Camaro SS buyers.
