Hyundai Can’t Wait For Detroit, Releases Genesis Coupe Images

The 2012 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is the worst kept secret in years. First there were spy shots, followed by teaser images showing a headlight here and a wheel there, but Hyundai has finally grown tired of releasing the new Genesis Coupe one bit at a time. Today, the Korean automaker posted these images to its worldwide Facebook page ahead of the car’s intended launch at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show.

After seeing all the teaser images, we can’t say there are any surprises here. The new Genesis Coupe seems to take the old model, dip it in a vat of “fluidic sculpture” sauce and call it done. We say that’s a good thing, because we were fans of the old Genesis Coupe’s styling and we’re fans of the new design language, too.

All we need to know now is what engine changes will take place for 2012. Don’t expect to see the 5.0-liter V-8 from the Genesis R-Spec sedan, but it’s reasonable to expect a bit more grunt from both the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine and the 3.8-liter V-6. We’d love to see a supercharged version of the V-6 Genesis Coupe, which could easily crank out over 400 horsepower, but we aren’t holding our breath for news on this any time soon.

    The article is incorrect. This is the right car, but it’s being released in March-April as a 2013 model. I have a 2012 and it’s like the 2010 and 2011.
