So, here's some good stuff I found today from the NY auto show:

NEW YORK CITY — At the 2008 New York Auto Show, Hyundai has peeled the covers off the production-ready Genesis coupe, the two-door companion to the rear-wheel-drive Genesis sedan. The Genesis coupe will go on sale in the U.S. in spring 2009, as a 2010 model. Hyundai initially will offer two engines in the Genesis coupe: a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder rated at 212 horsepower and 217 pound-feet of torque, and a normally aspirated 3.8-liter V6 rated at 306 hp and 263 lb-ft. The output ratings are slightly higher on premium fuel at 310 hp for the V6 and 223 hp for the turbo four. Both engines will come with a standard six-speed manual gearbox. Optional transmissions include a ZF six-speed automatic, with manual shift capability on the V6, and a five-speed Shiftronic automatic on the four-cylinder. Hyundai says the Genesis coupe with V6 will sprint from zero to 60 mph in less than 6.0 seconds, with a top speed of 149 mph. The Korean automaker has not yet revealed pricing on the Genesis coupe but said it will be aimed at the Infiniti G37 coupe, which lists for $35,215. Standard equipment includes stability control, pushbutton start, outside temperature gauge and an iPod jack. What this means to you:Hyundai says the Genesis coupe won't share the sedan's new V8 — not yet anyway. — Paul Lienert, Correspondent

2010 Genesis Coupe ArchitectureGenesis Coupe’s body shell is rich in ultra-high-tensile steel. Genesis Coupe is lighter than the Infiniti G37, and its chassis is also 24 percent stiffer in bending rigidity than the BMW E46 M3. Rear-wheel drive provides a 55:45 front/rear weight distribution.

POWERTRAINS
2010 Genesis Coupe 3.8-liter Lambda DOHC V6 EngineTwo engines infuse Genesis Coupe with performance. The 3.8-liter Lambda DOHC V6 engine delivers an estimated 306 horsepower (310 horsepower using premium fuel) and 263 lb.-ft. of torque on regular unleaded. This engine will launch the Genesis Coupe from 0 to 60 miles per hour in under six seconds. To maximize the power band, the 3.8-liter engine utilizes Continuously Variable Valve Timing (CVVT) on intake cam shafts and a new Variable Intake System (VIS) that helps cylinders breathe efficiently at both low and high RPM. The better breathing results in outstanding off-the-line acceleration and passing performance, and remarkable fuel efficiency. The V6 engine uses an alloy block and cylinder heads for lighter weight and thermal efficiency, and features timing chains with no scheduled maintenance.The turbocharged, intercooled 2.0-liter DOHC inline four-cylinder benefits from CVVT on both the intake and exhaust camshafts. The 2.0-liter turbo generates an estimated 212 horsepower (223 horsepower using premium fuel) and 217 lb.-ft. of torque. It also features a cast-aluminum cylinder block and cylinder head. Both engines feature a free flowing dual cat-back exhaust and an available limited slip differential to put the power to the ground.

While all Genesis Coupe models offer a fun and sporty driving experience, the high-performance Genesis Coupe SE is a most willing partner for the true enthusiast. The SE’s track-tuned sport suspension features a stiffer front spring rate, stiffer rear spring rate and unique shock valving. Genesis Coupe SE delivers an increase in roll control over the GS. Superb structural rigidity sets the foundation for precisely-tuned handling performance in all Genesis Coupes.

HIGH PERFORMANCE BRAKING SYSTEMSBrembo four-piston calipers clamp down on 13.4-inch front brake rotors and 13-inch rear rotors on SE models. All other models get substantial 12.6-inch front ventilated rotors and 12.4-inch rotors in the rear with floating single piston calipers.

THREE DISTINCT TRIM LEVELSThe Genesis Coupe is offered in three trim levels: the stylish and affordable GS, the premium-sport GT featuring the 3.8-liter V6, and the high-performance SE, available with either the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine or the 3.8-liter V6 engine.

highlights:

224hp/217tq Turbo 2.0L with variable valve timing on int and exh

6 speed manual

SE in both turbo 4 and v6 comes wiht big brakes, 19 wheels (too big for 224hp, but oh well), dual exhaust (not really needed on turbo 4 but looks cool I guess) and LSD

310hp/263 tq V6

Can run low octane on both engines and only drop 4hp on V6 (and 12hp on 4)


Big questions:

How much will each trim level cost? How much will each weigh? Sunroof optional and not in the SE package, but an option by itself (extra weight and less helmet clearance )

Hyundai isn't discussing pricing on the Genesis coupe, but a spokesman said that the car would be priced [b]below the sedan version, which reportedly will be priced at $29,900 to $36,000.

my guess is . . . ??? (i hope i am wrong and it is lower)

v4 base = $ 23500.00
v6 GT = $ 25500.00
v6 SE = $ 27500.00

What if they come out with the spec R (TURBO VERSION of the V-4) ?

Specifications
The Genesis Coupe will have two available engines, the base model engine will be a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder producing 223 hp (166 kW) and 218 ft·lbf (296 N·m) torque[10] with an optional 3.8L Lambda Azera engine modified to produce 310 hp (230 kW) and 250 ft·lbf (340 N·m) torque [11]. Transmissions will be either a 6 speed automatic or 6 speed manual. Its wheelbase will be 111 inches (2,800 mm), with an overall length of 183.7", width of 74.9", height of 54.5". It will have a Limited slip differential for improved handling. Brakes will be twin piston Brembo, with 13.4" rotors in the front and 13" in the rear. Wheels will be 18" five-spoke[12] (19" with SE) wrapped in Dunlop 255/35 tires in front and 275/35 in the rear[13].


[edit] Price
Little specific details have been officially revealed by Hyundai, however there are rumors of its base model turbo-I4 being released at $19,900 and its [b]V6 model starting at [b]$25,900.[14] These prices make the Genesis coupe a relative bargain to its AWD competitors the Subaru WRX STI[15] and the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution[16]

Official mentions of price includes Krafcick saying the 3.8L coupe will be the most affordable 300 hp (220 kW) sports car available.[17]

With additional comments from Krafcick stating "When it hits the market in early 2009, we aim to deliver a driving experience that challenges cars like Infiniti G37, at prices more like Mitsubishi Eclipse"[18]

It won't be a V4, but an I4 (inline). Anyway, no biggie.

If the base turbo I4 goes on sale for $19900, that would be perfect. You can't ask for less than that. That's $4-$6k less than the regular WRX and probably the Lancer Ralliart.

Other details I would like to know:

mpg?
rear axle ratio?
wheel dia and width and tire size?
gear ratios in the 6 speed manual?
boost pressure on the turbo?
what type of turbo (turbo specs and dimensions)?
intercooler specs (front mount, side mount?)?
rear spoiler? Don't see even a trunk lip spoiler?
will hyundai sell performance parts?

Compression ratio of Turbo 4: 9.3:1
peak hp and tq are 6000rpms and 4700rpms respectively
19" tires are 225 and 245 wide, no data on 18's yet.
engine is square: 86mm bore x 86mm stroke (I'm curious to see what the Lancer ralliart and evo dimensions are for their 4b11t)

I wonder if this Motor is the same one that Hyundai has been working on with Mitsubishi and Chrysler. They annouced a shared engine program a few months back. The biggest drawback on the Turbo 4 will be the weight. If indeed it does weigh 3439lbs then that is alot of weight to move around compared to its closest competitors the WRX and Ralliart. The curb weight of a manual WRX 5door is 3142lbs so 300 less pounds to move about. Just something to think about.

It looks like the fast mover is gonna be the Kia Koup with a 290 hp version of the turbo I4 , smaller , lighter car & probably much more aggressive gearing as it will be fwd . Looks like the Hyundai will be aimed more at the luxury coupe market .

top five debuts at the NY Auto Show , guess who's #1
