Hyundai‘s N performance sub-brand may still be in its early stages, but it appears the Korean automaker has big plans for it.

Speaking to the media at CES 2018 in Las Vegas, Hyundai confirmed it has plans to introduce a “serious” sports car within the next few years, and according to Drive, sources say Hyundai has been benchmarking high-end supercars at its Namyang development center in South Korea, including the Porsche 911 Turbo and Lamborghini Huracan. The idea of Hyundai working on a supercar isn’t very far-fetched when you consider the brand has former BMW M Division head Albert Biermann leading the N sub-brand. The company’s chief designer is also Luc Donckerwolke, who was head of design at Lamborghini when the Diablo, Murcielago, and Gallardo were created.

I would like to see Hyundai come out with a midsize truck line that's affordable. Not that city-boy Santa Cruz.
A truck that can be used. Looks decent in base trim. Starts about $17k with a 2.4 GDI and 6 spd manual. A/C cruise control and a radio.
Striped down trucks are way overpriced.

These old cats did alright with the Stinger:
"Designed by Peter Schreyer and Gregory Guillaume (Kia's Chief Designer) at Kia's European studio in Frankfurt and engineered by former BMW M Vice President of Engineering Albert Biermann, the car was unveiled at the 2017 North American International Auto Show."

Super car of the future will be hybrid or all electric.
Instantaneous torque, low cg, no noise/air pollution.
Tesla Model S P100D 0-60 mph 2.4 seconds.
Drive a EV once, you never go back.

I think most of the Delorean's have been converted into kitchen sinks. Yes the Stinger is a very nice car but if you plan to invest for the future in a car I don't think they will appreciate but then how many cars do especially in the short term.

Will have to see how this plays out. It will be a gamble.
