Factory supercharging goes against Hyundai's internal motto of "clean efficient quality" and while it was a nice puff piece to promote the GC and Rhys Millen to make the Hurricane there was no factory intention, even Millen said that.

And sorry, $40+ for a 400whp RWD coupe? Go buy a Mustang V8, still get 25mpg's and come in with more than 10k to spare. Hyundai wouldn't not make a tosser car like that, sorry, they're a business, they're in it to make money and no one in their right mind would spend that kind of scratch when for the same cost they could get a Vette.

Superchargers are expensive, both to operate and maintain. It would be signifigantly cheaper to put a Tau in it, plain and simple but until the chasis is actually designed for the added nose weight that won't be coming either. There's a lot more to vehicle dynamics than just power.

With the Genesis Sedan getting 26mpg highway with the Tau 5.0 and weighing just over 4,000lbs, the GC could easily clear 30mpg with around a 3500lb cw. That would make a more suitable choice as the GT is 3600lbs base weight, nearly the same engine specs (Hyundai could easily tune the Tau for a bit more torque with the GDI) and gets 26mpg in it's current trim.
The Tau is the better V8 and still the front runner for a higher HP Coupe imo.
I agree with you... it will be a hard sell.

I can only see this coming down the pipe if they are looking at replacing the V8's with a forced induction v6, but I SERIOUSLY doubt we will see a supercharged v6 anytime in the future... in fact I would find it much more likely that we would see a turbo v6 before we would see a supercharged motor....

this have been ushered officially awhile ago by HMA, so if not for the 2014 model, next gen '15 would definitely have it.

It makes sense to have a GT-R there; With the fact that hyundai is building an AWD platform for next gen genesis/coupe/equus, add a 3.8 Supercharged and you have a something to benchmark against an R35

which is good, and we all know what was produced when they benchmarked for the E46 BMW M3. thinking that way am more doubtful that they will reach the GT-R level of performance than doubting the possibility of actually putting in a supercharger.

You know the AWD makes a LOT more sense then any forced induction + the V6 and even I4. I think that might have been the real story behind the rumour.

IMO an AWD 2.0T or AWD 3.8L would be a quick sell for me, Genesis sedan + AWD + 5.0L, goose bumps!

AWD has only been confirmed for the Equus and Genesis Sedan at this point. While loads of people both at Hyundai and in the community would love to see an AWD GC, fact is, it might not happen. Personally, I'd trade my '10 for a i4 AWD GC as long as it doesn't get too fat.

Couldnt agree more Snoopy...I think we'd see a GDi Tau in a GC before a factory made FI Lambda...even that...slim chance

I've just spoken with waaaay too many corporate techs over the past few years to believe that Hyundai would completely go against their business model and offer up an inefficient engine solution. Hyundai is an inexpensive brand (not read cheap) and supercharging goes completely against that. Can't argue the benefits of supercharging vs. turbo but the cons are exactly what Hyundai doesn't want.

Sorry if I'm seemingly overly agressive or whatever but tbh, these speculation threads get out of control really fast and filled with a ton of information that is down right wrong.

Well I think that a turbo or even a supercharged v6 makes a lot more sense than a N/A v8... better gas mileage, more power, and I honestly don't think it would cost that much more...

Granted I would be happiest with a Turbo V8... but It makes sense to me that a FI V6 is in the cards, I just don't think we will see it next year... at least not in the coupe.

Hyundai has not really kept it's engine development that tightly under wraps. They announced the GDI 1.6T, and the GDI 2.0T well in advance of development being complete, and years before they were in a production car. If there was going to be a SC or turbo V6 for next year, we would of heard about it at least a year ago.

It would certainly boostup the Gen Coupe's popularity.. TOO LITTLE people know about this car, which is cool because it has a cool unique feel seeing everybody wondering what the fck you're driving, but I wish it had a bit more notoriety

I would definitely buy a more expensive, higher HP GC before either a Vette or Mustang. If for no other reason than the fact that my wife hates American muscle cars.

She actually told me that if I bought either car she would never ride in it with me. To some guys that might be a selling point, but I love my wife!

so true about pricing , anything over $35K-$40K for genesis coupe either in turbo or supercharged , its going to be tougher market for year 2015 unless other car makers price their coupes at $45K and up....I do not see that happening.

Isn't this covered by having multiple price points for a selection of models?

I agree totally, just remember what Toyota did to the Supra, Mazda to the RX-7 and Nissan with the 300Z back in the day. They basically destroyed those models by pricing them out of the market. They went from affordable sports cars in the mid 1980's to + $30,000 cars in the 1990's and then they were gone. Basically the only one to make a successful comeback is the Z. The GC is already a small production car, it was a big deal when they raised the prices on the 2013 models, add thousands more and it's dead too.

Guys, if you recall, the S4 went from a V8 to a supercharged V6, similar principles may apply if Hyundai chooses to go FI in the next GenCoupe.

Honestly, however, I find it difficult to asertain that the would be putting more than 400hp in a Genesis Coupe, which was originally developed as an entry level sports car/Mustang competitor.

Perhaps they're looking to add another vehicle into their lineup that superceeds the Genesis Coupe? That would make sense.

Isn't there a rumor floating around about a four door competitor to the M3
