The FINAL Official 2013 Genesis Coupe Thread

No news on price yet! Nor do we have an ETA for that announcement.

Please help us keep this thread clean by keeping on topic as much as possible. If you want to go way off topic, use the old one. Please refrain from commenting that other people are posting things that have already been posted (looks, power, etc.) If they are commenting on the vehicle they are on topic, and the post you just made is not! We will try to keep this first post up to date with any new information as it comes out.

Please use the link below for comparison discussion between this and other vehicles!

This should be of interest!

2013 Genesis Coupe Reveals More Aggressive Design Coupled with Serious Performance Credentials - MarketWatch

Hydraulic, RPM-sensing rack-and-pinion steering has been recalibrated with an even quicker, 13.8:1 ratio, delivering both linear feel and agile response to driver inputs. This new steering ratio is a full seven-percent quicker than the previous model, yielding intuitive steering response and precision. To further optimize driver ergonomics, telescopic adjustment also has been added to tilt adjustment for 2013.

Spring, damper, and bushing ratings all have been precisely recalibrated to match these new powertrains with better road feel, more precise body motion control and improved ride comfort.

Both engines are mated to standard six-speed manual transmissions which have been extensively refined to provide more driver-friendly shift gating and balanced weighting precision. The clutch take-up, feel, and engagement characteristics also have been refined for optimum shifting ease and feel.

In addition to the steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, each automatic offers shift capability via the shift lever according to individual driver preference. A clear LCD readout on the instrument panel shows the selected gear at all times.

this turbo's anti-knock sensors automatically adjust ignition timing and engine mapping to run perfectly on regular fuel, yielding 260 horsepower at 6,000 RPM and 260 lb.-ft. of torque at 2,000 RPM.

Very glad to see that the transmission has been reworked.

Updated that first post. Hopefully people read it. Otherwise I'm going to start deleting "news on price?" posts.

The front end is growing on me, but then again I don't like most of the cars in the media section with those riced out wheels and lowered body. Guess I am not in the majority in the forum.
