This thread is to keep the 2013 Official thread clean of going so far OT since comparisons will inevitably be made. Please keep those kinds of discussions here. Thanks.

350hp/300tq on 245 tires ?

What are you thinking Hyundai? You want this to kill the G37 and take a shot at the Z? - Slap some proper tires on this bitch: 245F 275R and you'll whip off the smile off any Z owner.

the new gen is going to out-do the competition. the V6's are going to be one of the leaders in its class being faster then 370's, g37's and other v6's and staying with v8's. while the 2.0T will be realllyyy up there in its class staying with STi's and Evos etcc. wow i cant wait to drive one! lol

Ford Mustang likely to get EcoBoost - Autoweek


By: Greg Migliore on 1/10/2012

It seems inevitable that Ford's mighty Mustang is going to get an EcoBoost engine.

That's what product chief Derrick Kuzak said on Monday night at an event following the first day of the Detroit auto show, more than hinting that the iconic pony car has EcoBoost ethos on the horizon.

“That would probably be a very safe bet at some point in the near future,” he said.

Kuzak didn't specify which engine could wind up under the hood of the Mustang, though EcoBoost is offered in four- and six-cylinder variants in the United States. The most powerful V6 version makes 365 hp, and it's sold in the Taurus SHO and the F150.

EcoBoost in the Mustang has been a long, relatively open rumor around Ford for years, and execs have always maintained that the technology would become commonly used through out most of its lineup, though never pinpointing the 'Stang.

Ford just updated the car for the 2013 model year, increasing the GT to 420 hp and upping the Shelby GT500 to an eye-popping 650 hp with a 200-mph-plus top speed.

Sales of the car dipped slightly in 2011 to 70,438 units, down slightly from a tally of 73,716 in 2010. Chevrolet sold 88,249 copies of the Camaro last year, handily beating out the Mustang.

Meanwhile, in other news, Ford CEO Alan Mulally, also on hand at the event, offered no guidance regarding his future at the the automaker, laughing off several succession questions.

“I really enjoy Ford, but I have no timetable,” he said.

The execs also were coy about any potential dedicated supercars for Ford, something the company has lacked since the demise of the Le Mans-inspired GT. Sales and marketing chief Jim Farley said the company's goal is to draw attention to performance versions of its mainstream cars, like the Focus ST.

“If they don't love the DNA of your brand, they're not going to fall in love with your special cars,” Farley said.

There's already a video of a 2013 v6 getting walked by a 370z. Not sure how you're saying the gc will beat a 370 or hang with v8s.

i think the 370z has a tune and intake, and then the other car is a G35 Sedan


GenCoupe cheated and got the jump here

The Z has bolt ons, the Genesis was stock, and the Z was on the inside lane the whole time as they were turning, it was pretty even

Questions?????????

Did I miss something?

Where does it show the GC was 2013?

The only thing that shows a resembles a 2013 is the tail lights and those could be aftermarket.
Like these http://www.gencoupe.com/exterior/83833-2013-genesis-coupe-tail-lights.html

For all we know it a 2010-2012 GC and how do we know it’s 3.8 or 2.0?

I’m just saying????? :dunno::dunno::dunno::dunno::dunno:

I guess it's a shame. Ford had an opportunity to implement direct injection into the Duratec 37 but they decided not to because of cost concerns during engine development. So they basically missed their opportunity to keep the V6 Mustang competitive as an economical naturally aspirated V6. I guess some of the "purists" will have a problem with that (turbo lag, very thirsty when on the boost, slightly more complicated tuning and modifications) but it won't be competitive any other way.

I'm not trying to stick up for the Z, because I don't even like them, but it does have a power-to-weight performance advantage over the GC. I mean, it only makes 15 fewer horsepower and has a 200lbs+ weight advantage. That equates to a faster car (from a roll and from a dig). If the new GC can at least keep up while getting very slowly walked on, I would call that good enough.

foreal dude just be quiet. In the vid the z isnt stock.I saw that vid days ago. The z has intake and tune like NXXT stated, ialready knew that. So lets figure this out. #70 with intake, tune and inside lane against bone stock 2013 gen in outside lane and race was about even. hmm rocket scientists where are you guys at??... wait we dont need one cus its quite obvious that the gen would win stock for stock when you put those things into consideration.
