So what if fuel prices are sky high and people aren't buying big engines the way they used to. Hyundai doesn't really seem to mind. The Korean automaker is preparing to launch its all-new Equus sedan in regions outside of North America, but it appears some of the big car's parts will make it here in the Genesis sedan. Although the Genesis just launched with Hyundai's new 4.6- litre V8, the automaker is reportedly working on a larger 5.0-litre version for our consumption. Once development is complete, the new engine will likely have between 400 and 420 horsepower, but will supposedly have fuel-consumption numbers that are no worse than that of the 4.6.

I hear they are thinking of forced induction on that engine as well.

OK, they need to make a straight out sports car with that engine in it. No monkeying around with luxo-sport sedans and v6 coupes. Just build it for a reasonable amount like the Mustang and buyers will come get it, I'm sure. Imagine Hyundai making something to challenge the Skyline or Corvette. :yikes:

Direct fuel injection wins

Hyundai stated that the Genesis sedan V/8 will be the first to get direct injection to compensate with regards to fuel economy of boring the 4.6 to 5.0 liters:clap:Then the rest of the Hyundai line up will get direct injection eventually (the trickle effect) which is great news because direct injection not only reduces fuel consumption, but also increses Hp, torque, & response. With that said, I may have to wait on my GenCoupe until this is implemented due to the fact I'm very value oriented & want as much as I can get for my money.
On another note, the displacement increase will be more effective with regards to torque numbers, which is where I & others have criticized the V/8's power regarding acceleration. Once Hyundai implements the engine update, I think they should offer a true sport edition of the sedan (i.e AMG/M-spt) to compete directly with the best available from BMW & Mercedes. It would have much stiffer & responsive suspension, steering, etc. Load it with sport features, including: different ride mode selections (comfort, sport, & track), paddle shifters, wider, softer, lower profile high speed tires, and lighten the weight in any way possible w/o sky rocketing the price. Of course this limited true sport edition would cost more, but would not nearly approach the price of the venerable M5 or AMG 550E. Then they can compare apples with apples & we can see how the chips fall.:jester:

Hyundai has also mentioned forced induction possibilty for 3.8 Lambda, as well as, possibility of turbos for lower line vehicles in the future:cool:

Yeah, I'm just thinking that Hyundai would be successful in offering a true sports car. It doesn't have to be an exotic car, but it definitely shouldn't be a Tiburon either. Somewhere in between there is profit to be made for the company I'm sure. Hyundai is really turning things around from the old Excels of times past.

Possible Genesis super car down the road?

From what I've learned from Hyundai execs thus far is this is it for now (the Genesis V/6 & V/8, Coupe turbo 4 & V/6), but they did leave the door open saying that if & after these catch on, there will be more variations (light weight track version, convertable, etc) & even maybe one day a true M3 fighter. But 1st people have got to buy enough of these things to warrant investing more money into the projects.:clap:

A light weight track version would be sweet. If it doesn't come out though, I may just do my own version! Also I think there will be a lot of people wanting to buy one of these cars. Look what is already happening, like this forum for instance. The car is not even out yet in this country and we can't get enough of the car. I'm excited to be a part of this community now, I'll be able to say I helped start it in a small way. The next few months will be fun.
