Despite Chairman Chung's penchant for slushies, Hyundai's plan to attack every automotive genre, right up to the V8, rear-drive luxury category, continues unabated by scandal. The company's plans to bring a new upmarket sedan to the US — like those it sells in Korea — have been vaguely public since 2002, when it unveiled its 2002 Equus Concept. The Car Connection has new spy shots of a prototype of that car, reportedly set to debut
in 2008 either under the Equus banner or by another name, possibly replacing the Azera. Watch for a Korean debut of the new model later this year.
