2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe: This is it, again?

Illustration for article titled 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe: This is it, again?

Perhaps embarrassed by the glut of Scion FR-S leaks, someone connected to Hyundai's gone ahead and leaked another photo of the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe, this time from a more flattering angle. My, what big nostrils you have.UPDATE: It's not a fake!.

Someone passed this over to THECARBLOGGER, who gleefully reprinted it for all of us to enjoy.


The new-for-2013 look for the Genesis borrows heavily from the Hyundai Veloster for its grille, vent, and headlight treatments. And that's a good thing — the current model has best been described by denizens of the Internet as "a bit DERPtastic."

The only issue we've got is with the hood — both on this new Genesis Coupe and the Veloster — because it looks like it was stripped off a rental car lot Dodge Caliber.

Will there be a stronger turbo inline-four or 5.0-liter V8 under the hood to back up the new, more aggressive look on the exterior? A boy can dream.


UPDATE: Hyundai sent us a note to let us know the image is actually a photoshop, even if it looks like other images of the car we've seen.

UPDATE 2: Oops. Hyundai was not being honest when they said it was a photoshop. It is enteriely real.
