Rumor has it the 2017 Hyundai Genesis Coupe will benefit from a new twin-turbo engine.

According to The Korean Car Blog, the next generation Genesis Coupe will use a 3.3-liter twin-turbo engine that will provide around 480 hp and is reportedly heading to production in late 2017. The engine will be part of Hyundai’s new “N performance” lineup, a badge which the company’s most powerful models will wear in the future.

At the 2015 New York Auto Show, Hyundai confirmed that this new twin-turbo V6 will also be used in the Genesis sedan, where it will make power in the ballpark of the company’s 420-hp, 5.0-liter Tau V8, though it will weigh far less.

    It's about time they gave the mighty Gen Coupe a quantum boost! However, while my once-top-of-the-line 306hp V6 R-spec was an outstanding $27K performance bargain way back in 2011, I fear this new rocket ship will probably (and rightfully) be priced in the $37K-45K range (if not higher), putting it way out of my reach. Hope I'm wrong!

    They made it uglier in the front. Can't wait for newer revised model.
