Click the Chapter 4 video, scroll to about 12:00 mark.

- 2011 GC gets a better interior
- R-spec 3.8 may be coming (2012, maybe?)

He said 2011 model year for the 3.8 R-spec in the video, if this is the case it's great news!

Thanks for the link. He said, "no power train changes" for the 2011 Genesis Coupe. I would say, "not good".

It's never a good idea to stand still when the competition is moving ahead.

It's the 2nd year of the car's life. Were you expecting wholesale changes? How many new models, completely new models, come out that change drivetrain in their 2nd year?

Also, what competition is moving ahead? The Mustang is not competition for this car IMO.

"Wholesale" changes? No, but a little power and/or gas mileage bump would have been nice. Especially since the Sonata is going to get a 274 HP turbo. Why not use the same engine in the Genesis Coupe?

IMO, the Mustang IS competition for the Genesis Coupe (rear wheel drive sport coupe?). They didn't just upgrade one of their power trains, they upgraded BOTH of them.

I disagree. They barely came out with the GC and they haven't even sold that many. Most people out there can't even associate Hyundai with a sports car in their head, let alone start buying them in droves. I think any R&D spent to change the drivetrain at all on a one year old "revolutionary" (for Hyundai) would be a waste because it would have no effect on sales of the model, and would do nothing more than upset the current owners.

It's not, and pretty much any review out there will say as much. It's a RWD coupe. The only cars you could really fairly compare it to are the G37 coupe, and the 370Z. The Mustang is a retro muscle car that's been around for years. Almost all of the V6's they sell will be to rental companies, or people who don't want the V8 GT. I'd be willing to bet I could count the number of people who consider the Mustang and GC at the same time on two hands. The Mustang is not really a coupe in the sense of the G37/350Z/370Z. It has a full size backseat and is a larger and heavier car. The GC was never marketed at potential Mustang owners. Let's use your mustang example. When the new body style Mustang came out back in 2005, how many power and/or mileage changes did they make between 2005 and 2010? Did they make ANY CHANGES at all in 2006?
