      I am absoutely stunned that Hyundai can build such an attractive and well equipped and optioned proper RWD coupe and Toyota/Honda cannot.

      This is just stunning in pics. Some of those modded coupes are superb!!!!!!


    12. 01-22-2009 09:27 PM #12
      wow. Absolutely stunning! Every single one of them.

      the nose of that car is the UGLIEST thing I have ever seen not counting the 370z.

      the side and rear profile of that car save it completely.

      So this Genesis thing...sometimes it is badged as a Hyundai and sometimes badged as a Genesis GT380lmnopqrsz?

      reminds of of douches who would rebadge their Tiburon's with a different name Tuscani as if that was the brand-maker name. Makes me think....if it is such an awesome car (Tiburon) why hide the fact that it is a Hyundai?

      It's not like people rebadge their Jetta with "Bora" and suddently it isn't a VW anymore....at least those guys have the decency to leave the VW emblem.....But this Genisis/GT/Tiburon thing...meh.

      I know it was probably sold "elsewhere" as something else, but come-on...its a friggin hyundai.

      first car i'd seriously consider buying from my home country. the nose is a bit goofy, looks like it was pinched or something. but it's a good looking car

      What in the hell? All the pics are in Korea, it hasn't been exported yet.

      Plenty of people debadge their cars and take the emblems off. I did on one of my Lexus.

      R U trying to tell me every VW has a VW badge on it?

      If I could change one thing about that car it would be the rear window. I don't really like the downward curve it takes. Other than, its gorgeous.

      Because the big "T" badges are how the Tuscani-trim level Tiburons were sold in Korea--without the Hyundai badging. It's simply KDM.

      I wish people would stop saying that. Ever driven a BMW Isetta? It's crap. Total sh!t. Many of the early 50s, post-war BMWs aren't particularly any better. The 501 and 503 were crap, and the 507 flopped. The 700 is highly overrated because, in highly-modified form, it won some races.

      So, considering that BMWs of yore were garbage, do you look at an M3 and go, hey, it's just a BMW?

      DEbadging and REbadging are quite different.

      Taking "Jetta" off your VW and putting "BORA" is rebadging...

      Completely removing all Badges (Maker and Model) and replacing it with something completely different is retarded.

      I would see these "Tuscani" cars and say "wow looks exactly like those piece of crap Tiburons". It is still a Hyundai, not a Tuscani

      He actually said three things, but he was speaking in VW-Fanboy-ese. Let me translate.

      1) I don't know what "Tuscani" means, nor the word's relation to the Tiburon.

      2) Due to lack of knowledge on the subject, I have a license to make all kinds of assumptions about #1.

      3) Rebadging VWs is cool; rebadging Hyundais is not because they're "friggin Hyundais."

      The trouble is, #2 and #3 don't translate so well into normal English. It makes perfect sense in VW-Fanboy-ese, but the typical lack of reason or rational thought just comes off sounding stupid to the rest of us.

      Maybe someone from the MK4 forums can fill in the blanks.

      whoa who took the jam out of your donut, calm down buddy (or friend, or pal)

      a bora's still a jetta, so i don't know how that's relevant to what you're trying to say, but everyone has his/her own way of making his/her way individual, that's something call the FREEDOM to do whatever, which i'm sure as an american you should know better

      plus they never rebadged it as a merc or a bimmer, so yes it's still a hyundai, except now it's an awesome hyundai, not the hyundai image u still have in your head

      These all look great, Hyundia has hit a home run with this one for sure.


      On a side note....I want these damn wheels for my car! If they made them in the right offset I'd have them ASAP.

      What car company doesn't use another's cues? You do realize car designers all went to the same schools right.
