Hyundai’s sports line-up has been gaining momentum, especially with SEMA coming up, but don’t think their wild developments are limited to only the SEMA show. Hyundai’s been giving hints at an eventual new sports car to add to their family… and this one is going to be downsized.
We might see a small sports car from Hyundai for the racing scene. The possibly-in-design model is not set in stone yet, but what we do know is that it won’t be replacing the Tiburon coupe that has left the line-up. This would likely be aligned with one of Hyundai’s motorsports programs and have a global model to justify the investment.
“Cars like these, such as the Audi TT, create a huge demand when they’re new, but then that dies off quickly,” Allan Rushforth, former COO of Hyundai, told Autocar. “It’s about demographics, too. The buyers of the old Coupé (Tiburon in the U.S.) no longer want these cars.”
