Hyundai considers a small sports car

Article by Christian A., on October 20, 2014

Hyundai seems attracted to small sports cars and due to the fact that the market wants them, the South Korean manufacturer is currently considering one. Hyundai’s Alan Rushforth revealed in an interview with Autocar that there were discussions about such as sports car but he also revealed that it will not be a relaunch of the Coupe.

According to Rushforth, the customers who bough a Hyundai Coupe no longer want these cars. In addition, he said that cars such as the Audi TT create a huge demand just when they are new.

Hyundai’s new sports car would be a global model and company’s N performance division will help the company develop it. Hyundai could also take inspiration form the PassoCorto Concept, unveiled earlier this year by IED a.k.a. the Italian design school.

This mid-engined two-seater sports car was powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder twin-turbo engine that generated 270 hp (201 kW) and featured a carbon fiber monocoque chassis. Although it was just a concept we admit that we would be more than happy to see such a sports car on the streets.
