Cosworth Genesis Racing Series Coupe, SEMA 2012

A year ago, Hyundai Motor America CEO John Krafcik said the company was open to the idea of a 5.0-liter V-8 Genesis Coupe, but any decision to move forward would depend on feedback from the press and the public. It looks like there may be some movement now, following a recent powertrain technical presentation.

During the presentation, John Juriga is said to have hinted at the possibility of a turbocharged version of the 3.8-liter V-6 currently found in the Genesis Coupe, according to Hyundai Blog. The same engine could also end up in the sedan.

While it's as yet unclear when, or even if, Hyundai might actually build such a car, the SEMA show, which starts tomorrow, may be a good place to preview just what a V-8 or turbo V-6 Genesis Coupe might look like.

Cosworth's interpretation of the turbo V-6 Genesis Coupe (pictured) offers 389 horsepower, but we wouldn't expect to see any Cosworth parts on a production version, if only due to cost. The power figure could be close to accurate, however, as the standard normally aspirated 3.8-liter V-6 engine generates a fairly stout 348 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque on its own.
