    170hp will get you only so far. I don't see how an 07 would be any quicker than an 03 except maybe 5spd vs. 6spd.

    I'd run a stock WRX in my mom's Azera any day. After 30 it'd be pretty ugly. If it's from a roll the WRX might as well forget it - it's gonna get outpowered by the large Korean sedan

    Too bad they didn't use the Sonata's 235hp v6 as an interim upgrade to the Tiburon before the total redesign. It would have injected some real life into the platform.

    Like someone already said, they are a waste of gas. I'm curious what this rumored RWD incarnation will be like.
    THIS IS CAKE TOWN!!

    You'll eat his lunch. Even an auto WRX will take it.

    As for the speculation on the future Tiburon:

    Hyundai’s next generation Tiburon Coupe was recently caught undergoing the final phases of its development program before hitting the international auto show circuit next year. The new coupe is said to mimic some of the lines of the HCD8 Sports Tourer concept, which debuted at the 2004 Detroit Auto show, but the latest images reveal some of the proportions of the current model will carry over.
    The 09 Tiburon will ride on an all-new platform but the front-drive configuration is likely to stay, but with a range of more powerful four-cylinder and V6 enginesHyundai is also rumored to be working on a new rear-wheel-drive coupe based on its upcoming Genesis sedan Unlike the Tiburon, this new coupe would be a premium model aimed at luxury makes and is likely to feature a V8 powerplant.
    Hyundai is well on its way to reaching its goal of becoming one of the top five car makes in the world. It’s no longer regarded purely as a maker of cheap and unreliable cars and is now comparable with many of its more established rivals. A recent survey has found that Hyundai’s image has improved dramatically in recent times, with the South Korean carmaker’s brand ranking improving by 32%, something that will definitely help the new Tiburon.

    Didn't say I liked it Mikie. It is different, but I have to say I've never once found a Tiburon appealing looks wise. They have a decent look from the rear, but that swoop on the side always throws me off. Always thought of it as a "chick car"

    Your latest news bit does make more sense than earlier stories. Having them split the platform into a new Tiburon, still FWD v6, and a higher-level v8 RWD coupe is more in line with what other automakers do. Sounds like they may beat the Altima Coupe / 350Z at their own game.
