We're pretty excited about the upcoming rear-wheel-drive coupe from Hyundai, which you can probably tell by the myriad of posts we've written about it. Most have been spy shots of the car, which reveal very little about what the actual car may look like beyond its overall size and general proportions.
We happened upon this tiny rendering at the French site Caradisiac, and while our Google translation offers little explanation of what we're looking at exactly, we believe this could be an official rendering of the car from Hyundai, or maybe we just want it to be because it looks that damn good.

The details we've been able to glimpse from spy shots appear faithfully included in this rendering, particularly the wheels and the horizontal character line right behind the front wheels. While this certainly could be an unofficial render produced for a magazine or website, we're putting our money down on the chance that it's the real deal. Either way, if the car looks this good, we won't be disappointed.

      OK, time for me to clear up things here. This is not affiliated in any way to Hyundai. This rendering was a Hyundai fan's take at the new Tiburon and the image is sourced from a Korean forum. Translating what he posted, this is just his own little piece of work. Autoblog, I assure you this is not official nor something leaked.

      Looks Great! Can't wait. We just bought a 07 Santa Fe, what a great CUV! Good job Hyundai/Kia!!!

      I've read all the comments an nobody said it looks like a Mitsubishi Eclipse. For me looks like an Eclipse.

      This render is an unofficial.
      I draw and uproad this render on the Korean website named 'Aoutospy'.

      I was curious to know this model
      so I did render by photoshop program with reference to the spyshots and story by participators who took part in the closed competitive show for a consumer.

      i hope this isnt the real deal. The lines remind me of the old style tibs. I like the flat lines on the newer ones (03-present) And oh yah it looks nothing like a 350Z. I hope this is not the car that they are talking up so much, because that would be very disappointing not only to me but to all my customers

      Those comments are 'old' But there is a difference between the level of 'copying' auto-makers do. A BMW 5-Series looks nothing like a CLS which looks nothing like a RS-4. However, the rendering is very much a 'copy' and has nothing to do with 'it has 4 wheels'.

      3 important stats needed: 1 Weight, 2 Power, 3 cost. I will assume the cost is low < 30k as this is Hyundai. I just hope they can keep it less than 2800lbs and throw in that ~300+hp six. Oh and don't forget the LSD.

      No wonder no one likes the french...
      actually looks like a good evolution of the current model.

      If our Hyundai Coupé (called Tiburon on other markets) profited there is few deep a restylage, a curious prototype was made surprise lately in this news. Why devil this proto would it be curious whereas it does not have the air of it? In fact, it is very simple: does it act of the next generation of Coupé/Tiburon waited for the year model 2009 (thus revealed the next year) or acts it of a model coming to position just with the top? To be frank, I leaned up to now for the second solution since one first of all announced a propulsion and V8 with the program of this future car... before raviser with a propulsion and simple V6. Today, my feeling is very different, a kind of méa culpa in fact, because everyone the advertisement, while reconsidering there and by observing well the photographs spy of various the news, the proto does not post a gauge higher than Coupé/Tiburon... it would thus act indeed of a replacement. While surfant on the Net, I fall on this sketch which, after comparison with this proto shooté, leaves me perplexed. Indeed: the grill, the interior architecture of the projectors, the front shield, the design of the rims, the cutting of side surface glazed, the blow of gouge on the wing before and the rear view mirror are identical on the sketch and the proto. I do not know who hen or?uf arrived before the other, but this sketch either official, or very representative of the car (if is made a posteriori). To follow...

      Looks like XYZ comments, as usual.

      Shut up already, cars look like cars.
        • 8 Years Ago
        Most current cars are hardly original...there's only a tiny handful that haven't borrowed from another automaker's design.

        I agree with AlexP...the 'looks like' comments are old.

      The next decade looks pretty amazing for imports if the new tib gets to battle the new ae86

      Actually, no one mentioned the Lexus SC =P. I think it looks more like this ahah with a smaller grille.
