We're all anxiously waiting to see what Hyundai has up its sleeves for the updated Genesis Coupe, and it looks like we may have a better idea of what's coming down the line. Gencoupe.com forum member shcboyzone managed to lay hands on a few grainy photos of what's appears to be the 2013 Genesis Coupe. Is this the real deal? Hard telling. If it is, the sports car will rock styling that's very similar to what we've seen from the Hyundai Accent and Veloster. With a more upright fascia, hexagonal grille and sculpted lights, the similarities are unmistakable.

It looks like the vehicle will also feature unique hood louvers, though it's unclear from the photos whether or not the pieces are actually functional. Around back, Hyundai has graced the coupe with a set of LED tail lamps as well. While this design seems to dovetail fairly closely with the heavily camouflaged mules we've seen in testing, we won't know for sure whether or not this is the real deal until we get closer to the vehicle's unveil at the next Detroit Auto Show. Head over to the Gencoupe.com forums for a closer look at the car.

      It looks a bit too much like the Veloster. They should remove the hexagonal crease throughout the front, or make it more subtle. Either way, any form of update to the Genesis Coupe is MORE than welcome, the current design seems a bit dated.

      Looks too short and thick to be the coupe's schnoz but the headlights fit. I don't like it The current one looks good. Hyndai's new nose isn't very attractive. Their body designs are cool but the new nose (the big mouth) is oogly.

      Definitely trying to make a big statement like all car front ends now. Audi led the way with the gaping maw and LED jewelery and now they are both everywhere.

      Looks like somebody took an Elantra, and stuck one of the those aftermarket imitation-GT-R body kits on there. I actually don't think it looks that bad, but it devalues the Genesis coupe because it hawked the corporate styling of the cheaper Elantra/Veloster. I thought they were trying to differentiate Genesis from the other models--hence the Klingon-forehead grill on the sedan. They should've used a different design language to show that the Gen coupe is more upscale.

      I'm not sure I understand the decision behind front end design. Why have it be more in common with Veloster DNA? Once the Veloster Turbo is out, you will have three cars with the same front end. Why call it Genesis Coupe then? It will carry over very little from the sedan, which is on a totally different planet if these pics prove to be true. The only thing holding back the current GC design was the front end. It looked very cheap and puny. But this is running along the lines of gimmicky, with the louvers, and big black plastic bar in the very front. I don't think this is a complete win, and I hope they take all the boy racer design cues off, because they ruin the 'premium' feel of this car. This car is listed in the 'premium' section on the website I thought...

      Well, now we know what the turbo Veloster's new fascia's going to look like.

      I looked at all 4 photos on the gen forum. I can only hope this is some sort of Test mule for a Hybrid Coupe. it employs the same philosophy as the sonata hybrid: screw up the front end.

      I really hope not. I hate it when manufacturers take a perfectly good-looking car, and graft the family nose on to it so that it's more in-line with brand aesthetic. Most of the time it just doesn't work. That said, maybe, just maybe, this might work. I'll wait to see the official photos.
