The impending Hyundai Veloster aside, it’s about time we see a two-seater sportscar from the largest South Korean carmaker / the third largest vehicle manufacturer in the world.
Since the Consumer Electric Show in Las Vegas kicked off this week, Hyundai has been busy showcasing their new fuel cell vehicle and autonomous driving technologies.
Speaking at the same event, the brand’s chief designer, formerly in charge of penning the Lamborghini Gallardo and Murcielago cited that a proper sports car could be in the pipeline.
Hyundai’s Vice Chairman of Research and Development also reportedly said that a serious sportscar, with a mixed powertrain is probably something the brand needs at this time and would like to have the idea of it promoted.
It was also cited that the “N division” of the brand will be working on it – currently headed by former head of BMW’s M division, Albert Biermann. While there isn’t a specific timeline for the two-seater sportscar, we’ve all seen what the Hyundai i30 N is capable of so what’s certain are exciting times ahead for Hyundai.
