    During the press launch of the new Hyundai Elantra Coupe and GT, Hyundai North America CEO John Krafcik revealed that the company is considering performance versions of the Coupe and GT.

    Krafcik didn’t elaborate on details, but if given the green light, the Elantra Coupe and GT would get turbocharged engines (possibly from the Veloster), stiffer suspension, upgraded exhaust, and a tweaked interior.

    Still a bland design, and the Civic Si redisn is really bland and wanting also.

    GTI Cooper Focus ST...

    What we really need are small Alfa Romeo's and the VW Sirocco over here....

    I'm into small cars but this latest offering for the east is ughhh.,....

    How about the 2.8L Duramax Diesel in a Cruze? This sucker would pull like crazy and return awesome gas mileage.

    Performance Diesel would ROCK! :metal:

    To their own peril, I'm afraid. Hyundai continues to make quite a splash. Meanwhile, a Cruze 5-door is sold elsewhere. And a coupe is but a softly-whispered dream.

    Do not totally blow off GM. The Coupe Concepts would not have been made if they did not believe there was a market for the car. I suspect we will see one.

    Yeah...I'm thinking the diesel in a Cruze might be fun.

    They already mod the hell out of diesel VW's. why not a hotrod diesel Cruze...seriously?

    ...and probably one we'll not see again from GM, sadly....
