Hyundai's replacement for the Tiburon (aka the "Coupe" outside the U.S.) will make its official debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show next September. As expected, the new Coupe will be inspired by the Velostar concept that debuted in Seoul last year and will be built atop the Hyundai i30/Kia Forte's front-wheel-drive platform. Hyundai insiders suggest that the Coupe will be approximately the size of the last generation Toyota Celica, smaller than the upcoming Genesis Coupe, and will feature a shooting-brake body style.

The new Coupe will go on sale abroad shortly after its unveiled in Frankfurt, and there's no word yet on when Hyundai will import the new two-door to the U.S. to replacing the aging Tiburon.

Nice - I like the lines - very, very reminiscent of the RX-8.

Ah, Its Hyundai's fault the poor Tiburon sucked so much they now need to replace it. If they just added the 3.5 or even the 3.8l V6 and replaced the 2.7 like they should have when they changed the body style they wouldnt be having to replace it. I would have bought a new one had they given it a more powerful engine. At least 200hp.

On a lighter side it looks good. Too bad most us guys are going for the Genesis Coupe...lol
