After six years on the market and only but a refresh in 2013, it is with no great surprise that Hyundai has finally announced that the Genesis coupe will be dumped from their lineup. The 2016 rear-wheel drive sport coupe will be the model’s last iteration.

Hyundai commented that the plan is to eventually introduce a little something that will best fit the more sophisticated Genesis nameplate. The Genesis coupe was sort of an ‘ugly duckling’ within the Hyundai winged-badge family. At the moment, the newly-launched luxury brand lineup includes the G80 and the G90 flagship. This future model will measure up to the Lexus RC and the Infiniti Q60 in the realm of luxury sport coupes.

Sabrina loves cars and hates writing bios, except she’s been told that she can’t get away with writing lazy introductions anymore. So here goes nothing: a long time ago, in a galaxy not so far away called Quebec, a girl was born, destined to love Mustangs, ride motorcycles and master the Force. A Bachelor in Art History and an essay on the positioning of the Morgan cars in the modern definition of the Arts and Crafts movement later, the girl-turned-woman is now thriving in the realms of automotive/motorcycling journalism and geekery of all genre, pretending to use the Force to open automatic doors and to know what she’s doing at the wheel of awesome cars. Sabrina also enjoys walks on the beach, pina coladas and endless sentences.
