Bisimoto Hyundai Powered Porsche 911

porsche_911_twin_turbo_coupe_by_bisimoto_engineering_1

Bisimoto has made quite a name for themselves over the past few years in the US. The company has been known for their freakishly powerful creations. To name a few, they’ve created a few 1000 plus horsepower cars like a 70s Porsche 911, and a Honda Odyssey which packs ample amounts of power to tow around the kids and grab groceries. Not only does Bisimoto create gut punching powerful cars, they also do it with unconventional platforms. So dabbling in the untouched territory isn’t something new for the company.

Now they are prepared to work on another Porsche project, but it will sure ruffle a few feathers now that they released a statement that the car will be powered by a Hyundai powerplant. You heard that right, the company is ripping the legendary Porsche drivetrain out of the car and dumping in the heart of a Hyundai. Well, it isn’t just any engine, it’s their V6. As odd as this combination sounds, I must admit it sounds like another mad scientist creation about to happen. Lets just say we don’t expect the power output to be any where near stock and it should be something quite wild when its done.


The End of the Hyundai Genesis Coupe

Hyundai

News that Hyundai has split out the Genesis name from under their brand to be put on a new line of automobiles is nothing new. But now the brand has decided to shut down production on the Genesis Coupe at the end of this year. There has not been any mention of Hyundai bringing back another coupe as a replacement and there’s no work from the Genesis brand to bring in a new coupe either. But we are hoping that something will be done as the Genesis coupe was a brilliant car in its own right.

Over the years, the Genesis Coupe has received a face lift and a few updates to the engine in the power department. The Coupe started off with the option of a 4 cylinder turbo engine that produced 210hp and 220lb/ft of torque, as well as a 3.8L V6 that produced 305hp and 265lb/ft of torque. Either one of those engines made for a fun rear drive coupe which was in a very affordable price point to the public. As the car aged, Hyundai bumped the power of the 4 cylinder up to 275hp and 275lb/ft of torque which made for a really fun car to drive. But soon after, with sales dropping, the 4 cylinder also got dropped by Hyundai.

Lets hope that either Hyundai or the Genesis brand actually produces a new rear drive coupe to replace the big shoes left by the Genesis Coupe.


2017 Hyundai Elantra Eco

Hyundai-Elantra-Eco

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra Eco is designed with fuel economy in mind. The Korean automaker is claiming 32mpg in the city and 40mpg on the highway. To get to that type of fuel efficiency, the new Elantra Eco uses a fuel sipping 1.4L turbo engine producing 128hp and 156ft/lb of torque. It’s not the most powerful thing, but the torque makes it peppy. Add on top of that newly designed aero and low rolling resistance tires, the Elantra become quite the eco friendly option, especially compared to its brother.

The Elantra Eco is priced at $21,485 USD which slots it in between the standard Elantra and the top limited model. The Elantra Eco will hit the showroom floor in late summer.
