The Hyundai "N" sub brand was launched in 2013 to much ridicule.

All the things that we can make fun of has already been made fun of. The only gripe I have with Hyundai is the same with every car maker.... "Concept car this, concept car that... blah blah blah... oh, we'll never actually build it... but here's another concept!"

A defining day for Notorsports and the autonotive industry!

I kid, though. I am in for a test drive if they do a sub-genesis RWD sedan with a heavy performance emphasis.

Not to mention that Ford and Shelby were building GT350's in the 1960's when BMW had doddlety-squat in the performance realm.

Things change. Wheels turn. M cars aren't what they used to be. I think there is an audience for an honestly visceral (i.e. not piped in through the sound system) driving experience, and I don't think the M cars do that like they used to. Then again maybe I'm just old and everyone today wants their real car to be just like the one in the video game and BMW has it nailed.

I don't think it is take on M it might be more inline with Dodge SRT cars, Honda Type R, Subaru WRX and Evo probably.

N is for Nemesis

Genesis Nemesis

Good for them. Competition is good and maybe their cars will be surprising. Anyone in this thread hating on the idea is a bag of dicks.

Seriously- that seems like lawsuit potential via "confusion".

I don't get the hate. The more performance cars on the road the better!

Look at the Fiesta ST, brilliant car!
