Hyundai Convertible: Genesis Coupe Cabrio Image Renderings
Hyundai Genesis Coupe cabriolet saga continues…
Unfortunately, Hyundai of USA has killed the speculations and rumors about bringing a convertible version of the Genesis Coupe to the market!
Mr. Miles Johnson, manager of product public relations at Hyundai Motor America, has denied rumors stating that the carmaker has proceded with developing a cabrio variant of rear-wheel-drive Genesis Coupe.
He told us that the all-new Genesis Coupe wasn’t developed to be a convertible from the ground up.
“It was developed as a global car. The wind in your hair doesn’t work in Korea, and there’s not enough volume in the U.S.” said Miles.

According to his statement, there are no plans for any future Hyundai convertibles, although some sources indicate that the use of retractable hardtops has already been slated for some future Hyundai products.
Too bad Hyundai Genesis Coupe convertible will never become a production reality!
