A next generation Tiburon debuting at any month this year is highly questionable. I for one completely disagree.
It would be a huge waste of money to redesign both front and back lights, side garnish, offer two different alloy wheel designs, revised exhaust, front and back bumpers. The debut would be much too early and would cause customers to wait and not purchase the just refreshed Tiburon.
I think it will still be a while before Hyundai will create a worthy RWD Tiburon. And for the above post, the 2007 is only a facelift. The 2006 is a carryover and the current spy pics would suggest that the 2008 will be the soonest a new generation Tiburon will arrive.

More info.... the new Tib coming out next year will also be the basis for a sport sedan along the same vein of the Talus concept earlier this year. That car should be out by '08, '09 at the latest and will be in competition with the Bimmer 760. There aren't any spy pics of the new Tib available anywhere yet, and the vehicle has been in development since the HCD8 concept debuted in '05. The Tiburon is 10 years old, it's time to unveil a real killer shark! It's late, and I have work tomorrow....at Hyundai! Goodnite.

The photos are from a autoshow in China. I forgot the name.

Nice photos of the mild facelift for the '07 model.
I think that if THIS is supposed to be the 300+ hp RWD performance coupe long rumored, the crowds would be more than zero deep......

Diemusik, thank you for those pics man! THIS IS the "NEW" TIB. YES it is 300HP RWD. Pretty slick isn't it? We are also awaiting a 4dr sedan with 330HP, it's slated for next year, also based off this styling as I previously noted. Man I get giddy thinking about coming off the line in this baby!

Some interesting pics of customized TBs. Maybe not for the purists~

As I've said before this is Tiburon is NOT anywhere near 300 hp or even 200 hp for the matter. It is only facelifted. The auto show itself even tells us of the transmissions available, 2.0L four or 2.7 six.
The first news line you will see will be on the left, with Tiburon revealed at the Guangzhou Motor show.
It doesn't matter if you work at Hyundai, unless you are in charge of development or global marketing you don't have ANYTHING to share with anyone besides common knowledge. Thank you.
