Personally, I kinda figured there wouldn't be any major changes with the sophomore iteration of the Genesis. There may be some tweaks here and there, but why mess with something that seems to be a pretty successful package already, right?
As far as the massaging of the powerplant...don't hold your breath. I think that is the main reason that Hyundai has already made the Genesis Coupe available to the aftermarket houses to create bolt on parts for the Coupe. The 4 cyl. model will likely see more aftermarket pieces than the V-6 version, but I'm sure a super/turbo charger of some sort will be available for the V-6.
As far as hp numbers go, it could very well be the numbers based on premium fuel. The 303 hp figure will most likely be what the output is using regular with a nice little boost with premium. The Genesis Sedan 3.8 puts out 368 hp using regular and 375 hp on premium.

BTW, I thought the Lambda RS engine's output was 303-306 hp; the article below indicates 310 - is this due only to using premium fuel, or Hyundai's reaction to the new Mustang (315-hp 4.6-liter V8)?
At its core, this top-line Genesis SE coupe is powered by Hyundai's 24-valve, 3.8-liter Lambda V6, which produces 299 horsepower at 6,300 rpm and delivers 266 pound-feet of torque at 4,700 rpm. A ZF-built 6HP26 six-speed transmission sends the power to the rear wheels.

I Recently purchased my 2009 blue v6 genesis. Wow! This car is awesome. It is a luxury car with some pep. The body lines are impecable. I can't say enough about this vehicle. My husband is a retired General Motors employee and we always bought GM. We saw this baby and just had to take a test drive. Once you get in that car you are hooked. Smooth, quiet ride, all of your accessory buttons are easliy accessible and OMG an ashtray, when was the last time you saw one of those. too bad I am now a non-smoker..lol. I would highly recommend this car for anyone on a budget that wants a good reliable luxury vehicle. I have been interested in adding an automatic start in this car, has anyone else done this?

The new Hyundai Genesis seems nice, but why did Hyundai copy the Sega name? Couldnt they think of something original?
I actually like any car that is different from the same old Toyota and Nissan I am sick of looking at them as there are so many on the road.

Hyundai copying Sega??? I can understand if Sega were producing cars. If that's the case, you can accuse them of raping Gene Roddenberry's idea of "Project Genesis" in "The Wrath of Kahn". If you think about what the word Genesis means, it would seem a very appropriate name for the first iternation of a luxury sedan from the Hyundai stables.

Those were from USA Today, here is how it worked:
USA TODAY assembled 288 adult volunteers in Portland, Ore., and McLean, Va., to measure their reactions to ads that ran during the Super Bowl.
I don't know if that was a representation of the broader audience.
FWIW, I thought "Angry Bosses" ad was hilarious. Advertising Age has a good write up of all of the ads, including car ads like the Hyundai one:

It's 306hp. That was an error on the Edmunds article.
