The Hyundai Genesis Coupe is no longer – the two-door, rear-wheel-drive coupe’s 2016 model year will be its last before a replacement comes along in 2017, according to The Truth About Cars; however, it won’t carry the Hyundai badge as Genesis is now its own sub-brand. Theoretically a rival to the likes of the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro, it stood in a rather more distinct place in the market.

“A new, more sophisticated and luxurious coupe appropriate for the new Genesis brand is currently under development,” said Christine Henley, PR manager for Hyundai Motor America, after confirming the discontinuation. The Genesis Coupe shared a platform with the car formerly known as the Genesis sedan, which has since become the Genesis G80.

While the aforementioned replacement coupe is its direct successor, there will also be a high-performance variant of the Genesis G80 forthcoming, which has been spied testing. Thus far, Genesis had confirmed that it will have six models in its lineup; the G80, G90 and G70 which make up the three sedans, in addition to a pair of SUVs. This bit of news confirms the sixth model to be a coupe.
