Hyundai will release a mid-engined sports car to compete with Porsche


The head of the sports sub-brand, Hyundai N albert Biermann has confirmed the development mid-engined sports car that can compete with Porsche. Boss N-division said that it was “the right time to release such a vehicle,” but declined to share details.

The head of the N division of Hyundai has made it clear that the leadership of the Korean group does not limit the imagination of engineers of the technical or financial scope, but the finished product “should be priced reasonably relative to its competitors”.


Probably mid-engined sports car Hyundai is an independent model with rear wheel drive and a two-seater coupé. However, Biermann stated that “transmission of the new items may be slightly different” from the usual architecture of the Porsche. Probably, the basis driverstore coupe will take a 300-horsepower prototype RM16 N with an electronically limited slip differential, composite bodywork and active aerodynamics.

The short novelty special Hyundai N will be the serial production of the hot-hatch i30 N with 8-speed robotized gearbox with double clutch. In addition, in 2020, the Korean firm promises to start selling the 600 i30 hatchbacks extreme N Project C with a lightweight body.
