    Agreed, but in one of the articles its said if they do that, they might lose some of the luster of the N version. Which is telling me the N version might not be close to the 600hp we were hoping for and more likely closer to 500hp.

    Are you sure about that? Nothing from Genesis has indicated the Sport trim with a 5.0 V8, only the 3.3TT. Their press releases talk about the 2018 G80 available with three engine choices overall, but not three for the Sport trim. It looks like the three choices are "regular" G80 with existing 3.8 and 5.0 or a Sport G80 with 3.3TT. No mention of 5.0 or 3.8 with Sport trim or 3.3TT with regular trim.

    Hyundai has an "N" (Nanyang) performance division. It'll have a different name for Genesis vehicles...

    I updated my original post to state:

    EDIT: This information may not be accurate. At least one publication is stating there will be a G80 Sport with a V8 but this has not been confirmed by Genesis.
