Not one, but two turbocharged cars from an OE? Yes, please.

Hyundai got us plenty excited with their Veloster concepts and RM500 Genesis at the 2011 SEMA Show. But what really caught our attention was when Hyundai Motor America CEO, John Krafcik announced that the Veloster would come to the showrooms this year in a new Turbo version—albeit, this was a simple reminder after posting the news on Twitter shortly before the press conference.

The Turbo Veloster will receive Hyundai’s new 1.6L T-GDI setup, a turbocharged (duh) direct injection engine that produces 208hp. While pricing hasn’t been announced as of press time, we hope it won’t stray too far from the base model. Hyundai also says their next update to the turbocharged Genesis Coupe rhymes with “more horsepower”, which is always great news to us. Not one, but two turbocharged cars from an OE? Yes, please.

Cars like this 1996 Civic Type R EK9 are commonly found among the most desired by Honda fans old and young. Sure, it doesn’t carry the dramatic appeal of, say, the original NSX – a car that carries a legion of fans not only enamored with Hondas but car enthusiasts of all types – and

Super Street: It didn’t even make any sense back in 1999 when Honda announced that its S2000 was on its way to dealerships. Knee-deep in all things Honda during an era when the 5th gen. Civic, a monumental hit for Honda’s aftermarket hungry fans was just being followed up by the 6th generation Civic –

From the Editors at SS: It may be from the ‘80s, and never offered in America, and look a little goofy with its ride height hiked up the way it is, but all of that belies the sports car athlete that is the midengined, turbo four-banger, AWD RS200. Made so Ford could go rally racing
