And, while the coupe itself is not scheduled to join the Volvo range, new reports out of Europe suggest a limited production run could be on the cards.
According to Germany's Autobild, company insiders have confirmed an overwhelmingly positive reaction to the concept, and an investigation into a limited production run is now underway.
The report adds that a decision could come in early 2014, with Italian coachbuilder Bertone understood to be on-board for the project.
As for what would power the model in production form, that remains to be seen.
In concept guise, the Coupe Concept is driven by a 298kW and 600Nm powertrain that combines a turbo- and supercharged 2.0 litre petrol engine with an electric motor.
Volvo says the concept's plug-in hybrid driveline reflects its strategy to use electrification in creating the most powerful versions of its new four-cylinder Drive-E engine family, promising V8 performance.
Packaged into Volvo's new Scaleable Production Architecture (SPA), the Coupe Concept would not seem too wild a prospect for a production future.
For now, only time will tell.
