I thought there was at least a thread or two on the Coupe but I can't find them now. Anyway, thanks for the setup.

Here is the domestic market ad, which is arriving into showroom this week:

    I know it's a long way off, as the current football season is only 2 weeks old (about to be 3), but Hyundai is expected to show another series of ads during the next Superbowl. This time, instead of the Genesis sedan, it'd be the coupe's turn, with the product expected to appearing in US showroom around the same timeframe.

  • I think we were kind of combining the Genesis sedan and Coupe threads together for a while there. I thought there was a Genesis Coupe thread already, too. Wow, that HKS-tuned Genesis Coupe looks hot!

    The car is officially launched in Korea last week.

    While the car will be a bargain in the States, the fully load V6 model
    costs more than $35K in Korea before tax.

    Tirerack.com now has the Genesis Coupe listed. You can check out the available tires to upgrade from the OEM's.

    Anyone else notice the paddle shifters for the V6? Or the 223 lb/ft at 2K RPM on the Turbo?

    I thought that would be a great feature to include, but I never thought HMA would do it. Sounds like they are serious about this car.

    If it is as solid a coupe as the sedan is a, uh, sedan, then I think that this is going to be a real treat!!

  • Back in May 08 MotorTrend article a spokesman for the company claims Hyundai is committed to selling the lowest priced 300 hp rear drive car in the US. With an est price of $25K.

    Looks like they have some work to do to make that goal as the 2010 LS Camaro with 300 hp will start at $22,995.

    The balls in your court Hyundai, now bring that price down for me.. :)

    Assuming of course GM survives long enough to launch it.

    Hope I am wrong but probably not going to happen.

    Actually, at the time when Hyundai said the Genesis coupe would be the most inexpensive 300hp coupe, they were absolutely correct. There would have been no way for them to anticipate the future (ie. Camaro pricing)

  • I think GM will survive just fine with the new prez wanting to create and save jobs in a couple of weeks. Sure it may take an extra $125 billion or so to do it... But, what's the price of staving off a Depression?

    The Camaro will be out about the same time as the G-coupe in a few months.
    I wouldn't be surprised to see the Camaro selling for $21K after a $2K rebate later in 09...

    I can't wait to see how Hyundai handles 09 pricing after the initial excitement wears off.

    My Azera lease expires in April. Anyone know when the Coupe will arrive?

  • joe97joe97 Posts: 2,248
    Hyundai says it arrives into showroom this month.

    "Hyundai says it arrives into showroom this month."

    Thanks. Will be interesting to see what the dealers do in terms of "Market Adjustment" price additions.

    The Hyundai coupe is starting to sound like a big hyped up yawn to me for $30K.
    When you can get a top rated Nissan sport coupe like the 370Z at the same price and does zero to 60 in 4.8 seconds. Plus looks excellent.

    Or a Subaru WRX for $25K, zero to 60 in 4.7

    Or the Camaro for even less than $25K

    I'm a little disappointed with Hyundai's price and effort.

    When you compare apple to apple in terms of features, the Z still comes out thousands above the Gen Coupe. The Z should be faster for a two seater,

    Still, the closest competitor of the Genesis Coupe is the G37 Coupe.

    Anyway, I have no problem with the Genesis coupe, in terms of the price and the effort. The base I4 turbo and the V6 are both priced attractively, and the car itself a very very good first effort from Hyundai and another excellent product from the Korean automaker.

  • do some research before you post.

    similarly equipped 370z will be about 7 grand more and it's only seats two.

    WRX does not run 4.7 0-60. STI does, but again, similarly equipped STI will be near 40k and the new design is butt ugly.

    camaro is the only viable option, but not everyone likes the retro look.

    and every magazines posted sub 6 seconds except edmunds.

  • anyway, gen coupe will be all about modding the 4 banger turbo. it will out sell V6 3 to 1.

    Pleeze wolverine, don't be an idiot.
    Nobody wants a nice $30K car with a 4 banger turbo that they have to modify because it comes with a weak turbo eng...lol

    People want a hot V-6 that compares to the rest...geez

  • joe97joe97 Posts: 2,248
    The base turbo 4 starts at 22K (plus 750 DPH), and I don't think it comes even close of reaching 30K. Later this year, Hyundai will roll out the R-Spec, which is intended to be the ultimate canvas for enthuaists and tuners.

    How is the turbo 4 engine weak?

    Or... they want a lighter 4cyl that they can modify for the track.

    Then for $40K, the G37 must be a real bore since it's only 2/10ths of a second quicker than the 3.8 GenCoupe - lol.
