I'm still skeptical cuz the media/press day is not until the end of March... I figure they would have that first before the release date... but I guess it just depends. My reasoning is why would they hold a special track type media day, spend all that money, when these magazines could go get a car a month before and do it on their own and get a review before anyone else.. To me that doesn't make sense..

Actually the end of Feb/beginning of March sounds about right. Hyundai's four US parts warehouses have begun to receive stock of some of the maintenance items for the Coupe (air filters, brake pads, etc). Being as impatient as I am about it, I checked some of the other parts as well (mostly crash parts) and the warehouses show an ETA of early to mid February. Judging by the timeframe of past new vehicle debuts, that would put the car mostly likely starting to hit the lots around the beginning of March.

Sabbasaun, most of the time it will take weeks before dealers all over the US see the cars. When we first heard of the Genesis sedans arriving in California, it took an additional month or so before we saw any of ours arrive. This may be the reason for the late March press day. Just a guess tho...

The original release date for the coupe was last week of Feb/1st week of March, but since then, KDM had a strike that put them behind. Now I've been working for a Hyundai dealership for over 10yrs watching thier cars arrive almost always 1 month behind the scheduled release date. So, if we add the additional time for the strike & the extra month it always takes Hyundai to get the cars to the dealerships to the original 1st week of March date, we are looking at end of April. I hope I'm wrong, but I doubt it. I'm just saying don't get your hopes up.

Thanks for the info DD, it's appreciated. I have tried to get official word from Hyundai but no word yet but at least the dealers are seeing some movement, which tells us that they are at least getting ready for the car. :clap: I just hate the waitin although the extra time let's me get my trucked fixed and as soon as its fixed Its going up for sale and I'm using that as my downpayment.

I have access to some of the sales department's reports (I don't think they realize I do tho... shhh...LOL). One of those reports is a preliminary allocation of all of the different models to our regional dealerships, total units available for allocation, etc. The Genesis Coupe and the Elantra Touring are both on the list but have been showing zero available units. The report comes out every two weeks and I have been keeping a close eye on it. As soon as I see ANY other number in that Coupe column that isn't a zero, I'll let you know.

Nothing like having access to information, right?

Just wait a little longer, the cars are already here in the States! :)

I wonder if they will still sell the ones that are already at the U.S. ports if the workers go on strike in Korea?
yeah good question, I think they will have to, especially since all the hype around them, and the Super Bowl. What I fear is the dealers trying to mark them up because of the supply shortage..
