Can you still factory order a Gen Coupe?

As the Title says. More of a curiosity thing.

IMO, They shouldn't have discontinued the coupe, especially when they don't have another vehicle in the coupe class right now.

At the least, I feel they should have kept the BK II going with minor changes. Take the new Safety additions (lane departure, park assist, adaptive cruise control, brake assist, or whatever isn't on the BKII) and Entertainment upgrades from the Sonata (android auto, apple carplay)

What's everyone elses opinion? I mean, would it really have cost that much to do the minor changes? I feel they'd still sell the coupes!!

I don't know if you can order one. I got mine back in October and there were some available, but not all options. I had to go with my 2nd choice color....

Stoked that I was able to get one before they were gone. It was the only car available that checked most of the boxes on my list - Coupe w/ at least some back seat / trunk space, under $30k, RWD, manual, good power, good handling, good brakes, nice interior, available aftermarket parts, etc.

I had mixed feelings about the fact that it was the last of the Gen Coupes.

Cool that I was able to get one and being the last of the line, hopefully, most of the bugs have been sorted out. I like that it is not as common as some of the other options in this class. It is a little scary in terms of aftermarket parts availability and depreciation.

I would hope they come up with a suitable replacement, but we are at the mercy of the market.

Well, 100% At least you know by now all the kinks/bugs were ironed out if you're getting the last of the batch! Except that airbag wire recall under passenger seat, lol.

I think 2016 was it for the Gen Coupe. If there are any left I would think they would be marking them down and moving them off the lot.

lol do you really think they took the time to "iron out the kinks" on a car that was being discontinued? Nah.
