good choice! :) Would have been a steal even for 30k OTD, if they were willing to go that far.

I can't believe VA sales tax is only 3%! That's crazy...
I could have gotten them down to 30k OTD I'm sure, but it's the principle. This car has been out for 18 months, and I firmly believe that the 2011s are just around the corner. They will be selling these cars at a loss, soon enough, just to get rid of them. I'm not going to pay current price for an old model. Sorry. :dunno:

Yes, but VA has annual property tax on their cars. It definitely adds a lot to the total cost of ownership.
ok, that's officially kinda f-ked up. Property tax on cars? lol. How many percent?

Here you go:

Outside of adding the new 3.8 R-Spec model, Hyundai has made some other changes to the 2011 Genesis Coupe to update the interior. 2011 models will now get new metal grain accents on the center stack, vents, door handles and steering wheel as well as new soft-touch materials on the door panels, glove box and lower dashboard. The steering wheel is now wrapped in a softer leather while the A-pillars are wrapped in cloth. A chrome surround for the automatic transmission shifter will match the new chrome knobs on the center stack and the new chrome accent rings on the gauge cluster. Hyundai finishes it off with new rear coat hooks, a grab handle on the trunk lid and enhanced graphics for the multi-information display on the dash.

As of this writing, pricing for 2011 models, including the new R-Spec model, hasn't been announced. Given how new the model is, Genesis Coupe prices aren't expected to climb much, if at all. The 3.8 R-Spec is expected to mimic the 2.0T R-Spec in slotting between the base 3.8 and the 3.8 Grand Touring and based on the price differential between the 2.0T models, the 3.8 R-Spec will likely start at about $30,000. We'll keep you updated as we learn more from Hyundai.

According to The Car Connection:

The Car Connection said:
...The 2011 model pushes the car even further toward the luxury realm, with improved soft-touch, matte-finish surfaces on the doors, dash, and glove box, plus new "metalgrain" accents on the center stack, door handles, vents, and steering wheel, padded door arm rests, a more "premium" steering wheel leather, an improved multi-information display screen, and a host of other small interior tweaks.

Also new for 2011 is the 3.8 R-Spec model, satisfying those that want a V-6 instead of the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that was the only R-Spec option last year. Navigation and automatic temperature control are now standard on the 2.0T Premium model as well.

The new Genesis Coupe lineup consists of six models: the 2.0T, 2.0T Premium, 2.0T R-Spec, 3.8 Grand Touring, 3.8 Track, and 3.8 R-Spec. The 2010 lineup models that are dropped for 2011 are the 3.8 base model, and 2.0T Track.

well, i guess they found that people who wanted premium + performance mostly went for 3.8's, while those that wanted pure performance at low cost mostly went for base 2.0 or r-spec.

dropping the 3.8 base seems a bit weird, but i guess that matches up with the canadian lineup, where the 3.8 is all about luxury.

For the record, Pure Adrenaline had told us about these changes awhile ago, so his reliability as an insider source is confirmed.

2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe Preview
The Carconnection
Source: MotorAuthority.com

Anyone that's familiar with Hyundai's work over the past few years knows that the stylized 'H' on the grille no longer stands for "heap." In fact, several of Hyundai's vehicles are giving top-tier luxury manufacturers a run for their money, and that's before the 2011 Equus even hits the streets. The Genesis Coupe is another of the brand's cars that proves performance and luxury can be found at many price points.

Sure, it's not a BMW M3. No one's saying it is. But considering it runs with the Infiniti G37 Coupe, Ford Mustang, and Chevrolet Camaro in terms of performance while delivering near-luxury interior accommodations (in the higher trim levels), it's a performance/luxury bargain that can be had fully loaded in 3.8 Track trim for just over $30,000.

The 2011 model pushes the car even further toward the luxury realm, with improved soft-touch, matte-finish surfaces on the doors, dash, and glove box, plus new "metalgrain" accents on the center stack, door handles, vents, and steering wheel, padded door arm rests, a more "premium" steering wheel leather, an improved multi-information display screen, and a host of other small interior tweaks.

Also new for 2011 is the 3.8 R-Spec model, satisfying those that want a V-6 instead of the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that was the only R-Spec option last year. Navigation and automatic temperature control are now standard on the 2.0T Premium model as well.

The new Genesis Coupe lineup consists of six models: the 2.0T, 2.0T Premium, 2.0T R-Spec, 3.8 Grand Touring, 3.8 Track, and 3.8 R-Spec. The 2010 lineup models that are dropped for 2011 are the 3.8 base model, and 2.0T Track.

Full release:

2011 HYUNDAI GENESIS COUPE
Interior Refinements and New 3.8 R-Spec Enhance Genesis Coupe Lineup

Lineup
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., July 15, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — Fresh off its inaugural year in which it thumped the likes of G37, Mustang, Camaro, and Challenger in various comparison test shoot-outs while leading all competitors in residual value, Hyundai’s Genesis Coupe is back for 2011 with interior updates, a revised lineup, and its hottest model ever, the 3.8 R-Spec.

2011 GENESIS COUPE HIGHLIGHTS
• Interior refinements
• New soft-touch, matte-finish surfaces on door panels, center speaker grille, glove box, and lower instrument panel
• New dark metalgrain accents on center stack, door handles, air vent register bezels and steering wheel trim
• Padded door armrests
• Softer, premium steering wheel leather
• Cloth-wrapped A-pillars
• Chrome finish for A/T shift gate bezel and center stack control knobs
• Chrome finish gauge cluster rings
• Rear coat hooks
• Trunk deck lid grab handle
• Enhanced multi-information display screen graphics
• 3.8 R-Spec model added
• Navigation with Fully Automatic Temperature Control now standard on Genesis Coupe 2.0T Premium
• Revised model lineup featuring six flavors of Genesis Coupe: 2.0T, 2.0T Premium, 2.0T R-Spec, 3.8 R-Spec, 3.8 Grand Touring, 3.8 Track

INTERIOR DESIGN
For 2011, Genesis Coupe features several interior upgrades that reflect Hyundai’s commitment to craftsmanship and high-quality materials. The instrument panel is crafted in a seamless, soft-touch skin fully encompassing new dark metalgrain trim. Softer leather now wraps the steering wheel and padding has been added to the door armrests for increased comfort. The A-pillars are now covered in a premium fabric to match the roof liner. New information screen graphics enhance appearance and readability and the finish of the controls has also been enhanced.

“The interior upgrades, our hot new 3.8 R-Spec model, and revised lineup of six focused models show that Hyundai is meeting the demands of our customers,” said Scott Margason, director, product planning, Hyundai Motor America. “The upgraded interior is a great illustration of how Hyundai continually raises its own high benchmarks for quality.”

2011 Genesis Coupe
The 2011 Genesis Coupe is a purpose-built rear-wheel drive sport coupe featuring two performance-focused engines – a 210-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and a range-topping all-aluminum, 306-horsepower, DOHC 3.8-liter V6 engine.

GENESIS COUPE HIGHLIGHTS
• 306-horsepower from enhanced 3.8-liter V6 from Genesis sedan
• 210-horsepower turbocharged, intercooled inline four cylinder
• Platform-mate and sinister sibling of the Car of the Year-winning

POWERTRAINS
Two engines infuse Genesis Coupe with performance. The 3.8-liter Lambda DOHC V6 engine delivers 306-horsepower and 266 lb.-ft. of torque on regular unleaded. This engine will launch the Genesis Coupe from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 5.5 seconds. To maximize the power band, the 3.8-liter engine utilizes DCVVT and a new Variable Intake System (VIS) that helps cylinders breathe more efficiently at both low and high RPM. The better-breathing results in outstanding off-the-line acceleration, passing performance and remarkable fuel efficiency. The V6 engine uses an alloy block and cylinder heads for lighter weight and thermal efficiency and features durable timing chains with no scheduled maintenance.

The turbocharged, intercooled 2.0-liter DOHC inline four-cylinder benefits from Dual CVVT on both the intake and exhaust camshafts. The 2.0-liter turbo generates 210-horsepower and 223 lb.-ft. of torque. It also features a cast-aluminum cylinder block and cylinder head. Both engines feature a free-flowing dual cat-back exhaust and an available Torsen® limited-slip differential to put the power to the ground.

SPORT-TUNED SUSPENSION
Genesis Coupe employs a MacPherson® strut dual-link front suspension and a five-link independent rear suspension setup.The front suspension is mounted to the body via a solid subframe which is lighter and stronger than a multi-piece component would be. To help reduce body roll and tune the Genesis Coupe’s at-the-limit handling for maximum predictability, 24-mm diameter front and 19-mm diameter rear stabilizer bars are used.

While all Genesis Coupe models offer a sporty and involving driving experience, the high-performance Genesis Coupe R-Spec and 3.8 Track models are the most willing partners for the true enthusiast. The track-tuned suspension features a stiffer front spring rate, stiffer rear spring rate and unique shock valving. The Genesis Coupe R-Spec and 3.8 Track models deliver a substantial increase in roll control over standard versions of the Genesis Coupe. Superb structural rigidity sets the foundation for precisely-tuned handling performance in all Genesis Coupes.

TRANSMISSIONS
Both engines are mated to a standard six-speed manual transmission. The Genesis Coupe 2.0T offers an optional five-speed automatic with SHIFTRONIC® while the 3.8-liter V6 offers a ZF® six-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC to handle the additional torque. Both automatic transmissions feature steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

HIGH PERFORMANCE BRAKING SYSTEMS
Brembo four-piston calipers clamp down on 13.4-inch ventilated front brake rotors and 13-inch ventilated rear rotors on R-Spec and 3.8 Track models. All other models get substantial 12.6-inch front ventilated rotors and 12.4-inch rotors in the rear with floating single-piston calipers.

INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES
The 2011 Genesis Coupe 3.8 Track offers Xenon high-intensity discharge (HID) headlights. The advantages of HID headlamps include greater lighting power, daylight-type lighting and reduced power consumption.

Music lovers will welcome the 2011 Genesis Coupe’s standard auxiliary input jacks (3.5 mm mini-jack and USB input) to accommodate and charge audio devices such as iPods®. There is an optional in-dash navigation unit with a multi-gauge information display screen. This system provides new features including Bluetooth streaming audio capability. This easy-to-use unit can be controlled via 6.5-inch WVGA touchscreen or voice-recognition by headliner-mounted microphone.

SEGMENT-LEADING SAFETY TECHNOLOGIES
In keeping with Hyundai’s focus on offering segment-leading standard safety technologies across its lineup, the 2011 Genesis Coupe includes a wide range of both active and passive safety features... [text deleted for word limit]

WEIGHT EFFICIENCY
“One of the program targets for the Genesis engineering team was world-class weight efficiency,” Margason said... [text deleted]

Both Genesis Coupe and sedan are rich in ultra-high-strength steel, leading to world-class body rigidity. The Genesis sedan is 10-12 percent stiffer in torsion than its Lexus and Mercedes-Benz competitors, yet it is lighter than these benchmark sedans, and offers more interior room. At just 3,294 pounds, the Genesis Coupe 2.0T is hundreds of pounds lighter than all of its IRS-equipped rear-wheel drive competitors, with body-bending rigidity 24 percent higher than the BMW E46 M3.

This focus on weight efficiency pays dividends across the board... [text deleted]
