Camaro, Mustang, and Challenger all heavily incorporate retro designs so much much different than the Genesis.
I personally like both types of styling.
By the way, I think the Genesis Coupe has a much more attractive profile than the Infiniti G Coupe.

On our way to Charlotte, going around Jacksonville Florida, I passed a sensational looking coupe...I slowed to its speed, to try to figure out just what it was!! Lo and Behold, it was a Genesis Coupe.!! Absolutely beautiful...no idea what engine, but it DID have stick shift.
This was 2 months ago.

This car is a beauty.........who ever said they would take a mustang over this is NUTS!!! A mustang, only good in straight line, poorly built, still reminiscing of days of old. These north american car makers need to look forward not backwards. Something new and fresh. That is why they are in the pickle they are in. GM started to get it right look at the CTS-V, only problem is that it is too little too late.
#23 of 29 If it looks like a Tiburon...

It may not be the replacement for the Tiburon, but we now know what the Tiburon design team has been working on. Exterior styling looks very similar, at least in the photos, and looking like a Tiburon is not a compliment.

and it was a '65, loved the car and still love the simple, sporty style. Ford has modernized the Stang and it looks good, but Hyundai has topped the already-sporty looking Tibby with this Genesis Coupe.
Hey, I read an article on the Genesis Coupe about 3 or 4 months ago in one of the car mags. They mentioned the Coupe, fairly-well equipped with the stick was gonna start at $19,995. Is this still true? And is that manual tranny a 5-speed or 6-speed? This car is hotter than a firecracker. That price is unbelievable, too, if true.
The only thing I'd be trying to figure out now if I wanted a Coupe was whether I wanted the Hyundai Coupe or the hot new Kia Koup coming out later this year. Both look awesome, just different than each other. I have a strong feeling that Kia's Koup will be priced very close to the Genesis Coupe.

We'll get to see the Kia Forte very soon at the upcoming Chicago Auto Show, which is be the sedan version to the upcoming Koup.
#26 of 29 The new Spectra/Forte looks so good...
Feb 02, 2009 (5:37 pm)
and the Koup concept was looking so good earlier. They were talking about a turbobooster in a 4-cyl motor for the Kia Koup, as I recall, too.
The selection of the 6-speed over the 5-speed rocks da house, too.
Great new sporty Coupe's from H/K!

i personally liked the last version of G37, all the lines on the body were so sleek . but the G37 has all the fugly creases, even they just chopped the tail light that used to run on the rear fender. This genesis coupe, I havent seen in person yet, looks pretty much like G37 except the fact that it's at least more attractive looking than G37 on the photos. is there anyone that already bought this vehicle? is there is any, can you comment on the performance

Sticker for a base turbo-4 with a 6-manual should be $22kish with freight and all. Just got a base V6 auto in and it stickered at $27k.
The sweet car is going to be the turbo-4 track model. IMO.
The V6 has loads of power, but the max torque is around 4500, where the 4 banger gets all of its power by 2000. Seems like the 4 will be an excellent driver.
Must say though, don't go looking at a coupe expecting the same interior quality as a Genesis sedan. The interior isn't bad (see "Tiburon"), it just isn't like the sedan (see "Lexus").
