Interesting that you had an Infiniti G37 Coupe and now considering the Hyundai...probably for the same reasons I was. It's a stunning looking car. While it is more jazzier looking than the G37, I still have reservations about Korean made cars, in terms of reliability and build quality, so I made a "safe" choice and went with a 2012 G37 Coupe instead. Here's what Consumer Reports has to say about the 2011 Hyundai Genesis>>>>> The Genesis Coupe is a very different car from the Genesis sedan. On paper it has a lot of potential, but several flaws prevent it from being a compelling choice. The optional 3.8-liter V6 engine is powerful and sounds great; a noisy turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder is standard. Sporty and agile handling, with responsive steering, makes the Coupe fun to drive. However, the driving experience is let down by an imprecise manual transmission and stiff clutch that requires extra attention to extract smooth shifts. Also, the ride is very stiff and sometimes unsettled. Front seat occupants will find plenty of room, but as in many coupes the rear seat is very cramped

Something else stated in Consumer Reports when I looked at New Vs. Used Hyundai Genesis Coupe (This is a shame, because its one of the sportiest looking coupes on the road) >>> Reliability has been below average, and the Coupe's low owner satisfaction score in our survey is also noteworthy.

I'd love to know if you DO decide to get the Hyundai Genesis Coupe and your thoughts on it. Personally, I'd spend the extra $$ and get the one with the 3.8L V6 which has a little more HP than the IPL version of the Infiniti G37 Coupe (now called the Q60, of course).
