There are currently less than 100 Elantra GT N lines in the entire US and only one in my state (Calif). I am in the market for a "warm hatch" and yesterday I drove 225 miles (round trip) to see and test drive this one example. I like the car, but it's not the right color and the dealer gave me a line of BS about it being a "special production item" and each dealer is allocated only two this year. Everyone who knows anything knows the N is a direct replacement for the 2018 GTS, of which there are only 6 remaining examples left within 250 miles of my home. My question is, for those of you who have more experience with Hyundai than I, what the **** kind of a product roll-out is this where they deplete stock on the old model without filling the pipeline for the new one and then refuse to let customers do a factory order? I don't understand how Hyundai expects to sell any of these things if none of their dealers have inventory!
