Good news, everyone: you can now buy a Hyundai Scoupe on Autotrader. After a long period where there were no Scoupe models listed for sale on Autotrader in the entire country, this one has popped up at New Deal Pre-Owned Autos in the Phoenix suburb of Glendale, Arizona. It’s a mere $2,200. Someone should rescue it. See the 1994 Hyundai Scoupe models for sale near you
I say this because the Hyundai Scoupe was Hyundai’s first attempt to be sporty, and it really should be a show piece in any top Hyundai collection. This car predated the Tiburon, Hyundai’s second attempt to be sporty, and I’ve written about it before: The name is a combination of “S” and “Coupe,” and it was pronounced “scoop” in the United States and “S – coupe” in the U.K., with three syllables if you accent the final “e” in “coupe.”
As I mentioned in that piece, the Scoupe was sold here in the United States from 1991 to 1995, meaning the one at New Deal Pre-Owned Autos is from the second-to-last year, making it highly prized. Unfortunately, this Scoupe doesn’t appear to be the turbocharged model, which means it has just 92 horsepower. I said it was Hyundai’s “attempt” to be sporty, but I didn’t mention whether they succeeded.
This particular Scoupe is, honestly, in pretty nice shape, with just 107,000 miles. It’s saddled with an automatic transmission, but even a stick shift probably didn’t really bring out the driving pleasure in this early-1990s Hyundai. According to its Carfax report, it has spent its entire life in Arizona, which is the perfect climate for preserving cars — meaning this Scoupe may still have years of enjoyment left to deliver to its next lucky owner.
