I don't know what they can do to prevent production mishaps, but lets just remain hopeful that they can stay on top of it. If they can keep the VN in supply at dealers, I think its well positioned to take a lot of market share from current hot hatches on the market.

Safe to say we got the hint after learning that some very common parts and components have found their way into the Veloster N on top of it being relatively mono-spec by nature.

Glad to hear it, but I suspect that models available directly from the dealer will still be fairly limited. I would guess that they'll only be getting a handful of units for launch and the rest will be an on order basis.

From launch there will be many built for the fact they know what will be sold and have many months ahead to move them, I'll be surprised if they do get limited.

The number that a specific dealership gets on initial delivery will vary quite a bit, so it may take some shopping around to find one in the color/spec that you want. At least there is just the one package that you need to consider.

Hyundai Vice President of Product Planning, Mike O'Brien went on record at the LA Auto Show to discuss the upcoming release of the Veloster N. He reiterated that this wont be a limited production run and that they will be doing their best to meet all market demands. Hopefully this means that we wont be seeing any big dealer markups. https://carbuzz.com/news/hyundai-assures-us-the-veloster-n-won-t-be-limited-production
Things will get better once the DCT version is offered in a year.

100% agree. They have really limited their consumer base by going with a monospec configuration, but I can understand that decision for launch.

I'm actually happy with the N being limited to manual for release. It seems that there shouldn't be as many in the road. Probably also means the customer base should be in more of the over 40 enthusiast group. They definitely need to release an automatic down the road, just to keep the sales up enough to extend the life of the N production line. But I'm happy with the idea of less of them on the road to start.
