Infiniti Teases Q60 Coupe Concept

Detroit show car a “foreshadowing” of production model to come.

Infiniti's new Q60 Concept will make its debut at the Detroit Auto Show next month.

Despite a few classic show car details, like the microscopic sideview mirrors, we’re likely to be seeing the new Infiniti Q60 Concept again in the not too distant future as the planned replacement for the Japanese maker’s current Q60.

Infiniti is giving us a first teaser glimpse of the Q60 Concept which will make its debut at the Detroit Auto Show next month and, the automaker suggests, it “builds upon the design language seen on recent Infiniti concept cars,” notably the Q80 Inspiration that was unveiled at the recent Paris Motor Show.


The current coupe is clearly in need of an update; it’s basically little more than a rebadged version of Infiniti’s old G37 Coupe which has seen little change since its introduction in 2008. But the image Infiniti released this morning is yet another indication of the distinctive styling themes in store as it sets out to greatly expand its line-up.


Infiniti To Launch New Q50 in Detroit

Replacement for G Sedan first to adopt new naming strategy.

Infiniti will reveal the rest of the new Q50 at Detroit's Cobo Center next week.

With a performance by the celebrated Cirque du Soleil to kick things off, Infiniti will reveal the first model launched under its all-new naming strategy – and its newly aggressive global growth plans – when it unveils the Q50 sedan at the Detroit Auto Show next week.

The replacement for the aging, though still popular G-series sedan will be loosely based on the Infiniti Emerg-E concept shown last year.  Significantly, the 2014 Infiniti Q50 will be the first of the maker’s products to be developed as part of a rapidly expanding joint venture between Nissan, Renault and new alliance partner Daimler AG, the parent of Mercedes-Benz.

The Infiniti brand has been undergoing massive change as Nissan struggles to build it into a true tier-one luxury marque.  Infiniti has gotten its own design and engineering resources, a new headquarters in Hong Kong and a new approach to naming its products developed by new CEO Johan de Nysschen, the former head of Audi’s North American operations.


First Drive: Infiniti G37Xs

Hail to the victors valiant.

by on Sep.19, 2011

Infiniti's G37Xs is a pony car with luxury retirement.

Road trips are usually undertaken in roomy sedans or crossover SUVs. One would not normally select a sports coupe for a 250-mile slog from Chicago to Ann Arbor, Michigan, but then, one normally doesn’t have tickets to see one of college football’s best rivalries being played under the lights during the first night game at Michigan Stadium.

The G37Xs coupe is an interesting work of two-door art, with fender bulges and sleek, swoopy lines. It’s a pony car in tailored duds—the back seat is useless for adults, the trunk on the smallish side—complete with a snarling V-6. Upscale trim defines the interior, and our car had plenty of bells and whistles on board.

Insightful Reviews!

We reviewed the G37Xs sedan earlier this summer, and now it’s the coupe’s turn. We spent plenty of time in the car, both in urban settings and on the highway.

The 330-horsepower 3.7-liter V-6 provides plenty of punch, snapping heads back off the line — this despite the added weight of all-wheel-drive. The 7-speed automatic shifts a bit crisply for our taste, but those who prefer some old-school rough-and-tumble might appreciate it.
