You're right. I skipped that class.

I wouldn't care if the Nissan GTR were called the Nissan BBQ.
People would still go ape**** over it.

You got it. The headlights will look like the E60 ones, except goofier.

I can already feel this is going to have some goofy styling like the current Infiniti M. I think Infiniti have totally lost it.

The problem is, all signs indicate this new "G" or whatever they call it is going to look goofy, and on top of that have a goofy name. A goofy name plus goofy styling is a guaranteed disappointment in the market.

I'd love to be wrong on the styling part, but I have a feeling I won't be. We'll see soon enough.

I'm willing to bet real money it's going to look very close to this render:



Goofy and wavy like the current Infiniti M and the Etherea concept.

That would be unfortunate.

Although the model the OP posted, is not. I see a major sales decline,,,,
That looks terrible. Is this supposed to be a sports car or a VIP car?

Infiniti needs a better engine or a lighter car; the G37 coupe is ridiculously heavy.

Neither. More of a nice daily/GT.

Yes, and hopefully with a turbo or two.

Yup but this 550hp TT V6 they speak of may make up for that if it makes it's way to a coupe

Hmm, don't really like it. More Nissan than Infiniti.

Can we just call it the G37 just to **** Infiniti off? I'm sure if enough people protest in NOT using the "new" names, they won't change it.

More like a refresh. The 3 series can pull that off b/c it's a 3 series. Infinity can't afford to do that.

Interesting.

The key for me will be how it handles, the refinement and the interior.

Looks like the Altima, maxima, Sentra.. I'm sure it will lease well.

Grill now also has mesh. Will await to see in person but very evolutionary which is fine they can't take risks as this is 60-70% of sales.

Horrible name, bring back G.
