I hope so! I've always loved the G lineup.

This is a worse idea than when Acura renamed the Legend to RL! We all know how that worked out

I could care less about the naming scheme. What excites me is word of a 3.0 V6 Twin Turbo motor being offered.

That concave grille just gives such an impression of meekness, as if the car has no problem moving out of the way for you - contrast to any grille with straight lines that projects a more confident look.

I agree with you. The G35 saved Infiniti and they do the disservice of killing off its name with 2 generations behind it. I'm really hoping the back seats of the new IS350 are serviceable....i think it may look a lot better than the new Q...

Don't you just love competition? Those two are going to define the entry luxury class. Ok I am going on a rant here but I never understood people going for 3 or C-class over IS and G. Rant done

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.
