Default Infiniti M Concept



Am I the only one that feels that the new Infiniti M concept shown at the Detriot Auto Show looks like a TL?

It looks like a G35 on steroids. It'll also eat the G's lunch

Did you know that the new M will be available as a coupe and a convertible shortly?

No, I haven't seen that posted yet.

I do like the M45's V8 goodness however.

That perked up my ears. Where did you hear that at? A M45 coupe just might convince me to trade up.

A birdie at the dealership whispered in my ear.

No offense Jay, but I'm a bit skeptical. Dealerships have been known to spread false rumors before. Has there been any official news about this? With all the publicity around the M, wouldn't there be?

I guess it could be a competitor to the 6-series, but it doesn't seem like a very big market to challenge. It probably wouldn't be a very smart move on Nissan's part until they're more firmly entrenched.

There was a thread posted awhile back with a pic of the potential M45 coupe -- which I liked very much, but it was pre-upgrade on the forum, so I can't find it :(

I went to the auto show yesterday. And surprisingly, you can sit in them. I sat in the M35. The interior is naaaaaiiiice. I personally think the whole car has better proportions than the G. If only I can shrink it to the G's size.

Speaking of convertibles, I'm surprised to not have heard about any G35 convertibles.

After the M series is released they will be putting out the M coupe and then a year later they will be unveiling the M convertible.

As for the G35 becoming convertible, it will never happen due to the GTR's upcoming release. Instead, they will save the convertible for the M series, luxury.
