naias 2016 2017 infiniti q60 the g37 is finally dead

After keeping the G37 Coupe on life support past its sell-by date, the Q60 two-door sport coupe is finally getting a complete overhaul for 2017.

Just one question: How many hundreds of horsepower do you want? 200? 300? 400?

The new Infiniti Q60 closely follows its Q50 sedan counterpart, with a grille that would make a beluga blush and headlights seemingly pulled from any other Infiniti.

Under the hood is a choice of two engines in three different tunes. If you’re strictly interested in the “show” and none of the “go,” you can equip your Q60 with the same 208 horsepower, 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that does duty in the Infiniti Q30 QX30. A 3-liter twin-turbocharged V-6, dubbed VR30, will too be offered, in tunes of 300 horsepower and 295 lbs-ft of torque or 400 horsepower and 350 lbs-ft of torque.

Keeping everything in check is Infiniti’s new Dynamic Digital Suspension and Direct Adaptive Steering.

The Infiniti Q60 sport coupe goes on sale later this year. No pricing was announced.

    I'm a mark for the G37 coupe, and I think this looks like a natural evolution of the current car. Overall I think it's very attractive. Though I hate the awful kink and the fake fender vents.

      ...totally agree with your assessment... tho, at least it's not as bad (to me) as the dippity-do on the Genesis coupe's rear quarter window...

    I liked the idea of the trickle down old model method over the current car method. Kind of like Apple, this gens top model becomes next gens lower tier model. I mean, would you rather have had a G37 or a modernized G20 as an entry level car?

  • Tassos The EQS is the best looking BEV, better than even the only Tesla I would ever consider (the S) and more luxurious inside etc etcThe self driving features will come in handy when I'm 110 and my eyesight and reaction times start to suffer.But that's four decades away, and only Tim recommends 40 year old "used cars"

  • Tassos The fugly looks of any Subaru, and especially the non-sporty non-elegant, fugly, low-rent looks and interior of the WRX are alone a sufficient turnoff to never want to own one.One can be a 100% car enthusiast but ALSO demand a beautiful AND luxurious vehicle one can be truly proud of and which makes one very happy every time one drives it.The above is obviously totally foreign to Subaru Designers and managers.Αnd who cares if they sell all they make? this is 100% worthless bragging, since they hardly make ANY. ALL of Subaru's models together, all dozen of them, sell less than the top selling Toyota or Honda or even Tesla sells. ANd furthermore, if you have the intellectual horsepower to understand it, bulldude, which I am 99% sure you sure as hell do not, it is NOT about the sales units, it is not even about the sales revenue.It is all about the P R O F I T S.Am I going slow enough for you, bulldude?
