2017 Infiniti Q60

The coupe version of the Q50 sedan will be, of course, the Q60. (Illustration above)
(The current Q60 is just the old G37 )

The big news is that it will use Mercedes engines.
At least the 2.0 Liter and the 3.0 Liter Turbo are boing test (By Mercedes) right now.
I wonder if that means goodbye to the old "thirsty but smooth" 3.5 Liter.
(Which is now being used in pretty much every single Infiniti model in the US.)

I am a big fan of the 3.5 Liter. But it IS thirsty.
I also didn't know the partership between Nissan and Mercedes included more than the 2.0 Liter engine and the A/B/CLA/GLA platform...

I guess this will make the Q60 a more direct competitor to the new Mercedes C Class coupe.
But why? Unless it is much cheaper?

just my opinion but infiniti still hasn't captured the essence of the original G coupe. I still am looking forward to seeing this car in production form on the road.

So this turned from Sport Coupe to Luxo Cruiser? That green house reminds me of the 1990s.

Looks great up to the B-pillar, then the whole thing falls apart. It's as if they grafted a modern Infiniti front half onto a late-1970s Toyota Carina rear half! Very disappointing.. nothing will ever match the design purity of the first generation.
