Infiniti will launch four-door GT-R in 2011


When it was first announced that the Nissan GT-R would come to the U.S., it was expected to be a part of Nissan’s higher-priced Infiniti brand. Now as rumors about a four-door GT-R are heating up again, AutoExpress is reporting that the family GT-R will be launched in 2011 and will come flying the Infiniti flag.

The future four-door Infiniti GT-R is expected to compete with models like Porsche Panamera and BMW M5 , and it uses the same four-wheel-drive chassis and twin-clutch gearbox as the GT-R coupe.

This is not going to just be a GT-R with a few extra doors. The car will feature a longer wheelbase and will be more oriented on luxury than performance. Gone is the custom built twin-turbo V6. Instead it’s rumored the GT-R sedan will get the less exclusive 5.0-liter V8 from the Infiniti FX50 SUV . It should still be good for 420hp and a 0 to 60 time of about five seconds.

I think that would not be a good idea. A GT-R is a race car, if they will add 2 doors resulting for a 4-dour GT-R, that will add to the weight of the car. If the car is heavy, the chances to win this car in a race will be small. Better change the idea.

Well, I don’t think that they will be building this production! Hell, I don’t want a wider body for the car and it might add to the weight of the vehicle.

Is it true that they are building a four door GTR? I think the Infiniti needs to make the body wider..It might ruined the aggressive look of the car. However, the speed performance is quite good.

Yes, I hope so that they will turn this car into an awesome four door version. However, the figure performance of this concept is kind of impressive. I wonder if it will perform the same with the original.

hmm. Well, there’s nothing wrong of they been planning to make a four door. I’m just afraid that if can make it in the good way. Most probably the car would be in a wider version and unluckily it will ruined the original sleeker version of this car. I prayed that the output with be the same with the Ferrari 458 Italia.

dang it ... GT-R for sedan? well i guess they want to ruin the GT-R’s Reputations does they? but good thing it’s just a render.

wow cool list of cars in a budget!
