Infiniti revealed today a new image of the 2009 G37 Convertible that will make its world debut in November at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Based on the current G37 Coupe, the new G37 Convertible will feature a three-piece automatic retracting hardtop. The Infiniti G37 Convertible is expected to be powered by the same 328 hp 3.7-liter V6 engine that is in the coupe version and possible 7-speed automatic transmission.
Infiniti will increase its pricing on the 2009 G37 coupe. Compared to the 2008 model year , most increases are about $1000. Pricing are as follows: the standard G37 coupe is now $35,900 (up from $34,900 in 2008), G37x AWD is $38,700, G37 coupe in Journey trim is $36,650 (up from $35,650 in 2008) and the G37S in 6MT trim is priced at $37,000 (up from $36,200).
Infiniti believes that with these increased prices there is also increased value. Highway mpg goes from 24 mpg to 26 on 2009 rear wheel drive models. A new color "Moonlight white" is added to replace ivory pearl. Also, for an extra $130, 2009 models have an optional glass breakage sensor.
So, you can go to the dealer now and get a 2008 model, or pay $1000 more and wait and for a 2009 model with better fuel economy and new options.

Infiniti, Europe’s newest premium car brand, has launched an internet based ‘reservation list’ in response to demand from customers eager to be among the first in their country to own one of the company’s range of performance cars when deliveries start from October 2008. Potential Infiniti owners can sign up by visiting www.infiniti.eu where the list has now opened.
The process is very simple. After entering a few details, Infiniti allocates the customer a personal reservation number. This is then passed to the nearest Infiniti Centre who will contact the customer before pre-ordering opens, inviting he or she to place their order which will then be given priority. But anyone hoping to jump the queue had better sign up soon. Infiniti’s reservation list will only be open for a limited time until 30 September 2008. According to Infiniti Europe’s Marketing Director, Bastien Schupp, almost 10,000 people have already signed up on www.infiniti.eu to be an Infiniti Insider. “We’re pleased to see that excitement and anticipation are building even faster than we expected,” Schupp said.
