A few days ago we reported that Infiniti will bring two M-based models to the Pebble Beach Concours. Today, AutoBlog reports that the new models will be sold under the Infiniti Performance Line (IPL) nomenclature.

What is IPL? "A new catalog of in-house developed upgrades which – according to the filing – will include everything from air filters to cat-back exhaust systems, and – more intriguingly – "automotive engine parts, namely turbochargers and superchargers." Most like Infiniti’s version of the Nissan’s Nismo and the F-Sport line for Lexus.

Previously reported, the two models being brought to Pebble Beach "will extend Infiniti into an area we haven’t been before and that one of those models will be more performance oriented." Any performance orientation mixed in with some turbochargers and superchargers would definitely be a hot ticket. We can’t wait to see what specifications come out of Pebble Beach this year...namely by Infiniti.

If the NISMO is behind all of this, then expect the un-expected from NISMO.

Infinity based their M car into E-class MB, sounds very odd! But this is the reality.

The infinity m and g does share it’s platform from the Mercedes benz E-class. so expect the best out of M-G infinity.

Well, I think this new line of performance fits to the G37 coupe. Basically it is extensive that the modifications remains to be seen, and i guess one of the models will be set to debut performance oriented, and will be forced induction to be a part of the package.
