Infiniti working on three new models
Infiniti will expand its line-up with three new models in the near future: a smaller model than the current G and a high-end coupe or convertible models equivalent to the Nissan GT-R.
The first model will be powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. "We’re starting to investigate an expansion of the brand," said Nissan’s global design chief, Shiro Nakamura, at a press event here. "These are just ideas we are thinking about."
Also under consideration: a high-end coupe or convertible to be Infiniti’s equivalent to the Nissan GT-R, the Nissan brand’s halo sports car due in 2008. Some planners say the raw power of the 500-hp GT-R isn’t suited to Infiniti’s refined image. But there still is interest in the segment.
It is also a possibility that Infinti will develop a new model, a vehicle different from a minivan and SUV, but one that doesn’t crowd Infiniti’s FX crossover or the EX crossover that goes on sale in December.
