It gives us a glimpse at the SUV’s next-generation design and signals Infiniti’s intent to move the QX60 up the premium ladder. Is the 2020 QX60 Monograph a big improvement over the outgoing SUV?

Basketball Star Stephen Curry Is Now Designing Cars...Sort Of
Just because you’re one of the best in the world at hitting threes in the NBA, that doesn’t mean you automatically become a good, even decent, car designer. Stephen Curry is living proof of that. The two-time NBA MVP, who also happens to be a brand ambassador for Infiniti, “designed” this concept monstrosity known as the Infiniti QXzero Concept. It’s an ugly concept, and that’s putting it lightly. The good news is that this isn’t an actual showpiece Infiniti; it’s part of an elaborate prank that Curry and Infiniti pulled on one of the MVP’s best friends, COSeezy. So while it is a bit of a relief to learn that Curry’s automotive design chops weren’t at all compromised by this horrendous three-wheeled showcase of ugliness, the QXzero Concept is still a reminder to all of us that just because there’s a “concept” designation attached to it, that doesn’t mean it’s going to be any good, even if it’s all part of an elaborate jig.
2019 Infiniti Qs Inspiration Concept
The latest in Infiniti’s growing line of Inspiration concepts made its debut at the 2019 Shanghai Auto Show. Called the Qs Inspiration, the concept is the latest in a series of concept cars that Infiniti has showcased to spread the word of its plans for greener powertrains and other new technologies that will shape the future of the brand. Like most automakers these days, Infiniti has moved well beyond “talk is cheap” model by showing an increased commitment in demonstrating what it intends to do now that the industry is in the middle of shifting eras. The Qs Inspiration still looks like a concept, but it’s not really just a concept in the traditional sense of one. It’s a look into a future that isn’t that far away anymore. In fact, look for the next-generation Q50 or Q70 sedans to draw inspiration from the Qs. That’s how close this concept is to becoming, well, more than a concept.
The Infiniti Qs Inspiration Previews an All-Electric Sports Sedan
Infiniti is known for building some of the most awe-inspiring concepts you’ll ever see. It’s nice to see, then, that Infiniti’s form is holding up nicely, as we can see from the Qs Inspiration Concept that’s currently on display at Auto Shanghai 2019. Developed as a sports sedan that showcases Infiniti’s push towards electrification, the Qs Inspiration Concept is a sign that Infiniti’s not just talking the talk when it comes to its electrification plans, it’s provided us with a physical example of what we can look forward to in the future. More importantly, the Qs Inspiration won’t stay a concept for long; Infiniti has plans to build a production model in China, for the Chinese market. It’s all part of the automaker’s goal to offer a diverse lineup of electrified models in the world’s biggest car market. The Qs Inspiration Concept is the first step in achieving that goal.
2019 Infiniti QX Inspiration Concept
The Infiniti QX Inspiration is a concept SUV that the premium firm unveiled at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show. The QX Inspiration is part of a series of Inspiration vehicles that already includes a sedan and another SUV, and it previews an upcoming crossover that will feature an all-electric drivetrain. Unlike the QX Sport Inspiration, which was based on a production SUV, the QX Inspiration boasts a unique design that will likely trickle down into upcoming crossovers. The big news here is the all-electric drivetrain. We don’t know much about it, but Infiniti promises a high-performance motor and battery combo and an intelligent AWD system. The concept also features autonomous driving technology, a new dashboard layout made of high-resolution displays, and a lounge-like cabin.

Infiniti Spills the Beans on Sexy Project Black S
The Infiniti Black S Prototype is proof that the technological divide between production vehicles and Formula One race cars is shrinking. The Hong Kong-based luxury brand of Nissan unveiled a modified version of the coupe at a private party in Paris, showcasing a hybrid electric powertrain developed by the Renault Sport Formula One team. The concept isn’t earmarked for production — not yet, at least — but it does offer a glimpse of Infiniti’s goal to use hybrid and electric powertrains on all of its models by 2021.
Infiniti Project Black S Gets Hybrid Powertrain for Paris
Infiniti is bringing back the Project Black S Prototype with an updated powertrain made up of its 3.0-liter VR30 twin-turbocharged V-6 engine and a unique energy recovery system. The powertrain is one of a number of improvements Infiniti made on the concept, which was first unveiled at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The Project Black S Prototype represents what Infiniti describes as the “very top end of electrification in the (Nissan-Renault-Mitsubishi) Alliance portfolio. It also acts as a benchmark in the company’s pursuit to electrifying its lineup by 2021.
The Infiniti Project Black S Will Showcase Infiniti’s High-Performance Electrified Drivetrain
Infiniti recently announced its plans to electrify its portfolio from 2021; and, as part of this process, the automaker will reveal the Project Black S prototype at the Paris Motor Show. The Project Black S will be Infiniti’s way of showing the world how a Formula One Dual-hybrid powertrain can be used in a road car. Exciting, right?
2018 Infinity Prototype 10 Concept
Infiniti has pulled the wraps off of the Inspiration 10 Concept, providing us a good look at what Infiniti’s future design language could look like. Like its predecessor, the Inspiration 9 Concept, the Inspiration 10 Concept is infused with retro styling, culled from classic speedsters and sculpted with modern design characteristics. Infiniti believes that the concept can serve as a springboard into the design of its future models. As such, the Inspiration 10 Concept is not expected to become a production model anytime soon.
It’s been just 12 months since the Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance was rocked by Infiniti’s unveiling of a Pre-War inspired concept named the Prototype 9. It was one of the best looking concept cars of 2017, and it was electric, which is what everyone is asking for nowadays. All this means that Karim Habib’s first job as chief designer at Infiniti must be a stunner, and the first glimpse we’ve got suggests just that.
Infiniti’s Single-Seater Concept Teased with Sleek Lines and a Lot of Attitude
Infiniti’s teasing game of its Pebble Beach-bound concept continues, and the latest tease finally gives us a good look at the car in all its entirety. Not surprisingly, the new concept, called the Prototype 10, looks nothing like the Prototype 9, the retro stylized concept vehicle Infiniti unveiled at last year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The Prototype 10 is a modern, maybe even futuristic, interpretation of an electric, track-spec speedster that may or may not end up in production.
