I've never really liked the look of debadged cars, but in this case... as long as Mt. Fuji is still in the center of the trunk, I think you might be right.

Except that the Q50 will be a totally new car from the G37 it replaces.

Except that JDM would be Skyline.

So... no.

For me, it will depend what color the Q is on the Q50. If it is anything other than red i'm skipping town/country and perhaps the planet.
Just putting this out there.

The Q50 will be offered in gray.

However, you'll be able to choose from dark gray, light gray, dull gray, almost-black gray, nearly-silver gray, and looks-like-mud gray.

So many choices.

I'm glad they will no longer add the "S" or the "x" to the name to indicate sport or awd versions. I like how Audi/BMW do it by adding the package to the front quarter panel: Audi does it for S-Line and BMW does it for X-Drive.

The big red "S" on my trunk looks like the same "S" used on the Corolla. Now I'm going to get flamed by people telling me to debadge it. I can't win.

I always felt that too. Looks tacky, IMO.. but I eventually decided to accept it rather than debadge. I'm kinda meh when it comes to debadging.

The "S" is completely delegitimized by including it in the G37xS. They never should have added it to the AWD car unless they were going to back it up with something, you know... sport-like. But it does beg the question: what are they going to do going forward with the Sport Package? Will all models get the brake, steering, VLSD and suspension upgrades? Will the 6MT be available AWD? Will there be a "S" on the end of the badge?

It's going to be interesting once the Infiniti website is available for configuration.

Completely agree. It should just be called the performance tire and wheel package.

Wait, what?

That wouldnt work anyway because this site is dedicated to the G37 just like G35driver is dedicated to the G35

That's exactly right. Over the 2 to 3 years, I expect this forum will be far more interesting, and be a better source of information for mods and fixes. By then, all the renters will be gone, and the car will be priced into just the right market.

And then in about 4 to 5 years, this forum will slowly fill up with kiddies, becoming more like G35Driver year over year.

It's the way of things. It just is.

Yup this is very true and will most likely happen. The G37 is a great luxury-sports car and will see lots of new owners coming in over the next couple of years as they become more affordable.

It's because of the price-point as they mentioned in the announcement.

Trim-levels aside, G coupes start at several thousand dollars more than G sedans. Something around $37k vs $40k.

When considering trim-levels, granted the $37k starting price is the G25 sedan, but on the other hand there's also a $45k starting price 6MT G Coupe, and of course the starting price of $50k of the IPL G Coupe.

Anyway...



The more I think about this the more I dislike it. As others have pointed out, the BMW 328 is not a 2.8 litre anymore. If de Nysschen needed to introduce a more powerful M above the M56, but has a 3.0 litre engine, call it an M60! Disassociate the displacement, don't discard the model branding!

Then again, a rose by any other name smells just as sweet.

Or does it?
