Infiniti Q60 Concept To Debut At 2015 Detroit Auto Show?

Excited to see the direction they will take with it....

Infiniti may have just lost its turnaround strategist Johan de Nysschen but the automaker has no intention of slowing down the expansion plans devised under the guidance of the South African executive. Infiniti recently appointed a new chief in the form of former BMW exec Roland Krüger, and at last month’s Paris Auto Show it gave us a preview of a new flagship model with its Q80 Inspiration concept.

Other new models on the horizon include an entry-level Q30 hatch and a QX30 crossover spinoff, but before these arrive we’ll see a new Q60. The Q60, for those not up to date with Infiniti’s new naming strategy, is essentially the G coupe, which was last renewed for the 2008 model year.

The new Q60 is expected on the market late next year, as a 2016 model, and now Infiniti’s design chief Alfonso Albaisa has revealed to Motor Trend that a production-like concept version of the car will be presented on January 13. That date just so happens to coincide with one of the press days for the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, suggesting we'll see the concept relatively soon.

As for the eventual production version, Shiro Nakamura, design chief for all Nissan brands, previously said the new Q60 will target the BMW 4-Series but will be slightly larger and feature a design influenced by the Q80 Inspiration. Other potential rivals for the new coupe include the Audi A5, Cadillac ATS Coupe, Lexus RC and Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe.

The platform for the new Q60 is likely to be a shortened version of the rear-wheel-drive platform underpinning the Q50 sedan. It’s too early to talk powertrains but it’s possible we’ll see the new twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 from the Q80 Inspiration offered in the new Q60. There’s also the chance that a high-performance Eau Rouge version powered by the Nissan GT-R’s twin-turbo V-6 could be developed at some point.

Stay tuned for an update.

If the new coupe has turbo V6 power are you guys ready to buy turbos in your next car? Personally, I'm not ready for steering by wire, until cars are approved to drive by themselves.
