The Infiniti Q50 Gets A 211 Horsepower Turbo Four

I was so caught up in the mouth-watering news about the Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge's Nissan GT-R engine that I forgot to mention another big piece of news about Infiniti engines. Actually, it's small rather than big, but that's the point. » 3/05/14 9:45am 3/05/14 9:45am

The Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge Is The GT-R Sedan We've Always Wanted

They did it. They finally did it. Today in Geneva the hood was lifted on the Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge, and it has the engine we've always wanted: the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 from the Nissan GT-R with 560 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. » 3/04/14 8:15am 3/04/14 8:15am

Infiniti's Boss Wants The Brand To Be The Japanese Answer To BMW

I think Infiniti CEO Johan De Nysschen must watch The Dark Knight on repeat a lot, because his plans are a lot like something The Joker was fond of saying in that film: "aggressive expansion." It's how he aims to make Infiniti run with the big dogs for the first time ever. » 1/16/14 4:00pm 1/16/14 4:00pm

The Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge Is An F1-Inspired Car With An Inspired Name

The Infiniti Q50 comes up short in a few areas. When Patrick drove it, he said it lacked soul, panache, a stick-shift and an analog clock. One thing it wasn't short on was power, but that's an area Infiniti wants to address with the Q50 Eau Rogue that will be shown at next month's Detroit Auto Show. » 12/05/13 11:43am 12/05/13 11:43am

The Nissan Skyline Is Probably About To Die

The current Nissan GT-R is not a Skyline. Know what is? The Infiniti G-Series. As usual a premium brand for Japanese luxury cars hasn't been necessary in their homeland, but these days it seems to be different. Lexus are now in Japan, and Nissan are about to start selling Infiniti models in the JDM market as well. With … » 10/14/13 1:11pm 10/14/13 1:11pm

You Should Buy An Infiniti G37 Instead Of A Q50

Despite eventual replacement by the new Infiniti Q50, it turns out the current G37 will soldier on longer than planned. The G37 sedan will continue on with its current form and name alongside the Q50 until 2015, Infiniti says. Here's why you should buy the G instead. » 8/06/13 12:20pm 8/06/13 12:20pm

Infiniti Thinks Having 'Direct Response' Is As Good As A Stick-Shift

The G37-supplanting Infiniti Q50 was shown at the Detroit show this week, and for the first time, there's a hybrid version of the brand's BMW 3-series fighter. Like its bigger brother's M35 hybrid (or Q-something hybrid starting next year), it has a big honkin' 3.5-liter V6 tied to an electric motor. » 1/20/13 1:00pm 1/20/13 1:00pm

In a bid to confuse those of us who cover cars, and maybe those who buy them, Infinti is going back to their weird alphanumeric system that means nothing and makes no sense. All luxury crossovers and SUVs will be named QX, which means the EX35 is now the QX50, the Infiniti JX is now the QX60, the smaller FX is now the… » 12/17/12 8:31pm 12/17/12 8:31pm
