2009 Infiniti G37 Convertible Teases Us Right With New Shot

Illustration for article titled 2009 Infiniti G37 Convertible Teases Us Right With New Shot

Credit goes to Infiniti for dropping the most direct and revealing "teaser" shots for the 2009 Infiniti G37 convertible, which is set to debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show this fall. Perhaps Infiniti is being generous in light of other automakers boring us with repeated glimpses...or perhaps it is because our pshop of it isn't that far off from the predictable design. Press release below the jump.

Infiniti Announces Next New Model For Europe Infiniti may have only just arrived in Europe but the brand is wasting no time in announcing the next addition to its range of performance cars, the G37 Convertible, which will go on sale from summer 2009. The news coincides with the release of a second image of the car that shows how Infiniti’s designers have preserved the sensuous lines of the G37 Coupé … despite the need to accommodate the Convertible’s three-piece automatic retracting hardtop. The G37 Convertible promises beautiful styling and the dynamic performance worthy of an Infiniti G. It will be powered by the same 320PS 3.7-litre V6 engine, featuring Infiniti’s Variable Valve Event and Lift technology, as its sister Sedan and Coupé models. There will be a choice of standard six-speed manual transmission or optional seven-speed automatic with paddle shift. More pictures and details of the G37 Convertible will be issued at the 2008 Los Angeles Auto Show in November during the car’s global debut.

Classy Convertibles are becoming a rare sight, and this one looks OK, but I'm not a big fan of the G37 Coupe anyway. As has been stated earlier, the Sebring is just hideous, the Mustang is just too common, the Swedes both look OK, the BMW's are awful, and the Mitsubishi thingy is wretched.

I know I'm going to get flack over this statement, but I rather like the current Solara. In specific colors it looks rather elegant, much better than the wart SC from it's sister division. Oh, and does Mercedes still make the "C" class convertible? That was rather fetching.
