Yesterday, Infiniti announced a new prototype called the Project Black S that would use Formula One-style, performance-oriented hybrid tech. It floated some extremely seductive performance figures—563 horsepower, zero to 62 mph sprint in under four seconds—but at this point in the game, I’m fed up with empty promises…
Life may be full of crushing and bitter disappointments, but remember this: you can weather all of it because you drive an Infiniti J30.
On paper, the 2018 Infiniti Q50 Red Sport AWD is a 400 horsepower premium sedan positioned to take on the higher trim competition from BMW, Mercedes and Audi. But in practice, it’s a 400 hp car with a jarringly dated interior and upsettingly numb steering, leaving it just short of being legitimately fun.
I know that Infiniti’s Prototype 10 probably has an extremely slim chance of becoming real, but damn do I want it to manifest into a production version. It looks utterly remarkable. Single-seater! Perfect for misanthropes like me.
Infiniti, a luxury car brand that we have increasingly questioned the point of, admittedly does concepts well. Past design studies have been both retro and sleek and the automaker’s newest Prototype 10 concept car doesn’t seem like it will be any different.
Sedans are having a rough time right now, though whether or not that means you can score a deal depends on the market that you are shopping in. But if you are looking for something with power, luxury, and reliability under $20,000, your best bet may be the car that got lost in a weird name change: the Infiniti Q40.
A woman in Cornwall, Ontario accidentally drove away in someone’s Infiniti after mistaking it for her Nissan rental car, the local police posted on Facebook. After two weeks, she returned what she though was her rental car, and complained about how “unkept” it was before realizing her mistake. Here’s how the Canadian…
When we last chatted with you about the Infiniti Q Inspiration concept, we left off with the hope that it would usher in a new era of Infinti production cars. Lord knows Infiniti needs it. And it looks like we’ll be getting some electrified version of it within the next five years.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
It looks like any other crossover, so you never know it from looking at it, but the 2019 Infiniti QX50 has a technological marvel at its heart. Beneath that handsome but not especially controversial sheet metal lies the company’s new variable compression ratio engine, a pretty fascinating piece of technology.
The 2019 Infiniti QX50 is as plush as it is pretty. And for better or worse, you’ll never notice that it has an engine unlike anything else on the road right now. In fact, in this crossover, you’ll barely realize you’re driving at all.
Infiniti brought one of the most intriguing concept cars to the Detroit Auto Show this year, in part because it was one of the only actual concepts revealed, but also because it’s a beautifully sculpted package that finds a tricky balance of design and new engineering. Here’s what its designer had to say about the…
When Infiniti showed off the sleek Q Inspiration Concept at the Detroit Auto Show, it was actually moving under its own power thanks to the radical new variable compression engine. Evidently, however, that motor isn’t really the future of Infiniti, as Nissan’s CEO announced an aggressive plan to go pretty much…
This is mean, but not inaccurate: Infiniti hasn’t done anything truly interesting in a good while. Nissan’s luxury brand spent years faltering as it tried to stand apart in a crowded field, with plenty of weird false starts like the canceled high-performance Q50 Eau Rouge along the way. But while it’s just a design…
Winter can really get you down, especially when it’s painfully cold outside. Fortunately, this sense of despair can be easily cured through the proper, very sideways use of a neatly plowed parking lot.
Infiniti will be showing a new concept car at the Detroit Auto Show next month, and they decided to give us a little teaser look at it. It’s interesting, even if it does feel a bit like a fancy folded napkin or maybe a bit of intricate origami.
We’be been making a lot of fuss about new variable compression engine technology from the likes of Nissan and Mazda lately, and now a production version is finally here, all wrapped in the attractive new body of the Infiniti QX50.
The status of Meh Car isn’t an entirely rational one. Meh-ness isn’t something that you can always engineer out of a car, or something that’s even necessarily based on how the car performs or works. Meh-ness is a more like a mythical, gray mist-dragon of cloudy disinterest, and once it gets its clammy, bland, dull…
You kids wanna see something cool? Here’s a hi-res wireframe cutaway of the Infiniti Prototype 9, the faux-vintage electric race car concept that should be lame but is actually good.
We all remember the glory days of racing, back when real men and women sat in thin metal tubes operating insanely fast machines. The days when the Mille Miglia was a sport, not a parade, and everybody wanted to die going fast. Infiniti remembers those good ol’ days—wait what?
