On the heels of rumors that Infiniti is looking to introduce both an M Coupe and Convertible, Nissan’s luxury division has announced it will bring two M-based models to Pebble Beach. And as exciting as it would be to have an M Coupe and Convertible join the Infiniti M lineup, there may be more to the new models than just a two-door and drop-top layout. While Infiniti did claims that the models will, “extend Infiniti into an area we haven’t been before,” we’re more excited by the announcement that one of the vehicles will be more “performance oriented.”
With an M Coupe all but assured at this point, its possible that along with a competitor to the Mercedes E350 Coupe and E550 Coupe (M37 Coupe and M56 Coupe), Infiniti could also launch a flagship performance vehicle using the GT-R’s engine or possibly a performance hybrid setup similar to the one found in the Essence Concept. There’s certainly plenty of competition in this segment with the upcoming BMW M6, the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe and possibly even a Mercedes E63 Coupe.
Other than these tasty bits of info, Infiniti has only released the above sketches of the vehicles. We’ll be sure to bring you more info when we get it, leading up to the official unveiling at Pebble Beach on August 15th.
