Infiniti Q60 Coupe Arriving by 2016: Exec Says

Infiniti Q60 Coupe Arriving by 2016: Exec Says

Infiniti will roll out a coupe version of the Q50 sedan it brought to the 2013 Detroit Auto Show in another two or three years according to brand boss Johan de Nysschen.

“I think the coupe is an important part of the platform,” said de Nysscehn in an interview with CarAdvice. “Most certainly we are working right now on a coupe derivative of the car [Q50] … known at the Q60.”

The all-new Q50 sedan was revealed with a revised version of Infiniti’s 3.7-liter V6 engine that makes 328 hp, which may carry over to the Q60. When asked about other engines for the Q50, de Nysschen revealed that Infiniti is sourcing turbo-charged four cylinder and diesel engines from Mercedes-Benz. “Same for transmissions. We will be commencing, through joint manufacturing with Jatco, a transmission that will also be used by Daimler,” said de Nysschen.

The agreement for engines from Mercedes-Benz goes deeper as well, as the two brands may also share a new platform. “There is potential for platform sharing, joint platform development … all of these are under exploration at the moment,” said de Nysschen.

Finally, when asked about a performance oriented version of the Q50, de Nysschen admitted, “someday in the future we will be able to offer more high performance versions [of the Q50] than we have today. I think that anything is possible, the dynamic capabilities of this platform are very significant. It can handle far higher power than the engines we are using at launch.”

  • Pipes95

    Doesn’t really make sense. OF COURSE YOU’RE BUILDING A Q60!!!! What, so you were trying to make it look like you were going to abandon the G37 coupe? GET OVER YOURSELF!!! ITS NOT A SURPRISE!!!!! STUBBING YOUR TOE AND SHARTING ARE BOTH SURPRISES. THIS IS NOT.

    Why Q? Isn’t that the failed Q45 lineage that was completely over-shadowed by Lexus?  The G is what Infiniti well known.

  • Gjones

    I like and love the corporate complete name change even if the vehicles are the same, the name is more upscale. Lexus should rename all their vehicles LS. Starting with LS250 and all crossovers and SUV’s starting with LS350. This will give the complete Lexus line a more upscale name.

  • Gjones

    Or Lexus can rename all the SUV’s. LX , starting with LX350. This will give the Lexus trucks a more upscale name; for example the Lexus RX350 would become LX350.

  • Gjones

    No, the Q45 was the first Infiniti in 2002 and the first vehicle sold or lease with a rear view camera. Yes the Q45 was the first vehicle in 2002 with a back-up camera this is the history beginning of Nissan’s upscale luxury brand Infiniti. Therefore the new Corporate leadership at Infiniti has change the complete line based from the first and original “Q” series from the year 2002.
