The Infiniti Q60 is coming to a dealership near you this summer, but that’s where things get complicated.
Last month, Infiniti announced that it would revise its naming structure so that all its new cars would be called a “Q” something. In other words, the current G37 sedan will henceforth be called the Q50. Crossover models will be called “QX” something in the same way. Recent reports suggest the G37 coupe, soon to be called the Q60, would arrive in 2016 and that still probably isn’t false.
But does that mean Infiniti is putting the kibosh on its current sport coupe until the new one arrives? Of course not.
Infiniti spokesman Kyle Bazemore clarified, saying all of Infiniti’s product line will be under the new naming structure by this summer.
“This helps us out. It’s always been difficult,” he said of the G37 sedans and coupes. “This helps us out with the Q50 and Q60 because they’re on a different cycle now.”
Bazemore said that means the current sport coupe will be re-badged with the new name, but won’t be any different aside from its new name.
Infiniti boss Yohan de Nysschen recently acknowledged that the brand is working on a coupe version of the Q50 shown during the Detroit Auto Show, but the brand has yet to announced a due date.
