The new Infiniti flagship will be styled after the Essence concept and it is supposed to take on directly the likes of the Porsche Panamera and the Maserati Quattroporte.

The new flagship will offer performance "that will take the challenge right up to the likes of Panamera and beyond" in the same way the Nissan GT-R offers performance that allows it to "cream" the Porsche 911, and unnamed company insider told Motoring.com.au.

Infiniti will offer two powertrain options, both of which will be twin-turbo hybrid electrics. The entry level engine will mate a 3.0-liter direct-injection turbo V6 to a hybrid drivetrain. It should put out something like 550 hp.

The top of the line model will get a currently in the works twin-turbo 3.7-liter V6 hybrid capable of 700 hp. he flagship will also use the GT-R's ATTESA all-wheel drive system, providing it with class-leading performance in the form of a four-second-ish 0-62 time and a top speed in excess of 186 mph.

The Infiniti flagship should go on sale in 2017 or 2018.
