I'd probably just stick with a sports coupe. a convertible is cool and all but is not necessary in my books. Not to mention the extra weight of the motor and top.

Was never a fan of the convertible. More weight I don't need. I don't like convertibles. They just add to noise and weight and decrease chassis rigidity.

convertibles are cool and all but i'm gonna have to go with the q60 sports coupe cause eventually I'll want to turn this into my weekend track car, so all that extra weight from the convertible top assembly will hold me back

I guess I'll break the trend... I'm aiming all manual convetible if it's an option! Not worried about out running the cops or the track, so I'd rather having somethign fun for winery days and beach trips!

I don't know what it is with infiniti/nissan but their convertibles are hideous. Both the 370z and g37 convertible looked out of place. I would much rather go with a sports coupe, keeping it original.

Qc.... I don't know if you meant to say such silly things, so I'll give you a pass this one time... but the converitble 350z is freaking smoking hot. I havn't seen the 370z in person yet... so I will hold my opinion for a later date ;)

Have you been living under a rock? Haven't seen a 370z? They're everywhere man! You must be living somewhere not so populated. It's a good think you haven't though, I'd much rather take a 350z over 370!

I don't think convertibles have as much fans as coupes. It really is a matter of preference. I don't really like convertibles personally. I would take the coupe every time.

Hardtop converitble is the best of every world... no reason not to take it. And I've seen the 370zs witht heir wide asses but not a convertible version!! But yes, Roanoke could very easily be considered a rock, with great paved roads ;) I almost got a 350z convertible but the trunk was so **** small I couldn't even pack for a week to the beach house.... FAIL!

Cargo space is definitely something to consider when getting a convertible. I have a feeling an Infiniti Q60 convertible will also have poor trunk space, the whole convertible setup eats up a lot of space as always. Plus for real space to be had, the Q60 will need to be really long, which in this case it will probably be as long as the Q50 or up to 6 inches shorter.

For convertibles, there isn't much space to keep the motor for the top so trunk space is sacrificed for this reason. The market for a convertible is a small number compared to the Q50 sedan and the Q60 coupe itself. It will be tough though unless infiniti comes out with a revolutionizing one.

The motor is probably the smallest thing about the convertible top that sits in the trunk, the rest of the moving parts like arms take up A LOT of space. After all look at how big of an object is needs to move and keep stable all the way through it's movement.

I'm also certain that structural integrity is lost as well with the convertible. The handling also suffers somewhat when compared to the coupe version. Convertibles are fun but not very functional.

Another thing to consider for the Q60 coupe and the Q60 convertible is the weight and fuel economy. I think there would be a difference in weight with the two isn't there.
