Wow! That is one seriously fast Infiniti. What will it be called do you think? Will it keep with the "Q" naming scheme?

Infiniti hasn't really tread into super car territory before. It should be fun to see what they can come up with.

Maybe Infiniti will make it a hybrid as this seems to be a trend with many of the other car manufacturers (BMW, Acura.)

i knew it, all this talk about an infiniti Halo car, with the GT-R sitting right next door it was only natural they stole a little. Can't wait to see Vettels input with this project. I'm sure Q90 is much more exciting for him than his Vettel edition FX LOL

Any news on the new 370Z? Thaats going to be out first Q60 clue

So you think that first we will see the new 370Z and hen that will give us clues as to what to expect from the Q90? I can see how the two cars will be similar. The 370Z is already a pretty nice car so the Q90 would have to be really really nice to be the luxury version of it.

Where is that rendering of the Infiniti Q90 from? Just a fan, or something from Infiniti?

At this stage I don't think much will be known. Its still an idea. Still a concept. And nothing is known about it.

We don't know the name. Or truly what will power it.

Its all based off rumors.

By the looks of it, it will remain in the concept form for a while. I'd say we wouldn't see anything come near production for another couple of years.

370 has nothing to do with Q90. 370Z and Q60 are the same car underneath, GT-R and Q90 will be related.

Well how much is an LF-LC? Is it passed the $100k mark?
a while ago I read that i could cost anywhere in the range from $130 000 to $160 000. It was just speculation, but what I believe to be about right. Looking at what they currently sell, there's no way it can be under $100k or even 90K

If it's anything like the GTR Infiniti being the luxury line of Nissan It would only make sense to cost more than the GTR. Well, if it consisted of the same components.

If it beats the LFA in the 1/4 mile I know there will be a ton of people saying the Lexus LFA is a rip off, if it performs better than a GT-R, chances are it can beat an LFA.

That is pretty sad for double the price and it can't beat the GTR. so whats the point just watching this video gives you all the reason get the GTR instead. Even if the infiniti version of the GTR I really can't see the price being close to the LFA.

Well the R36 GTR is already in dev, supposed to show up in '16. So were likely looking at a '17 release for the Infiniti derivative. The R36 is also getting Hybrid tech, so thats where that is going to come from. Also and most interesting is that NISMO is leading the dev work on R36, that was not the case on the current R35, so its likely the R36 GTR shows up more track focused and the Infiniti Qwhatever will be more of a tourer...

You have to figure, the current GTR is pretty heavy at almost 4,000 lbs so the R36 should slash that weight but the Infiniti would likely be heavier because of the luxury tech included...

Haven't read much on the R36. The R35 is still the leader in its class. Going to be tough for Nissan to +1 that

Well I think they will be able to now that they are going to split the duties of R36 between Nissan and Infiniti. The R35 suffers because not only is it wicked fast but it also attempts to be a friendly everyday car you could drive with your family if you were soft in the head.

Now with R36 the Nissan can be more performance oriented, perhaps a bit more raw as well, while leaving the comfort and touring duties to the Infiniti...
