Infiniti's new naming nomenclature has the G sedan turning into the Q50 and the G Coupe/Convertible into the Q60. While we've seen the production version of the new Q50, we didn't know when we'll see the Q60. In a interview with CarAdvice.com.au, Infiniti's global boss, Johan de Nysschen said a production version of the Q60 will arrive in 2015/2016.
“I think the coupe is an important part of the platform. Most certainly we are working right now on a coupe derivative of the car [Q50] … known at the Q60."
So why the long wait for the coupe?
“But, you know, there are a lot of priorities for us. I really want to look at expansion of the entire portfolio. So we probably need to prioritize a little bit the volume segments. So the coupe we can probably expect two and a half to three years down the road,” de Nysschen said.
de Nysschen also hinted at a high performance version of the Q50/Q60, saying "someday in the future we will be able to offer more high performance versions [of Q50] than we have today... the dynamic capabilities of this platform are very significant. It can handle far higher power than the engines we are using at launch."

I don't like the A4-A5, 328i-428i, Q50-Q60 naming schemes.  It is confusing and sort of pointless.  Mercedes has got it nailed down, the C-class in sedan and coupe form, E-class in sedan and coupe, etc.  It makes sense.  It looks like Cadillac will continue on with ATS coupe and sedan and CTS coupe and sedan.  Cadillac and Mercedes have it right, Infiniti seems like a mess right now, but I suppose they have a 20 year plan.

2016 model will be 2 years into the new model's run...almost time for an MCE

Bah- all the alphanumerics basically suck, but at least once it's ingrained, people know what you're talking about. A mid-stream change for change's sake is just confusing.


Plus... the infiniti q45 was a flop, and audi already HAS a Q5 and Q7!

Q5 <> Q50... is there REALLY such a low-tide of imagination/creativity in autodom?

Losing a bit of the distinctiveness makes for a better car.
