    Auto show season is just right around the corner with Frankfurt kicking off this season in September. Already, automakers are beginning to tease what they will be showing at the show. For example, Infiniti released teaser shots of their Q30 Concept.

    "This Infiniti Q30 Concept is a prelude to the product portfolio expansion which underpins our aggressive global growth strategy. In our quest to appeal to the modern, young-minded premium customer, the Infiniti Q30 Concept has a distinctive style and reaches new levels of product quality,"said Johan de Nysschen, President of Infiniti.

    The Q30 Concept to our eyes looks to be a more aggressive take on the Infiniti Etherea concept shown at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. The Q30 Concept has two firsts for the company,

    • First Infiniti concept to come out under the company's new design director, Alfonso Albaisa
    • First Infiniti vehicle that will have F1 Driver and Infiniti's Director of Performance, Sebastian Vettel develop (When it hits production)

    • Q30 Concept signals Infiniti's next step in its portfolio expansion into new premium segments

    Hong Kong – Infiniti will stage the world premiere of its Q30 Concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

    The Infiniti Q30 Concept signals the contemporary design vision for a compact Infiniti vehicle which will target a new generation of premium customers.

    Set to be unveiled at Infiniti's press conference, scheduled for 10:15 am CET on September 10 in Frankfurt, the Q30 Concept is the next step in Infiniti's foray into new premium segments. It embodies Infiniti's vision to deliver head-turning design, innovative materials with precise fit and finish and passionate craftsmanship.

    "This Infiniti Q30 Concept is a prelude to the product portfolio expansion which underpins our aggressive global growth strategy," said Johan de Nysschen, President of Infiniti Motor Company, Ltd. "In our quest to appeal to the modern, young-minded premium customer, the Infiniti Q30 Concept has a distinctive style and reaches new levels of product quality."

    It represents the latest evolution of the Infiniti design philosophy introduced with the Infiniti Q50 which had its world premiere at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January. Like the Q50, the Infiniti Q30 Concept also incorporates dramatic design cues from the visionary Infiniti concept trilogy – Essence, Etherea and Emerg-e.

    Infiniti envisions provoking a radical shift in the premium compact segment. The adventurous design and graceful athleticism of Q30 Concept inspire greater expectations of what is possible beyond the designs dominant in the market today.

    "Q30 Concept is slender, sleek and seductive," said Alfonso Albaisa, Infiniti Executive Design Director. "When you see speedy big cats, like cheetahs, they have a slenderness and a lightweight stride. It's almost like they're floating. That's the muscularity we were aiming for with Q30 Concept."

    Infiniti's forthcoming compact premium entry will be the first Infiniti model Sebastian Vettel, Infiniti's Director of Performance, will influence from its inception. The three-time Formula One world champion from Infiniti Red Bull Racing, who was actively involved in honing the driving dynamics of the Infiniti Q50, is engaging with Infiniti's technical teams around the world as part of a commitment to infuse the brand with race-bred performance.

    We'll this is a Bomb for me. While the aggressive body style is nice, not a fan of the Bass large mouth look in the front and the narrow slit side windows. You might as well just encase the passenger in a tube of metal and use camera's to see everywhere so they are safe.

    This car is a lost cause if that is their new design language. Looks like the ass got cut off Bobbitt style.

      The latest CEO at Nissan, Hiroto Saikawa, is out-of-office permanently as of September 16th after yet another financial scandal rocks the company.  Saikawa is the second Nissan CEO to be tainted by financial misconduct allegations. 
      Allegedly, Saikawa received improper payments with regards to the sale of Nissan stock. The payments were after the date of the sale of the stock was altered and netted Saikawa additional hundreds of thousands of dollars. Saikawa has not yet been charged with a crime. Saikawa originally said he would stay on until a replacement was found, but abruptly changed course and formally resigned today.
      The temporary replacement will be Chief Operating Officer Yasuhiro Yamauchi until a permanent replacement has been found. There are currently ten candidates for the positions and Nissan says it is considering outsiders and non-Japanese.

    • Love the Tour de Costco lunch. I have no guilt over it, after all they are there for you to sample and see if you like it. Nothing about purchasing now, but you might in the future. Love when the Aidells Sausage bazaar comes to town. https://www.aidells.com/products?cid=aidells:ps:psl:ms:43034:2817&utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=Brand_Core_Exact_ADL&utm_term=adells sausage&utm_content=Misspellings&gclid=CKTVlqfwruUCFQbZDQod_bYKDw&gclsrc=ds Love the costco special edition of Chicken sausage with Mushroom and mozzarella.  😋
    • Houston can be cool, as in likable.  At least it's a major Texan city near a large body of water.  I know summers there can be ridiculously hot.  Enjoy. Man, I don't think the ladies with their hair in hair nets at Costco like folks who, once they catch on, are doing the "Tour de Costco" lunch.  "I'm in the tire shop." "I came to look around to see if there are any specials on clothing." Blah, blah, blah. Have you ever done that?  Sometimes, when traveling or commuting, you're driving down a freeway, it's about feeding time, and, there, like a mirage, a Costco appears.  For what I pay for my annual membership, I don't buy much, so WTH.  Then, if I do the "Tour de Costco," I might have some pangs of guilt, so I head to "Cafe 1.50" and get their hot dog (with sauerkraut) and a soft drink.
    • Nikola was the company I could not remember the name on. https://nikolamotor.com/motor Seems they have 3 semi Class 8 Fuel cell trucks to offer now.
