If the Infiniti people are to be believed, the Infiniti Q60 concept car will evolve almost unchanged into the 2017 Infiniti Q60 coupe. If that’s the case, then we’re in for one of the sharpest-looking new sport coupes since the Audi A5 arrived on the scene. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, of course, and admittedly some of the concept’s cues are overwrought: the gaping grille, the Formula 1-style front airdam, the bodacious wheels.
But the taut lines stretched from front to rear fenders, and the low grille and hood position — difficult elements to engineer with today’s pedestrian impact safety standards — give the new Infiniti coupe a profile not unlike a Jaguar or Aston Martin. If only 5 percent of what we see now returns to the artist’s sketchbook, the new Q60 coupe should be a head-turner.
