Have we finally gotten a glimpse of the long-awaited successor to the brand’s original halo car, the 1990 Q45? Or is the new Inspiration just there to tease us with hints of the direction Infiniti will take after a recent shake-up in corporate design management?

What a Concept!

“Our Detroit concept car heralds a new generation of Infiniti,” is all we’re getting from Alfonso Albaisa, the long-time Infiniti stylist who recently was named global design director for parent Nissan Motor Co.

Infiniti provides a rear view of the Q Inspiration Concept coming to the NAIAS this month.

QX50 Concept Takes Infiniti Style to Next Level

Crossover shows what's possible.

by on Jan.09, 2017

Infiniti takes the QX Inspiration one step closer to reality with the QX50 Concept in Detroit.

The Infiniti QX50 concept isn’t what one has come to expect from concept cars at the world’s auto shows. It doesn’t feature revolutionary materials or space-age polymers, it’s just an example of what happens the best of everything is applied to one vehicle.
