So someone is leaking info, so they had to correct the issue.
Toyota brought the new Supra to market, because they are very successful in selling vehicles and are not in the state that Nissan / Infiniti are in. Because Toyota was in a stronger position, they could invest in a new vehicle and a partnership with BMW to execute it. So, I'm not sure I see how your reference to the Supra relates to my question I asked regarding sales and profitability.Enough that Toyota brought back the Supra for that specific need and Toyota was straight forward about it.
What I want to convey is that Toyota makes smarter decisions and listens to their customers. As a customer, I want a car that can be modded. If what Infiniti produces doesn’t interest me, as a consumer and there are perhaps more ppl like me, don’t you think Nissan/Infiniti would ought to listen? I was fooled to think that q50 RS was such a car until I realized that even though the car is nice is neither a true Sports car or a car that can be heavily modded or even lightly modded without issues. Tbh, I have no idea what’s the target audience for the RS 400 ... the younger generation drive these cars hard, which the cars are not going to last and older folks don’t really care for them. So, what’s the segment red sport attracts if it’s not the younger generation?Toyota brought the new Supra to market, because they are very successful in selling vehicles and are not in the state that Nissan / Infiniti are in.

The Supra will sit on sales lots gathering dust and costing dealerships plenty of money for the space and interest on the vehicle.Toyota brought the new Supra to market, because they are very successful in selling vehicles and are not in the state that Nissan / Infiniti are in.

Same here...lol. I google about once a week to see if any other details have leaked out, to no avail. I would love it if you could goad @Carmaker1 into doing another info drop like he's done in the past. I am still having a hard time believing that the VR30 is just going to be dumped from Infiniti's lineup in the forthcoming electrification era, being that it's such a new engine.Nope....notta....no-thing....complete radio silence and not for the lack of trying
I've been trying to bait @Carmaker1 out from his silence here on this forum, to no avail. He has been posting on the Lexus Enthusiasts Forum; although, he had only mentioned INFINITI in passing - nothing ground breaking.
Perhaps, @BigHeadClan has snuffed something out.
Good luck on the purchase....it will be your luck (and my sincerest sympathies for you) that those idiots in Yokohama would announce details for an MY21 debut at the time of your purchase.
I agree with you on this one. I think what was holding them back was the alliance, and unclear direction. I always tell my friends this but even when Nissan /Renault went through tough times, they still delivered a Twin Turbo V6, which a lot for competitors do not have in this class, especially with the price range. So if this is at their worst, I am looking forward to what will come, with new strategy and focusing on quality and new products versus aggressive expansion, as the new CEO mentions. Split from considering split from Renault as mentioned in the news would help I believe.I highly doubt that the engineers at Infiniti didn’t see the turbo cooling issues coming, as evidenced by their attempt to improve the cooling on the red sport model which btw they failed miserably to accomplish. But if you ask me, it looks like they cut corners everywhere they could to save money regardless of the drivability and performance of the car. For this reason Infiniti lost me as a customer and sadly I bought a boat load of cars from them over the years. Cutting corners to this degree of silliness its just bad business. My advice to Infiniti would be to rethink their strategy of trying to gain market share at any cost and concentrate on quality and wants of their customers instead of producing inferior cars and pretending these cars are great because they are not.
Nissan's series-hybrid EV implementation want require charging. The small engine will act a power-charge generator for the battery. IIRC, we will see these before Nissan release another full EV solution.Need to think about the practicality of an EV. You need to have a garage and a proper setup to charge (50Amp 240V).
Charging is still quite impractical and takes too long.
Manufacturers need to come up with an industry standard battery and battery packs. You can then drive to a station, unlock a side door between the bottom of the doors and the bottom of the car...think of it as a long rectange on both sides of the car or on just one side of the car, remove the used battery and slide in the new battery pack or packs.
This process should not take more than 5 minutes. This would allow more people to go electric.
Absolutely awesome and outstanding post.From the article linked below:
Nissan hasn’t launched a completely new dedicated electric vehicle in nearly 10 years.
That’s all set to change soon with the introduction of not just one or two new EVs, but an entire new family of them—and potentially, by the middle of the decade, more than a dozen models globally across Nissan, its Infiniti luxury brand, and its Renault and Mitsubishi alliance partners.
The same electric-car toolkit will share battery and propulsion pieces but allow a lot of flexibility—even for e-Power series hybrids.www.greencarreports.com
