Infiniti could build their own version of the Nissan GT-R, but company CEO Carlos Ghosn remains noncommittal.
Nissan says Infiniti could be producing its own version of the GT-R and left the possibility for a high- performance luxury coupe. According to CAR Magazine, when asked about the possibility of an Infiniti GT-R, Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn said "No, I don't think so. If your question is if we could do that, I would say yes." The main question was not if Infiniti was capable of producing their own GT-R, but rather when.
Once again, Carlos Ghosn was put under the spotlight when asked about going to work on the supercar. "Will we do it? I think we need to go step by step. The idea makes sense. The technology is here, the platform is here. It's a great car, the GT-R. Is it a project now? No. I don't want to give you the impression we'll never do that. But I don't want you to think that it's coming in the next two to three years either." Infiniti is currently underway on producing an EV that will be available in 2013. There will also be a compact car to rival the BMW 1-Series and Mercedes-Benz A-Class that will be due out in 2014.
The Infiniti Essence concept was originally unveiled at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show and gave an indication on how an Infiniti GT-R style car would look like if it was put into production. Infiniti will launch the FX crossover, M performance sedan with a G37 coupe and convertible in Australia sometime in 2012. Photos displayed are of the 2009 Infiniti Essence Concept.
