    Steph Curry sinks shot into Infiniti Q50's sunroof

    It's not exactly Michael Jordan versus Larry Bird for McDonald's circa 1993, but as we can see from this outtake in filming for his commercial for the Infiniti Q50, NBA star Steph Curry might as well say "nothing but interior." The Golden State Warriors shooting guard signed on with Infiniti as a...

    2018 Infiniti Q50 preview

    The Q50 was the first model to utilize Infiniti’s Q-based naming strategy when it arrived on the scene four years ago. The car is now at the midpoint in its life cycle and to keep it looking and feeling fresh Infiniti has made some updates. Those updates are being introduced on the 2018 Q50...

  • 2017 Infiniti Q50, 2016 Paris auto show

    Infiniti’s Q50 has had it tough since bowing on the market as a 2014 model. First there were teething issues with its drive-by-wire steering system. Then Infiniti teased us with a high-performance version powered by the same engine as the Nissan GT-R but later dropped all hopes of a production version. Nevertheless, the Q50 remains a solid choice in the luxury sport sedan segment, and for 2017 the car receives some minor updates. The list includes new colors for the exterior, one of which is a special hue called Dynamic Sunstone Red. This was applied using a number of special techniques...

    Most new Infinitis to have autonomous capability

    Infiniti has finally revealed the price buyers will have to pay for 400 horsepower: $48,885 for its new Q50 Red Sport 400. Snow belt buyers will probably want to pony up for the $50,885 Q50 Red Sport 400 AWD. The standard Q50 Red Sport 400 delivers its power exclusively to the rear wheels. ALSO...

    Dynamic Digital Suspension, Direct Adaptive Steering, Active Lane Control, and a Drive Mode Selector with more than 300 possibilities. These are all available on the updated 2016 Infiniti Q50.

    2016 Infiniti Q50: Details on new 400-hp twin-turbo V-6

    The refreshed 2016 Infiniti Q50 sport sedan is the first product from the Nissan luxury brand to bear an entirely new-generation V-6. Infiniti has given plenty of hints that this engine is one the way—including putting it under the hood of its Q80 Inspiration Concept, a hint of the flagship...

  • Infiniti  Q50 Sport Muffler

    While Nissan's GT-R makes regular appearances at supercar shootouts, the company's upmarket cousin Infiniti has been largely absent from the performance discussion. Because while the 560-horsepower Q50 Eau Rouge garnered plenty of praise upon its reveal at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, and was reportedly green-lit for production, in a recent conversation with The Car Connection, Infiniti design chief Alfonso Albaisa seemed to suggest—as brief Infiniti boss and current Cadillac president Johan de Nysschen publicly has—that the model isn't going to happen, though the performance...

    Infiniti Q50 May Revert To Older Hydraulic Steering

    Automakers are often at their best when trying something new and breaking free of industry norms, but Infiniti's drive-by-wire steering system, optional on the Q50S sedan, is very much not one of those times. That would be fine if the car's base hydraulic power steering was a suitable alternative...

  • Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge prototype meets Eau Rouge

    Infiniti’s Q50 Eau Rouge, which is officially ‘just’ a prototype, despite Infiniti’s non-stop announcements concerning it, has finally met the famous corner from which it derives its name. We’re talking, of course, about the Eau Rouge corner of the Spa-Francorchamps race track in Belgium, the home of the Formula One Belgian Grand Prix and numerous other important races. Red Bull Racing's Sebastian Vettel, who will be racing at Spa this weekend, took some time out from his busy schedule to drive the Q50 Eau Rouge on the track. The four-time F1 world champion is...

    In a way, we admire the intestinal fortitude of the German in this video. In the interest of science, or at least YouTube views, he sets an Infiniti Q50S in self-driving mode and lets it cruise down the highway. Then he climbs out of the driver’s seat.

    Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge Prototype To Make Dynamic Debut At Goodwood

    Poor Infiniti. It can slap its badge on as many race-winning Formula One cars as it likes and get a multiple F1 champion to sign off a V-8-powered SUV, but it's still not blessed with a particularly exciting reputation. Maybe its latest trick will work a little better: Dropping the 3.8-liter...

    Infiniti Boss Hints At Using GT-R Engine In More Models

    The twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V-6 in Nissan’s GT-R produces a stout 600 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque in its most potent form, so it’s understandable Nissan would be keen to drop the engine into some of its other models. While most other Nissans couldn’t command the...
