2011 Infiniti M
In Japanese automotive press circles, some well educated guesses are being thrown around about the new Nissan Fuga with the appearance of a test car spotted in Arizona recently. The test car was seen sporting camouflage covering its entire body, but that didn’t stop Holiday Auto (HA) from producing some CG images of what they expect the Fuga to look like.

HA say that the upcoming Fuga will borrow heavily from the Nissan Essence concept car as shown at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. With pronounced and flowing front and rear guards, the design should incorporate many design cues from the Essence, particularly at the rear where the trunk shut lines and tail lights intersect, as well as incorporating a similar molded trunk spoiler. So too the headlights may vary only slightly from the Essence concept car and the side profile may even incorporate the Essence concept car’s unusual side window sill detail.
That doesn't look nearly as good as the Essence concept.

2011 Infiniti M Makes Virtual Debut

Infiniti today provided an advanced look at the all-new 2011 Infiniti M performance luxury sedan at the 59th Annual Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. This is the third generation of Infiniti's popular M and the first to be sold across all of Infiniti's 32 markets around the world, including Western Europe.

Like the current Infiniti M, the next-generation design will be offered with V8 and V6 engines. The 2011 M models will be designated the Infiniti M56 and Infiniti M37 respectively, reflecting their more powerful, larger displacement engines. The M56 V8 is expected to offer more than 400 horsepower. For Western Europe, the M56 will be replaced by a V6 performance diesel.

The 2011 Infiniti M also features a completely redesigned body, with authentic sports sedan proportions and evocative new styling with a low front end and deeply sculpted fenders inspired by the Infiniti Essence concept car. The new M interior promises to be pure Infiniti, highlighted by the use of innovative materials, an advanced climate control system, superior audio and an enhanced quality feel. Despite improved performance from the new engine lineup, fuel consumption will be reduced.

In addition, the 2011 M will continue Infiniti's technology innovation leadership with a blind spot intervention system. This industry-first system is designed to help alert the driver if another vehicle is detected in an adjacent lane during an intended lane change, and then help assist the driver in returning the vehicle toward the center of the original lane of travel.

The 2011 Infiniti M, which is scheduled to go on sale across the world starting from spring 2010, was revealed through a unique "video mapping" process – in which a "virtual M" was created on a 3D form. It is the world's first "virtual only" (no physical vehicle) automotive application of this cutting-edge technology. The 2011 Infiniti M will make its official public debut later this year.





Wow, I like it. A LOT.

yeahp! i fell in love with the M when we rented one for a family trip down to USC. it was a '06 M35 sport, and that thing was one of the nicest cars i've ever sat in, to my liking. so much space, and it drives as fast as it looks. an M would be my next ideal car to get after my celica.

I've always liked the M. I rented an M35x for a couple days and it was a great car.

The interior of the new one looks pretty similar to the old, from what I recall. They've just boosted the engines up a bit.

New one looks like a 2nd gen that went to the gym. I actually like to simple lines of the 1st generation, but I'm probably an old fart.
