The new Infiniti flagship could be called the Q80 or Q90 according to Motoring. To compete with the Porsche Panamera, the new Infiniti will be offered with two twin-turbocharged hybrid powertrains. The base version will mate a 3.0L turbocharged V6 to an electric powertrain, which should give the system a combined output around 550 horsepower. The top model will get a new 3.7L turbocharged V6 and an electric motor that will generate a whopping 700 horsepower. Both versions will send the power to the ground via the Nissan GT-R’s Attesa all-wheel drive system.
