Infiniti is reportedly working on two new flagship performance models that will have as much as 600 horsepower, according to remarks made by CEO Johan de Nysschen at the Detroit Auto Show.
At the show he stated there will be a “high-performance flagship positioned well above the Q70, and also a halo high-performance car for the brand.” It’s likely that one of the models will be a sedan, while the other halo model will be a coupe.

If you were hoping that Infiniti would release a production version of the Emerg-E or Essence concept cars, you’ll be disappointed to hear that neither model is slated for production. de Nysschen also stated that the coupe will not be midengined like the Emerg-E. “We’ve got to use the powertrain in more than one car for economies of scale reasons, so it can’t be midengined.”
