Infiniti wants its own M or AMG style brand

One of the coolest Infinity cars that has rolled off the assembly line in a long time is the rouge concept that surfaced in Detroit. It looks like Infiniti has plans for a performance subbrand in the future reports Auto News. There is no indication of exactly when in the future this subbrand might turn up.

"What is absent from our product structure today is a line of really thoroughbred, high-end performance cars that take no prisoners," says Johan de Nysschen, Infiniti worldwide president. "I don't say that every single Infiniti car line should have such a model. But I do say that we need a high-performance subbrand."

Infiniti President of Americans Michael Bartsch has also said that the automaker needs a performance brand. He said, "We need our own M brand or our own AMG. Infiniti has a performance mark already called IPL, but that doesn't mean the performance subbrand will carry that name.

2014 Infiniti QX80 AWD Test Drive

Jun 12 2014 12:20pm CDT | Source: autoMedia.com

The 8-inch touchscreen in the 2014 Infiniti QX80 showed our little yellow arrow moving nearer and nearer to the point on the rotating map where the narrow road would end. We took a hard right bend, adaptive headlights reaching around the dark corner before I did, and slowed; the road dipped and heavy rains had created a pond maybe 18 inches deep. Under normal circumstances, I would have reconsidered, but the Q ...
