Key reasons why? The powertrain used in these models is comprised of an award-winning engine that Infiniti built for years, other major driveline components look very solid, and as a Japanese car, the models appear pleasantly free of the sort of wiring, electronic, and computer-related gremlins that can plague many a German competitor as they age.

The Sticky

Infiniti’s coupe packed standard V6 power, a high-quality interior, plenty of upscale feature content, and unmistakable looks. A convertible variant joined the model line as well.

Standard or Sport models were on offer, the latter designated by a red “S” in the name badge (i.e. G37S or Q60S), and featured upgraded suspension, tires, brakes, and other provisions. Added exclusivity and power came from the rare, low-volume IPL variants.

With two doors and four seats, the G37 / Q60 Coupe and Convertible were somewhat more practical and spacious than comparable two-seat luxury performance models. Feature content included navigation, push-button start, a premium Bose stereo, automatic xenon lighting, a sunroof, climate-controlled leather seating, and more.

All models got Infiniti’s VQ37VHR V6 engine, which displaces 3.7 litres and generates 330 horsepower on most models. To the delight of enthusiast drivers, this engine loves to spin fast, and flaunts a 7,500 rpm redline. It also sounds killer with a quality aftermarket exhaust. The IPL variants saw 348 horsepower, thanks to several engine and breathing tweaks. Shoppers could choose from a seven-speed paddle-shift automatic or a six-speed manual, depending on the model selected. Rear-wheel drive was standard, and all-wheel drive (AWD) was available, though only with the automatic transmission, and not in the IPL variants.

When it was brand-spanking new, the Infiniti G37 Coupe relieved owners of about $48,000 for starters, with higher-end units, like the Sport, pushing that figure beyond $50,000. Various packages and options allowed owners to push the price higher still.

Midway through the model’s life cycle, the IPL version debuted, the IPL Convertible once commanding a starting price of over $67,000.

2018 Infiniti Q50 Red Sport 400: The Underdog Has Bite

  2018 Infiniti Q50 Red Sport 400: The Underdog Has Bite If your company is competing in the compact luxury sedan segment and it’s not named BMW, Audi or Mercedes-Benz, then you’re an underdog. Sure, you might find a top ten list here or there with the odd outsider besting the big three Germans, but for the most part, they remain …Infiniti has given a valiant effort toward unseating the usual winners in this category. The 2018 Q50 is one of their best to date and receives an update this year. There is a new trim level naming scheme meaning you’ll have the choice between Luxe, Sport or Red Sport 400. The visual modifications aren’t major, but the trained eye may be able to notice them.

The following model year ( 2008 ), the G 37 coupe came out, catching up to the sedan. Now in the 2014 model year, Infiniti has again changed the G badge - but more significantly. Now all G 37 models go by either Q50 or Q 60 .

Here’s a low-mileage 2015 Q60 with AWD on offer for under $29,000. And another, for under $26,000. That’s about half of the original value at just four years old. You could spend more on a Civic!

A major part of the appeal with a used Q60 / G37 is what appears to be the long-term reliability of these machines. With proven drivelines and technologies, and Japanese (not German) wiring and electronics, most trouble areas common in modern used luxury performance cars haven’t proven to be much of an issue for owners.

That said, long-term reliability is hugely a function of how well the vehicle was driven, maintained, and cared for by past owners, so shoppers are advised to seek out a used copy with full service records that prove all oil changes, servicing, tune-ups, and maintenance were carried out on time, as per the maintenance schedule in the owner’s manual.

Further, as these machines are popular candidates for modification, it’s important to note that the average shopper is best to avoid a model that’s fitted with non-factory suspension parts, engine modifications, or computer software, for maximum peace of mind. Intake and exhaust upgrades are typically no cause for alarm, provided the parts and installation are of high quality, though more extensive modifications can cause headaches.

Other checks are fairly standard: assume any used model you’re considering needs new tires and brakes until you confirm otherwise, and work with a dealer to ensure any applicable recall work has been completed, for maximum safety and peace of mind. You’ll need the VIN number.

Scrutinize the condition of the vehicle’s paint and finish, noting that many owners have been disappointed by poor durability from the paint on their machines. Check the headlights for signs of yellowing, haze, or discoloration, too, as this will affect the performance of the headlights. Check that all interior surfaces are in good shape, and be on the lookout for excessive wear of the leather seats, bubbling of the dashboard surface, and peeling or chipping of steering-wheel trim.

Infiniti Suggests Next Q50, Q60, Q70 Will Lose RWD Platform

  Infiniti Suggests Next Q50, Q60, Q70 Will Lose RWD Platform The trio is expected to get a standard all-wheel-drive layout with a rear-biased setup. Nissan’s premium brand Infiniti is getting ready to embrace a new era by switching to a different platform with electrification in mind and standard all-wheel drive. However, it will take a while before that will happen as the company’s product strategy vice-president, Francois Bancon, told GoAuto that new-gen models will not arrive before 2021. Why? Because the architecture won’t be ready until then.

The downside to all of this is that the design hasn't been changed significantly since 2008 , and while it's still At times the 2015 Infiniti Q 60 Coupe and Convertible can feel like well-dressed sport coupes, and at other times they can feel quite lean and edgy for a vehicle with a full-fledged luxury badge.

Run all electronics through their paces, including all remote keyfobs, the push-button start, the motorized seat adjustments, and the central command system. Problems in these areas are unlikely, but a few have been reported. Further, drivers are advised to confirm that the air conditioner is working properly, too.

By and large, powertrain reliability looks to be mainly a function of maintenance. No major issues seem reported by owners with enough frequency to warrant much concern, though ensuring the engine, AWD system, and transmission are all properly serviced and running fresh fluid at all times, tends to go a long way towards a worry-free driving experience.

The Verdict

The last complete generation of Infiniti’s G37 / Q60 makes a compelling springtime sports-car buy, thanks to highly reasonable resale costs and above-average reliability, as premium performance coupes go. Have any unit you’re considering inspected fully by a trained technician before your purchase. With a clean bill of health, the G37 / Q60 Coupe and Convertible seem to make for a thrilling used ride that you can buy with confidence.
