Infiniti is reportedly considering a new pair of new platform-sharing sedan and coupe models to sit above the large M (soon to be known as the Q70).

Speaking to Car and Driver, Infiniti president Johan de Nysschen hinted at some of the details for a potential new flagship model.

“Above Q70 you need a car that competes with 7 Series, S-Class, and Audi A8,” Mr de Nysschen said.

“I don’t think the world needs another car like that. But I do think the world needs an upscale, very emotional, high-performance luxury sedan from Infiniti that might be a different concept.”

Mr de Nysschen is also believed to have ruled out a V8 powerplant in future Infiniti models, despite a bent eight being available in the current FX SUV in Australia.

Therefore, a future luxury sedan and coupe would most likely feature a V6 engine, possibly turbo charged.

While the sedan will represent a new top-shelf passenger offering, the big coupe will represent more a lifestyle model, a grand tourer.

Mr de Nysschen offered no details on either model, although he added that the coupe would not draw any inspiration from the advanced Emerg-E concept - that would likely be too expensive.

“The world isn’t ready for a $200,000 Infiniti,” Mr Nysschen said.
