Recent reports that Nissan’s luxury arm Infiniti will refocus on volume-selling models could see projects like the electric LE and Q50 Eau Rouge halo sedan shelved.

But, with an all-new Q60 Coupe on the way, there may yet be hope for a performance hero in the range. A Q60 Eau Rouge, perhaps.

But, while the Q50 Eau Rouge project has focused on developing an ultra-expensive, low-volume sedan version of Nissan’s GT-R, the Q60 team might instead look to a more accessible approach.

It is already known that the Q60 Coupe concept is specified with a twin-turbo 3.0 litre petrol-electric hybrid system, related to the 410kW unit that powered the earlier and larger Q80 four-door coupe.

Push a similar system to production in the coming Q60, bolt on the requisite performance parts and aero kit, and Infiniti might just have a BMW M4 rival in its pocket.

Above: the Q60 Coupe concept in its regular form, revealed in Detroit earlier this year.

This new rendering by independent artist Theophilus Chin offers an idea of what we could see with a Q60 Eau Rouge model - based, of course, on the earlier Q50 Eau Rouge sedan concept.

For now, the carmaker has yet to confirm any plans for a halo model in the next Q60 range, but a high-powered flagship could go a long way toward building the Infiniti brand’s image with buyers.
