Infiniti has confirmed it will reveal a clear look at its next-generation Q60 coupe at January’s Detroit Auto Show, offering a first glimpse at a new concept today.

The Q60 badge first appeared earlier this year as part of Infiniti’s range-wide rebranding, which saw its G, M, FX and EX badges replaced with a new Q and QX nomenclature.

With the new Q50 midsized sedan replacing the previous G sedan, it’s the ageing G37 Coupe that now wears the Q60 badge.

Launched in 2006 internationally and 2012 in Australia, the current G37/Q60 coupe is now well overdue for a replacement.

An all-new model will surface in the coming year, but a preview concept will appear first January’s Detroit Auto Show.

"On January 13, you're going to see a concept car that's very, very, very, very close to the next Q60," Infiniti design boss Alfonso Albaisa told US magazine Motor Trend recently.

Fans can expect to again see the new Q60 debut as a two-door version of its sedan sibling, the Q50, although it is clear the carmaker will bless the new coupe with more sporting embellishments inside and out.

Earlier this year, former Infiniti boss Johan de Nysschen confirmed the new Q60’s connection with the Q50 sedan.

“The Q60 coupé will be an evolution of the Q50 saloon,” de Neysschen told the UK’s Auto Express.

“The car’s been pushed back as we need to fix the design language. We need more cohesion in our design language across the range.”

We'll also see styling cues - particularly the fin-like blade behind the front wheel arch - taken from the popular Q50 Eau Rouge sedan concept, which is also expected to make its way to limited production in the coming year.

Expect powertrains to mirror those offered with the Q50 sedan, which in Australia includes a 155kW/350Nm 2.0 petrol turbo and 125kW/400Nm 2.2 diesel, along with a 268kW/546Nm 3.5 petrol-electric hybrid engine.

In the US, the Q50 is also offered with the same 245kW 3.7 litre V6 that Australian buyers find in the 370Z coupe of Infiniti parent Nissan.

Watch for the Q60’s concept forebear to appear in January, ahead of a production launch likely to occur closer to 2016.
