Is the M45 now called Q60/Q50

Postby 2007infinitim45s » Tue Jul 16, 2019 10:50 pm

hey, just wondering wether the M45 was discontinued or is now known under a different name I read somewhere maybe here on niccoclub that its now known as either the Q50/60 is this true or did they just stop making them and not change the name?

That's the G series. G37 sedan (correction) was renamed to Q40 briefly. The G sedan was replaced by the Q50, the new coupe is the Q60

The M45 and M35 were replaced by the M56 and M37. The flagship sedan was renamed Q70 in 2014 as Infiniti renamed their entire lineup.

So yeah, the M45 was discontinued after 2010.

5 years later, Infiniti's re-naming is still idiotic.

Used to be able to look at an Infiniti and know what series and what motor it had when sitting behind it at a light. Now, if you are behind a Q70 at a light, you have no idea if they are a peasant with a 3.7L V6 or boss with a 5.6L V8.

Pretty easy to tell still what kinda of infiniti someone has, usually the nicer ones have bigger wheels and additional body trim, it always gives it away..but lets consider they did continue the old naming nomenclature..new Q50 and Q60 would be G30 and G30 coupe respectively lol

Top of the line M56 > top of the line M37. Exterior doesn't always say what's under the hood.

I wonder what name changes they have in mind now that Infiniti plan to go to drop all petrol cars and build only electric cars? Maybe they will all be called E-something?

i agree if i did own the boss version i would probably throw on a V8 Badge on it on the opposite side of the Q70 emblem
