Report: Infiniti considering coupe and convertible M variants

2011 Infiniti M37

The Infiniti M is becoming a strong competitor in the mid-size luxury sedan segment, giving Mercedes-Benz’s E-Class and BMW’s 5-Series a little something to worry about. However, Infiniti has yet to offer a competitor to the E-Class coupe and convertible and the 6-Series coupe and convertible.

With that in mind, Nissan executives are now discussing the possibility of expanding the 2011 Infiniti M lineup with a sedan and convertible offering of the model. According to Inside Line, Infiniti believes this to be a necessary move to compete seriously in the segment.

The Infiniti Essence concept car is expected to heavily influence the design of the M coupe, including its unusual B-pillar and front fender side vents.

Expect both engines from the M37 and the M56 to be offered in the coupe and convertible.
