Infiniti wows with its latest electric car concept

If you build it, they will come. Infiniti was hoping to save the official unveil of its Emerg-E concept car until next week's Geneva auto show, but the company has been kneecapped twice by leaks.
 
Nearly two weeks ago, the design of the vehicle was leaked via design patent drawings submitted to The Office of Harmonization for the Internal Market (OHIM). This weekend, however, The Full Monty was released in the form of official photos of the vehicle.
 
There isn't much to say about the official specs of the vehicle as we're still a week away from its official unveil, but it is known the that Emerg-E is a range-extended electric vehicle with a mid-mounted 1.2-liter gasoline engine to charge its batteries. Think of it as a Chevrolet Volt without the dumpy looks.
 
As for the styling of the Emerg-E, some say that it has a bit of Ferrari 458 Italia in its side profile and a bit of Lexus’ new “Predator” grille up front. However, the overall design of the vehicle should give the designers of the Acura NSX remake some sleepless nights.
 
For now, you can just ogle the pictures of Infiniti's supercar concept:

Interesting, looks like a Camaro.
However, exciting concept cars never make it to market. "Oh hi, look at this cool design we spent money on that you'll never be able to buy"

Yeah, can't you tell? A Camaro has 4 wheels and a windshield. Clearly a ripoff!

Obviously there are design elements ripped off from the iPad. Time to call the attorneys and have it banned from sale.

Agree.

-If you look at it from the top down it resembles a rectangle.
-While not touchscreen in the true sense you can indeed touch the glass windows
-I do not see any door handles, so I believe this would fall under minimalist button section

Thank you for the morning laugh... :)

That kind of "prior art" idea was good enough to get Samsung banned from selling tablets in Germany for a while...lol

I had to look like 12 times. Its like one of those magic eye pictures you have to squint and defocus and still don't see it.

To me it looks like the Corvette and Acura NSX had a child.

Yeah...I was thinking it looked like an evolution from the NSX myself. How you get Camaro out of that...I don't think I have that much alcohol. And I have a *lot* of alcohol.

He probably only ever sees pickups and Camaros, so yeah, I can see Camaro. If they painted it orange, it would resemble a 1969 Charger. ;)

One person posts it looks like an Eclipse, another says it looks like a Camaro, these people need to get their eyes checked like right now.

I always forget about Japan being one of those places. I know Japan, UK and Australia are right side drive, are there any others?
