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:

yep, this seems to be the better NSX... too bad that most cars seem to lose about 50% of their initial prettiness when they hit showrooms.

We need 90's Chrysler design back. They would bring out crazy designs and put them into production pretty much untouched (Viper, Prowler, Ram).

Interestingly enough, the time period you are refering to was one of the most success in Chrysler's history and spurred multiple take-over attempts.

and if only chrysler's quality and engineering were similar to their old designs... unfortunately, it seems to be similar to their current ones.

But not 50% of the cost, sadly lol.

This looks like a Lexus that looks like a Ferrari and will probably cost almost as much as one. To that I say, what's the point? Just go for the real thing not some Toyota trying to be an exotic car.

Edit Infinity = Nissan, not Toyota.

Clearly you haven't seen the Lexus LFA(which stomps the guts out of the Audi R8 in all categories) or the R35 Skyline(I refuse to call it a GT-R). Nissan and Toyota are quite capable of delivering and exceeding the "real thing."
