Infiniti Q80: A Concept, Right?

It’s going to be a few weeks until Infiniti reveals the Q80 Inspiration at the Paris Motor Show, at the Parc des Expositions de Versailles on October 2, but they have released this photographic tease: The company says “Its very dimensions place the Q80 Inspiration clearly at the peak of the Infiniti range,” and while they didn’t provide those dimensions, given the fact that it is an “80” and presently the largest number in the sedan lineup is “70,” it is a bigger car.

The company says “Its very dimensions place the Q80 Inspiration clearly at the peak of the Infiniti range,” and while they didn’t provide those dimensions, given the fact that it is an “80” and presently the largest number in the sedan lineup is “70,” it is a bigger car. The Q70L is 202-in. long and has a 120.1-in. wheelbase, so presumably it is somewhat longer than that.

Infiniti describes the Q80 Inspiration as a “low-slung, ingeniously aggressive four-passenger fastback.” Given the roofline of this image, “low-slung” seems to be an understatement. And that makes it seem as though at least two of those four-passengers are going to have to be rather short or they’re going to be enduring a crooked neck.

But after all, it is a concept, n’est-ce pas?
