Looks like: Infiniti's take on the Porsche Panamera
Defining characteristics: Svelte hatchback profile, enormous wheels
Ridiculous features: No side mirrors, teardrop roof glass
Chance of being mass-produced: All but certain
Weeks ahead of October's Paris Motor Show, Infiniti revealed more details and one full image of a four-door coupe concept that previews a future flagship. It's the second time we've heard of the Q80 Inspiration, coming weeks after Nissan's luxury brand released a teaser image earlier this month. The latest image shows a sedan-meets-hatchback amalgamation with cab-rearward styling, a hybrid drivetrain and enormous wheels.
Absent side mirrors or door handles — substantial ones, at least — the Q80 Inspiration's lines run hollow along the sides but widen into a larger rear end with some interesting taillight visuals. Rear-hinged doors open at the B-pillars, and 22-inch wheels fill the fenders. The glass roof extends down the rear into a sort of teardrop window, and the profile magnifies Infiniti's forward C-pillar kick, which we've seen in subtler form on the Q30 concept and Q50 production cars.
