Infiniti Q60 Concept: First Look

16256387481_e07cc6d682

Looks like: The next-gen Q60 coupe

Defining characteristics: In-your-face grille and sculpted curves

Ridiculous features: None; it looks production ready.

Chance of being mass-produced: One hundred percent and the production model should look a lot like the concept, according to Infiniti.

There's nothing pie in the sky about Infiniti's latest concept, the Q60, which bowed at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. According to the automaker, it previews what the next Q60 coupe will be in terms of styling and powertrains.

"This I can tell you is about 90 percent. Many of the things — the front view, the very strong shoulder, the sculpted artistry of the body — this is very close to the production," Alfonso Albaisa, Infiniti executive design director, said in a statement.

Outside, its sharp front edges, double arch grille, broad shoulders and strong character line that runs the length of the body combine for an imposing stance — one much more aggressive than the current Q60 coupe wears. It rides on low-profile 21-inch wheels with matte-black and high-gloss black chrome spokes, adding to the menacing look.

Do Men Buy the Volkswagen Beetle?

Beetle1

Let's take a trip back to November 2010 when talk-show host Oprah Winfrey announced that everyone in her audience would be receiving a redesigned 2012 Volkswagen Beetle, though the design was kept under wraps at the time. It seemed an obvious choice for Volkswagen to call on the Beetle's trusty female base to create excitement about its iconic "chick car."

Months later, when the 2012 Beetle emerged from under wraps in an advertisement announcing, "It's a boy," people were talking about the car's masculine look. A streamlined, flattened body and removal of the previous model's bubbly, cute features (ahem, flower vase) sparked talk about VW abandoning its female-centric look to appeal to more buyers.

"The current-generation Beetle was designed to be a modern reinterpretation of the original model," Darryll Harrison Jr., Volkswagen's public relations manager, said in an email. "The current design is also bolder than the outgoing model ... successfully bringing more customers into the VW family."

At water coolers and online, men cheered the move, but did they buy it? With a couple years of sales under its belt, we took a look at the Beetle's numbers to see if its newfound masculinity paid off.
