More details on these vehicles will be available closer to on-sale date.INFINITI previews its future showroomFrom the beginning, INFINITI has worked to redefine the relationship between car and driver, starting with the customer experience in the showroom. When INFINITI arrived on the market, other luxury brands at that time were perceived as unattainable, and INFINITI seized the opportunity to champion a more inclusive environment with a distinctively warm and welcoming atmosphere that continues to draw people in today.The Inspiration line offers a preview of forthcoming production models, as well as a glimpse into the company’s vision to blend performance and electrification. The advent of electrified platforms heralds a fresh approach to what crossovers and sedans could look like. With new exterior proportions, electrified powertrains allow for additional interior space, enabling spacious and lounge-like interiors.INFINITI celebrates heritage at second-annual Japanese Automotive InvitationalFor the second consecutive year, INFINITI, in collaboration with MotorTrend Group, will host the Japanese Automotive Invitational. Bringing even more diversity to the premier automobile celebration, this special event is dedicated to Japanese automotive innovation, design, performance and rich car culture.This year’s Invitational will showcase 54 historically significant Japanese cars in eight different categories: Race, Truck, Roadster, GT, Hot Hatch, Sports, Luxury and Sedan. INFINITI vehicles on display include:1993 INFINITI Q45t: Introduced as the flagship luxury sedan to launch the INFINITI brand in 1989, the Q45’s distinctive minimalist styling featured a confident design that allowed it to do away with traditional cues like oversized front grilles and exotic wood interiors.1991 INFINITI M30: As a companion to the Q45 sedan, the M30 was part of INFINITI’s launch in 1989.1994 INFINITI J30: For the 1994 model year, INFINITI introduced its second luxury sedan, the J30.2004 INFINITI G Coupe: For almost as long as there has been an INFINITI Motor Company, a sports coupe has been integral to its model line.2003 INFINITI FX45: At its debut in 2003, the INFINITI FX became one of the industry’s first performance crossovers.The evolution of the INFINITI performance coupe: Visitors to this year’s Japanese Automotive Invitational will also get to see the iconic and influential 1963 Prince Skyline Sport. The Prince Motor Company, arguably Japan’s first luxury automotive brand, launched the legendary Skyline sedan and wagon in 1957 and added the Gloria luxury sedan in 1959. Prince later merged with Nissan Motor Company, Ltd. in 1965 and influenced the dynamic styling found on INFINITI vehicles today.The evolution of the INFINITI performance coupe: Visitors to this year’s Japanese Automotive Invitational will also get to see the iconic and influential 1963 Prince Skyline Sport.

Designed by famed Italian sports car designer Giovanni Michelotti, the Prince Skyline Sport inspired much of today’s craftsmanship and performance that foreshadowed INFINITI’s most impressive coupes, including the M30, G35, G37 and Q60. Many of the styling cues of the Prince Skyline Sport, such as the double arch grille and crescent cut rear quarter window, are the inspiration for INFINITI’s current exterior designs and are inherent in many of today’s models including the Q50 and Q60.The Japanese Automotive Invitational is located adjacent to the INFINITI Pavilion and is open to visitors with no additional tickets required.The INFINITI Project Black S makes an appearance on the iconic Concept Lawn|
