I was so tied up with work last week that I’m only now getting around to commenting on an event Infiniti G Coupe fans have been waiting for since the G35 debuted back in 2003: Infiniti has confirmed the arrival of the G37 hard-top convertible this November as a 2009 model.
Unfortunately, now that the occasion is at hand, I find I’m disappointed by what I’ve seen so far. I’m less a fan of the G37 Coupe than I was of the G35 Coupe, appearance-wise. I thought the G35 was one of the most beautiful cars on the road, whereas I find the newer model suffers from the same different-but-not-better syndrome that turned me off of Microsoft Vista. My first impression of the convertible is further impaired by the photos posted on Autoblog, which suggest the rear deck may be marred by the same sort of unsightly creases that have afflicted BMW designs to varying degrees in recent years.
I’m hoping it’s just a bad angle, or unflattering lighting. Maybe I’ll like it better in person.
