Smile G37S owner new to the forum

i have a 2008 G37S that i acquires used a few years ago. its a 6 speed manual shift model. it handles and moves great!

i wanted a Porshe 911, but the Infiniti was one third the cost, and IMHO handled way better, and had more creature comforts, while still having that sports car feel and performance.
so what if it isnt as noisey as a 911
It now has around 85K miles, and i might consider getting a newer model, so Q60 comes to mind.
i will have to check the Infiniti website to see if the 2017 models have a manual transmission and a perfomance version

any comments are welcom

So this reply seems late... but the performance version you speak of is the Red Sport. It has the 3.0 liter V6 with twin turbos, producing about 400 HP and 350 lbs/torque. Although you can also purchase the 3.0t... which has the same exact engine, but running different software that bottlenecks the horsepower down to 300... however, soon tuner shops will have the ability to "flash" those chips to unlock the full 400 just like the Red Sport. Sadly, Infiniti only sold 2% of the older model Q60's with a manual transmission, so they decided not to even offer a manual transmission for the 2017 version. Having said that though, the new automatic transmissions have improved a lot so they launch pretty well... they're just not AS fun. Still fun though. I'm hoping in a couple of years they may release an IPL version of the Q60, and MAYBE... just maybe reintroduce a manual shift transmission. I would absolutely love that.

I'm late to this party as well. Welcome aboard! And thank you for signing up. Yes, the Q60 Red Sport (not necessarily red ) is what you're looking for...
