Brief History of Infiniti
Infiniti’s design and performance cravings have earned it reference as ‘Japanese BMW’. Rumor has it that in 2001 after a series of poor sales, Infiniti executives swore never to take their eyes off BMW for design inspiration.
Understanding Infiniti’s naming system
Infiniti uses an alphabet followed by two letters in naming its cars. The alphabet indicates the class of the car while the two letters show the engine capacity. These are sometimes followed by a small letter x, s, or h to indicate all-wheels drive, sports tuned and hybrid cars respectively. E.g. Infiniti ‘G35s’. Common Infiniti models include the M35, G45, Fx50.
