I think it looks pretty damn nice! What would put it over the top is if it will be RWD but as far as I know it could still be FWD.

I'm not crazy about it but it will probably sell well. Coupes are definitely coming back with a vengeance. Now about that RWD Cadillac Eldorado Coupe.......

It's nice but that side view reminds me of a 350z.

270hp with a CVT transmission. That might actually hurt some of the 350 sales for those folks looking for a back seat.

I like it for what it is.....and from what its coming from.

It's a Z/G, with like 10% Monte Carlo... and that makes a bad combo. Ugly.

If its built like the other 2002 and later Nissans, it'll be a heap of crap.

Nissan peaked with the 1990 Q45 and 300ZX. The frogtards have ruined everything.

I looked again...for more than a split second. The side shot is really bad.

I'm all for making a coupe version of an existing sedan (Fleetwood Brougham Coupe, Coupe deVille, Continental Town Coupe, etc etc) but man this is uggggllly!

I don't mind it all that much, but why go with this one when you can have an eerily similar 350-Z?

350Z does not have a back seat for one thing.

No point in having a back seat if there aren't enough doors.

All with more than seats in the front. I know this isn't going to make me popular with the Eldorado owners, so know that I have owned two of them (the last being a 98 ETC). They had a great backseat that was impossible to use. I would be embarrassed to ask anyone who would appreciate the luxury of it to climb into it. Completely pointless seating. Loved the exterior sailpanels and overall design, but the backseat was a waste. Should have had suicide doors or been designed a true coupe.

Almost bought a third, but between the back seat issue and being tired of FWD, I opted for the CTS and have never regretted it.

A 2+2 seater is still a true coupe.

Sedan
A closed automobile having two or four doors and a front and rear seat.






I know GM calls them coupes, but by definition they are 2 door sedans.

...and 2 door sedans are dumb. :p

its a stupid move and a totally unneccesary car (screw my spelling)
its a half breed of the 350z and g35. if you want more accutrements and a back seat but love the 350z then buy the g35. this car is basically a g35 from nissan (infiniti is just nissan's up brand) and it will degrade the g35 as far public view and accessibility (it would be like pontiac producing a car that looked real close to the cadillac cts).
lame.

We're supposed to start seeing them end of April. Apparently, according to my sales manager, the salespeople have taken 5 deposits down on them already if that's any indication.
