    Infiniti Q60 Project Black S

    Theres something still q tempting about the car . If and its a BIG if the car plummets in the next 24 months then it may be worth considering It will be interesting to monitor no of sales/cars on the second hand market; it may in fact drop off in 2019 and 2020 in a similar fashion to the 370z sales dropping although it appears that there are now 370s on Autotrader then 350s. There are an increasing number of Mk2 nismo 370s and I do recall the Mk1 never really being as abundant . If the Q60 sales figs decline then there may not be much to choose from on the second hand market.

    This is what I have in mind. I think due to its rarity I have a feeling it will age q well too so won't look like a second hand bargain (if the prices did drop). Ive never been a fan of debadging but I think from the rear the Q60s is positioned right next to the lights and removing that gives a cleaner look . I would keep the Infiiniti logo and lettering beneath tho . Im not a fan of darker coloured cars though so if the car did become a second hand proposition then the red would be the only option (silver is my fav on the Q60 but they are v rare and will likely continue to be). The debadging and new wheels would be essential mods I would make

    This might sound hard to believe but I've had 2 people say that from the front the Nismo has a Ferrari look to it (!) and that that if in red it would have that resemblance lol I do not se it myself but the front head lights when viewed from the side have a very sporty look compared to the TT and many other cars on the road Back to the Q60 and from the Paris Motor show it appears that the Q60s Concept is still a concept. It's still loaded with tech such as drive by wire braking in addition to drive by wire steering . I have started to lose hope in the Infiniti brand tbh. Im starting to think that the Lexus RCF is better proposition on the 2nd hand market (thought Im not convinced by the carbon edition). Dare I say it but the Kia Stinger seems to be less flawed than the Q60 3.0. Your thoughts?

    Ride Comfort

    I totally relate and agree with this and your prev post Coming from a Polo GTI 6R 2012 I find that the Nismo suspension is NOT as stiff BUT there is way more structural rigidity from left/right, front/rear and top/bottom of the car - in fact due to the width it handles bumps / humps more easily then the Polo GTI which was very narrow in comparison Its not like latest hothatches that provide the best of all worlds. The Nismo is not the kind of car that you can just hoon around town in partly due to the road surfaces, narrow streets etc. I drive it in London and its fine I think that there would be more of an issue with a Lotus Exige , Alfa 4C - honestly the Nismo feels like a sporty GT car Added tip: avoid multi storey car parks. Its not the bays that will be the issue but the spiral ramps entering/exiting

    Yes the 20" rims for the 2018 Q60 in USA look q nice. Tbh I think this car had potential to really launch Infiniti in the UK. It is no longer on my shortlist of potential future cars unfortunately

    Corvette C7 Stingray Residuals (2014 >)

    Im def going to be keeping on an eye on these in coming 24 months. If by then 2014-2016 models drop to late £30ks/early 40ks with <15/20000 miles then it would be v tempting eps when you consider £40k gets you a decade old Audi R8 4.2 with similar miles currently

    Whats your opinion on the rims - do they suit the car or would you replace? Stateside people seem to put Vossens on them which seem to suit the car well Also your opinion on the infotainment system? Is it that bad

    My 370z Nismo gets mistaken for a Porsche all the time so sometimes mistaken identity doesnt bother me lol Guess the issue is when the car being purchased is mistaken for something considerably cheaper

    yea the second hand market for LHD mustangs really became a buyers market since the RHD release. I do actually remember pre RHD mustang and the imported cars did hold their values relatively well. I do recall also there being a lot more on the market then Corvettes (maybe double); so I actually think it would be a bit more risky to for GM to release a RHD Corvette then Ford release a RHD Mustang taking into account UK Corvette demand doesn't match Mustang demand. The Mustang can be incorporated into practical family car and doesn't have the Porsche as a direct competitor. On a similar side note the success of the Mustang is pronounced compared to the poor sales past few years that of the Camaro. So much in the US in fact that Camaro values are really taking a hit over here. Wont be long till the current generation Cameo will drop. I actually anticipate this to drop first into a tempting price point before the C7 Corvette.

    And tbf Jaguar do a similar red colour too. I think the case of mistaken identity will only occur in the flagship red so getting that colour will be a double edged sword - less likely with black or silver; the latter of which I really like as the chrome parts of the body blend in well. Though the red is more striking I just would be appalled that it could get mistaken for something else

    There will be a few factors that will/may play out in the following few yrs that will determine the depreciation of the C7 Stingray Eventual release and cost of the C8 Corvette If the C8 is released in RHD as some rumours suggest: as a reference the previous generation mustang literally plummeted in value upon the release of the RHD current mustang Value of pound as noted above What are your thoughts on the F-type as an alternative? These are dropping now to the late 30ks mark. Is it me or do they not seem as special as when they first came out?

    Infiniti Q60 Project Black S

    Ive got the same idea in my head (along with possibly a Corvette Stingray 2014/15 once the new C8 comes out in 2020 - but that's another topic) . Back to the Q60 the only thing that's putting another doubt in my mind is how may be mistaken for this …. without sounding like a badge snob the last thing I want is someone saying nice Mazda

    For me the current Q60 is a v nearly/ what if car. Mainly the drive by wire steering being a concern. then the ugly rims and lastly dated infotainment system My only issue with that segment is that a lot of cars are really looking q generic . That said I would like to look at the Q60 side by side with an AMG C Class Coupe

    Nismo on its way.

    Funny you mentioned this... I parked up outside of work revving the engine few times near the window approx 10 feet from where my colleague would have been sat. Walked in and he said he couldn't hear a thing lol In the same room another co workers 2.0 turbo unit from thwe Scirocco R and TSI are both heard q loudly
