Infiniti Etherea Concept.




Inifiniti claims we’ll a production version of this pretty soon.
It would compete with the Audi A3, BMW 1 and the new Lexus CT 200h.

The C pillar does look a little weird, at least on these 80’s looking press pictures.

But otherwise, it could turn out really nice.

We’ll see…

  1. Most of Infiniti's lineup is very good looking; Love the G37, M35 etc. However, from viewing the renderings, this is a very bizarre looking car all the way from the head lamps to the zigzag design towards the end of the last window.

  2. @ Anonymous who said "No surprise it is hideous incoherent mess like all other recent Nissan designs"

    Word.

  3. Not quite my cup of tea but at least it's origional. The last thing this world needs is another generic Toyonda Civerolla

  4. Good god. It looks like a bug that's going to spit goo on me… then rip my head off and eat me.

    Seriously tho, the headleamps look way too much like sleepy eyes, and that grille is the mouth of some sort of nasty insect. Or a crab. Very bizarre.The rest of it is a mess also. Especially the ghettofabulous wheels.

  5. The front end looks like an elderly Mazda in need of a facelift. The smile is now a supercilious smirk.

    The rest is interesting. The 3/4 rear view is vaguely Panameric (yes, that's a word!).

  6. Was waiting for the 1st Urethra comment. Note that It also sports a drive by Catheter system.

    This is a concept people. Trying new ideas here. Concepts are used to guage interest and ideas. Some things I like about the styling and some I don't. And I really dont like the urinary tract sounding name.

  7. I don't like it either, but I do like the head and tail lights. They are the only thing that give this thing personality. The C-Pillar at least is an attempt to be different, and over all, I'd buy this over that newest ugly Lexus, but I wouldn't waste my money on either one of these things. The Japanese really need to up their game in styling! Next…

  8. It looks original, and I am sure the production model will look slightly different, without the quirks we see in concept cars.

  9. Actually, I like this car. I wouldn't call it a beauty, but especially the C-pillar is absolutely unique. And to get some attention in Europe this is a good way, I think. Infiniti is a hyper-niche-marque here, so this is the right choice.

  10. "Terrible. Should be called a Nissan Urethra."

    Hahahahaha. Its about time there was some humour on this site.

  11. More evidence Nissan "designers" must have it in for the company. This thing reaches new levels of Nissan-ugly
