Infiniti may as well be dead honestly, anything after the G35/37, M, FX is all trash. As for the Stinger and G70, great cars, probably will sell in very small numbers.
source eh ... my eyes

stinger is dead, I have seen one. how many red sports have you seen? I don't remember seeing one. G cars are 10+ yrs old and there is nothing in the pipeline. Nissan is at the verge of bankrupcy. When have you visited their site last time?
Sorry man. I like my info to be factual, not anecdotal. The health professional in me I guess. Agreed though, Nissan has been going down the crapper, especially for the enthusiast. Although, oddly (as archaic as the 370z is) they sell one of the last remaining naturally aspirated, higher revving, higher horsepower (relatively), RWD, manual transmission sports cars.

Up until this new RDX, Acura hadn't made a proper car since the TL!

Probably a render but I'm sure it's quite close to the real thing.

Acura hasn't been able to get its grille design right since the TL in my opinion. This is better than the beak days but still looks goofy, almost caricature-like. Rest of the car looks nice, especially toward the rear.

They are the real thing. They were found within the RDX's software coding. So expect the next TLX and MDX to look like this.

My girl picked up a TLX A spec a few months ago.

I agree it's just an 'ok' car. Pretty boring drive from a performance standpoint. The auto is slow AF. The dash and controls are a mess. Lane keep isn't as good as other brands. The stereo sucks. Everytime I hustle it on a back road or 2 lane it gives me the collision warning flash on the windshield.

The positives are the v6 sounds better than my f80 when you rev it out. And when your cruising it is very relaxing and quiet inside. It looks better than the accord. You can get a red interior.

Hopefully the new type s will be a real competitor to the m340i. Although I'm worried the price may be a bit north of 55k.

The blue on the new TLX looks just like long beach blue on the M2...

I really hope one day Acura actually puts a hot engine in the A spec or a type S. Throwing some body kits on a car doesn't do it anymore.

God i love my Supercharged Acura RSX Type S but these cars have become so boring over the years.

I can't agree more. I despised the old beak as it was one of the worst grilles in automobile history and while this is an improvement it's still not an attractive design. The massive acura emblem smack dab in the middle definitely doesn't help as something just looks off with the look.

Acura will probably still disappoint in some big way somehow.

I really like the new Supra. I like that they're making a 4-cylinder version and going downmarket. The world needs more cheaper sports cars.

But ffuuuuu.....The six-cylinder Supra is fast enough that it can comfortably ignore the 370Z. The 4-banger though? Its $10K more expensive and has 75 less horsepower than the Nissan. Any way you slice it, that's a steep price to pay for a chassis/interior from this decade.

The "base" looking model is not very flattering. Could be a new Honda Accord if it weren't for the badge, the leaked photos of the type-s with blacked out trim and larger wheels look much better, and if the RDX is any indicator the materials on the interior will be very nice, just wish Acura would push towards full luxury status with a RWD platform.

I REALLY REALLY hope this is not the underpinnings for the next Accord. I have such high hopes for this car, and anything shared with the Accord would just be...ugh. I get it from a bean counter perspective but if they ever want to compete on a higher luxury level, they need to take more risks and diversify the platform.

100% agreed, I am still waiting for a sedan that I would really like to own from Acura. I know they can do it but they don't for some reason.
