Infiniti has announced that it will double its Infiniti Performance Line lineup of premium performance vehicles in the spring with the addition of a new 2013 IPL G convertible.
More than just focusing on engine power and acceleration, the Infiniti Performance Line (IPL) product design philosophy focuses on “total vehicle performance,” including unique driving attributes and exclusive exterior and interior features at highly attractive price points, according to a press release.
The IPL G convertible announcement was made by Ben Poore, Infiniti Americas vice president, at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance where the IPL G Convertible Concept was prominently displayed.
The concept features unique aerodynamic styling, the dynamic performance of an IPL-tuned V-6, exhaust and suspension, 19-inch IPL aluminum-alloy wheels, three-piece retractable hardtop and a unique red leather-appointed interior set against a Malbec Black exterior-a level of equipment and performance modification expected to be shared with the production IPL G convertible.
“The Infiniti Performance Line, as demonstrated by our first offering, the IPL G coupe, challenges the concept of an ultra-high-cost sports series. IPL pushes the premium performance envelope for buyers seeking a higher level of exclusivity and driving exhilaration, but does so with an Infiniti twist,” said Poore. “The IPL G convertible will deliver the goods, just like the current IPL G coupe does. Plus, the new IPL G convertible offers the added pleasure of open-air motoring.”
The new IPL G Convertible is based on the foundation of the Infiniti G37 convertible, which features an advanced 3.7-liter V-6 and three-piece power retractable hardtop.
“Like every Infiniti, the new IPL G convertible will take a different path from its established competitors,” added Poore. “It’s a terrific addition to the Infiniti Performance Line, taking the dramatic Infiniti G convertible to an even higher level.”
Additional information on the 2013 IPL G Convertible will be available during the production version debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November, according to the release.
