The future direction of the Infiniti Performance Line (IPL), launched at the recent Paris motor show, is hanging in the balance.
The firm’s sporting line was launched with a more potent version of the G coupé, and Infiniti showed an IPL G cabrio concept at Paris.
However, the company is said to be deciding how far to push the brand and is considering everything from styling and performance parts to full-blown models that are assembled on the production line alongside regular cars, just as BMW’s M division makes its vehicles.
The recently launched M saloon — the first incarnation of that car to take Europe into account — has the potential to become a full IPL model. It’s already sold in some markets with a 5.6-litre V8.
