If thereÂ was one motto that the entire auto industry thrives on it would be:Â
Monkey See – Monkey Do.
So when the Monkey’s that See saw BMW put together their answer to the Audi Quattro series with their 335xi it was just a matter of time beforeÂ the Monkey’s that Do came out with their own entrant.Â Infiniti isÂ now planningÂ to step up to the challenge by offering up their G37 with their ownÂ all-wheel drive system.
While the timing for the AWD G37 has not been determined by the minds who make such decision at Nissan (the parent company of Infiniti), the M35 and G35 coupes are already scheduled to display their own AWD platforms in 2008. Thus making it easy to conclude that the G37 would not be far behind.
Inprice, performance and horsepower the G37 is already a strong competitor along side BMW and Audi. With the AWD G37 they would continue that competition and possible provided the cheapest of the three alternative brands. As noted over at Edmunds Inside Line, buying an Infiniti G37 AWD would be like getting the Nissan GT-R only half the car for half the price. I think I could live with that.
