Ben Poore, Infiniti Americas vice president made the IPL G Convertible announcement at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance where the IPL G Convertible Concept was on display.
The IPL G Convertible Concept features the dynamic performance of an IPL-tuned V6, exhaust and suspension, 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, a three-piece retractable hardtop plus fresh aerodynamic styling. A striking red leather interior contrasts a Malbec Black exterior. The G Concept also contains a level of equipment and performance modification soon 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 built on the same foundation as the Infiniti G37 Convertible, featuring a 3.7-liter V6 and power retractable hardtop designed to look just as good with the top up as it does down.
"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."
The production model of the 2013 IPL G Convertible will be revealed at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November.
