2008 Infiniti G37 Coupe

2008 Infiniti G37
The 2008 Infiniti G37 Coupe is the update to the G35 Coupe (model years 2002 to 2007), a car that signaled Infiniti’s return to relevance -- of no small consequence -- and outsold the archrival BMW 3-series coupe by roughly 2 to 1. -- Dan Neil (Guy Spangenberg)

The car’s electronics are better integrated into the living space. The G37’s display is situated in its own binnacle into the upper dash. The multi-function rotary control is a bit of a reach from the driver’s seat but nothing you couldn’t get used to. The instruments and switches are backlighted in a cool violet. -- Dan Neil (Guy Spangenberg)

The G37, as the moniker suggests, has a redesigned interior and exterior, and lots of fancy-schmanzy technology. -- Dan Neil (Guy Spangenberg)

The G37’s big lens is its hot new engine, a stroked version of the sedan’s 3.5-liter with Nissan/Infiniti’s Variable Valve Event and Lift (VVEL) cylinder heads, producing 270 pound-feet of torque at 5,200 rpm. -- Dan Neil (Guy Spangenberg)

This is a handsome, well-tempered driving machine, powerful but civilized. And, unlike a few other Japanese sports coupes that feel like the compromised sum of a thousand considerations tabulated and averaged, the G37 has got some charisma. -- Dan Neil (Guy Spangenberg)

Putting the power down in tight, low-speed corners will sometimes overwhelm the limited-slip differential and the stability control light will flicker, but mostly, the G37 seems unusually connected to the road. The oversized 19-inch sport tires certainly help. -- Dan Neil (Guy Spangenberg)

On the outside, the G37 quietly evolves the previous design. The biggest difference is the large lighting instruments -- headlights and taillights -- that envelop the cars’ corners in Zircon sparkle. -- Dan Neil (Guy Spangenberg)
