Infiniti barely exists in Europe (even less than Lexus) - it's mostly a brand for NA. I suspect this G will end like the E90 3er, with a lot of unsold stock at the end of the last model year. Current one goes back to the 07 model year, one of the oldest designs still on the market. There will be some lease bargains no doubt. The unseen G25 will be even cheaper.

I saw them as Skylines in Jamaica.

Might be private imports - Jamaica gets a lot of those. I checked the site and it isn't listed by Nissan Jamaica.
Europe has the Infiniti brand, but the dealership numbers are low, and demand is similar. With the very diverse local offerings (and sometimes iffy styling), it can't be an easy sell.

private imports translated: drug lord gray market import.

Exactly. Probably makes for fun car spotting anyway.

hmmm...so the ideal Lexus owner is a 35 year old who dyes his hair to look older, marries a model, and drives himself to red carpet events? Unique demographic.
Still doesn't look terribly "new" to me, and I wonder what Hyundai execs paid Lexus designers to defect and create the Equus.

Not that I follow them but I'd expect to see Fiskers (*) and Teslas at red carpet events.
* Fiskers that are not currently on fire.

But driven by hired help, and used immediately after the passenger got off a thirsty private jet.

The last Steven Seagal film I watched leaned toward the green movement, but the funny thing is it had more explosions than any other action film.
Dude got heavy and even started singing country. Yikes.
