How about the Engine and Transmission, I'm sure there are some software differences but I'm sure there are more common connections between the two cars then you think

ATS....neither of which would be on my short list if I were plunking down my own money. Strong rumors around that the ATS is falling short of GM's sales expectations and they're throwing trunk money at it.
that's the problem with American cars, they are always overpriced 10-30%. Someone said earlier Honda and Toyota overprice their cars 10-20%; that statement is crazy and nuts. If that is true, then let me revise my American car statement to overpriced 20-50%.
BMW also overprices things about 10-20%.
The horrific resale value of American metal is proof that the cars are overpriced to begin with, and then you can add the fact they always issue huge rebates.
#16040 of 16984 G- Convertible AWD?
Apr 30, 2013 (10:26 am)
So a bit of a different topic, but given the discussion of many types of cars. This may sound like a strange question, but living in the northeast, I much prefer AWD over RWD. Has anyone ever heard if Infiniti will build a AWD G convertible? Id much prefer a hard top over a soft top. The Volve C-70 doesn't do much for me and I dont want the soft top of the A5 for year round driving.
I am on my second G sedan and couldnt be happier, but in a couple of years I wont have to worry about having a car seat in the back and would love to go back to a two door. I can't imagine driving a soft top year round. Any thoughts, rumors, etc. of what Infiniti may do would be great. Or suggest other cars.

Larry...no 'vert AWD Infinitis. Matter of fact, only convertible 4WD I can think of would be in the Jeep showroom.

There's always the (freakish) Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet! Who wouldn't want a 4-door midsize CUV converted into 2-door mutant convertible sorta thing??? And they only cost about $45k with the Nav package..
They've been on the market for several years and already sold tens, maybe even dozens of them!!! =)

BMW makes a hard top convertible with 4 seats (328i & 335i) but they're not AWD. I don't know of any AWD convertibles other than the Audi A5. Those A5's are very, very nice looking despite my bias towards BMW. I don't know how the soft top would work out in the winter though.

Funny. Going down the requirements checklist it seems to have it all. CUV, AWD, convertible, 4 doors, gas mileage.... isn't that the dream car? Err, I guess not.
