Interestingly enough, I think at the time they brought the GTR to America, there was a strong sentiment to sell it as an Infiniti, but I think Carlos Ghosn insisted it be sold as a Nissan here, in an attempt to make it a halo for the brand. In the earlier days, the gap to the next Nissan wasn't quite as bad, but now that they've pushed up the starting price to ~$100k, it's pretty bad when the next most expensive Nissan starts at around ~$42k. I think part of the problem is the independent dealer network in the US, which gives the manufacturers much less quality control over the dealerships.
