G37 Gets AWD

From the Insideline:

SANTA MONICA, Calif. ? Infiniti dealers won't get the Nissan Skyline GT-R, but all is not lost as the G37 coupe has an all-wheel-drive version on the horizon.

While Nissan is slow to confirm the timing, the addition of AWD to the 2008 Infiniti M45 sedan this fall, and the 2008 G35 Sport sedan early next year, makes it only a matter of time before the G37 coupe adds an "x" to its name as well.

"Dealers and customers have asked about it ? and I understand it's reasonable to expect it may happen, but nothing has been finalized, no timing decided," said Tim Gallagher, senior manager for product launch strategy and corporate communications.

With the 2008 Audi A5 Quattro and 2008 BMW 335xi coupe entering the market, Infiniti would be smart to jump into the fray as quickly as possible, offering a 300-horsepower all-wheel-drive coupe that's sure to undercut the Audi and BMW in price.

What this means to you: The G37x could be your consolation prize for not getting a Skyline GT-R, and at half the cost.

This is no surprise, since the previous and current generation G35 Sedan has an AWD "X" option. The RWD G35/37 has an LSD (although it's a viscous LSD, it's still an LSD nonetheless). So an AWD G37X is really no big deal; it will still be slower than the 335ix...but thanks for sharing.
