2014 Infiniti Q50 - front three-quarter view

Infiniti's answer to the hot new sports sedans from BMW, Cadillac and Lexus is creeping closer and closer to its August 5 arrival in dealerships. And while we yet can't pass judgment on the Infiniti Q50 – formerly known as G37 – 3,650 Americans are apparently ready to, as they've already raised their hands for the 2014 model.

In a pre-sale program announced at the 2013 New York International Auto Show, Infiniti gave buyers until June 30 to raise their hand for the new model. "The Infiniti Q50 pre-sale exceeded all expectations, becoming the most successful such program in Infiniti history," according to Infiniti's American Vice President Ben Poore.

A lot is expected of the Q50, available in both rear- and all-wheel-drive and with an optional hybrid powertrain. With 328 horsepower from its 3.7-liter V6 engine, Infiniti is making sure the new car packs a big punch relative to the competition. Meanwhile, the Q50 Hybrid offers fuel-sippers 360 ponies and up to 36 miles per gallon.

If the V6 and hybrid aren't your cup of tea, the Q50's launch will reportedly be followed by the arrival of a turbocharged four-cylinder and a diesel engine. Meanwhile, the sleek four-door is expected to be joined by Q60 variants which will replace the G37 Coupe and Convertible.
