During the 2006 model year, when the Q was less than a year from being dropped from the lineup, Infiniti gave the M a strong shove in the back in the form of a 4.5-liter V8 and quietly told it to climb up on the soon-to-be-vacant throne. With the Q gone and unlikely to return anytime soon, the Infiniti M is now tasked with being the automaker's flagship sedan.

    Oh boy, this is about to get confusing with a capital Q. Infiniti has just announced a brand-new scheme that calls for completely new model names across its entire lineup of vehicles.

    Report: Infiniti M to get stretched for China
    1330203840

    China is Infiniti's second-largest market, so important to the brand that it is building its global headquarters in Hong Kong.

    Video: BMW goes blurry (again) in 1 Series M Performance parts teaser

In the video after the jump you'll see the 2012 ...

With a strong VQ-series powerplant and entertaining rear-wheel drive handling, there has always been a lot to like from behind the wheel, but its restrained styling has seemingly always failed to convey the sort ...
