People buy luxury cars for a variety of reasons -- notably, the status, style, and comfort they provide. Performance is also important to many upscale buyers, and accordingly, luxury lots are full of rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive vehicles.

Infiniti, however, insists that high-end shoppers are also comfortable with front-wheel drive, and there are hints that the company might return to that configuration for a new vehicle or line of vehicles. (The company's last front-wheel drive was the Infiniti I35 at left.) These rumors could be associated with a less-expensive, intro-level line, or perhaps with a new A/B-class vehicle Infiniti has in the works.
