Infiniti has carried the look of the G35 into the G37 and pushed it a little further

Nissan's engineers and designers worked hand-in-hand to mold the G37 Convertible's shape, avoiding the bulbous back-side that plagues most coupes called to cabrio duty (and our fictional assistant).
The G37 Coupe is at once both sporty and elegant. It looks mature in the right ways, with a tailored, neat appearance, and manages to carry itself with the stance and proportions of a sports car.
That's no mistake. It's built from the same platform as the shorter, more evocative Nissan 370Z, and it's a rare case where there's truly a lot of distinction between the cars. The G37 has several inches of extra length, going to a real pair of rear seats, and has all sorts of sublime details going toward an upscale appearance. In all, the G Coupe could be seen as either a softer, more understated sports car or a more edgy luxury coupe.
The Convertible looks a bit different, and it's not just a matter of the different roofline introduced by its retractable hardtop. Thinner pillars make the roof itself look larger, while there's a little more oomph to its rear end (where the top resides when it's folded). Overall, these differences, surprisingly, add up to a little more voluptuousness than the Coupe, actually, and it completely avoids the squat, chunky form that affect nearly all retractable hardtops--even the Ferrari California.
No matter which version, the cabin keeps pace with the exterior. It's elegant with a dash of daring. A well-finished cockpit, lots of lovely soft-touch materials, rich leather, and a choice of deeply stained rosewood trim or softly brushed aluminum are bound to make you (or your clients) feel like you're in thoroughly upscale ride. At the same time, the low seating position and very low dash, combined with the cockpit-like gauge layout, quietly scream that this is a sports car on the sly.
The 2013 Infiniti G37 Coupe and Convertible are either hadsome and understated as sports cars or edgy and bold as luxury cruisers.
