Infiniti's Emerg-E: look familiar?
Gorgeous concept designed by same man behind 23-year old Tokyo motor show car…

He tells us the Emerg-E concept didn't have as much ‘volume' put into the front, instead adding ‘energy' into the middle of the car, including that glorious air intake. "Everything is overlapping like a Kimono," Shiro says. "I wanted to put more elegance into the rear end. I wanted to express an elegant sportscar, not a strong, macho mid-ship. Something a little more feminine."
But will we ever see the Emerg-E - or at least a mid-engined Infiniti sports car - on our roads? Gert van Avondt, Infiniti product manager, is tantalisingly obscure on the point. "After the new G launches next year, you'll see a new small hatchback soon after. Then, perhaps, you'll see an Infiniti halo model. At this point, we're not sure whether it'll be like the Essence or Emerg-E - it's still open for discussion."
