Infiniti Rewrites History With Sinfully Retro Prototype 9 Racer

It might seem unusual for a company founded in 1989 to launch so retro a prototype, but under the historically inspired body, Infiniti says its new concept vehicle is blended "with the fusion of advanced EV [electric vehicle] technology".

In a statement, Nissan and Infiniti said: It [Prototype 9] represents a reimagining of a 1940s-race auto with time-honoured production techniques employed to realise its retro design.

We'll have more details when the Prototype 9 actually appears at Pebble.

Traders Buy QUALCOMM Incorporated (QCOM) on Weakness
It fall, as 48 investors sold ARCC shares while 88 reduced holdings. 61 funds opened positions while 125 raised stakes. Morgan Stanley reiterated an "equal weight" rating on shares of QUALCOMM in a research note on Wednesday, April 19th.

Discuss this story on our Infiniti forums. If one were to imagine an open-wheeled Infiniti racer on the famous circuits of the era, such as Japan's Tamagawa Speedway, what would that look like? Lead Infiniti designer Alfonso Albaisa and his team then set to work on the auto, with Nissan's advanced engineering and specialty vehicle divisions also getting involved.

Built in the style of a '40s or '50s racing auto, the Project 9 has been revealed bearing an electric drivetrain reportedly based on the upcoming all-new Nissan Leaf.

Producing 120kW (148hp) and 320Nm (236 lb ft) of torque via single-speed transmission, it has a top speed of 170kph (105.6 mph), and sprints from 0-100kph (0-62mph) in 5.5 seconds, with a maximum EV range of 20 minutes under heavy track use.

Perseid Meteor Shower Peaks This Weekend
With only a few clouds in the forecast tonight, some of us could see a few meteors streaking across the Valley. A meteor shower is in fact small chunk of a single, large comet falling into Earth's atmosphere.

The timeless techniques behind the auto are blended with state-of-the-art technology, as the Prototype 9 is fitted with an electric motor that provides a brisk 0-62mph time of 5.5 seconds and a top speed of 105mph. Our teams have proven skills in manufacturing, engineering, design and advanced powertrains, yet they wanted to bring their own traditional craftsmanship to the project. You might even think it's the real deal with its white wheels, elongated hood and hand-formed tail, but this prototype is all-new and even packs an electric powertrain beneath its aluminum bodywork.

Many concepts don't run and drive, but the Project 9 is a fully working prototype.
