How Does It Drive?

How Does It Drive?  - 2011 Infiniti IPL G Coupe review - Reviews - Infiniti IPL G

The IPLs 18 extra hp give it only the slimmest straight-line edge, with the car posting a 0-to-60-mph time of 5.4 seconds, actually 0.1 second behind the best time weve seen from a G37S coupe. Both post identical 13.9-second quarter-mile times, and the IPL is quicker to 90 mph and every 10-mph increment thereafteralthough only barely. Its lead at 130 mph is 0.7 second.

Driver comfort depends greatly on driver height; those above six feet will find their noggins kissing the headliner. But drivers who fit will appreciate adjustable thigh and torso bolsters that do a great job of keeping them planted in corners. A power tilting-and-telescoping steering wheel aids comfort, too, although it could use greater reach. Moving the seat closer to the wheel sacrificed pedal control. Not that its difficult to manipulate the IPLs three pedals with two feet, but we were surprised the IPL doesnt get Nissans crafty SynchroRev Match downshift program, which makes heroes of heel-and-toe amateurs. Also the right-turn-heavy track we visited (Michelins Laurens proving ground) caused the IPLs V-6 to sputter from fuel starvation with the tank still one-third full.
