It has always been my experience with Nissan and Infiniti products that they always match up performance wise, but when it comes down to execution the marque falters.



Take, for example, the NISMO 370Z. An absolutely brilliant piece for around $40,000 that offers plenty of value for dollar, particularly when its compared against a Cayman. The only problem is that its not all that refined. It's clutch is tuned for precision and punishes you harshly if you don't comply and additionally, it's suspension is so stiff that you may need to see a chiropractor after you get out -- not literally. Additionally, although I am positive some owners track their NISMOs, it isn't really a track-spec vehicle in my opinion. It seems to be a track-focused daily driver, if that makes any sense.

With that said, the IPL G convertible is going up against some serious competition in form of the BMW 335is, which is likely one of the best BMW products ever, and the Audi S5, which is also another top-notch product.

The thing that makes the BMW and the S5 SO great, is that the Germans are refined and can be used in a pothole-ridden daily drive. The IPL, while I have yet to test the coupe, makes me wonder if that is possible.

What say you, Spies? Do you believe the IPL has what it takes to challenge the Germans?
