If you're an automaker who's made a significant investment into an auto show, the last thing you want to have happen is a failed press conference.

It's embarrassing for all involved and the worst part is it happens in front of the media, which has access to an assload of cameras. Unfortunately, today was not Infiniti's day.

In what may be the best analogy for the Infiniti brand, overall, its car died BEFORE it could make its entrance to the stage. That's right, folks. The QX Inspiration Concept is stuck in the hallway.

After announcing the vehicle would take the stage, we noted it was being covered back up.

We'll post real-life shots assuming the car makes it on the stage some time today. Otherwise, we've got a flight to catch.
