I think that they should. It would be like the CLA AMG. There would definitely be a market for it. Add a sporty body kit, nicer brakes, stiffer suspension, and a few more extras. I'm sure it would be a good seller. I certainly would consider a Eau Rouge Q30.

I read more into the CLA 45 AMG and a lot of reviewers are saying it's not a real AMG.
Hopefully Infiniti does better and no matter how low of a segment they go into it will still be true to the kind of performance they can offer .

What is it about the CLA 45 AMG that makes it not a true AMG car? I'm sure that it has better performance than its non-AMG counterpart.

It shard to say if Infiniti will make a performance version of the Q30. I am leaning no. At least not soon. They would sooner roll out performance models for other cars before the Q30.

Its FWD bias. End of story.

It only sends power to the rear when it feels like it does

Plus its a high powered 4 cylinder with a turbo compared to the usual V8 V10 V12 V8/10 twin turbo maniac AMGs.
Best way to put it, that first line sums it up.
This is why I'd rather get a lower trim C-Class or even a lower trim 3 series. Even the 320i is amazing.

I think that people have a bias against 4 cylinder engines but 4-cylinder turbos are being used more often and its not necessarily true that they balk at performance.

I do see what you mean about it not being traditional AMG though.

I think Infiniti has a lot of other things that it would do before an IPL Q30 though.

i think it's just that most don't understand what the new 4 cylinder engines can do. put them behind the wheel of one and they'll think it's the 6 cylinder engine they preferred

A 4 cylinder turbo wont be as smooth as a V6. But it can make just as much power.
it wont be as smooth as a 6 but a lot of the newer four cylinder engines have more torque than they have in the past which helps with getting off the line. still better than a 6 cylinder if you just want power and MPG's and don't care for anything else.

i think a turbo 4 cylinder can have just a bad mileage if not more depending on how you drive

Sometimes a V8 will have better mileage than a turbo 4 (say high speed highway)
Yup, floor the heck out of it and it will drink gas. V8's on the highway are amazing, keeping up with the flow of traffic and even go faster and still stay around 2k RPM, meanwhile that's the norm for 4 cylinders in the city.
