This guy I know went to some "secret" marketing survey where they paid the attendees $100 cash each to look at some cars and give their opinions.. the cars presented were the Acura TL, BMW 3series, IS300, Nissan Maxima, and the Infiniti G35.. my friend drives a TL, but he said the first car that caught his eye was the G35.. I've tried to find stuff about it but haven't read or seen anything.. but it has the 3.5 260hp V6 and its positioned against the BMW/IS300/A4 class.. anyone ever heard anything about it ?

Supposedly this marketing thing was like hush-hush because they made you remove all electronic items and put them in a locker.. I guess they feared spy photography..

I asked him if it was an I30 or I-series.. but he said it was definitely a G35.. he drew a picture of it (and he's no artist).. but he said what really struck him about it was the front of the car.. the grill and how it looked really aggressive.. he said like he asked about it or something and the people there said its just a prototype with no planned production.. which led us to believe the marketing survey was put on by Nissan..

that car looks more like a GS contender.. also, I'd think it'd come with the same motor as the new Maxima, hence the name, G35.
