Infiniti Prototype 9 – Interior, Exterior, Driving. Nissan and premium auto brand Infiniti have unveiled a sleek, open-wheeled electric retro-roadster prototype. The car, called Prototype 9, is a celebration of Nissan Motor and Infiniti’s ingenuity, artistry and craftsmanship. It represents a reimagining of a 1940s race car with time-honored production techniques employed to realize its retro design.
Prototype 9 is emblematic of Infiniti’s entrepreneurial spirit and passion for stunning design. From humble beginnings as a sketch, to the dynamic example presented at Pebble Beach, Prototype 9 has been brought to life as an after-hours endeavor by a passionate and enterprising team of employees from across the Nissan Motor Corporation.
The car is powered by a prototype electric motor and battery from Nissan Motor Corporation’s Advanced Powertrain Department. This nod to the future contrasts with the traditional materials and techniques applied for the Prototype 9’s manufacture, including panels hand-beaten by a team of Takumi – Nissan Motor’s master craftspeople.
