Infiniti Prototype 9 wonderfully beautiful EV

Infiniti Prototype 9 wonderfully beautiful EVOn the surface, the Infiniti Prototype 9 seems little more than a whimsical what if, a designer’s doodle made into metal, maybe even a brazen attempt to build a creation legend for an automaker that didn’t even exist until a half a century after the era that defines its form. But like a samurai sword, the Prototype 9 is an object made up of hidden layers, wrapped in meaning.

It has a single seat (obviously), and can even be driven on the track… just not for very long. Infiniti says the battery will last for roughly 20 minutes under “heavy track use,” which means it wouldn’t offer much distance if it was taken on regular roads.

The car was designed and built by a number of different departments within Infiniti and Nissan. A simple sketch expanded as more and more designers and engineers wanted to have a hand in the project. The steel body panels were all shaped and hammered by hand.

It’s manufactured heritage… but look at it. It’s beautiful and modern with a vintage twist, and I just can’t be mad. Plus it’s a perfect B.S. move for Pebble Beach, where it will be officially unveiled. I hope they produce some real ones. The only thing it’s missing is engine noise (and actual history).
