1985 Nissan Cuex Concept Car
A variation of those wheels made it into final production, called "HICAS" wheels.
"Intended for production in the early 1990s, Nissan's Cue-X was a classic four-door saloon with a front-mounted V6 turbo engine with 24 valves, 3 liters, and a 300 horsepower capability. The cleanliness of the lines and sensibility of proportion caught the eye of many enthusiasts at the 1986 Tokyo Auto Show. It was 191 inches long and utilized an integrated automatic transmission."

Here's a prelaunch ad from 1989 where you dont even know the ad is for a car

A prelaunch ad for Infiniti showing a flock of geese

Here's a 1993 ad for the J30
-The voice in the ad is Michael Douglas (thanks Lou!).

The original Q45

Here's a bit clearer version of the Q45 ad

This is a 1994 Q45 ad with Johnathan Pryce talking about Infiniti, doing flips and such
-"Visit your Infiniti dealer to see the new Q45 and how rock solid it feels. Better yet, drive an old one."

A G20/J30/Q45 ad about Infiniti safety
-"Would a visit to your Infiniti showroom be in order? I think thats safe to say."

An ad about the original Q45 and the luxury features
-Note that this ad calls it a "performance-luxury" sedan, instead of the usual "luxury-performance" sedan.

And here's an excellent ad for the 97-01 Q45

Johnathan Pryce did the 1994 Infiniti ads

A nice report on the Infiniti brand launch, along with a sales chart

There was also a December 4, 1993 parody ad on SNL with Johnathan Pryce. It was called "Infiniti Toilet." It talked about a fancy toilet with heated seats and cupholders, and a finish that resisted 'caca.'
