This is how I feel about it too. I also see a lot of retro cues and modern take on the design elements of the 240Z and 300ZX. Even if they don't change the front grille it is growing on me already and Im sure there the aftermarket will address it.
Really appreciate the pictures that were in the article to have a visual idea of it working. One sentence that got me was that "This engine is exclusively offered on Infiniti vehicles." That's very odd.
