A Nissan exec has just revealed that the company plans to release the next-generation Nissan Z sports coupe next year! It was hinted that it could carry the 400Z name which indicates a possible increase to 4.0-liters for the V6 engine offering.
The final design is reportedly close to being finalized but has yet to be locked in. Stay tuned as we learn more!
The news comes via Austrlian website Whichcar, who spoke to Nissan's Senior Vice President for Global Design, Alfonso Albaisa. Albaisa confirms the next-gen Z (platform code Z35) development by admitting that he's under huge pressure when it comes to the next gen Z-car. Read on inside...
After years of rumor and speculation about the fate of Nissan's legendary Z sports car, we now have word that the company will be unveiling the next-generation Nissan Z Concept this October at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show!
While the next Z car is expected to share similar proportions as the current 370Z, it is likely to also ride on the shorter-wheelbase Infiniti FR-L platform and adopt design characteristics from the Nissan GT-R.
Nissan isn't playing it safe either, as rumors indicate that a hybrid Nissan Z with a DCT gearbox and electric motor could crank out a whopping 500 horsepower and make it the most powerful in its class.
Autoblog and Auto Express have published new pieces which mention the next Z car.
Main takeaways from these new articles:
- The Nissan Z sports car will always remain in the range forever, says Shiro Nakamura (Senior Vice President of Nissan)
- No firm date for future Z35 yet
- Nakamura wants to take cues from the original 240Z for the Z35

Infiniti has just announced a new 3.0-liter V6 twin turbo engine. The new VR-series engine will be available in two power outputs with either 300 or 400-horsepowers and will be the lightest, most powerful, cleanest and most fuel efficient V6 engine that Infiniti has ever offered.
The 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo engine family will first be available in the 2016 Infiniti Q50 sports sedan but it appears to have all of the makings for the next Nissan Z engine
