Doesn't seem like it will be by the way they were talking about it on reveal night. Plus considering Nissan's current financial situation they likely want to start collecting sales on the 400Z asap to help their bottom line.
Nice work. It removes the tired eye bags under the headlights. Paired up with the blacked out bottom lip, it makes the whole front end seem more aggressive.
One thing I'm always reminded of when seeing a straight on shot is how much the hood lines get lost with the yellow paint. If this was a...
Hopefully there's more than 2% change in store for the grille hah. Everything else I'm cool with as-is. They did a bang up job.
One thing I hope they don't change even 1% is the blacked out roof with silver roofline trim. I think that is the iconic signature design for this new gen Z.
There goes that 2023 rumor lol. Spring 2021 is only a few months from now!
Big fan of what Nissan did here by presenting a production-intent version of the 400Z just a few months before sales start. THey've learned from other highly anticipated cars debuts that were dragged out way too long -...
That's a fail. They managed to make a dual clutch bad?!
I'm hoping for a good dual clutch box just for ultimate control. Extra nice if they gave it double-pull feature to drop to neutral. Good for some exhaust revving on the go :)
Floor boards huh. Haven't really heard of those being a common target area for weight savings, but saving weight these days requires creative thinking!
Fast and Furious had this weight saving method figured out years ago though (I kid :)).
It would put it right back into competitive pricing territory compared to its main rivals. For me it doesn't necessarily need to drop that much if it comes with an awesome design, great specs and some new features. DCT would be a great start IMO.
"In the US, there are two engine choices with three levels of output. The twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 comes with either 400 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque, or 300 hp and 295 lb-ft."
Looks like that is confirmed too. Now can they throw us a bone about the Z?
No company waits 8 yrs for a platform change anymore. The life cycle changeovers have gotten shorter to keep up with the technology and competition. Also more sense of urgency to make cars lighter and more fuel efficient to meet CAFE etc.
And now there are the rumors that a RWD nissan coupe will be shown at Tokyo (from this thread) but it sure doesn't look Z related based on the render. If it does turn out to be the Z35 maybe all this confusion IS because it borrows the IDx styling. I hope they nixed that project and focus on the Z.
