The questionable front bumper has been fixed. ;)

I'd buy that in a heartbeat. Just shows you the most polarizing part (front end) needs only slight change to look great.

So I changed your render up a bit.

Removed the bottom lip, added a "vent" to the side crevice, brought down the front lip a little, and smoothed out the harsh line around the grille corner.

Huge improvement with or without the bottom lip removed. I will say tho even tho a non-rectangular grille looks better, it does look less iconic "Z" in styling.

I think it's okay to have new styling features though. If you look back, pretty much every Z after the previous added new styling which in a way makes a Z what it is. I think they were too tunnel visioned on trying to make this Z Proto look like a combination of all the other Zs that they forgot to add new touches of styling that makes it look more attractive, aggressive, and stylish.

Should Nissan bring the Roadster back?

What do you guys think of this new render I did of the rear?

I made the tail lights a little longer, got rid of that middle black area, and reworked the body line engravings. Instead of the oval shape it had, I brought down the lines on bottom outer side of the tail lights towards the diffuser to help give more emphasis on the width of the rear fenders. Also, instead of keeping the "bulge" lines connected, I disconnected those and brought them down on each side, flowing with the natural curvature of the design and left them disconnected at the bottom.

Also I think a carbon fiber spoiler would look great.

What do y'all think with the same colored roof?

I definitely like it better with the colored roof.

The silver side blade doesn't appeal to me at all. In black or also yellow I think it's much better.

Edit: colored the bottom diffuser body color leaving the very bottom exposed still.

I wouldnt change a thing. Maybe just a horizontal color matched trim to divide the grille.

If the roof was color matched, people would try to make it black. Same with the bumper photoshop.
I dont get it.

The first post with the wider grille will not look right when viewed from the side.
