The delay for a new Nissan Z sports car is about over. As we access the accession of a backup for the long-in-the-tooth 370Z—finally!—the rumor comminute is active at abounding capacity, giving us some agitative tidbits about the new two-seater’s powertrains, platform, and design. Here is what we apprehend from the new Z.
The best able agent currently in Nissan and Infiniti’s boilerplate calendar (apart from the GT-R) is the twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 that makes up to 400 application in the Infiniti Q50 and Q60. This is the analytic best for the new Z, then, and sources aural Nissan dealerships told Autoblog that this able comminute will absolutely be beneath the hood. A seven-speed automated is the alone chiral best for this agent in the Infinitis, but we’re acquisitive and praying that a stick about-face will be offered as well; remember, Nissan did adumbration that this was accessible by bolting up a six-speed chiral to this agent for its adapted 370Z abstraction for the SEMA tuner actualization this accomplished year.
This engine’s displacement calls into catechism what the new Z will be called. 300Z would be rational (or 300ZX, for nostalgia’s sake), but we’d assumption that Nissan will instead accept a cardinal agnate to the car’s achievement rather than its displacement, like 400Z, to analyze its ahead over its predecessors.
A front-engine, rear-wheel-drive blueprint is the alone absolute way to set up a able sports car, and the Z will abide on with a newer adaptation of Nissan’s FM belvedere and allotment abounding apparatus with the Infiniti Q60 coupe. That’s from an beforehand address from Autocar, which additionally said that the new car is code-named Z35.
All-wheel drive is aural the branch of possibility, accustomed that it’s offered as an advantage on the Q60. But we don’t anticipate Nissan will go this route, as none of the Z’s advised competitors—the Toyota Supra, Ford Mustang, and Chevy Camaro—offer the advantage of four apprenticed wheels.
Although the Nissan Z analysis mule we spied testing at the Nürburgring aftermost year wore the old car’s bodywork, we’re appealing assertive that the new archetypal will accept absolutely new styling. Autoblog’s sources appropriate that the aboriginal Datsun 240Z would serve as a administration afflatus for the new Z. We achievement that agency it will present simple, apple-pie curve rather than the angular, bent attending apparent on some Nissan abstraction and assembly cars lately. Roundish headlights and 300ZX-style taillights will reportedly serve as the key awakening touches, as apparent on our analogy above.
We agnosticism that the old-school affair will extend inside, however—and that’s a acceptable thing, because the 370Z’s berth is in charge of a avant-garde makeover. The berth should absorb its cozy, two-seat atmosphere, but we feel assured that it’ll account from the latest Nissan infotainment arrangement and a beginning dashboard design.
The accepted 370Z starts at aloof $31,015 and charcoal a appropriate achievement arrangement today admitting its age. While there’s no agnosticism in our apperception that the new archetypal will see a cogent amount uptick, we’re academic (and hoping) that the new Z will alpha about in the $40,000 range, which would attenuate the Toyota Supra by a few thousand dollars.
All signs point to the new Nissan Z’s accession actuality imminent. Our suspicion is that it will accomplish its aboriginal actualization ancient after in 2020, activity on auction in the U.S. as a 2021 archetypal either at the end of this year or aboriginal abutting year. We can’t delay to see it for real.
