Nissan Will Unveil It's New Z Soon: Here's What We Know So Far
With the recent announcement of the New Z Prototype being unveiled some more rumors have come out as well.
A few days ago Nissan announced the unveiling of their new Z prototype on September 15th with that more rumors have circulated the internet the past few days about the dubbed 400Z.
Along with the announcement that the prototype would launch on September 15th or 16th (I've seen both days reported), Nissan hinted at the fact that the prototype that will be revealed will be similar to the final product. Nissan has typically been pretty good at making their final products resemble their original concepts, and I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be any different for the new car.
The new Z is going to be on the same platform that the current 370Z is built on which may be concerning to many considering that the platform is now somewhat old. It has also been confirmed that the Z35 won't have electrification. The engine is likely to be the 3.0L VR30DDTT V6 from the Infiniti Q50/Q60 and make 400hp. While these rumors aren't new, it is still worth mentioning. A new rumor I have been seeing however is exciting if it's true. The power is rumored to be sent to the ground via your choice of either a six-speed dual-clutch transmission, or a six-speed manual.
Potential Release & Price
Back in late May, Nissan announced their plan to launch 12 (8 electric) new models within the next 18 months which included the Z, however, this plan might not be what we thought as Nissan's plan runs through their 2023 fiscal year which ends March 31st 2024. According to an August 27 2020 article by Auto Express they said the Z35 was due in 2022 and go on sale in 2023 of their plan. I hope it's not true and that we get a late 2021 debut and the Z35 go on sale as a 2022 model year. The starting price is rumored to be around $40,000 (USD).
