      I wonder... Will there be an Infiniti equivalent model?

        If they keep mentioning A2Z I am going to think they check our website

              I like it, but I was really hoping for a lower belt line, to make it shorter and much more like the S30. It's that tall belt line that has been what was wrong with the 350Z and 370Z styling.

              I think 240Z styled bumpers, especially for the front would REALLY improve the look. It has a similar look to S30s that have had the front bumper removed, a large rectangular hole. A simple thin (matte) silver bar that blends into the front of the fenders would REALLY improve the look I think.

              I'm really digging the dash though.

                It will be really interesting to see this in person. I like that the car was yellow like my 240, like the twin turbo 6, and like even more that they are going to offer a manual! I feel like the car was missing some vents under the headlights, the large opening was really evocative of a bumperless 240z but the sides of the bumper almost seemed tesla-ish. It will be interesting to see what the final version looks like.

                Also interesting they are calling it the 400z with a 3L displacement, that's a first in over 50 years if I am not mistaken.

                  It still leaves room for us to be creative!
                  They didn't call it a 400Z

                  I like the stance. Should be good to handle the power. Unknown yet.
                  We know the handling of a current 370 so i don't think it will disappoint.
                  Styling -now we know. Speculate on the under pinnings!

                    No problem, glad you enjoyed the reveal and noted the comments on styling. I will keep monitoring that thread if there are other questions. Can't disclose anything about pricing yet but we want to make sure that it remains affordable for enthusiasts. There will be more to come so stay tuned!

                      Thanks for posting the shot of the interior and the dash, Ben. I really like it! But I'm very partial to the long low hood look.

                          Shall we call it a 380Z ?

                          VQ38HR[edit]



                          By 2007, Nissan's ambition to increase the competitiveness of the Z33 chassis in Super Taikyu racing resulted in the development of a larger displacement engine based on the original VQ35HR Block. The end result was the VQ38HR powered Nismo Type 380RS-C which went on to dominate ST class 1 racing. The 3.8-liter racing engine in the 380RS-C develops maximum power of more than 294 kW (394 hp; 400 PS), and maximum torque of 421 N⋅m (311 lb⋅ft).[2] In order to use this new engine in Super GT GT500, limited numbers of the engine were reproduced in the street-legal Fairlady Z Nismo Type 380RS. The VQ38HR engine mounted in the 380RS is a detuned, street version of the racing engine used in the 380RS-C. The engine displacement remains the same, while the intake manifold and exhaust, air-fuel ratio, ignition timing, VTC and other specs have been optimized for street use. The engine produces maximum power of 257 kW (345 hp; 349 PS) at 7200 rpm, and maximum torque of 397 N⋅m (293 lb⋅ft) at 4800 rpm.[3]

                          The VQ38HR fitted to the following vehicles:

                            Oh boy ! I really love it. I see elements of all Z cars in the design and some wants were filled. If you don't know how to drive a stick it's a pretty good excuse to learn and want one now ! Congratulations Nissan for an innovative new design !

                              Am I the only one who thinks it looks like a 370 with some new body work?
