Nissan Z Proto Teased For The Last Time, Debuts Tomorrow
Of course, there’s yet another teaser with Nissan’s upcoming new sports car. It’s the most revealing yet, and comes about 24 hours before the Z Proto’s big debut. We have to admit that the company’s teasing campaign is doing its job – we’re already excited to see the new vehicle.
This dark new image hints at the overall width of the sports car and its light signature at the front. Judging from what we’ve been able to see so far, our exclusive render seems to be pretty close to the real deal but, of course, we’ll have to wait another day for final judgment.
At this point, it’s not entirely clear whether the new Z car will be a production model or, rather, a near-production concept. We expect it to be very close to the final production form of the 370Z successor, but said coupe likely won’t hit the market for another 6 to 12 months.
Under the hood, the Z Proto will most likely get a version of Nissan’s 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine. If we’re to be completely specific, this is the Infiniti 3.0 V6 we’re talking about, which is available with up to 400 horsepower (298 kilowatts) and 350 pound-feet (475 Newton-meters) in models. Red Sport 400. The good news is that a six-speed manual will be offered alongside a seven-speed automatic.
We’re not completely sure there won’t be yet another teaser before the big start tomorrow. If it does happen, we’re here to share it with you. Otherwise, be sure to tune in tomorrow, September 15, 8:30 p.m. EDT for the live stream of the Z Proto premiere.
