New Nissan Z Proto 2020

Postby Duane 3NE 2NR » September 15th, 2020, 9:59 pm

Taking inspiration from 50 years of innovation and passion, we’ve unleashed the Power of Z with the Nissan Z Proto - sporting a modern cockpit, a turbocharged engine and modern design with classic proportions.

bump the thread when it actually goes on sale. It's still just a concept car... and does the 2020s need a Nissan Z car with a big gasoline engine, or does it need a Nissan Performance type EV instead, like the Tesla Roadster? Really, who wants a Z 3-liter V-6, when they already have their Infiniti line doing that.

A lot of people didn't like the new Supra when it just came out
But now it's all over those tuning sites and IG pages

^ Was on the fence about the Supra as well... it definitely has grown on me.

Not sure about the dead-on front view of this "Z".... that profile though... nailed it.

I still think the supra is hideous

This on the other hand I love..clean simple lines..tonnes of customization possibilities..like being given a Z with a blank slate

Remember how long it took the production gtr to be ready from the prototype reveal?

Not feeling the big rectangle in the front (looks amateur). But the side profile is sweet.

Thst different. As the engine was explained by engineering explained, it has a lot of potential for tuning. It seems designed to be bought then built.

Looks wise, was okay, but not supra. So long as u forget bout buying an updated supra, u would be fine.
That car without the supra name, was a good car.



This car on the other hand, It borrowed too much from the old design to hit that spot, but to me, I ain't digin it.. To me it resembles a fast back and I hate how that looked.
The front of the car,, I not mad, but I not feelin it.


It too ugly for me, to dig into the mechanical... I just not interested.

This is like the spyder that came out to look retro or the pt cruiser. It not working for me.

This, looks wise, is like the r31 of the fairlady line up.

the back is almost perfect, could do with a bit more aggression. But it's definitely classy. Almost like an AE86 mixed with a Jag mixed with a mustang


The front really is a blank slate. They didn't do the V grille they usually do. Just a rectangle.
The front lights could be a bit more aggressive. The hood still looks like a 350.

Overall, me likey.

Despite Nissan's troubles of making absolute nonsense as of late, credit must be given where credit is due, if they do launch this new 400Z, then maybe 5 vehicles in their overall lineup would be worthy ie. Said Z, the GTR, the NP300, the Titan and the Patrol.

I'm not feeling that new design but again to give Nissan credit, at least its fully Nissan and unlike Toyota, something as important as the Supra name was handed to BMW to develop which is an insult to the spirit of the originals of the 80s and 90s.

But perhaps that is what makes Toyota so profitable and Nissan so vulnerable as two separate companies. Toyota probably knew that it would be less expensive to allow BMW to make their supra and let the badge and name together with some marketing fool a bunch of sheep into thinking they truly have a Supra successor. But Nissan on the other hand is actually paying homage to the Z's ancestors with their design.

One for profit and the other for the purist.
Nissan still has my respect despite using the same FM platform that is under the 370Z/Infiniti Q50 etc and sourcing the motor from the Q50s red sport 400 edition. Toyota still has my respect because the majority of their lineup has great products but I expected much better from them. To me, the truest successor to the Supra is the Lexus RC.

the rear looks like classic Z. Love that callback reference to the classic 300zx

front looks very euro, maybe mixed with some mazda.
