    So far it looks promising.

    I'm worried it's going to look pudgy. Hopefully I'm wrong! Also...I'm reading it won't be available until late 2022 as a 2023 model. That's a long way off...

    I think that Nissan releasing this teaser is their way of squashing those rumors. My thought is proto reveal now, production car reveal next summer, on sale for '22 model year.

    When the blue 350Z was revealed, The main thing I didn't like, were the door handle trim. I S I'll don't like the rear boot design, but the door trim looked so out of place.

    To me, the 370 got the shape right, but he light design looked wrong.

    Hopefully, the new Z looks plain. Clean. A basic starting point.

    As it turns out, those handles are complete garbage quality and are prone to breaking several times over the course of 350Zs' lives until now.

    Cool if it's going to look like that.

    I'm looking forward to this. I feel Nissan have been getting their mojo back lately.

    New teaser with a few glimpses of the design and maybe a hint at a manual transmission at the end.

    I’m very excited to see this unveiled. Great coupe profile, manual transmission, decent bit of power and a Z badge. Pretty much everything I want in a car and they’re pulling the covers off on my birthday.

    I can’t buy one, because it’s a 2+0 and I’d like to have kids soon. But if the 370 is anything to go by, the kids should all be off at Uni before Nissan stop selling them :lol:

    I wonder if they will offer a lower-spec model with a turbo 4 cylinder. It seems like it would be a good way to broaden their potential customer base.

    4-cylinder Z: BRZ/86, MX-5 alternative
    6-cylinder Z: Supra, Mustang, BMW 4 series (among others) alternative

    I wonder if lightness will be a key word.

    I can't wait to see what the 400z really looks like at that day.

    If this new Z is anything like the previous model than I'm not interested. I never liked the looks of the 350/370Z.

    Ayyy finally a non 370!

    It's looking like a modern interpretation of the 240Z, which I can stand behind.

    Would rather they made a proper S16 Silvia.

    This seems like it will use elements from all previous Zs, executed very well

    RWL or is that just the shine of Armour All on the tires?

    Doesn’t sound like a VQ, maybe they’re making a new six for it? Highly doubt it’s an I6 if that’s the case.

    Kind of dulls my anticipation. 370z for those that don't need 400hp or a turbo.

    Yeah. I'm not crossing it off the list yet, but it seems to be less my jam than I was hoping.

    The only way this car happens is cheaply. They don't have a RWD turbo 4-cylinder to use currently.
