Nissan 400Z can be canceledMay 10, 2020
Nissan is developing a new Z car – that’s for sure. But whether he will ever be able to enter the market is a question.
Earlier, we considered the prospect of a completely new replacement for the obsolete Nissan 370Z sports car thanks to a host of evidence, including spy photos of the prototypes, the Z brand logo, and even Nissan Brass claims. But the implementation of the development program alone does not seem to be enough for the new Z car to eventually appear on the market, especially if management decides that such a car works against their efforts to “nurture a green, environmentally friendly logo,” or if it requires more capital, than Nissan can justify.
This was hinted at by Nissan’s senior vice president of global design, Alfonso Albaisa, who remarked during an 2018 interview: “Machine Z, oh my god. You can imagine that I am completely excited and forced to work under tremendous pressure. ” But on his page in Roadshow, Albayza was more careful, explaining the situation with the standard phrase “we do not comment on plans for the future.”
“I know what you want me to say right now: that the new Z is on its way. I read rumors, and in half of the articles published they quote me or my “criminal” partner, Ivan Espinoz, head of the global product and program planning department. All this is very speculative and not confirmed. Let’s be honest, I think we all would like Z to go on. Classic proportions will never go out of style. So stay tuned, because you will never know what you will see in Nissan in the future, ”wrote Albaisa.
Nevertheless, experts are ready to conclude that the new Nissan Z car will almost certainly appear. Rumor has it that this new sports car will be called the “400Z” and will have a 3.0L twin-turbocharged V6 rated for 400 horsepower. Meanwhile, the maximum range of NISMO can reach 475 or more kilometers.
