On the design of the sports car works the creator of the new corporate style Infiniti
Senior vice president of global design Nissan Alfonso Albaisa confirmed work on the successor of the sports car 370Z. Over the appearance of the machine will work the same team that created the electric Prototype 9 and the concept car Infiniti Q Inspiration.
In an interview with WhichCar, Albaisa said that he is directly involved in the process of creating a new machine and therefore has tremendous responsibility and pressure. At the same time, the designer admires the “delightful simplicity” of the 240Z and 300ZX models.
In January, rumors about the death of the Z-line were denied by the vice-president of planning Philip Klein. He noted that despite the fall in sales of sports cars, for Z-cars in the Nissan lineup there is a place. Earlier it was reported that the company intends to change the concept of the model and build a competitor Subaru BRZ and Toyota GT86.
According to preliminary information, the work on 370Z of the new generation is being carried out in cooperation with Mercedes-Benz. The German manufacturer Nissan intends to borrow a two-liter turbo for the basic version of the sports car. The top version can be equipped with 3.0 V6 Infiniti.
