Nissan intrigued by news about new sports carsOctober 26, 2019
Nissan intends to keep the GT-R and 370Z sports cars in the lineup, as they are a fundamental part of the image of the Japanese brand.
Ivan Espinosa, head of Nissan’s strategic planning department, told Autocar that the company is actively working on the successors of the current generation of GT-R and 370Z sports cars. True, while the Japanese have neither prototypes, nor even drawings of future models, although the current Nissan GT-R has been produced since 2007, and the 370Z since 2008. If we recall that “three hundred and seventy”, in fact, is only an evolution of 350Z, then its age totals at all 17 years. Now Espinosa promised that in the near future from the Nissan should expect some long-awaited news that relate to sports cars.
At the same time, he allowed the possibility of joint development of a new coupe 370Z with another automaker, similar to how Toyota did in the case of the new Supra – with the proviso that in this case, the sports car will certainly save the Japanese brand DNA. With the Nissan GT-R of the future generation, the R36 is still more complicated: engineers can not decide whether it will become a hybrid in the new generation or whether an electric power plant should be developed for it. At the same time, the company is confident that the current generation of the R35 sports car has not yet exhausted the potential laid down in its development and still remains quite relevant.
