Nissan has presented this strange official teaser shot of what is believed to be the new 370Z – the replacement for today’s hairy-chested sports coupe, the 350Z. This unusual shot of a (rather vague) vehicle silhouette reveals more about the wheels and arches than any overall impression of the design, but styling chief Shiro Nakamura said we’d be seeing this vehicle later this year. Which is exactly when we’re expecting the new 370Z.
It’s slated to be four inches shorter than today’s coupe, which ties in with the truncated test hack we spotted on development duty last year (second picture above). And – you guessed it – the engine capacity jumps from 3.5 to 3.7, using the same engine as seen in the Infiniti G37.
Nissan 370Z – and more new vehicles
This unusual teaser was shown at the Nissan 360 – a media event held every four years to give journalists a deep-dive look into the company’s global activities. The US group went first this time, and this shot of the 370Z (or whatever else it might be) was taken by our friends over at Autoblog.
All the European media are on the second wave of the 360 event, so come back to CAR Online over the next few days for more lowdown on Nissan’s product plans.
