New Z Proto Unveil!

YouTube Z Unveil

Tonight Nissan went on livestream to unveil what we have all been looking forward to, the next generation Z car. A few questions had been officially answered;

“Will there be a manual transmission?” The answer is yes. With all the racing heritage the Z has, I believe the entire Z community would be an uproar if there wasn’t. (Remember the time Nissan unveiled the second gen 370 Nismo… without a manual transmission option? I do. Nissan fixed that by the following year).

“What engine? Turbos?” V6 Twin Turbo! I’m pumped about this. The amount of tune-ability we will have will be awesome. Turbos is what the Z car has been missing for the last 15 (plus or minus) years.

Questions I still have; *Price point *Trim levels *Type of differential and/or if an LSD will be in all trims *Power-HP/Torque *Weight Distribution

It seems that a lot of the new Z came from us the enthusiasts. I know that Nissan can’t please everyone but overall I believe they did a great job listening to us. As this is still the ‘Z Proto’ and I’m sure there will be a couple little tweaks, I’m extremely proud to own three different generation Z cars currently and continue my dads Z car legacy with another generation Z soon.
