Nissan 370Z News

Nissan Z crossover still seems likely

Nissan is not denying persistent rumours that the next iteration of the famed Z car — to replace the tired 370Z — will be a higher-riding crossover. When it whipped the covers from the slinky Gripz concept a little over one year ago, Nissan made its proposal quite clear...

Nismo Australia rollout finally on track, 370Z to follow in GT-R's tracks

Nissan Australia is finally ready to roll out its performance-honed Nismo sub-brand locally, after a few years of talk but not much in the way of publicly visible action. As we reported yesterday, first off the mark will be the Nissan GT-R Nismo supercar, a $299,000 monster with GT3 racing turbos, carbon-fibre construction elements and a 0-100km/h sprint time of around 2...

Nissan Australia boss acknowledges importance of sporting past

Aside from GT-R and the ageing 370Z, there’s little doubt that Nissan’s sporting offerings are, at best, slim. Gone are the days of the sporty Pulsar, the S14 and S15 200SX - vehicles that had cult-like status through the 1990s and early 2000s, bolstered by hot low-volume JDM versions, which reached Australia...

No new Nissan GT-R before 2020, Z-Car will live on

There will be no new GT-R before 2020 and the rumoured death of the Z-car won’t take place under the watch of Chief Product Specialist and Nismo boss Hiroshi Tamura. That’s the message from the 2015 Nismo Festival, where the head of Nismo won’t actually tell us much about what is being worked on behind the scenes, but he is willing to spruik the motorsport link to Nissan - and Nismo’s - DNA...

Nissan Gripz: 240Z rally-inspired concept unveiled

The Nissan Gripz concept has been given its full debut at the 2015 Frankfurt motor show and points to a potential Z-branded SUV. After teasers and rumours, the Gripz concept finally made its debut at this year's Frankfurt show. Nissan says that this "dual personality" show car has the "silhouette of a sports car with a raised ride height [and is] equipped to conquer more challenging driving conditions"...

Nissan Gripz concept teased, hints at a Z-car crossover

The Japanese car maker has confirmed the name, the Nissan Gripz, and the theme of the crossover concept that it will debut at the 2015 Frankfurt motor show. Nissan formally began its teaser campaign earlier this week when it announced that it would show a "crossover concept" at Frankfurt...

Nissan 370Z replacement could be a crossover - report

The next-generation Nissan Z-car could well be a performance-oriented crossover vehicle, if reports out of England are to be believed. An inside source has told Autocar that the new Nissan Z-car will be a small, sporty crossover vehicle around the size of current Juke...

Nissan 370Z replacement must be 'revolutionary' to survive, says design head

The head of design at Nissan global has revealed that the replacement for the now-six-year old 370Z needs to be "more revolution than evolution" in order to have a future. Potentially likely to mirror the three-year gap seen between the 300ZX and its 350Z successor, Nissan chief creative officer Shiro Nakamura says the replacement for the 370Z — long speculated to drop the reference to engine displacement and simply be called ‘Z’ — must bring with it significant changes, or it will not survive...

Nissan GT-R still "has more potential" in current generation

The man in charge of global design at Nissan has revealed that, while the next GT-R is still "more than two years away", the current car has potential to get even better. Speaking to Australian media at this weekend’s Le Mans 24 Hour endurance race, Nissan chief creative officer Shiro Nakamura said the current supercar’s straight-line performance will be hard to better, but that other improvements are achievable...

Nissan 370Z Nismo Roadster Concept debuts in Chicago

The Nissan 370Z Nismo Roadster Concept debuted overnight at the 2015 Chicago motor show, proving there's still a little life left in the Yokohama-based car maker's ageing sports car. Like the 370Z Nismo coupe that was unveiled at an enthusiasts' event last April, the 370Z Nismo convertible is powered by a slightly more powerful version of the company's 3...

Nissan 370Z successor to be offered with multiple engines

The next-generation Nissan 370Z will likely downsize its V6 engine in response to toughening emission restrictions and customer demands in Europe. The next-iteration of the iconic Nissan Z sports car is likely to be offered with multiple engine choices as Nissan seeks to sell a model that appeals to both Europe, where V6 engines are basically extinct, and North America, where the 370Z’s popularity is in part due to its larger powerplant...
