No information was released on Nissan’s social channels alongside the date announcement, the brand did confim the new Z would break cover in New York City – and the reveal's proximity to the motor show in the same city (which opens to media on August 19) indicates the reborn sports car will make its public debut at the event...

2022 Nissan Z to shun 400Z moniker, start from AU$46,000 in the US – report

The 2022 Nissan 400Z could simply be badged 'Nissan Z' and undercut hot hatches on price in the US when it is unveiled later this year, according to new information. A post on the NewNissanZ fan forum claiming to quote leaked insider information – the authenticity of which couldn't be validated by CarAdvice – alleges Nissan's new sports car will be badged 'Nissan Z' in export, non-Japanese markets, rather than the power-based 400Z designation widely rumoured...

'Mr GT-R' and Nissan Z product specialist Hiroshi Tamura talks spirit and purpose

Many know him as 'Mr GT-R', but Hiroshi Tamura has always had a Nissan Z car of some form in his life, and they've always been mean, extra-ordinary versions. The first was a used example of the race-focused homologation 240ZG, chosen because its pointy fibreglass snout reminded him of Japan's iconic Shinkansen – known to most of the world as a 'bullet train'...

Looking for a Christmas treat? Here are five performance vehicles on sale now

Australia loves a performance car, no questions there. Whether that stems from the tyranny of distance, or our cultural upbringing on Bathurst and V8s, who knows. What we do know is that we still continue to buy the hotted-up versions of regular cars, alongside a healthy amount of two-door sports cars, too...

Interview, Alfonso Albaisa: Designing Nissan's new Z car

Nissan Z Proto in (almost) all the colours of the rainbow

UPDATE: The fans over at 400ZClub.com (gee, they've really doubled down on the 400Z name!) have created a set of nicely re-coloured examples of the Z Proto, so we've added them to the story below.
