So, the new gen Z sports car from Nissan is official. A lineage which started with the E-Type-inspired Datsun 240Z welcomes its latest heir, and they have kept it refreshingly simple, right down to the name. They are simply calling it the Nissan Z, one alphabet, that’s it, no numbers, whatsoever.
It sits on a carryover platform, aged two decades and dating back to the 350Z, but we aren’t arguing, for the formula is tried and trusted – engine up front, transmission in the middle, drive to the rear. In case you haven’t been following the trends, they aren’t going to be making many more of these, so let’s cherish Nissan for even greenlighting the project.
