Did you know? A brand new generation of the Nissan Z is coming. Up until now, all we had were speculations and artist renderings, but now the Japanese automaker has posted a video announcing its future products and the redesigned sports coupe makes an appearance.
While the images are dark and shadowy, the new Z can be seen with a silhouette that represents a beautiful evolution of the current car.

The hood is noticeably longer and the headlights are completely redesigned, like a modern interpretation of the circular lights on the classic 240Z. It appears Nissan is searching for inspiration from the past; rumour has it the taillights will emulate those on the 300ZX.
Unfortunately, we still don’t know when the future Nissan Z will be officially revealed or what its exact name will be. All signs so far point to “400Z,” a nod to the new twin-turbo 3.0-litre V6 that would generate 400 horsepower. It’s the same engine found in the Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 and it would be a huge improvement over the 332 horsepower delivered by the naturally aspirated 3.7-litre V6 in the 370Z.
