Default NEW 2-17-15 - possible 2016/17 Z (Z35) details

Hello everyone.

I know that over the past few months we have speculated, talked about, and argued over many rumors and leaked details over the very secretive new Z.

only details we have had to go on so far is some possibilities tossed in interviews from Nissan execs and the details of the 2016 Q60 that was shown. the details of that debut has given us all renewed hope and dreams of the next Z will/can offer.

now for the fun stuff:

last night I stopped by the Pittsburgh auto show for it's last night of the event. very nice to go last day since the crowd was very small and made it easy to navigate. and yes I know this isn't a bug name auto show and what could possibly come from it but you'd be surprised as to what you can hear from reps at these shows as well. I learned this last night first hand.

stopped at the infiniti area and was looking around. I made a comment as to why they didn't have a Q60 there mostly joking since again this isn't one of the top tier locations for auto makers and shows. the rep I was with went on to tell me they actually had one coming but due to the winter storms their truck hauling a few vehicles could not make it.

he then went on to tell me (off the record of course) that the Q80 is pretty much shelved for now and if anything it'll be a loooooooong shot 2017/18 idea.....if anything at all. I guess cutting into the GT-R market is still a big no no.

he also said that due to design stuff and some other issues we will be seeing a Z prior to the Q60 launch. so I would take from that comment that the Q60 is delayed at least a year now as well. also mentioned that the Z update has a chance of early 2016 release but most likely will be a fall 2016 if all goes according to plan.

the Z will most likely be TT since he smirked and asked "do you think you're ready for over 400 horsepower?"

I would assume with the few big car shows coming up we should be getting some new solid info on the Z very soon.

note: this was all just discussion between a rep. so please if anything doesn't end up being true remember I never said this is guaranteed. i'm just helping out the community with sharing info that was told to me. if not true then I am sorry and will be just as sad as the rest of you.

Hope it's true. Oh, and under 3000lbs would be nice too.

Me too but I think it would be realistic to expect it to be in the low 3Ks like the 370Z.
Modern safety features and tech will keep it over 3K.

Ok....

I highly doubt the Z will come out before the updated 'G' Coupe (or Q60 as it's referred to now). The G platform has sold a ton more cars than the Z and units moved is the biggest driver in being able to fund a new model.

Either way I can't wait to see a TT version going into these platforms

from what I was told there's issues with changing the concept Q60 we all saw into a production model styling wise. plus other issues he didn't discuss further with me.

he seemed very sure that we will see the Z before the Q this time around.

either way I just want info and some pics of the next Z. if the Q or the Z do come with the proposed TT engine and 400+ HP i'll end up getting the better looking version of the two.
