The good:

- Almost all angles but front end looks amazing, rear, sides, roof, inside, love it.
- Side view, looks like a very balanced car, with roofline, wheels front nose, mid and back very proportionate.



The bad:

1. Bumper should go, its ugly, looks like a mix of 350z and the OG 370z bumper, this should be an easy fix for the production model.
2. Headlights are very cute. Strange thing they look great from side but look bug eyed from the front. Headlights should be much more aggressive.



Overall the car is great, and support Nissan all the way for being brave and releasing it.

PS: Just checked with my GF, she said new Z front end looks like a yellow sleepy bug, and she likes the 370z way more!

Well no "Wow" factor at all. Will just have to wait until it shows up on the showroom floor.

Just woken up from a VERY late night here in the UK (God, that presentation was bad, even with Tony Stark Ironman hosting it). And who was that annoying, self-promoting nob at Z-con?

At 3am, towards the end of the 'event' I got the devastating news that Nissan have said they won't be selling it in Europe.

This (via autocar.co.uk: However, there’s bad news for the UK and mainland Europe: the as-yet-unnamed new model won’t be offered for sale here. In a statement sent to Autocar, Nissan cited a “shrinking European sports car market and specific regulations on emissions” as the reasons why it was “unable to build a viable business case” for the car’s European release. )

So, having fallen asleep in a really miserable frame of mind, I've woken up to realise that the value of my 370z just increased, thanks to that fairly crap news

The new Z is not so much better than the 370 - I can spend my money on my current car instead - happy days!

When the car's designer got to the front bumper area he looked at the clock, said, "Oh my God, is that the time?" - and went to bed.

Shame he forgot to finish it.

The front reminds me of a variation of an s2k, and the proportions just don't seem right between the front and the back when looking from the side (too long of a nose and too short of an @$$). Car doesn't look aggressive and looks like it's smiling (picture teeth where the grill is).

Carlos Ghosn is probably laughing his @$$ off right now looking at this concept.
What about Randy Rodriquez ( from Tesla now work with GM designing Buicks and Cadillac) who pen the design of the 370Z ...I bet you he is having abdominal craps laughing about this design.

Please don't get offended its from a catfish front design ( which I like looks aggressive) to a front looking Tadpole with mouth open wide.

Anyone remember the 370Z 2018-2019 Heritage Edition? Remember the yellow and black interior in that? Now we know the real reason behind it. It was done as a test bed to test and gauge consumer reaction for this new Z's black and yellow interior.

Have you ever seen a 240z, 260z, or 280z back end? That is what it is. Not some stupid Mustang piece of crap.

i am honestly at a loss currently

i like pieces, i hate pieces, and in the end i'm just utterly disappointed in the laziness of nissan.

looks like a sloppy and quickly done proto over a 370 that they threw together last week.

interior is legit 90% 370z minus the 2 new displays like cmon.

the only way i can excuse the heavy reusing of 370 parts is if it comes out very very very soon and for a very low price. because nothing in this car is "new". it's all from the parts bin that they have lying around and that is what hurts the most over that fuckin awful front bumper.

I was initially but as they droned on and on about 'design cues' and fielding questions from idiots, I was more


Like everyone else, there are parts I liked and parts I'm not too sure about. My fiancee says it looks like the 370z..


I'm going to wait until I can see, touch and drive one before I make a decision. I'm hoping Amuse & some of the other JDM aftermarket folks come up with a cool front bumper.
