Default 400z

So Ive been reading a few articles that Nissan will be doing the 400Z and that it will probably be a V8 and should be out at the end of the year or early 2011. Now Im not sure if its true about the time frame but Im pretty sure the 400Z is coming as its the next line to keep up with the new stang and other cars coming out with more power. A V8 would be nice for the next Z.

The one thing I dont like is the body if they go with the pic in the link.

Most likely Nissan will not put out a new Z til 2014 or 2013 as a 2014 model.

I would hope by 2012 to gain the edge back in power after the stang gets it next year. I saw VW and Audi with some cool looking 2 seaters too by 2012.

thats an old article before the 370Z came out, they thought it was going to go straight from 350 to 400Z.

It's a chopped up G37 concept picture. The Z will never look anything like that.

That article is from 2006, speculating about the 2009 Z. Pic looks just like a G35 Coupe

I hope not cuz as much as I would love a V8 Z I wouldnt get it if it looks like the G. How long was the 350 in production before the 370 came out?

nissan doesnt even have a engine ready for something like that.. I dont see it happening. Sales are already bad enough.. I dont see any money to R&D a whole new engine. they will stick to the tried the true VQ maybe stroke it a lil more and call it a 380Z maybe DI will show up.. the real point though is who knows.

No one.
