so do you think that this is eluding to the Z's retirement at the end of the 370's cycle?

say what you want about him, but he brought the entire world the GTR and saved the company. I haven't gotten my AW yet and read the article, but whatever he has done now, you have to balance it with what he has accomplished there.

Yep, and stated in the article is the Z as we know may not survive but the essence will live on in another vehicle. From pure speculation that could mean anything, maybe a V6/electric system or an affordable performance electric vehicle.
Nissan already has the Leaf coming soon, puts the GM Volt to shame all around including price.

I din't think the Z is going to last too much pass a few year! The Japanese market lost 36% last year, so is not looking good.

Glad I had the privilege to owned a 300ZX, 350Z and now a 370Z which I will keep forever unless something dramatic happens. I'll be looking for a 240Z or 260Z here pretty soon.
