Default My Future Z Sketches

So, during Hurricane Sandy I had some free time and got to work on some concept art on what a future Nissan Z could look like and I thought I'd share. I took some inspiration from the 240Z, the 370 and Nissan's design language. I'm not a professional automotive designer or anything, I was just really bored not having internet access for a week. Let me know what you guy's think

I'm loving that side shot, specifically the black line tailing off towards the back tires. Awesome work sir.

For Comparison:
