The next-generation of the Nissan Z car is one of the Japanese brand’s most anticipated cars. With the automaker already teasing its silhouette in its recent teaser video, we were all left wondering what that next-generation had in store. Photos of the supposed all-new Z car have surfaced and this time around it appears to be coming from a Japanese magazine. While the actual source of the photo was difficult to trace it does come with some information that taken with a grain of salt could set our expectations for the next generation of the Nissan Z. Nissan currently offers the Nissan GTR and the Nissan 370Z in its lineup as the only two available Sports car models.
Based on rough translations from the image it appears that the new Z car might be coming into the automotive market with a twin-turbo V6 engine. While this has a high probability of happening given the recent shift of automakers for their performance vehicles, it is important to note that this V6 could come from its stablemate the Nissan GTR. The Japanese magazine reports that the all-new generation of the Z could produce between 300hp to 400hp and generate about 400 to 475 Nm of torque. The photo also further claims that power will be sent to the rear wheels via either a 7-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission.
Other information from the images states that the all-new vehicle could be officially going on sale with three variants. Two of which will be gasoline-powered while the last variant is said to be an Electric Vehicle (EV). While still not officially confirmed it's still an interesting possibility. The current trends in the automotive industry have given rise to hybrid vehicles becoming the top of the line variant when it comes to performance and to emissions, with that said it could still likely happen. Nissan’s all-electric route for the new Z car could also be another possibility as it has already implemented its e-power system into the facelifted Kicks with much success.
It is important to note that while the information from these photos is not official and has yet to be confirmed it is still a good way of gauging what we can expect from Nissan and its highly anticipated next-generation Z car. For now, all we can do is wait for the Japanese automaker to release more information about its highly anticipated next-generation vehicle.
