The Nissan Z Concept Gets Grand Reveal in Tokyo

Set to replace the Nissan 370Z, speculation on the Nissan Z concept shows a promising future

Nissan reportedly has big plans for the upcoming Tokyo Auto Show – including the debut of the brand new Nissan Z Concept model, which aims to ultimately replace the extremely popular Nissan 370Z sometime in the future.

The Nissan Z is said to be available with three different powertrain options, a 3.0-liter V6 engine that gets 300 horsepower, a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that gets 400 horsepower, and a hybrid combination, adding an electric motor to the 400-horsepower engine.

Though the Nissan Z that will be on display is said to be just a concept, rumor has it that a production model will follow its reveal in the next few years. It’s safe to assume that the production version of the Nissan Z will be quite similar to the concept that will be on display in Tokyo.

If you’re interested in checking out the Nissan Z concept in person, the time for booking plane tickets is now.

We don’t know much else about the Nissan Z today, but of course, we will be keeping you up to date in the future. To learn more about what Nissan has in stock currently or to take a Nissan model out on a test drive, contact us any time at Lewis Nissan.

Nissan Drops the Cube, Promises to Still Be Quirky

2013 Nissan CubeMany car buyers search for something a little different in their vehicles, like a standout color or unique shape. For these shoppers, the Nissan Cube and CrossCabriolet were two options that could fill that need.

In a recent announcement, however, Nissan drops the Cube and the CrossCabriolet from its 2015 lineup. These were two of Nissan’s most unique designs; but, don’t worry, Nissan has promised it will still be quirky.

 In speaking with Automotive News, Nissan’s chief planning officer, Andy Palmer, said, “To be clear, we will morph this space in our portfolio into something iconic. The space is held to make sure we have something iconic.”

As to what will fill the space, Nissan hasn’t said, but as Automotive News points out, there have been plenty of Nissan concepts that would be a welcome addition, for example, the wedge-shaped BladeGlider or the IDx. And, hey, there’s always the slightly bug-eyed Nissan JUKE.
