Nissan teases next Z in new video

Nissan has announced a plan to get itself back on track. The automaker knows it’s in terrible shape at the moment and Nissan CEO Makoto Uchida believes a four-part plan is what the ailing brand needs. Is it enough? We’re the wrong ones to ask, but we are excited to see the arrival of a fresh Z car.

In a Twitter video announcing the new plan, Nissan shows that it has committed to 12 models for its transformative lineup. The video highlights a handful of cars from A to Z. It’s that Z we’re most interested in learning more about. The next Z needs to get here as soon as possible, as the current 370Z is ancient. It offers no compelling reason for purchase over any of its potential competition, and I say that as a long-time Z car lover.

Here’s to hoping the new car is a proper evolution over the current one. And now’s a great time for the Z to make a comeback, as the Supra has opened the door to JDM sports car imagination… but maybe haven’t executed as perfectly as some had hoped.

One letter notably absent from that video above? G. Looks like the GT-R isn’t getting the attention it too deserves. That makes sense, however, given that Nissan needs to right this ship and a halo supercar isn’t what Mr. K would be ordering.

    Nissan should introduce a fresh ZZ car.

      No, no, the ZZ was a Mitsubishi (which, yes, linked to Nissan now) which probably doesn’t have enough room to fit Billy Gibbons’s beard.

    I see some Datsun Z, 350/370Z, maybe some F-Type, and a little BRZ/86.

    Can’t wait to see the whole thing.

    Also, where is the GTR…

    OK, I’m intrigued.

    Hopefully they keep the price down, dated as the 370Z is, there’s big appeal in such an affordable bruiser.

    Although, it looks like it’s closer to a retro 240Z, which I like.

    So should we speculate on whether the 2021 Frontier will get its four cylinder back or is dead now? It’s no longer in the 2020. You wouldn’t think Nissan would want to give up a low end seller like that but maybe it wasn’t a money maker for them.
