It's been a long time coming, but the wait for the next Z from Nissan looks like it was worth it. The wraps came off at the Nissan Pavilion in Yokohama, Japan, revealing a car that pays respects to the original Fairlady Z with clean, modern lines without being a copy — the Z Proto's design is all its own. The long hood and fastback shape is immediately recognizable as a Z. The square, upright grille opening and headlights bring past Z styling cues to the future while moving to the rear reveals LED-accented taillights that recall the 300ZX. The Z has always been a sports car, and under the hood is a twin-turbo V6 — hello, GT-R — making 400 horsepower mated to a real three-pedal six-speed manual transmission. Nissan also emphasized a nimble, lightweight chassis and tech like a digital gauge cluster and infotainment screen. No announcement was made about production, but expect the Z Proto to arrive in showrooms nearly exactly as it is now.
