Nissan has gone to great lengths to honour the Z-car’s history with the Z Proto, but it’s the most recent history we’re interested in.
For enthusiasts, there’s no greater news than that of a new-generation sports car.
The Nissan 370Z has stayed the course for 11 years, having first launched in 2009, but now a new Z waits in the wings, with some pretty strong clues coming in the form of the production-ready Z Proto concept.
This time the new Z is unlikely to be all-new. Nissan has been tight lipped about how much of the Z Proto has been borrowed from its predecessor, but even a cursory glance reveals carry-over proportions and hardpoints, wrapped in a svelte new skin.
