It sags in the rear like the old 2+2s did. Thats just f-ing ugly if that in deed is the final design.

I can't believe how ugly that rendering is. I really hope the production model is at least a little better.

do you actually beleive nissan will put a v8 in a Z? it's unconventional, especially for a japanese car. Look at the GTR for instance, V6, and it's a supercar. Theres no need to put a V8 in a z, and theres no way in hell it would be a 3.7 ltr V8, that would take away from it being a 370Z.



and thats the worst rendering ever, it looks like someone took a GTR, a altima, and a Z and mixed it together wtf

Man looks like we have some torque haters in here for sure. Im all about the V8 Z. That would be so awesome since thats about the only thing i think thats missing from my Z is about 400 hp and alot of torque. I think it would be great to have some engine options with the car. Ill take the G-nose V8 car asap please!!

from 7 tune:
Best car interviewed Z34 Chief of Production Shinjiro Yukawa last month and he confirmed that a V8 could see the light of day in a special edition model. Yukawa mentioned he wanted to “raise the performance of the new Z” while also acknowledging the Porsche Cayman S as being the Z34’s primary contender.

Whether i think it'll happen or not is totally irrelevent.. Would i buy one if i could afford.. YES. We spend day and night when not working or driving or living life (lol) trying to get more power out of our cars. This takes away alot of that guess work..

They might do it because Toyota will probably have a optional v8 for the new supra.

Like I said, I'll beleive it when I actually see it on the showroom floor, and not beleiving everything I read on the internet, You should do the same and stop speculating on something that doesn't even exist yet!

did you know about 2 and 3 years ago people were seculating a 450z, I guess their finally going for it LOL.
