2009 Nissan 370Z/400Z/WhateverZ?
The good people at GT Channel Auto News have this picture and are calling it the next gen Nissan Z car. I'll refrain from calling it a number at this point, because who knows what they're going to do with it- will it have a neutered (see: non turbo) version of whatever they're sticking under the hood of the GT-R, or will it have the exact same 3.7 VQ found in the forthcoming G37 Coupe? At this point, I have no idea.
Regardless, it's a nice looking evolution, and I know it sounds stupid to say this from just a picture, but it LOOKS smaller- which would fit the mule pictures from last week of what appeared to be a shortened 350Z on a track doing some testing.
We will see.
