2019 Nissan 400Z. While a Nissan car looks like half a Mercedes, half of Mercedes cars are weird at first, remembering it will not be the first time the two companies sit together. If you are not aware of the advance, the Infiniti QX30 is essentially the front-end GLA Mercedes. What’s more, given Toyota’s success in developing the 86 / BRZ with Subaru and its plans to replicate with the BMW Collab Supra program, the Z is not too far away if you think about it. Coupe and 370Z models are replaced. The coupé has been sold since 2009. The problem is that sports cars usually have a weak profit, although there are exceptions. Last week we heard Mercedes-Benz approached Nissan about a possible partnership, similar to what BMW and Toyota did with Z4 and Supra coming. Nissan said thanks but no doubt because Mercedes wanted someone to participate in the development of the next SLC (for road only) with, but Nissan know sellers are the worst sellers of coupes.
Based on this latest report, we were given another reason why Nissan refused the Mercedes offer: Infiniti already has the goods, dubbed the Q60. The upcoming Q60, which will take part in the new rear-wheel drive, engines and electronics, will also be working on the new Z. Dimensions, all cars will be very similar, which means that the new 2019 Nissan 400Z car will be slightly larger than the 370Z. And yes, Nissan will launch a new Joodster Z, but this is not expected to happen before 2021.
Scratch this idea. Today, the source has a new report claiming that not only has Nissan given the next Z car a green light, but it is also a high-performance Nismo version. The new Nismo is supposed to be powered by a 3.0-liter V6 engine with about 475 horsepower and 451 lb-ft of torque, with power distribution on the four wheels. The standard Z, which is scheduled to arrive sometime in 2019 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the original 240Z, will also be involved in this engine, although it will produce about 399 horsepower and 350 lbs. The 370Z today, for comparison, has 332 horsepower and 269 lb ft while the Nismo offers 350 hp and 276 lb ft. Needless to say, the name of the new Z-9, which is rumored to be 2019 Nissan 400Z, but Nissan has not made it clear yet.
According to the source, the concept of the new 2019 Nissan 400Z is scheduled to decline at the Tokyo Motor Show in October this year before the release of the Los Angeles cash-back version at the end of 2019. The coupé is expected to reach the showrooms in 2020 with its convertible Convertible Nismo variants releasing in 2021.
