It’s no secret that us here at Sung’s Garage are very invested in the Z line of sports cars from Nissan. There’s something about them that we can’t resist, and with the news that the next generation Z and the successor to the 370Z is coming soon, this is a very big year for us.
Today, we were thrilled to read that the Japanese marque is giving us a look at a prototype on the 16 September 2020. They’ve given us that date, and a very emotional line about the new car.

“50 years of passion, innovation at its core, modern technology and a nod to 50 years of heritage”, they say, accompanied by the image you can see at the top of this page.
On top of this, the design boss at Nissan Alfonso Albaisa has shared a sketch on his Instagram account, giving us a hint as to what the new Z is going to look like.

Projects with huge meaning do not come every day, on top of that, few projects trigger immediate “slide show” memories like Z. In Tokyo 50 years ago Tai san(Nissan Executive Design Director) saw his first Z and “lights on” wanted to be a car designer. Around the same time but a few thousand miles away a Cuban kid(me😇)in Miami saw his first Z and as well simply “what?WOW”! Tai san later was a designer on the ultra-modern, breathtakingly minimalistic 300ZX, the 2nd clay model I saw on my first trip to design studio in Japan 31 years ago (another huge WHAT?WOW moment). I later found myself working on 350Z, a team dream to find a new language for Z discovering mechanical beauty and road hugging performance posture. More to come but please share and let us know your memorieZ. #nissanz #Powerofz #nissan #datsun240z #nissan350z #nissan300zx #nissan370z #nissannext #fairlady240z
Reading the caption, there’s no doubt this new car means a lot to him, and we’re so excited to share his joy when we lay set our eyes on the sports car, which is more than likely going to bear the name, 400Z.
