Conceptz (1)

With Nissan product boss Andy Palmer confirming that the IDx concept car will go into production, the auto world is rejoicing over the prospect of another affordable sports car. But Palmer also let slip some interesting news about the next Z, which will also see a reduction in engine size.

According to Autocar, the next Z will have a downsized turbocharged engine, likely a 4-cylinder, though Palmer didn’t discount a V6 powered Nismo variant. Hopefully we’ll see get a reduction in curb weight and footprint as well, wearing the historic badge but transitioning into the S16 Silvia that never was.
