Nissan Drops Teaser For New Z – It Kind of Looks Like a Modern 240

In recent years, there have been a lot of developments in the world of the factory performance car. With the 2020 model year, we would see the actual release of a mid-engined Corvette and a Toyota Supra revival. These are a couple of concepts that have been talked about for years. However, I’m not too sure that there were very many enthusiasts who could confidently say that they were expecting either one to actually materialize. Lo and behold, we’re living in an era where the Corvette is as close to a supercar as ever and a modern Supra is roaming the streets.
It’s an interesting time to be a car enthusiast, that’s for sure.
With that in mind, it leads us to question what we will see in the future of the automotive industry. Sure, maybe the idea of the Corvette changing its engine location was something that was bound to happen sooner or later. However, I know I speak for more than myself when I say that I had suspected the Toyota Supra would have been laid to rest forever with the MK4. The year 2020 said otherwise.
Therefore, it stands to reason that, if Toyota can bring back the Supra after all of these years, that anything could happen.
It seems like Nissan fanatics are on that same train of thought, especially after a recent teaser from the brand. In a commercial that has hit the trending list on YouTube, Nissan shows off silhouettes of a variety of different models. Included in this list, the most notable might be the Z car at the end.
While the silhouette does look somewhat familiar, it’s hard to pinpoint exactly where it’s from. One comment speculates that it shares some appearance details with the Nissan 240z. Other comments seem to point toward the idea that Nissan may be reviving another vintage nameplate. Of course, the brand has to be moving forward. However, it leads us to wonder if maybe they will borrow a couple of styling cues from a Nissan of old.
