- to watch the reveal, go to nissan's website.
the nissan z proto is set to be revealed in full on tuesday, september 15, and will give us a first look at what the redesigned nissan z will look like. the live debut is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. et on the nissan website.
nissan has built up the anticipation for the new sports car with several teasers, including ones that revealed the z could have a manual transmission. other teasers revealed how the z proto will sport a design that is at least partly influenced by the zs of the past, showing off its 240z-inspired headlights and 300zx-inspired taillights.
while nissan has held off on sharing many other details, we speculate that the z proto will be powered by the engine found in the infiniti q50 and q60 red sport, a twin-turbo 3.0-liter v-6. that powerplant will churn out either 300 or 400 horsepower—it differs based on which infiniti it sits in—and we aren't sure which one will be in the z proto. we'll tell you much more once the prototype is revealed on tuesday.
