Z Return

Nissan has unveiled the next version of its long line of Z cars. Previously, all of the cars were named for the displacement of the engine; the 240Z had a 2.4 liter engine, the 280Z had a 2.8 liter engine, etc. I guess since the new Z actually has a smaller engine than the current edition, Nissan has decided simply to name the car the Z without any number. From the linked piece, a picture:

I commend Nissan for continuing the line of Z sports cars and I hope the car is successful. It will be powered by a 3-liter turbocharged V-6 that generates 400 HP/350 LB-FT of torque. It was thought the new Z might be named the 400Z, perhaps as a reference to the horsepower and as a continuation of practice. The new Z will be available with either a six-speed manual transmission or a nine-speed automatic.

Any thoughts on this car?


I am not feeling that well this morning so I am going to “supplement” today’s post with more pictures.



This is a Ferrari Monza SP2. I guess it’s similar in concept to the McLaren Elva.



I think that’s a great juxtaposition of American performance cars, then and now.
