Is it just me or does that thing look like it can go offroading? Sports cars are supposed to be sleek and low to the ground not bloated . They won't be getting my $25K I'll stick with my 280 turbo thank you.
Thats the rear end of a mercury cougar bolted to the front end of a new chevy camaro..with a volkswagen beetle engine.
..Cover the rest of the car and look at only the nose!! ITS A CAMARO! Yet, chevy wouldnt think of putting a 4 banger in a NEW camaro?
Give me a real retro-z look and a potent inline 6 and a target of $25,000 and under (would pay $30-35K for one of those RB26DETT's under the hood)
Sorry Nissan, i'm keeping my 260. Maybe they should have stuck with the restoration plan of refurbing old z's -- but put brembo 4 pots at all corners, a suspension from **** and an RB series engine...with a factory warranty -- now thats a new z.

Quite a disappointment. I got excited when I saw the artist's rendering of the new Z on p. 66 of the Dec. 1998 Motor Trend. The chrome bumperettes w/ the integral marker lights were a distinctive touch, but didn't appear to make it onto the car show concept. If that orange thing they showed in Detroit is the best Nissan's designers can do, then maybe it's time for the bankrupt corporation to negotiate a merger with one of the more successful automakers.
