It looks like the back of one of those new 300Zx and the front sortav of a 240-280Zx front, like curved like a miata! YUCK! they should keep the old scoops i think;) makes it more individual

NEW Z CONCEPT!!! - almost there.

New Z Concept:
I hope that Concept is the operative word here. The car is a great start in the right direction. Nissan will once again have an affordable 2-seat touring coupe. What I could see of the interior looked good. Give it power steering & brakes, A/C and a good AM/FM?Cassette/CD along with full analog instrumentation (White face gauges?) and it will be an excellent start. Offer it with optional 4 or 6 and it will be better. Add the equivalent of a Motorsport Aero II kit, headlight covers, better wheels & tires, and window tint and it will be great. Keep it at $25,000 and my pet 280 may be looking for a home - 'Course the new car would have to come in a metallic red with a white racing stripe to really pull that off.
Phantom.

NO. It's really Ugly. I would never buy a car that looks like this one.

Perhaps Nissan should work on the front end a little bit more. Right now it's really ugly!! Why don't they take a couple of styling cues from the Porsche C4? I was thinking of going to Detroit to see it in person, but not anymore!! A real disappointment....
