Nissan Z might be dead article

I found this article

https://www.motorauthority.com/news/...-might-be-dead

In light of the success of the GTR does Nissan need Z's?

Skylines/GTR's were always the performance saloon and Z's the sports cars. GTR's have become sports cars and Z's have morphed into something similar.

The obvious solution is for Z's to reduce in size and perhaps be redesigned to a simpler style, my preference is this.

and the most dreadful one that will make you sick is

Been saying it for years, the 370 can't compete at that spec level and Nissan should have brought out something on the scale of the Toyota GT86 and why not a convertible using a smaller engine for a Fairlady revival ?

On the smaller Z scene, Toyota can do it :

and so can Honda :

but our biggest hurdle is ol' Carlo and maybe soon he eff off : http://fortune.com/2017/06/07/renaul...r-a-successor/

Agree with your thoughts on both those concept cars, Doug. That first one was from 2009! Be hard to improve much on it I think. Maybe the back could be less Marcos-like but apart from that, looks really good, profile is spot on.

The gold thing, there are just no words!
