Is Nissan Up To Something That'll Anger Z-Car Fans?

Teaser

They wouldn't do this, would they?

For a while we heard Nissan was planning to replace its current Z-car, the 370Z, with something smaller, lighter, and more efficient. Think a Subaru BRZ fighter of some sorts, but still a true RWD sports coupe. And then came the silence. For months we haven’t been given any updates regarding this project, and now we’re concerned even more. The arrival of this teaser image is why. Nissan will reveal its new Crossover Concept next week at Frankfurt and, although details are scarce at the moment, the following concept description was provided:

“Nissan pioneered the crossover sector with its amazingly successful Juke, Qashqai and X-Trail ranges…so can Nissan continue to innovate and move the bar higher? What if Nissan created a new way to feel driving excitement?” To us, that’s hinting at a sporty crossover and, because numbers don’t lie, crossover sales are much, much higher than those of sporty coupes. We’ll find out what’s up next week.
