Nissan’s new small sports car confirmed image

The Japanese based automaker Nissan has recently announced its plans to introduce a new sports car which will be slotted below the facelifted 370Z.

The upcoming small Nissan sports car will not be a rival for the Toyota GT 86 / Scion FR-S or Subaru BRZ and it will be aimed towards younger drivers, following the same path as the Juke. The model in question has been recently confirmed for production by Andy Palmer, the company’s vice president, in an interview with Car and Driver.

“It’s like Marmite. You’ll love it or hate it”, as Andy Palmer told the guys at Car and Driver.

The new sports car will be smaller and it will be slotted below the 370Z facelift, but unfortunately this is all we’ve got on the model for the moment. As a quick reminder, the facelifted version of the Nissan 370Z has been officially unveiled a year ago and it has a revised front fascia, a redesigned front bumper and two vertical LED daytime running lights. The engine hasn’t been updated and we can still find the 3.7 liter V6 under its hood, producing 324 HP (241 kW), which is allowing the model to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.5 seconds.
