This is an official Nissan teaser that could be a concept of the new 370Z. The new model is supposed to be 4 inches shorter which would match with the above teaser and this spypic:

Dont forget we have also seen the headlights uncovered and some of the body. We also know it will be upgraded to the 3.7 found in the G37.

Interesting, it looks like it has that same weird headlight thing that came out on the new Maxima.

Just made a bit of a discovery. Both of those chops are a couple of months old and were released to reflect the spypics of the white prototype with headlights etc uncovered.

Look at the sideskirts in both of the chops:




Now look at the official teaser:



Either one artist copied the other, or they were both right, which would lead to the question - how did they know what the sideskirts looks like?

Damn that is ugly as sin. All they have to do is change the headlights and it would look good.

What is the deal with all the "7's" be changed from "5's"?

I wonder how it will change the ride/handling being 4" shorter?

370 is the new nissan's 3.7L engine replacing the 350, 3.5L engine.

It'll be better handling when the car is lower to the ground.

It will be very interesting if they really do make the car smaller. I might actually consider a Z if the rumors of less weight and more power are true.

Nissin/Infiniti is going for funky headlight design.
(Check out official pics of maxima).

IDk, It looks weird, need some times to get used to.
Im excited see official version.
