Default Nissan committed to replacing 370Z and GT-R

Nissan committed to replacing 370Z and GT-R
ďThere are no golden rules and we are particularly open,Ē he said. ďThere are some elements you canít play with as these are brand icons. There is a limit to what you can share and commonise, with expectations not to go beyond what customers expect from a brand.

ďThere are challenges and difficulties that will force us outside to look at different options but there are important to us.Ē

When asked about the potential for the Nissan 370Zís successor to go electric, Espinosa said that it was something Nissan was ďdiscussing all the timeĒ. However, he questioned whether traditional sports car buyers were ready to go electric, and said that the weight the battery would bring to a sports car would be a challenge that had to be overcome.

These were things that Espinosa said Nissan was ďworking onĒ but had yet to make a decision on.

Speaking separately at the show, Nissanís Senior Vice-President for Design, Alfonso Albaisa, said that the firm would never abandon its Z car heritage.

ďItís easy to imagine [a successor to the 370Z]. The Z is the car that democratised sports cars back in the sixties. Before that you had to have the money to buy a Porsche or Jaguar. The current car has been a long time in the dealerships, and so you can imagine the designers working on a successor, even if I am not going to confirm it."
