Carrying bits from every past Z.

Nissan has finally unveiled its Z Proto — a precursor to its 2021 400Z. Aligned with the Z’s 50the anniversary, the Z Proto carries a lot of design cues that pay homage to its rich history and pay respect to the Datsun days.

Although less circular, the extension of the headlamp shape onto the front bumper, along with the shaped hood, are all traits taken from the 240Z, while the large rectangular grille points back to the 350Z. On the rear, you’ll also notice tail lights that are directly borrowed from the 300ZX, seeing an array of pill-shaped tail lights that hug the backside along with the bumper.

Powering the Nissan Z Proto is a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine that’s matched with a six-speed manual gearbox. This could be the same 400 horsepower engine that’s making its way into the upcoming 400Z. We expect that this new look is going to be quite polarizing, you’re either going to love it or hate it, although it is nice to see Nissan listening to its devote Z fans. Stay tuned for the upcoming 2021 400Z unveiling.
