First 370z coupe was launched in 2008 in LA and it was new model which started sixth generation of legendarz Z-line of the sport vehicles. It is also known as Nissan Fairlady in Japan. It was later launched in many other variants, such as Roadster, Nismo, and special editions for 40th anniversary and Nurburgring. Now, new 2019 Nissan 370z could face dramatic changes which can change this model forever. We used to this model in coupe version, and new, crossover type of sport car could be launched. We still don’t know if it is going to be only one version, or only model produced for 2019 season. Crossover needs bigger engine, so there will be changes under the hood for sure.

The 2019 Nissan 370z should be made on the Gripz concept, which was presented at Frankfurt Motor Show. If that happens it is almost certain that coupe is heading to new era. Crossover 370z is likely replacement of existing sport car, and possibly some models from SUV range. Another fact is that Nissan never launched Z vehicle as crossover, so it is another step in their production.
