Various kinds of stories about 2019 Nissan Z we can hear these days, but if we can make our own prediction, it will probably carry on for another year, without bigger changes. The famous Z series has been around for almost five decades and for that time we have seen numerous amazing models.
The current 370Z has been around since 2009. Considering its age, it seems natural to expect the redesign as sooner as possible. The problem is that the new model is still in the early stage of development and that chances for so quick release are minimal.
Because of that, the 2019 Nissan Z will come pretty much unchanged, while a complete redesign is expected for about a year or two. Until then, expect no bigger changes.

The main things that keep this car so competitive despite its age are performances and its engine. The 2019 Nissan Z will continue in the same way. It will feature the same 3.7-liter V6 engine, which delivers 332 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. It comes in pair with a 7-speed automatic transmission.

It goes around 18 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on a highway.

The price should also remain unchanged, which means that the base model should go around 31.000 dollars. When it comes to competition, it seems pretty tough these days. There are several great models in the class, such as Audi TT, Mercedes SLC, Alfa Rome 4C, Porsche 718 and others.
