It is a top secret to find out anything about new 2016 Nissan 370Z Nismo. From some leaked information we heard it is coming, but it is still officially unconfirmed. Also, some rumors are swirling that legendary sport car could be replaced, but what should we expect, takes time to realize. Some experts predict that this lineup is going to be discontinued. Instead, the Nissan Z could take its place.
2016 Nissan 370Z Nismo styling
We are used to sporty and aggressive appearance of the Z models. So, no one expect anything less from 2016 Nissan 370Z Nismo. It can only be upgraded. With enough time for developing, car could get many changes. We are sure it won’t come out before 2016, but if designers decide to go then, we doubt some radical changes are about to be made. Also, another reason is possible end of the career for 370Z Nismo, so many updates would be unnecessary. If new vehicle, Nissan Z replaces current car, it will be packed with latest technology, so 2016 370Z Nismo could be used as guinea pig for upcoming changes.
2016 Nissan 370Z Nismo powertrain
It is unknown what could be under the hood of this sport car. It depends on other changes and mentioned replacement. However, new Nissan 370Z Nismo won’t produce under 350 hp. We still have to find out what kind of powertain will deliver it. A V6 is certain, but volume is still questionable. Other option could be turbocharged four-cylinder unit. A seven-speed auto gearbox is likely to take place in upcoming models, not only 2016 370Z Nismo.
2016 Nissan 370Z Nismo hybrid
Among many rumors, one of the most interesting story is related to hybrid version. Many things stands contrary to this claims. First of all, company is trying to make 2016 Nissan 370Z Nismo lighter. Electric powering system takes too much weight. Also, rear-wheel platform is likely to be carried over, not just on Nissan 370Z Nismo or Z Nismo vehicle. As the last con, we must mention the price – hybrid models are more expensive, and 370Z is not cheap vehicle.
2016 Nissan 370Z Nismo release date and price
Without official statements, we can only guess about price and release. We expect the 2016 Nissan 370Z Nismo not before 2016. There is no any clue about close timing. Since Nissan is saving on hybrid system, we doubt they would rise their prices for some significant amount.
