Rendered Speculation: Nissan 240/Fairlady Z

The Nissan Z-cars usually refers to the sportscars manufactured by the brand, this range currently only has one occupant in the form of the 350Z. We already know this model will go slightly upmarket with its new 3.7 liter engine which will see the model renamed as 370Z, thus it leaves a large enough gap in its portfolio to launch a new model.

An entry level rear-wheel-drive sportscar has been stuck in the rumour mill over the last couple of years and these new renderings from Polish designer Iacoski are only likely to stimulate the discussions once again.

Iacoski's love of the old Fairlady inspired him to create a new modern version, the long front bonnet, short rear end and smooth curvaceous roof profile clearly pays homage to the series. Obviously recent Nissan design styles have influenced the renderings, we can clearly see a front fascia mimicking the design of the GT-R.
