Things are getting more and more interesting when talking about the Nissan 370Z successor. According to the latest reports, the new Nissan Z will get smaller but powerful models that will carry Mercedes-Benz technology as well as an impressive design.
If the current version was developed mainly for the United States and Japan, the successor will become a global sports car. As a result, the convertible version will receive a retractable hard-top, but a new model will also arrive with a targa top or a t-bar roof.
The decision to introduce a targa version is that is that Nissan wants to reach a wider section of potential customers.
Under the hood we will probably see a the 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine but also a 3.0-liter direct-injection petrol engine supplied by Mercedes-Benz, delivering over 330 hp.
Apparently, both engines will get a hybrid unit, a parallel hybrid system where the electric motor is mounted between the engine and transmission. A Nismo version of the upcoming Z successor will also be offered by Nissan.
