Is there going to be a new development and update for the new 2018 Nissan Z? Considering that the line has been around since 2008 and it has been built on the same platform of the 350Z (which started the launch in 2002), it is probably high time that there will be some improvements for the new line. If Nissan can improve their efforts in the production, they should be doing well with the Z.
Despite the imperfection, you should admit that the Z line has a pretty stylish design and look. But you have to admit that the performance of the ride is pretty so-so. When compared to the Camaro or the Mustang, the 370Z isn’t exactly the type of promising ride that you seek. It is pretty understandable if people are looking for a worthier vehicle with almost the same tag price.
But rumor has it that the company is planning a new 2018 Nissan Z which is said to come with all the promising features. Besides the exterior changes, there will be updates for the interior cabin as well as the engine arrangement. But then again, it is just rumors – don’t get your hopes too high.
The new Z is said to be more responsive and easier to drive because of the lighter feature with the same as ever FM chassis. Despite the old age, this platform is doing good for Nissan for the solid construction. Infiniti has just used the same FM platform for their Q60 so it is pretty safe to think that Nissan will do the same. The new Z is planned to compete with Toyota Supra 2018 or Porsche 718.
Although everything about the Z is based on rumors, it is said that the Z line is possibly available by the end of 2018. Rumor has it that the ride will be using the naturally aspirated engine which is becoming a problem because the emission issue. Price hasn’t been known for this 2018 Nissan Z yet but considering that it is planned to compete against Porsche 718, you can expect it to come within the same tag price.
The new Z will be using the V6 engine with 3.7 liter capacity. Rumor has it that it may be using a hybrid engine, which will definitely affect the price so much. But if Nissan will be using a turbocharged engine, this scheme is more possible for the 2018 Nissan Z.
