This roadster coming from Nissan is said to be a reincarnation of this car producer’s 1969 240Z model, but since this car is still a concept we can’t confirm that. However, Nissan Z35 is probably going to be a replacement of 370Z model. This new model will use lighter materials such as aluminum and lightweight tensile steel inside and out and will therefore be less heavy. Expected weight of this car is only around 1300 pounds. Cars width will also be reduced a bit in comparison to the previous model.

2016 Nissan Z35 design review
Design will be a signature Z model design with a flat rear and plunging front. Previous Z models were always designed with powerful and appealing tone and this model will also continue that tradition. This cars width was altered in order to get better aerodynamics. On the inside, this car will provide enough space for driver and passenger with a decent comfort even though its size is not so big. Interior will be modern and it is designed to provide luxurious drive. Since this car is a new generation vehicle, we can’t for sure what it will feature but we can predict based on the previous models. We expect this car to have latest technological equipment that will make driving enjoyable such as USB port, connectivity to smart phones, a display screen etc.
