When it comes about fantasy, the human mind knows no limits. This is what helps us to create, and to predict how things will look like in the future. And when it comes about cars, this rules applies even more.

This sketch appeared on the Autoweek.nl Magazine and estimates the 2009 Nissan 390Z, the coupe that will replace the current 350Z.

The 390Z will be powered by, yes you guest, a 3.9 liters V8 engine.

Screw the V8s and bring on the V6 turbos. Turbos belong on the 350Z or any Z model that comes out.

This is a bull rendering. It was sketched by a guy named Emre Husmen. He created the concept as a portfolio builder only, he does not work for the Nissan design team. As for the name 390Z, he made it up — Nissan has no 3.9 litre V8’s in their stable, and I sincerely doubt they’d create one just for a Z-car. Notice how they typically out their engine designs across multiple models; no other model would find any use for a low displacement V8.

Why not just make it an even 5.0L? It’s headed in that direction anyway, right?
