    That will be less than six months after the production version of the Z Proto is unveiled (August 17, 2021)

    This would mean that Nissan would leave the Infiniti Q60’s turbocharged V-6 untouched, which doesn’t seem very likely

    It would also mean that the base Z would be down by 33 horsepower compared to the base 370Z

    It also contradicts reports that the Z will start out at $34,995 or $87 per horsepower, about 402 horsepower if you do the math

    We’ll have to wait and see what happens, but none of this seems all that likely
