Nissan 370Z and Infiniti Concept images surface
Nissan has revealed a glimpse of three future cars: a new Infiniti Concept, the Nissan 370Z and the Nissan Cube.
The Infiniti concept previews a sports car that will compete with models like BMW 1 series, Audi A3 and the Mercedes C Class. The teaser reveals a very long bonnet and an unusually cab-backward stance for a smaller sibling to the existing G37 coupe.
The 2009 Nissan 370Z will make its official debut in November at the Los Angeles Auto Show and sales will begin in early 2009. The 370Z will be powered by the 3.7 liter V6 engine from the Infiniti G37.
It will be a rear-wheel drive – and possibly four-wheel steer, as available on the Infiniti. Engineers are keen to preserve the no-nonsense driving qualities that have made the Z a popular mid-market choice, especially among US enthusiasts where the bulk of Z models have been sold.
The 2009 Cube will make its debut later this year in Japan, but it will be a global model, with European sales to begin in early 2009.
