Between the 370Z and the GT-R, you could make the argument that Nissan already has a pretty solid lineup of sports cars.

The last time we saw this two-door beauty was in 2002 with the S15, and we think the time is right for a follow-up S16 generation to round out the Japanese automaker’s performance offerings.
