Since the arrival of the first Nissan Fairlady Z in 1970, drivers around the world have been captivated by this truly one-of-a-kind sports car. Featuring innovative, stylish design without a cringe-inducing price tag, the Nissan Z series have always been popular choices for automobile enthusiasts seeking a powerful all-around sports car for city driving and fun on the track.
To understand why the re-introduction of the 2021 Z is so hotly anticipated, it is important to look back on the fabled timeline of this outstanding line of cars. The Z-series first cut its teeth in high-intensity races, becoming a true star of the track circuit. With some of the best racers and most popular celebrities of the ‘70s driving Z’s, it should come as no surprise that the car gained massive global appeal in only a matter of years.
With the introduction of the 300ZX in the 1980s, Nissan had cemented its reputation as the manufacturer of one of the world’s greatest sport vehicles. A de facto choice among the Hollywood elite as well as driving professionals, the 300ZX turned heads (and corners) with relentless effectiveness.
The 350Z, first introduced in 2009, was purchased in droves by admirers of the car and the brand. 350Z’s could be spotted in major Hollywood productions as well as on highways and city streets around the world… Now, in its 11th year of existence, the 350Z still commands respect wherever it is spotted.
Nissan’s announcement that a 2021 edition of the Z-Series has generated a fury of speculation. With details still incredibly vague – even the name of the sports car has not been confirmed – drivers are left to wonder just what they will find when Nissan unveils the sports car within the upcoming months. Although it’s too early to tell what we’ll find under the hood or in the driver’s seat, car buyers can expect a substantial improvement in performance and a dramatically re-imagined driver and passenger experience. The sheer immensity of technological improvements that have occurred since 2009 all but guarantees that the 2021 Nissan Z redesign will reimagine what is possible with this vehicle. Rumor has it this next-level technology might soon be known as the 400z..but we’ll have to wait and see!
