The production version of the new Nissan Z, likely called the 400Z, will debut on August 17, 2021.
It'll be powered by a twin-turbo V-6 engine, and we'll know all the performance specs at the reveal. It should make around 400 horsepower.
The 2022 400Z is expected to arrive by the end of the year starting at around $40,000.
Nissan revealed the Z Proto (pictured) last fall as a production-intent prototype. That car was meant to give us an idea of what'll be sold in the States, likely as the 400Z. Nearly a year after it showed the prototype car, Nissan will finally reveal the production version of the new Z on August 17, 2021.
Images of what appear to be the production car have already leaked, and they showed that it won't be far off from the Z Proto we saw last fall. The cars, finished in dark gray and silver, had chrome trim integrated into the grille, slightly larger headlights, different wheels, and a rear decklid spoiler. The Z badge on the C-pillar will also make it to production.
The new Z will use a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine, and although Nissan hasn't said anything about its output, we expect it to offer around 400 horsepower. It's a modified version of the engine found in the Infiniti Q50 and Q60. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, but there's also an optional automatic gearbox.
We'll know the full details in a few months, including all the performance specs, which should create a compelling matchup against the 382-hp Toyota Supra. The 2022 Nissan 400Z should be on sale by the end of the year starting at around $40,000.
