Whether a Z concept appears or not, this year's Tokyo Motor Show promises to have lots of interesting new sports vehicles on display.

 

Nissan plan to show 13 vehicles - including the Leaf Nismo!

 

I'm looking forward to the potentially lovely Supra, a new S2000, the new Mazda RX rotary concept, a Mitsubishi Evo, etc.

 

What are YOU anticipating?

I'm looking forward to some pleasant surprises, as none of the previews have particularly appealed.  Something that's a good driving tool would be great, rather than another step towards cars driving themselves.


2004 Yaris 1.3 - A flexible engine that likes a few revs, a slightly agricultural gearbox, and will wag its tail with a deft lift - it's basically a small Zed.
2007 350Z - Less a car, more a piece of pornography.

Yes really hope the new Supra is close in design to the concept and has at least 400hp and is not hybrid
No interest in the Nismo minivan...

Quoted from Autoexpress today...

 

"Nissan's long-awaited seventh generation Z-car is expected to feature prominently in Tokyo this year. The successor to the 370Z was teased back in January, sporting an agressive and streamlined body similar to the GT-R flagship. The new Z's chassisis based on the Infiniti Q60. It is understood that the range will start off with a 304bhp 3-litre twin-turbo V6. Hybrid power is also rumoured to be available on the new Z with a combined output of 500bhp. Production of the Z-car is expected to start in 2019."

 

Fingers Firmly Crossed - but I still don't see any proof!

 

 

 

Edit - Carmagazine.co.uk is also mentioning it in its latest update.

Does anyone think we'll see them on the roads in the next 24 months?  My money's staying in my pocket - and not going to Ladbrokes - on this.

 

I just hope it's worth the wait.  Considering the time it's taking, I'm expecting something of the quality of the Lexus LF-A.  Come on Nissan!

Topspeed.com...

 

"The 2017 Tokyo Motor Show has huge potential to bring the goods, especially if Nissan brings a new Z car to the party. Stuck in a rut with the sublime-yet-dated sixth-generation 370Z, Nissan desperately needs to add a new Z to the roster. Could Tokyo be the place we see it? Maybe. If a Z is in the cards, look for a long hood line, cab-back proportions, big wheels, and a tight cabin. Under the hood, the traditional six-cylinder powerplant might even get tossed in favor of hybrid four-cylinder. Again, maybe."

 

 

"sublime-yet-dated" - I like that. Describes the 370 perfectly.

 

Still nothing leaked from Nissan yet. Either they're playing a cool game, or... :(

I'm now just hoping it has six cylinders, so the author of that gets tossed.  If it's just a hybrid four-cylinder I'll be tossed off . . .

Nissan Newsroom are teasing again - I may be wrong, but their latest teaser video doesn't have the feel of a sports car...

 

https://newsroom.nis...dia/videos/list

 

"Join Nissan at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show for the reveal of a new concept model that embodies the future of Nissan Intelligent Mobility."

 

Grabs from the video...

That's an odd looking set of images. There's a Ferrari 458-style wheel arch/wing vent, a large composite flagellation paddle, and a Qashqai hybrid-style front grille.

That suggests to me Nissan's Intelligent Mobility is an SUV with supercar levels of downforce and a bondage kit in the boot (probably instead of a spare wheel). And still I don't want one.

If it was a small, feelsome hatchback, with supercar levels of downforce and a bondage kit and spare wheel in the boot, then I might be interested.

...so you're okay with the bondage kit, then - you just don't like Qashqais.

 

I reckon it's a teaser for an autonomous, electric, characterless, boring, stupefyingly dull, dreary, unstylish milk float with doors and a stereo, but no milk.
