I wonder if it would do the residuals a bit of good?

I think it will.
There is a place for the last non hybrid sports cars. This really is the end of an era.
I see there is a brand new GTR with 12K off wonder how long that deal will last.

Once this conjecture takes hold I can see new ones going back to list. And it looks like the MY20 specs for both cars are the last we will see in Europe...

There's no mention of sports cars in this but its an interesting read as the Alliance companies agree to carve up market segments between them...

I've heard that the MY20s of both models will be the last sold by Nissan in Europe. Totally unofficial as yet.
And someone else has suggested there could be a couple of special editions (like they did with the 350) to get rid of build parts....

More official details:

But you still have to read between the lines regarding sportscars and, to some extent, Europe.

And on the Beeb... https://www.bbc.co.u...siness-52829348

 

"On Thursday, Nissan also outlined plans to reduce the range of models of cars and trucks available in order to cut costs.

It said it would reduce the number of models from 69 to about 55 over the next few years, focusing instead on electric vehicles and sports cars."

Not sure where they got that last part from...

Just read that BBC article myself. Would be nice if that sports car bit is true, but unfortunate and sad times for Nissan overall which is a shame.

There is a separate 370 successor thread also discussing this which has a link to a marketing clip on futures under the title the A to Z of Nissan cars.
As you may guess, the 12 models featured include a Z, but interestingly nothing beginning with G!

They can't take the GT-R away from us can they? :cry:

That's from the statement I quoted in the A-Z thread: 
 

Cut through some of this statement:
 
 
Bad: "Focusing Nissan’s core operations in the markets of Japan, China and North America"
 
Good: "Focusing on global core model segments including enhanced C and D segment vehicles, electric vehicles, sport cars"
