Latest Nissan 400Z Rendering Shows A Retro Design Theme

This latest rendering of the anticipated Nissan 400Z has the proper feel, but it isn’t perfect.


  • Numerous styling cues seem inspired by the original 240Z.
  • This rendering blends conservatism and modern touches.

The replacement for the aged Nissan 370Z has become the talk of the town. The build-up to its arrival is growing steadily and this latest rendering explores solid styling clue indicating what the new Nissan 400Z will actually look like.

Nissan 400Z Will Be Electrified In The Near Future

Much like the C8 Chevrolet Corvette and the 992 Porsche 911 before it, the Nissan 400Z is the next big sport car reveal and will grab hold of countless headlines over the coming weeks and months.

This rendering shared on 1302video.com’s Facebook page, and the photo collage that goes along with it, clearly shows that Nissan could and might allow itself to be heavily influenced by the original Fairlady Z or the 240Z.

The rendered 400Z’s roofline is very similar to that of the 370Z, as is the windowed surfaces. As always, the Z features a long hood, short overhangs, and a relatively long wheelbase. The big changes are up front where the headlights are far more conservative and in line with the 240Z’s round sealed-beam units, and it works. The rear is also inspired by the 240Z however the taillights and surrounding bezel, as well as logo location, look far more Mustang than 240Z. There’s a hint of 1990s 300ZX in the mix but if almost everyone sees Ford Mustang first, it’s a bust.

Overall, the rendering depicts a simply-styled car which is what the Z was always supposed to be. It’s affordable, quick, and fun to drive. We look forward to getting the full scoop from Nissan.
