Leaked: Is This the Production Nissan 400Z?

400Z Captured

  • Leaked photos appear to show a 400Z in transit

  • Looks wonderfully close to the Z Proto concept


It looks like we have our first look at the production version of the 2022 Nissan 400Z thanks to an Instagram user who has spotted the vehicle, or what looks like it, at least, being unloaded after shipping.

The images, posted by user laidoutc4 (via MotorTrend) show a decidedly Z-like sports car being unloaded at a warehouse facility. They look like the patent images we’ve seen of the car already, and the photos also show a car that looks a lot like the Nissan Z Proto concept that Nissan put on display last September. The nose isn’t a match, with this captured car having smaller headlights and a more menacing front grille, but everything else seems right. The taillights look even more 300ZX-inspired on this one, which is a cool touch for the 400Z model.

Other easily spotted changes include a rear deck spoiler as well as side marker lights, and while there are no Z badges, that’s because Nissan (or someone with the shippers) has cleverly taped over the badges and left us completely fooled and flummoxed as to what this shape could possibly be.

An interior shot features what looks like a pretty cool automatic gear selector that looks almost sad sitting by itself in the massive space where a stick shift will also reside. Note the conventional handbrake lever and manual climate control dials sitting below the large touchscreen. Oh, and they forgot the Z on the steering wheel.

So while we’re not 100 percent sure this is the 2022 400Z production version, it certainly looks like it is. And it suggests that it won’t be long before we see the real thing.
