I sure hope it works. It worked for me twice but then the next two time i tried the link it was bad. Im sorry if it is. I tried to copy the pic but I am not allowed because the person who put the pic up made it that no one can copy it. It stays on the site and thats why I had to put on the link.

First of all there isnt a Nissan photo of the front and the baclside would work with the Nissan pic. I like it. You have your opinion and thats fine.

Now that I look at it, the front end, from side view, is to flat and doesn't look to good. Bur the front design looks awsome! the headlights are great! It needs some whell arches and shorter front overhangs. Thats it!

that's the best front end i've seen. a simple evolution of the last 300ZX. it looks awesome. the side profile needs a bit of improvement.

Infiniti

I agree the side profil;e needs work. http://forums.freshalloy.com/forum/images/icons/smile.gif Just a little less flat. It needs to be more angular in profile or a little bit more rounded off. Its just too flat.

kinda bland to me. and the rear doesn't really look like the one Nissan released. looks more porsche-like with that spoiler.
they really went out of their way to protect that bland picture (which could be way off)

it didn't work, but if you're really determined you can just "print screen" and paste into an image editor and upload it to a server (but you probably already knew that) http://forums.freshalloy.com/forum/images/icons/smile.gif

The new pics look tight. But what would be even tighter would be if the headlights stayed flat at low beams and then when you put on the high beams the lights like lifted or like poped out. That would be pretty distinctive. And when behind someone and you flash them to move over they'll know you have a Z with those cool a** lights. The has to be totally different then any car on the market

Guys I got a new Z pic. It looks awsome. The front is gorgeous and I think Hammer Man will actually like it! The profile is sleek and flowing. This would be a great Z if this was the one!

Copy the link and then paste it and when the page opens, click on the first pic on the left hand side. It has a red Z drawing on it, actually two. http://forums.freshalloy.com/forum/images/icons/smile.gif Enjoy guys, and ladies. Give me some feedback!

I may be wrong, but I think the Porsche 928's lights did that

The front end looks like it was lifted off of the new Mr2's.

actually.. its one of them servers where the pic has to be loaded from their server first before you can view it elsewhere... but they couldnt hide the images location from me!

Looks like the MR2? Are you kidding me. The MR2 has headlights that stick up like a Porsche and a hood lower than the headlights, like Porsche. Plus, the MR2 is ugly; at least the front end is. That Z looks nothing like the MR2; those two cars shouldn't even be mentioned in the same breath.

The front is the best I've seen but I really dont like the rear lights too much. Maybe it will grow on me. I saw a Saturn today and saw the rear lights like that. Oh well. We'll see. Very excited about the new Z. Cant wait. I want it Red w/black interior or Pearl white (if they make it.) WOW!!!! I'm getting excited!! http://forums.freshalloy.com/forum/images/icons/smile.gif

I like it. It looks like they took the Z32 and refreshed it. I like the hood, and the spoiler on the rear of the car. There are those weird door handles again. I still don't get what's up with those things, you think it would screw up the aerodynamics. In terms of it matching up with Nissan's sketch, I agree with Infiniti, I think it does match up. The reason I think that more people don't see it is because of the spoiler. Picture this sketch without the spoiler, and you can see a connection

Are you guys sure thats a spolier? It looks like it's intergrated into the hatchback door.

I do like the picture though, but that might be because it looks like the Mercury Cougar so much in the front and the rear. It needs to be a little more original IMO plus I hope those orange front blinkers don't make it to production if it is the production model.

Overall its one of the best pics I've seen so far!

however i dont think the new Z will look too much like the mercury if they stick with that headlight design above...because it will be lower, at a greater slope, and dont forget them fender flares.

by the way, is japan getting this new z?

I dunno guys...

What this pic seems to be missing to me is the "wheel oriented" design that Hirshberg spoke of and we get get a glimpse of in the official Nissan pic. Its too bland and normal and there is no wow factor in it for me. The Steve Eastwood drawings depict a very wheel oriented design and looking at this picture along its lines, it just doesn't capture that flare and aggressive wheel design. Oh well, I love when new pics are delivered to spark our imaginations and dialogue.

Really though, I just plain fired up and ready. I'm more excited about the January Detroit show than I am about any Christmas as a kid! http://forums.freshalloy.com/forum/images/icons/grin.gif

Lets get it on!

Hirshberg did say it was going to have big arches. This isn't the official photo, it could be but the production model would bigger flares. That could be the same exact cat but without the flares, but it could also be way off. No one knows. Its all speculation.

I bet no one knows what the Z will look like not even most of Nissan know what it will look like they just have a general idea thats it...can't tell you how I know this but I got the info from a friend

Thats all I know... They have basic body style and the rear end pretty much done, but they have three or four front ends to chose from so... They really don't know which one it will be

The front air dam looks just like the mr2's the lights look like a cross between the mr2 and the celica

The back end looks confused. I dont like it. As a matter of fact. I hate the back end. Look at the picture, it just does not look "Z-ish" Oh, what the hell, I'm not gonna stress out about it. I'll just wait until I see the real thing at the Detroit Auto Show.

This thing looks like a styling excercise from the late '80's... Its profile looks ponderous and somewhat dated, with elements of the Z31, the Mid-4 and the Z32 (Z32 elements not nearly so nicely done here as with the original...). The front is nice enough in generic sort of way, but it's no Z. The silly back end looks like it was inspired by the designers of the Mach 5... Certainly, this cannot be what we've waited for!

The front end looks like a cross between the 2K Celica and a '98 Supra, just my opinion.

I heard there is going to be 2 Z's one for the US and one for Japan, the rest of the world will probably get the Japanses version.

I thought that the only difference between the Japanese Z and the U.S. Z was that the Japanese Z would use the VQ30DD engine while the United States would get the VQ35DE engine. That is the only difference I have heard of. Can someone verify this?

I just found this thread, wow that pic is a big improvement than the other pics the lower nose is like the F360 Ferrari/last Z and the side is 911ish the whale tail and rear lights kind of S**k (not good) though
