Some quotes from Automobile Magazine:

"The rear suspension is a multi-link design currently seen in the high-performance Skyline GTR, and its built in aluminum to reduce unsprung weight"

"Brembo brakes are expected to be a part of the production car (although the expensive six-piston front calipers are not likely to make it)"

"The wheelbase and track virtually match that of the Chevrolet Corvette ...."

".. we hear talk the internal target is a healthy 300 horsepower ....."

They also said that the lead suspension engineer, Kazutoshi Mizuno, was the general manager of the team that won the Daytona 24 hours in 1992 with a Nissan Group C car. If all these bits of information are accurate, they should add up to one great car.

For having wheelbase and track dimension similiar to the C5, the Z concept comes across as being considerably smaller. The shorter overhangs make the Z look more upright.

Interesting.
