Next Nissan Z Will Have Turbo-4, V6 Option Still Viable, Coming in 2016
When it does, it will be smaller, lighter and more efficient. We also expect it to be cheaper to allow more people to enjoy Nissan sportscar, which is good for the brand.
The new model will be arriving with a four-cylinder turbocharged engine, a first since the days of the 240Z. However, Palmer says V6 enthusiasts shouldn’t be worried, since a V6 version is still very much a possibility.
So what sort of engine will be used by the downsized Nissan. Well, both the Nissan Juke and Renault Clio use a 1.6-liter turbo, while the Renault Megane RS offers a 265 PS 2.0-liter turbo. It’s not hard to believe to believe the 2.0-liter can be tuned to 300 horsepower.
