Next-Generation Nissan 370Z Rendered, Looks Like a Modern Fairlady Z

It was 2008 when Nissan introduced the current 370Z (for the record, the also-reigning R35 GT-R had landed one year before). And with the arrival of a replacement approaching, we can now turn to the rendering we have here for some proper design inspiration.

This pixel play portrays the next incarnation of the Nissan Z car and does so by using a retro approach. To be more precise, this proposal brings back the iconic styling cues of the Datsun 240Z (call it Fairlady Z if you must use its Japanese name).

So, whether you behold this splendid machine from behind, from the side or look at it from up front, you'll be reminded of the 1969 original that was the first generation of Z two-seater toys.

Then again, this proposal includes all the modern design bits a production sportscar of the sort would need. As for the wheels of the machine, the tuning aficioandos among you might've already y recognized the Volk TE37V design.

Given the fact that Nissan needs all the help it can get for boosting the image of the newcomer, the carmaker could play the retro design card and bring us an approach similar to the one we have here.

Meanwhile, we've recently published the first spyshots of the next-gen Z car - right now, this is a test mule concealing new hardware under the body of the current car, as you can notice in the gallery above.

And while a turbocharged V6 seems like a reasonable expectation for the newcomer's top dog version, there's not much else we can talk about at the moment.What about the designer of this concept?
Le Yang Bai, the designer behind this stunt, went to great lengths to portray his idea. As such, you'll get multiple views of the vehicle in the social media posts at the bottom of the page.

Oh and while the white sportscar featured in the image above seems to be the headliner, the said pixel master also created a dark version.

For the record, the resume of the artist involves internships for China's SAIC Motors, Chinese-headquartered Icona Design Group (its studios sit in Turin, Shanghai and Los Angeles), Chinese BYD Auto, as well as a permanent design position for Nevada-based Ryft, a company that makes stunning-looking exhaust systems.
