In less than a week's time and, in particular, on Wednesday, 29 October, Nissan is expected to lift the veil of its all-new 370Z with the release of the first official pictures of the sports coupe. Since four days in internet time is like an eternity we thought we'd share this scanned picture from the latest issue of the Japanese car magazine Carmode that was sent to us by our loyal reader Tim. We're not sure if the 370Z in the shot above has been scooped without any camouflage or if it has been lightly photoshopped, but fact is that, from what we've seen floating around the net, it gives us a pretty accurate picture of the sports coupe.
The successor to the 350Z which has been benchmarked against the Porsche Cayman and the next generation BMW Z4 just to mention a few, will make its first public appearance at the Los Angeles Auto Show on 19 November 2008.
While Nissan has adopted the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" kind of mentality for its new sports car, nevertheless the 370Z will boast a more powerful 3.7-liter V6 engine -same as the one used in the Infiniti G37- with power channeled through a 7-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual gearbox, as well as a shorter wheelbase for better handling and a significantly improved interior.
