What once was old is new again
Shinichiro Irie joined Nissan’s design department in 1993. Since then he has witnessed the end of the line for the Z32 series in the final 300ZX twin turbo. While the 350Z and the 370Z have had a long and popular run, technology has advanced far beyond what they are capable of. After leading Infiniti into a new era he was rewarded with sculpting the lines of a modern Z Car. It looks just a mysterious as the GTR, with the classic lines of the original Datsun 240.
Without giving away all the car’s secrets, here is a quote from Nissan’s latest press release: “I’m looking forward to seeing it mixing in the world with other wonderfully designed cars. For instance, at the Pebble Beach Automotive Week there are many notable cars on display, but the cars driven around town by the attendees are quite impressive. Spending the whole day strolling through the parking areas is as entertaining for me as the event itself. But, when looking at these vehicles, I felt that I still hadn’t created a car that would look at home next to them. Well, with the new Z, I feel that I have finally done it.”
