Very interesting! Maybe they have gone with some aggressive options, after all...

Here's a story on it:

Looks like its in the Nissan facility in AZ for camo. Guessing we’ll these being tested soon. I wonder if they will let some journalists get behind the wheel for some teaser first impressions?

Not sure how I feel about the blue interior, but maybe this hints at a possible release this year due to additional options being leaked. Here’s to wishful thinking.

Note that there are two taped off areas on the rear light bar:

Could mean that there is additional badging on this one.

I believe the one taped off in the middle is the Nissan logo and the one taped off to the right says “Z”. I wish they had put a “Z” badge on the trunk lid instead because I think having it on the back like that throws off the symmetry of the tail light assembly.

Agreed, that is a strange decision they've seemingly made. I will reserve final judgement until I actually see it but I definitely have a different preference on the placement.

Nice find @Tsuki good share. If the rumors of BMW-like colors are true, I'd like to see the cinnamon especially with the gray/silver exteriors, always wanted that color much more than red.

I hope this isn't the only bold interior color Nissan goes with. It's not my first choice but it could look great with the right paint to match.
I'm with you - probably not my first choice but I have been hoping that Nissan would make some exciting decisions with respect to the colors for both interiors and exteriors. I want the cars to be sort of customizable. Factory-spec sports cars that are unique and individual at this end of the price spectrum are basically unheard of.

Unless you're paying a a lot of money not many companies can offer real customization for customers. Mini comes to mind but even then you can pay a lot for the amount of car you get. If Nissan can offer something like that with the Z that doesn't break the bank it makes it even more appealing.

Bingo. I hope that there are some cool optional features that are stand-alone and not inherently tied to whatever packages end up on offer. Mini does offer that sort of thing but, man, does it ever get pricey (my mother has had a few of the newer Cooper S models).

And welcome to the forum @Tsuki ! You planning to buy a new Z?
I sure hope so, I was putting away cash for a Z32 TT right before the whole Nissan Next thing went down but changed my mind on that once I saw the Z Proto. I just hope the dealer markup doesn’t push a base model into Supra and Type R territory.

I don't think dealer markup will last long. The Supra didn't see markup past a few months, and I know of many people that got theirs at or below MSRP in 2019. I still don't understand the Type R hype myself. You should still get a Z32 if you can though because they are great vehicles and a lot of fun.
