Has anyone heard any news about there being a 400Z convertible. All the renderings I've seen are of the 400Z as a hard top. Since the 370Z and Q60 already have convertible versions it would make sense for the 400Z to be the same way. Would anyone consider a 400Z convertible over a hard top? Depending on the styling I'd think about it.

That also works for me too. If it wasn't for the pandemic I'd say "why not both?" but it'll likely be one or the other.
Would love a t-top option. Never liked how a convertible looks with the top up. Anyway, because Nissan is looking to reduce/share platforms, I’d bet there will be no convertible because that requires structural changes that no other FM plateform has anymore.

That is a valid point. They've really been through the wringer over the past little while and I can see them ignoring the convertible.

I would love to see a targa top 400Z. 370Z's look great with them.
Did they ever sell a 370z targa? Dang I would have bought one. The convertible doesn’t look good. What they need to do is make the 400z targa standard. It’s too expensive to engineer two cars. Corvettes are all targas but that is because they planned them that way. The trunk in a z is perfect to hold a top!

Yea do an auto retractable fastback 400z. If the Miata was 25% bigger and had 300+ hp it would be a nice car too. Currently it’s too dang small and slow.. after owning a 350 and 370z. Now I have z4 so I guess I will wait to see how the 400z convertible turns out and wish for a targa.

Nissan can leave a 300Z TT convertible on the table, seeing as how the Z34 370Z and Z35(Z34.5?) 300Z chassis are mostly the same, the engineering work for convertible is mostly already done.

I'm not a fan of sporty convertibles, I have been known to roll a car over once, and ever since I've appreciated a solid roof over my head. I would seriously love the new 300Z TT in T-Tops or targa top for sure, that would be awesome!

If sales are strong maybe they could do a limited edition run of 400Z Targas.

I just want a sunroof.
Yea but sunroofs never work good on tiny roofs. You end up with a tiny sliver that opens and a giant glass panel hanging out in space. Targa is the only way to go. Manual is fine but power would be awesome.

That's fine with me.
I don't like how convertibles and targas ruin body lines.
