Photos from a recent Nissan patent filing with IP Australia have revealed what the production model of the 400Z will look like.
They might not have to with how the headlight is shaped.I really hope they don't add side markers where the 350z is. It would ruin the cleaniness of the design. Also if you look at the door handle there is a double outline of the handle. Not sure why that is, I'm assuming its mechnanical, but it makes that area looks pretty ugly. Other than that, The more I look at it the more I like the new design which is more than I can say about the new bmw m3/m4.

It's clearly visible from side and will likely fulfill safety requirements that a marker light would.
I think its time that regulators change it to be only for large vehicles. It makes no difference on our small cars.Nope after further inspecting these images you can clearly see the side marker is right next to the tailights in the profile pic. I mean....that's fine, but it takes away from the cleanliness. What a shame. Why are US laws so garbage.... The Euros don't have to have side markers....So jealous.
Given how bad the last year and a bit has been for Nissan they needed a big win and this is it. If they deviated from the Proto there'd be a lot of backlash.It's pretty cool that what they presented is what we're getting. Even though there are some front and rear features I would change slightly, it's nice for once to get the actual car we're presented with. Great shape and proportions. Restrained design. Aftermarket will be fun on this thing. Impressed they were able to keep the front bumper so clean.
We can always depend on aftermarket support for things like that. Can't be hard to retrofit.I kind of wish they were able to add something larger and more circular inside the headlight casing to mimic the 240, but even if they don't, the lights still look good to me.
I agree, since there's some similarities with the 370Z, aftermarket companies should be able to come up with some crazy stuff.This is a Huge plus for the aftermarket, really. That uncluttered design makes a better aero 'base'. I'm sure there will be variations of splitters, spoilers/wing, diffusers, flares in the works. Wonder how the Nismo variant will look like? Hoping for restraint aero add-ons and not overdone.
