Motor Authority spoke with a representative from Nissan and were able to confirm that there won't be a 2021 370Z.


On Tuesday Nissan spokesperson Dan Passe confirmed to Motor Authority that sales of the 2020 Nissan 370Z will be extended into the 2021 model year while the world waits for the new Z car expected for 2022.

Nissan trimmed the Z lineup in 2020 when it killed the roadster model after the 2019 model year. The 2020 model saw the introduction of the 50th Anniversary Edition, which was a $2,600 option.

This is still what has given me hope that those rumblings (from one source, might I remind) about the Z being released in 2022 as a 2023 model were off-base. It just doesn't make sense unless they are literally unable to get production rolling during the calendar year 2021.

Yeah I can't see Nissan sitting on the Z for that long. If it was a 100% new car maybe i can understand but since it shares a lot with the 307Z it shouldn't be an issue to get production started.

Exactly. This is too close to production-ready for that kind of delay unless it is based on some unavoidable reality of the manufacturing process given the current pandemic environment. This is essentially a parts-bin car, at least most of the way. A very nicely-executed parts-bin car, but they're straight up playing Legos with existing components for much of this.

The only thing that I see that could be an issue is the global semiconductor shortage.

Nissan has had to lower its sales forecast because of it.
