  • Is the black roof making it to production? Will it be optional?
  • Is that katana blade making it to production?
  • Is the carbon fiber plastic making it to production?
  • Will there be an upgraded leather interior option?
  • What are the paint options?
  • Will there be color options for the wheels? (black, etc)?

I assume he won't answer these, but ...
  • What's the release date?
  • What's the name of the car?
  • Are we getting those brakes?
  • Is the digital screen standard or optional?
  • Will there be a dual mode exhaust option?
  • Engine size?
  • HP/TQ?
  • Weight?
  • Price?

The black roof and katana blade would be ones I'd ask.

I'd also ask about what Nismo has in store for the Z but there's no way they'd answer that.

  • Is there a reason you chose not to do a single large round headlamp inside the headlight casing to more closely resemble the 240z?
  • Are the vertical slats under the headlights next to the grill in the bumper intended to force air to the brakes or just a styling element?
  • Is that the new Nissan logo? Doesn't quite look like the logo images.
  • Are the black mirrors optional?
  • Are the floor mats proto specific?
  • Is the interior color matched stitching proto specific or intended for production?
  • Are the innards of the grill proto only or intended for production?
  • What made you go with an upward moving line from the door to the front fender?

Great questions everyone. Looking forward to what Road & Track asks compared what we have. A Q&A with reservation holders would be great but I imagine it might dig too deep.

Nothing exciting yet but its great to hear how him seeing the Z32 clay model was a transformative, explosive moment. Due to its minimalism, purity, provocative engineering and effortlessness. Years later we find a lot of that in the Z Proto!

He wanted to capture the 240z in not a casual manner and that can be seen in this side profile comparison.
The overall idea however was a bow to the 300ZX, which is obvious to us now.
