In almost exactly one month Nissan will finally reveal the production-spec version of the new 2022 Nissan Z and put it on display at the 2021 New York Auto Show.

In anticipation for the big reveal and the beginning of a new generation of Z cars, here's what we know so far about the Z35.

Release Date:

Nissan will officially reveal the Z on August 17, 2021 in an event in New York City. Following the reveal Nissan will have the production-spec Z on display at the New York Auto Show that runs from August 20 - 29.

According to sources from Nissan, Orders for the Z aren't expected to open until November 15th.


Nissan has yet to release pricing for the Z but once it's revealed in August according to reports it could be somewhere between $34,995 and $40,000. If Nissan sticks to this price range the Z should be a better deal than the Toyota Supra.


The Z35 will continue to use the latest version of Nissan's FM platform that's shared with the previous 370Z. It will also share a lot of components with the Infiniti Q60 coupe.


One of the things that the new Z will share with the Q60 is its engine. The Z will be powered the same 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 VR30DDTT engine and and will reportedly make a whopping 400 horsepower.

For transmission there will be two options for customers to choose with the twin-turbo V6. A 6-speed manual transmission will be standard on the Z (likely continuing over from the 370Z) while there will be an optional 9G-Tronic (9-speed) automatic transmission that will be reportedly supplied from Mercedes-Benz.

Z Prototypes have been spotted in spy photos with both the manual and automatic transmissions.



With the new Z there will be a much needed update to the interior. To put into perspective how dated the 370Z's interior was, the Z35 will be the first Z car that will come with a center touchscreen.

But that won't be the only digital aspect of the car. The new Z will also be getting a fully digital instrument cluster that we hope will be configurable to suit the driver's needs.

Leaked photos suggest there could be some fun interior color options to choose from, such as a vibrant blue that's brings back memories of the original 240Z.
