At long last the Nissan Z Sports Model was announced yesterday in the New York US. Please take a read I think I have posted enough facts to keep you all quite - Enjoy Dave 👍😉

“The Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. premiered the U.S.-market version of the all-new Nissan Z sports car at a special event in New York. The all-new, seventh-generation Z, representing more than 50 years of ongoing passion and dedication towards driving excitement, is scheduled to go on sale at Nissan dealers in the U.S. in spring 2022. At the center of the Z’s success are the fans, representing 1.8 million Zs sold, making it a global top-selling sports car. As an approachable sports car for the modern age, the all-new Z offers attractive styling, advanced technology and the thrill of exploring the open road to past and future generations of Z drivers and fans.”

I would really love a similar 'Sporty' digital dashboard display layout for the new Nissan QQ too ... looks awesome !
Having a bit more color options for it would already be great.

QaiFan, do you mean these options ? - Dave 😊

“The all-new Z is available in three monotone exterior colors and six two-tone exterior colors including two new colors, Seiran Blue and Ikazuchi Yellow – both with a Super Black roof.”

The external colors on the new Z as well as QQ are fine as they are.
It's the 12.3 digital dashboards (and possibly 8/9 inch infotainment display) that I would love to be more customizable regarding colors and layouts.
It's personal ... since I have a magnetic blue / black roof QQ on order I would love the dashboard to reflect those colors :-)
Bit too much to ask of course.
BTW I chose the new QQ Tekna+ in magnetic blue just because the interior leather look has those blueish tints to it (FWIW I would not like red as an external color just because of that blue interior color that we can not change/select).

Hopefully interesting some Design Comments On the Nissan Z - Dave 😊

Here are some discussions questions and answers on the design story of the all-new Nissan Z with exterior designer Naoyuki Ohkoshi and interior designer Takuya Yamashita.
“Ohkoshi joined the Nissan design team in 1997. Notable past projects in his portfolio include the 2009 INFINITI QX60 and the 2012 QX80, as well as projects with Daimler and supplier Magna. Yamashita is a newer member of the Nissan global design team, coming on board just four years ago. He’s already raising eyebrows and exceeding expectations with his interior design touches.”

I surely would prefer this Z over any QQ :D, but I also wonder how many of the Z Nissan can sell to customers in the UK and Europe. Very nice sportscar indeed, but won't those customers (that are prepared to pay dearly for such an 'ECO killer' ) not always prefer Ferrari or Porsche...because of prestige ? In the US these Z cars are cheap, yet over here?
