He did reiterate that like all past Z cars, this latest one will once again be offered at a “buyable price.” Judging by the Z Proto itself inside and out, it’s pretty clear Nissan has no intention of changing much. For example, concept vehicles typically feature ultra-narrow and sleek side mirrors that don’t meet federal regulations for a number of reasons. The Z Proto’s side mirrors, however, are big enough to meet all necessary standards.
There could be a few additional tweaks to areas such as the side skirts and front grille design, again due to safety regulations, but everything else will remain the same. It’s also important to note the Z Proto is widely believed to be based on an updated version of the platform underpinning the outgoing Nissan 370Z.
