New rumours are swirling over what we can expect from the next-generation Nissan 370Z.
According to Motor Trend (hat tip to AutoGuide), Nissan's product planners are targeting the Audi TT, BMW Z4 and Porsche Boxster with the upcoming generation, code-named the Z35.
With the upcoming generation, Nissan wants to stand out from the competition with a handful of unique cosmetic features, most notably a removable roof panel in the form of either a targa or a T-bar roof.
In terms of the powertrain, a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder is expected in the base model, while a V6 pushing out 330 horsepower will be an upgrade. Most importantly, both powertrains are reported to be paired to an electric motor, sandwiched between the engine and transmission.
An official date for when we will see the next-generation Nissan 370Z debut hasn't been set.
