Nissan’s Answer to The GT86/FR-S/BRZ Will Be Coming to The Tokyo Motor Show

Nissan is going to release a rival for the Toyota GT86 and could be revealed as early as next month at the Tokyo Motor Show, according to NIssan executive vice president Any Palmer.
Their Toyota rival will be code-named Z35 and is rumored to be powered by the same engine in the 370Z - a 3.7 liter V6. The Z35 is also said to be available with an all-new 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with direct injection and turbocharging that is expected to be more powerful than the V6.
“Do we have any competitors?” Palmer replied when the publication asked him about a small sports car. “Are you talking about the Subaru? It was a car designed for a 50-year-old. It’s for a midlife crisis. That’s not what we do,” Palmer said.
“Are you coming to the Tokyo Motor Show? You’ll see the answer to the midlife crisis. Except it won’t be for the midlife crisis,” the exec said, adding that the Z35 will be aimed at male car enthusiasts in their mid-to-late twenties.

It’s fair to say that not all drivers are equal. Some of us make silly mistakes on the road and while it’s easy to disregard these issues as basic human error, they are quite dangerous. The majority of incidents on the road could have been prevented by one or more drivers. Just look at the case of the self driving car crash. An investigation found that the driver had seven seconds to intervene before the car collided with a wall. He just wasn’t paying attention and that’s only one of the most common errors that occurs on the road. Read more
