    Nissan executive vice president Andy Palmer let loose some information concerning the next-generation Z. Speaking with Auto Express at the Frankfurt Motor Show last week, Palmer revealed that the company will reveal a concept at the Toyko Motor Show in November that gives some hints of what to expect with the next Z.

    “Do I know what it looks like? Yes I do. Have I driven it? Yes I have. When will you see it? Come to Tokyo,” said Palmer.

    Palmer says the next Z will be lighter and smaller than the 370Z. Also, the next Z will feature a smaller powerplant and possibly be turbocharged. Palmer also stressed that electric power is being looked at as well.

    I have no problem with hybrid or electric powerplants as that is the future to deliver performance and better mileage, but shrinking a car down and still calling it a Z is just wrong. Going smaller and trying to say it is the same as the outgoing model is not the right marketing thing to do and I think this will backfire in their face.

    Yeah I agree. Like they say, bigger is better. People don't want to be caught up in a teeny tiny vehicle. So from a marketing standpoint, going smaller might hurt them in the long run.
