    Arrow Nissan 400ZX

    like in the old days, nissan will build multiple 'z' cars that vary in size and performance. this places above the 350Z in price and performance, it's built on the same platform that the vette and xlr ride on. starting at $37.5K, it comes standard with a turbo'd version of the 350Z's 300hp engine. a convertible and targa version will be offered as well.
    here it is, it's not quite finished, and i'm wide open to all suggestions:


    comments appreciated, they will most likely go into the design of the final product

    pretty cool, but it looks too much like one of those POS Bricklins, and not enough like a 350Z

    *edit*
    don't worry about the wheels and side being vette still, but please give me some suggestions on what i should do with the side.
    Like it, remindes me of the 280Z.

    well, without the merger, nissan wouldn't get the platform, and the car couldn't be built.

    Re: Nissan 400ZX

    I see the AMX in it as RunningShoes said.
    The front center grill looks too much like a Ferrari grill, I suggest changing that to something more GM/Nissan/Renault in looks/style.
    Maybe a short deck in the rear would be a good look?
    Also, change the headlights. They look like they don't fit this design.
    Maybe also post the car in other colors. Another color may be more flattering or do it better justice.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the improvements on updates.
    Keep up the good work.
    IF It's A Chevrolet & RWD, Don't ride in it!!!

    ALL Chevy's NEED to be FWD/F-AWD!!!

    If it's a Toyota/Lexus/Scion, Don't ride in/drive it!!

    really? i like both, but i think the grilled one fits in with the lineup designwise a bit more.
