Nissan has just dropped a teaser video that confirms the imminent arrival of the next-generation Z-car.

Expected to be called Nissan 400Z, the upcoming Z-car will supersede the ageing 370Z, which has been on sale since 2008.

The Nissan 370Z received numerous updates over its 12-year lifecycle, though the 3.7-litre VQ37VHR remained unchanged. Output figures ranges from 328 PS to 355 PS, depending on model.

As for the upcoming 400Z, power could be derived from a 3.0-litre VR30DDTT turbocharged petrol engine that does 405 PS and 475 Nm, quite a step-up from the 370Z’s output figures. The VR30DDTT also powers the Infiniti Q50 and Q60.

Apart from the powertrain, the teaser video gives us a good glimpse at the new Z-car, which appears to get an overall silhouette inspired by the iconic 240Z, including the iconic rear end.

Considering that Nissan has teased the upcoming Z-car digitally, we can expect them to tease the car in physical form in the near future.
