The info suggests that the 2-door sports car would be lower in height compared to the Nissan GT-R. The Japanese media has provided a rendering of what the flagship sports car will look like and it does resemble a little bit of the Toyota GR Supra at the front mixed with the C8 Corvette at the rear.

In terms of powertrains, the Nissan flagship could be powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-litre V6 engine that produces 400 PS and placed in the middle. This is the same engine that is rumoured to be in the production version of the next-gen Z.

If all goes according to plan, the sports car will be launched in 2024.
