    I will keep my old Petroleum car. Even in the city ist is cleaner than an electric car. The reason: In Germany we produce a large amount of electric energy from coal. Therefore also the electric car can produce a lot of dirt.
    The exhaust is not connected to the car, it is somewhere else.... My next car will probably be a Subaru eBoxer because I can drive it without coal!

    I agree completely. Sometimes, I wonder if it's just me being nostalgic and modern day styles/tastes have evolved. However, I go back to the great curvy designs of the past like the Jaguar E-type, Corvette stingray, Mercedes 300SL and Ferrari Dino. Ultimately, I think I just prefer that look to modern day car styles. Though I will admit, the new Supra does check quite a few boxes for me.

    I don't think it's nostalgia, those designs are timeless beauties. I can't think of a modern design that will stand the test of time like those cars.

    Too many cars now design on/by computer and start to look the same, I suppose chassis sharing does mean some dimensions are restricted, cars like the 911(whatever variant) are pretty timeless and be recognised the world over, if you want individuality it means big money for small bespoke cars, like watches?

    Bravo Nissan! You kept it almost identical to the Proto. Well done!

    I like the rear and the overall design of the exterior. It's a little bit Aston Martin. The interior looks a bit plasticky, though - nothing to write home about.

    I’m thinking that this will be the “Last Hurrah” for automakers before eveything goes hybrid/electric. Almost a decade ago, Toyota & Subaru introduced the 86/BRZ (from the AE86 concept) to bring back the fun and excitement into driving. Honda made a global Civic Type R FK8 and is planning to resurrect the Honda Integra! Nissan has the GT-R but is out of reach for alot and so this latest (and probably last) 400Z. Mazda still has the Miata/MX-5. And BMW/Toyota Z4/Supra might be the last of its kind since BMW said they won’t do another Z4 anymore. GR Yaris is a homologation car but it might not survive ongoing automotive trends. It might be cliche to say but pure petrol cars is a dying breed. It’s pretty sad come to think of it but reality bites. Driving with a thrill & excitement has always been one of life’s greatest pleasure.
