It was assumed that the 370Z sports car was headed for retirement, and without a replacement. But the Sleuth’s trusty sources are hearing that a new 400Z is in the works for the 2020 model year. That name seems appropriate since the car will run with a 400-horsepower twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 culled from Nissan’s Infiniti division. The 400Z will also use a modified platform that was developed for the Infiniti Q60 coupe. Rumor has it that the new Z will break cover at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show toward the end of the year, and will be available for public consumption in early 2020.
