I wish it looked better. I think this one is too retro.

And how is it being unimaginative? Its just bringing back old classsics which were amazing, and very popular. Japan would be bringing back cars if they had any. But they dont.

If they build this car exactly the way its depicted, it will be an instant cult classic. I'd seriously consider one

Nice. Very nice but I don't know, something off with the pictures. Are we sure about the authenticity?

And 280, and...

I just meant the styling. Nissan aimed to directly emulate the 240Z with the 350 when they were designing it.

Or out of ideas.

It's sad to see that the big three is out of new stuff for the public...although, the public likes what they are putting out, otherwise it would not have made it from the concept stages.

Japan and Europe are bringing back cars from the past but they are putting their own new twist on them (i.e 350Z and even the 645 if I'm not mistaken).
