Nissan Z: A Sports Car Legend

The Nissan Z is the current record holder for best selling sports car series of all time, selling over two million units throughout its history. Celebrating over 40 years in production, the Z has seen a few model changes and facelifts along the way.

The original Nissan Z was first offered for sale in October 1969 with one version for the Japanese market and the other to cater to the US market. The newest Nissan Z is the 370Z and it has been manufactured by Nissan since 2009. Throughout the years, the Nissan Z has been recognized for its looks, reliability, and performance.

A powerful engine and nimble handling make the 2012 Nissan 370Z a top pick among sports car enthusiasts.  It is able to go from 0-60 miles per hour in just 5.1 seconds. Comfort and convenience features on the 370Z include HID headlights, keyless start, trip computer, leather wrapped steering wheel with mounted controls, heated mirrors, climate control, variable speed intermittent wipers, and an optional back-up camera. An auxiliary audio input, MP3 player, and CD player provide entertainment during every trip.

Nissan Gains Inspiration from Blue Angels

A squadron of Blue Angels recently inspired Nissan designers and product planners at the United States Navy Blue Angels Flight Demonstration Squadron training facility in Pensacola, Florida. The Nissan team was present to observe the Blue Angels in action, and talk to the pilots and ground crew about the force and speed that the Blue Angels control with each flight. Nissan personnel were interested in applying that speed and power to new Nissan concepts, and received inspiration and advice from the Blue Angels crew.

Jared Haslam, Senior Manager, Product Planning of Nissan Americas said, “We’re always looking for inspiration beyond the auto industry in the design and development of our performance vehicles, and the Blue Angels have set the standard for high-speed excellence throughout their 66-year history. It was beneficial not only to study the designs of the ‘Angels’ F-18s up close but to get an understanding of how pilots and service personnel interact with their jets,”

Inspired Nissan designers were alight with new concepts and innovations that could be applied to new Nissan products. These ideas garnered at the training facility will likely filter into future Nissan concepts that will be available to customers.

Haslam added, “We are thankful to the U.S. Navy and the Blue Angels for their overall service to the nation and for the professionalism, hospitality and inspiration given to the Nissan team on our recent visit.”
