It's a code red at Nissan. Pictures of an alleged new Nissan Z car have been leaked ahead of the model's official unveiling. Instagram user "Brandon" (@laidout4dc) published four photos of what looks like the upcoming Nissan 400Z on his Instagram feed.

The photos show front, back, and side views of the car. It looks nearly identical to the Z Proto Nissan showed off last September, giving the photos validity.

At the front, the photos show a car that has a definitive eye toward its 350Z heritage. A The modern touches of eye-like LED headlights and unique grille mesh are carried over from the prototype into this model. Right up front on its hood is the new Nissan logo, covered by a protective film commonly used in the auto industry.

The rear gives off all sorts of modern and retro vibes. There's a wing on this Z that there wasn't on the Z Proto. It's kept the dual exhaust and Tron-inspired taillights from the September model.

Nissan has put the fuel filler door on the rear passenger side of the coupe and given it door handles that look more passable than the ones on the Z Proto. It rides on 10-spoke black wheels wrapped in performance tires.

The car is shown with a two-tone paint scheme, something that's also carried over from the prototype. This model appears to have the bulk painted a silver/gunmetal color rather than the striking lemon-lime of the model. "Z" badging is seen on the car at the end of the window glass on the passenger side back haunch.

Interior shots of the car show a model that has nearly identical styling to the Z Proto's. There is an automatic transmission rather than the six-speed gearbox that the Z Proto was originally shown with, as well as USB ports and switchgear for what could be heated seats.

The all-digital instrument panel is similar to the one found in the new Pathfinder while the wheel is unique and features a "Z" logo at its center. A traction control button appears to be located to the left of the steering wheel, on the dashboard.

Is this for sure the real thing? The new Nissan Z is set to be officially unveiled later this year. We'll find out more then. In the meantime, you can listen to the roar from its tailpipe.

The new Nissan Z is finally here, and the 400-horsepower sports car is hitting the market with a reasonable price. The car starts at just $39,990 before a $1,025 destination charge. That's significantly cheaper than the least expensive Toyota Supra for a car with impressive specs and great style.

The 2023 Z comes with a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 that makes 400 horsepower. It's paired with either a six-speed manual or nine-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. That's the enthusiast's dream setup, and it's one of few cars available in the U.S. with a manual gearbox. The body is stiffer and features more reinforcements from prior cars, and the steering system now features electric assistance instead of hydraulics. 18-inch wheels are standard and 19-inchers are available.

When it announced the car, Nissan made a point to talk about its retro-inspired styling and classic proportions. The coupe features a sweeping roofline, a distinct front fascia, and is unmistakeably a Z car, through and through. Inside, the car features a three anlog gauges for a classic look, 12.3-inch configurable digital gauge cluster and a 9-inch touchscreen display. The cabin looks upscale and tech-forward, with deep bucket seats.

The gas-powered full-size truck market is as strong as ever, even as new electric trucks start hitting the road. Toyota just released an all-new Tundra, the Ford F-150 offers an innovative hybrid powertrain, and GM recently overhauled the tech in its full-size pickup twins. Though it's not quite on the level of its competition, the Nissan Titan offers decent capability and a standard V8. Pricing for the Titan line starts just shy of $40,000.

The base Titan S adds a standard trailer hitch and Berliner, the SV trim gets navigation, dual-zone climate controls, and more. All trims get Nissan Safety Shield 360, which includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, automatic high beams, lane departure warnings, blind spot warnings, rear cross-traffic alerts, and rear automatic braking.

A single powertrain is on offer for the 2022 Titan, but it's a good one. The truck comes standard with a 5.6-liter V8 that makes 400 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. It's paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission and either rear- or four-wheel drive. That powertrain enables a max towing rating of 9,660 pounds, which is not as strong as the Titan's rivals, but should be plenty for the average truck owner.
