Like Porsche's 911 Club Coupe, Nissan didn't choose to launch the new in the hustle and bustle of a major auto show but amongst a crowd that truly admires the Z in particular. This coming year's model was shown for the first time at the 18th International Z Car Convention in Syracuse, New York, which took place in mid August.
Speaking of the occasion, Mark McNabb, VP and General Manager of Nissan

Highlights from the event, which took place on the 15th to 19th of August, included a track day at the historic Watkins Glen road course, an autocross competition, drifting demonstration, charitable auction, car show, and an appearance by Yutaka Katayama, also known as Mr. K, or Mr. Z for his involvement in the Z-project.
