    Default Phantom Z designed by Mr. Matsuo Will be reveiled at Z Con 2014!

    2014 ZCON: Z fans, a BIG surprise will be revealed on Aug 7th!Mid 1960s’, before the first generation Fairlady Z, known as Datsun 240Z in US, came out, Mr. Matsuo and his design team already had concept cars for next the generation of Fairl...ady, known as Datsun Roadster in US. Mr. Katayama, president of Nissan USA at the time, gave “go sign” for the production of the Z cars when he first met Mr. Matsuo at Nissan Design center in Yokohama. As designing progressed toward production, design team came up with variation of this special sport car: GT Racing version, Targa top, Convertible, Coupe with notch back, 2+2, and station wagon. However, only 2+2 version became production car 5 years later.

    48 years later, Mr. Matsuo helped Jay Ataka to bring this special Z to reality. This car is about passion, history, and pursuing a beautiful automobile design. Mr. Matsuo will be at presentation of this special car at Z Con 2014 in San Diego, CA in August.
