    Default 240Z Design Development Process - Exterior

    I found this interesting video that shows someof the many designs that preceeded the 240Z





    Are there similar videos for the design of the chassis and engine?

    Instead of video, is there any documentation of the chassis, engine, and interior at all?

    There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply.
    The person who buys on price alone is this man's lawful prey.

    Thanks, but that Moto Man show was dumb. There was no real history, but a few good bits, like when Matsuo-san explained why they decided to use the hatchback design.

    Good video. Maybe a bit off topic, id love to see more documentation on the jdm fairlady z, like the development of the 432, g nose etc, changes to the s31, etc. I suppose thats not too far off topic though since the car was developed in japan, so it all relates to the overall production run of the generation. Would be good. I wonder why nissan never made anything like that.

    Ive seen a few japanase books/magazines on ebay. I got an issue of Nostalgic Hero that has alot of Z stuff in it. but sadly I do not read Japanese. Im sure there is more detailed info in japanese print, just no one has translated or posted on the internet.
