For more than a decade, we are hearing rumors about the comeback of the legendary nameplate, but this time, 2019 Nissan Silvia seems for real. According to the latest reports, the famous nameplate is coming back and it will be the new entry-level sports car from this manufacturer.
The legendary model was in production for decades. However, the company ended with it more than 15 years ago. The last version of the famous sports coupe was produced between 1999 and 2002. Since then, we are eagerly waiting for every news or rumor about a possible revival. This time, it sounds more realistic than ever. The company prepares a new version of the famous Z Car. We expect to see its new relative to come at the same time. It is still early to speculate about a more precise date, but 2019 Silvia could come already in the next year.
2019 Nissan Silvia revival
Stories about the revival of this legend are becoming more and more intense in these days. All car lovers are excited to see the new version of the legendary but never forgotten model that has been produced for decades. At the moment, there is a lack of more precise details. For now, we know that the company is preparing the new generation of the iconic Z Car, which should come with the completely new V6 engine, as 400Z.
On the other side, it looks like the new 2019 Nissan Silvia will be cheaper and with a smaller engine. A real entry-level sports car. We can also hear opposite reports, which suggest that the legendary nameplate could be used for the very same new Z Car, for specific markets. Still, this kind of story doesn’t seem so likely to us and we are pretty sure that the 2019 Nissan Silvia will come as an independent model.
2019 Nissan Silvia styling
Of course, one of the most interesting things about the new 2019 Nissan Silvia is its styling. We are expecting to see a completely new look. Considering that the previous version was produced between 1999 and 2002, there won’t be many things in common between the new and old model. Still, the new model is expected to stick to the same design philosophy, which means a two-door sports coupe. We expect to see a very sleek profile, as well as the application of Nissan’s new design language.Expect to see a new V-Motion grille, but also several styling elements borrowed from GT-R and Z models.
On the inside, we expect to see a completely new cabin, different compared to what we can find in the Nissan’s current lineup. Still, it is still early to say something more precise.
2019 Nissan Silvia engines
Another very interesting aspect of the 2019 Nissan Silvia is the engine. We all know that the new version of the famous Z model is about to get a completely new V6 engine with more than 400 horsepower. On the other side, this car should feature a four-cylinder engine, like it was the case with previous generations.
Most likely, it will be a new 2.0-liter unit, which should be tuned somewhere around 250 horses. Also, there is a chance to see some of the Nissan’s V6 units offered as an optional engine. In any case, this car won’t lack in power and overall performances.
2019 Nissan Silvia release date and price
The 2019 Nissan Silvia is still waiting for the official confirmation. Until then, we must rely on speculations. According to the most optimistic reports, the new model will come in the next year. When it comes to the price, we expect the new model to cost around 30.000 dollars in its base variant.
