you know...some people complain about the front overhang on cars...mainly FWD (Subaru and Lexus cars tend to have long ones).

But holy crap i never realized the porsche has such a long front overhang, and the Lotus as well.

Perhaps this is a function of being Mid/Rear Engine?

Dingdinding!

If there’s virtually no weight in the overhang (no engine), you may have to make it longer to get more weight over the front tires. Similar to how the Supra has a pretty long rear overhang. It’s probably worth the aero benefits too at that point.

Why are they trying to tease us? That could literally be the concept. Is there any obvious differences? I’ll laugh if the released car rolls out in highlighter yellow looking virtually identical to the Proto.

there is no Fairlady Z badge on the back. either way the proto is pretty much the production car minus small details like badges, side markers, sensors etc.
