Is this a thing, or just another render full of hopes and dreams?

I'm still trying to find my next purchase, I'm holding off for another year though because there's "apparently" a few new cars close to release.

True, I've almost grabbed one a few times over the years, BUT, the convertible versions, roof up or down, are as ugly as 10 ugly things.

and after this pandemic Nissan might just be forced into bankruptcy, never mind launching a new sports car.

The prediction even before all this started was bankruptcy by 2022 so the forecast is grim for them.
The car "news" sites are scrambling for content so articles such as this need to be taken with a massive block of salt.
I haven't looked but I bet if you dig back a couple of months C&D were writing about Nissans impending doom and now they say a new car is coming out?

As much as I'd love to see a new 400Z, in the new coronavirus economy, it's hard to see how Nissan would be able to afford the expense of developing a niche car that would have negligible impact on sales. The company has been in progressively worsening financial trouble for years. They have had to implement desperate measures such as eliminating employee travel. When a company is down to scratching for nickels and dimes, I can't imagine they're going to have the money for a new small-volume sports car. The very survival of the company is in question, and they have to focus their limited resources on maximizing revenues and profits on potential big sellers. As much as enthusiasts would love a 400Z, that won't do it.

It's a shame. The Z is an iconic sports car with a storied reputation and history. I looked seriously at the 370Z vs the BRZ, and came very close to buying one. People diss it for being 'old', but it's like buying a brand-new 15 year old sports car - very analog feeling, visceral, great power, and just plain fun. The downsides are terrible visibility and almost no cargo space at all (it's a hatchback, but the space is barely 6 inches deep). Plus most of the Nissan dealers I visited were complete sleaze, which was the final turn off.

And those god awful, over sized, poorly place, ugly as hell door handles!
I also cross shopped them and every time I walked up to one I shuddered at those door handles. Petty complaint yes but still a deal breaker for me.
