Looks like Nissan is in fact using the TTV6 in the next Z if this article has any accuracy. If true this is a great move on Nissan's part and a direct shot at the MKV especially if they offer a manual option.

Twin-Turbo V-6 Power
The most powerful engine currently in Nissan and Infiniti's mainstream lineup (apart from the GT-R) is the twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 that makes up to 400 horsepower in the Infiniti Q50 and Q60. This is the logical choice for the new Z, then, and sources within Nissan dealerships told Autoblog that this powerful mill will indeed be under the hood. A seven-speed automatic is the only transmission choice for this engine in the Infinitis, but we're hoping and praying that a stick shift will be offered as well; remember, Nissan did hint that this was possible by bolting up a six-speed manual to this engine for its modified 370Z concept for the SEMA tuner show this past year.

This engine's displacement calls into question what the new Z will be called. 300Z would be rational (or 300ZX, for nostalgia's sake), but we'd guess that Nissan will instead choose a number corresponding to the car's output rather than its displacement, like 400Z, to clarify its superiority over its predecessors.

So far I'm liking everything I read except one thing, the retro 240Z looks. As nice as that car was in it's day, they kind of already copied its shape for the 350Z and 370Z. I'd like to see something a little different, fresher if possible. Maybe some additional homage to the beloved Z32 ZX (other than just tail lights). Anyway, still feeling optimistic about this car. Come on Nissan......I hope you succeed where Toyota failed us.

I was hoping for the VRH35Z.
