Hooniverse Asks: What’s the next vehicle to majorly evolve?

The Corvette has shed it’s chrysalis and emerged as a mid-engined butterfly. It’s the latest vehicle to undergo a major evolutionary leap forward. But which car or truck is next to do this? Our best guess… the Nissan Z.

Maybe that should read “our best hope” because the Z needs massive attention. It’s incredibly dated, overpriced for what it offers, and falls well behind the competition. Sports cars with both more and less power are more enticing options at this point. If you were to walk into a Nissan dealer and ask about buying a new Z, the sales people would probably honestly be puzzled at this point but also assume you have no idea how to spend your money in an appropriate manner.

Do you believe the Z is the next to evolve, or will it simply twist in the wind until it’s killed off?

If not the Z, which vehicle is next to make a major leap forward? Sound off below.

    I’d wager on the Chrysler 300/Dodge Charger. As it stands, they’re aging, have no clear replacement plan, and exist in dwindling segments. Furthermore, Chrysler and Dodge have relatively scant lineups that could use a bit of padding out. The 300, especially, is a mix of fleet sales, livery use, and relatively mature customers who’d probably appreciate something that rode a little higher (while the Charger’s just a name that’s been passed around without discretion).

      Just toss the Hellcat engine into the 300 and call it the 300D. The real original General Lee moonshine car was actually Jerry Rushing’s 1958 Chrysler 300D Traveller, named after General Lee’s horse.

    Mid-engine, two-seater, pushrod V8 minivan. That was pretty much the Corvette evolution.

    Oh, wait.

    It’s a meme by now, but there is an entire brand that aims at the mass market, but shoots strangely old-fashioned bullets – PHEVs aside.

    WRX and it’s STI bro. Subaru can’t forget them, just as they can’t stick to the old formula.

    Just thought – it is the LR Defender, which will majorly evolve from being a cramped, noisy, unsafe, lego-like high-speed enclosed tractor, into a slightly boxy conventional SUV with slightly above average off-road ability.
