Inside Brainiac: Nissan 350Z Heads-Up Display

It seems like Matthew never sleeps because he’s done it again!  A new set of renderings of the Nissan 350Z dashboard.  We’ve been considering applying a little bit of a modern redesign to the top three gauge cup area of the dashboard.  I know that making some changes to an iconic area of the Z dashboard can be a little sacrilegious but we figured we would give it a try any ways 🙂

Having three gauges is great, but what if you could have a heads-up display that could show multiple gauges, turn-by-turn directions, incoming alerts and more?  We think that this is an area worth exploring.  Our thoughts are not to add a secondary “touch screen”, but instead an LCD that is pushed back as close to the windshield as possible.  Creating a great area for information at a glance but low enough not to block your field of vision.  

Matthew has come up with a few options for us to look at and gather feedback from the Z community on the possibility of a secondary display.  I personally love revision 2.1 which is a really sleek design that would really give a nice modern touch to the Z’s interior.
