TOKYO -- Nissan Motor on Wednesday unveiled a prototype of its latest Z sports car, which it hopes will help restore its luster as the Japanese carmaker tries to bounce back from big losses in recent years.

"Z represents Nissan's spirit itself, and is a very important model for Nissan Next," said CEO Makoto Uchida, referring to the company's midterm business plan through March 2024. "We will do everything from A to Z," vowed Uchida, clad in a T-shirt and sport coat for the online event.
