The end is nigh as a new report is indicating Nissan's next-generation Z will be a crossover instead of a sports car.

While the company has been considering a number of different directions for the next-generation Z, Autocar is reporting an insider has confirmed the model will be a crossover and it will be previewed by a new concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

If the rumors are to be believed, the next-generation Z will be based on the CMF platform and will be roughly the same size as the Juke.  The model is also expected to have sporty styling and a range of turbocharged 1.6-liter engines.
