Speaking to Automotive News, Philippe Klein, Nissan’s head of planning, said rumors that the Japanese automaker planned to cancel its entry-level sports car were false. But when asked about the next-generation Z, he didn’t have more encouraging news to share. “We’re working on it and it’s very present, but I have no indication to give you,” said Klein.

Does it mean " available or ready " here?

It's bollocks.

'Present' means 'here, now - except he is clearly trying to hide the fact that it isn't here, now, because if that were true you would have a car to show!

It means 'it is foremost in our thoughts, we are working on it. - we will have something for you soon.'


It also means the design team who are late with this project will get such a spanking. Shame on you
