Japanese word used to describe the 1st model of a particular generation of vehicle. As opposed to the 2nd model/version which is called Kouki.
I don't like the zenki FC RX-7s tail lights as much as the kouki's.

The first generation of an automobile. Typically reserved for reference to Japanese manufacturers.

In cars, "Zenki" means "First period", and Kouki means "Late period".

Its English equivalent could be "Pre-Facelift" for Zenki, and "Post-Facelift" for Kouki.

((Facelift means that it is an aesthetic redesign or even a mechanical improvement, but without altering the chassis to the point of meriting an adequate generational change.)
I like the Kouki Gen 4 Mustang, but the body looks too sharp, so I prefer the rounder Zenki model.
