    Nismo Z prototype spied testing in the U.S.

    Unless this is an entirely misleading mule, it sure looks something like that rendering. I'm here for it, I'm sure it will look fine (as opposed to virtually every version of a hypothetical bisected-grille I have seen).

    Nismo Z prototype spied testing in the U.S.

    Seems pretty plausible 👍

    Nissan Z vs Toyota Supra

    Exactly! Those crazy...wealthy folks 😂

    Nissan Z vs Toyota Supra

    That's the best way to put it - the A90 has such exaggerated lines that yellow seems to naturally suit it well. I'd like to see the Z in an orange, that might work well...

    Nissan Z vs Toyota Supra

    That seems to be at least an exaggeration - from what I'm seeing, the average age of a Corvette buyer during the middle C7 era was 59. It's hard to locate reliable data on specific models, I'm finding. In any case, I... don't regard 50s as especially "young" 😂 Will a New Corvette Appeal to...

    Nissan Z vs Toyota Supra

    That's possible, but I'd argue that there are different audiences, too. Despite the C8 seeing lower-aged buyers relative to previous Corvette generations, it's still often viewed as a "Boomer car," at least from a popular culture perspective. Now, that may change or even be changing, with more...

    Nissan Z vs Toyota Supra

    I'm feeling the pull in that direction, too, man! I have found myself looking around southern FL (300-mile radius from Naples, basically) to see if a CPO 2021/22 3.0 Supra in yellow (the only color I'm currently considering). If one showed up, and the details looked good to me, I'd have such a...

    2023 Nissan Z are finally starting to roll into dealerships

    Yeah, it's incredibly hot-and-cold for me. Extremely dependent on lighting, so that's no good. Seeing as we'll all be waiting for months, years, or possibly until the end of time before getting a Z (assuming we're still interested by then) maybe they'll eventually offer more interesting colors 🤷🏽‍♂️

    Nismo Z prototype spied testing in the U.S.

    Looks like they're predictably going with a mesh-like grille insert, which is nice. Someone thought they could make out fender vents and the above-mentioned hood vents have been suggested but I'm not seeing the fender detail clearly and I don't think the lighter colored vehicle has the same hood...

    Spent weekend with the new Z (Sport AT) -- my impressions / review

    Yeah, a lot of that switchgear carries over from the 370, from what I can tell, so it does feel a bit low effort in that regard. Unsurprising that it has a dated feel to it, even if the design is significantly more modern and appealing. I can understand that conflict in the execution.

    Nismo Z prototype spied testing in the U.S.

    It's all just so far out-of-bounds, it's really embarrassing. Like, here's you, presumably legitimately looking to buy a car and the protocol is, what, to disregard anyone who is looking for something approaching on a reasonable price?

    Nismo Z prototype spied testing in the U.S.

    This is only half-hyperbolic. I'm down here looking at $90,000 Protos being offered with absolutely zero shame. To be clear, there should be much shame.

    Nismo Z prototype spied testing in the U.S.

    Yep, that 3-piece spoiler reminds me a little bit of the Fairlady Custom concept in terms of its width, but this appears to have a more tapered look, which is nice.

    2023 Nissan Z is Softer than the Supra, and Better For It (POV Drive Review by MilesPerHr)

    Facts. I imagine that I will see one on the streets at some point soon, just based upon my specific geographical location, but this car is going to be bigfoot-level elusive for quite a while, I fear.

    2023 Nissan Z Gets New Engine Tuning Package By Nismo In Japan

    Very curious about this... Factory optional tunes can work really well (GM does this pretty successfully) since the updates are generally in line with the vehicles' core dynamics so they don't require many additional upgrades to be out-of-the-box functional. I'd do it.

    Nissan doing Nissan shite 🤣

    For the love of (preferred deity)!

    I'm torn on the Supra's design, also. I see them all over Naples (I'd argue they're roughly as common as a 370) and, at a distance, they have incredible presence on the road. You not only recognize from afar that it's a pretty serious machine, you can readily identify it's a Supra soon after...

    Pics & Vids of Nissan Z with aftermarket wheels

    That's what I thought! Looking at the lower image, though, I'm thinking that they are just a true satin finish and don't hold the light very well. Slick design, however.

    For the love of (preferred deity)!

    They surely did. Assuming that Nissan also took steps to ensure that dealers couldn't hamstring the rollout with ADM, I totally agree. Like a $37K Sport and a $46k Performance, even (do change the silly names, though, Nissan). If Nissan threatened to withhold deliveries (of various models) to...
