  1. Nissan Z roadster coming? What about a T-Top, Targa Top, or Shooting Brake?

    They make a targa top an option for the new Z and my rating goes from "probably buying" to "definitely placing a dealer order".
  2. What car do you think is the MAIN competitor to the new Z?

    Neither the average household nor the average individual is buying this car regardless of its price. Attainability is a relative term. I once heard the Global VP of Product Planning for Nissan North America call the GT-R an "attainable" supercar. In the case of these guys, "attainable" is...
  3. Infotainment Camera Button?

    Nissan was first to market in the US with AVM in the 2010 Rogue IIRC. I have it in my Titan, and I don't think I'd be comfortable with driving a truck this big without it. I never wanted for it in my 370Z, but if it's an option I'll happily take it. It's a wonderful feature.

    I agree with you on the general public sentiment. However, like the Z, the cult following of the muscle cars of yesteryear is Dodge's core buyer base that they must satisfy first, and they're successful there, and they're successful without the additional buyers they get from the cheaper and...

    Also guys - look straight at the engine configuration in the Infiniti cars. This new Z is a parts bin car from Nissan. They can (and probably should) offer the car in two configurations - one 300hp twin turbo V6 (Infiniti Silver Sport) and one 400+ (Infiniti Red Sport). There's not going to...

    I can guarantee you the transmission is the bottleneck there - it's definitely a conservative configuration from Nissan. Too many people are running 500+ whp with bolt ons, cooling upgrades, and a tune against those motors. Many are doing so quite reliably... not that there aren't some who are...

    EDIT: I was wrong. 14.7 PSI is OEM max boost for Red Sport models. 8.7 PSI for 300hp versions. It's possible, if that image actually means anything, that we'll see 300hp and 400+ versions of the car to keep it within a palatable price range. I predicted this months ago btw :)
  8. Anyone Else Think New Z is Going to Pull A C8?

    Where is here? I thought I was in the market for a used GT-R but I can't find anything I'd buy that's less than $85k. My local Audi dealer just recently had a 2012 with 14k on the clock for a whopping $82k. It was stock!
  9. Anyone Else Think New Z is Going to Pull A C8?

    That dealer is full of shit on the "flood the market" comment. They have zero control over how many Zs Nissan can produce in light of being cash-strapped and dealing with several supply chain issues as many have already mentioned in this thread. If Nissan is smart, they know they cannot allow...
  10. 2022 Nissan Z Details: MSRP pricing, packages, power (hp), weight, transmission + more

    At this price point, an extra $1,000 off something at this price point is not enough to make me go buy something I'm not 100% sure I want. I would advise patience here. It's mostly a horrible time to buy a car. The used market is so wildly inflated that if you're not coming up with serious...

    I imagine that, without a doubt, you'll get the Z Proto there, unless they take one of those silver cars that have been spied state side and debut them.
  12. 2022 Nissan Z Details: MSRP pricing, packages, power (hp), weight, transmission + more

    So the 2020+ Titans and Frontiers use the Jatco 9 (GE9R01A), and they do use a centrifugal pendulum absorber but do not use a shift cable while having physical levers to control shifting (the Titan has a column shifter, but it's connected to an electrical sensor - no shift cable). Shift...
  13. What car do you think is the MAIN competitor to the new Z?

    I said all that up there before I realized the 718 had gotten all the way to $60k entry price. So maybe not the Cayman. But my point still stands.
  14. What car do you think is the MAIN competitor to the new Z?

    I feel this take oversimplifies what the Z is supposed to be in the greater sports car market. Just because a product ticks a sporty box in a similar price range doesn't mean Nissan is intending to target that product as its competition. Is it smart to consider that product as a potential...
