    The All-New 2022 Subaru WRX (Teased)

    Even though the rear looks like a newer Civic/BRZ. I like the rear more than the front. I do like the body lines overall. Hope they put a new engine on the STi version because that thing has been carried over for several generations.

    Japanese Nostalgic Car - What we learned from seeing the production 2023 Nissan Z in person

    I think they meant more in terms of a reminder of the driving spirit, feel, and experience + what the Z32 was for its time and how its a classic today. If the new Z follows that recipe it will be a success.

    What cars do you currently own?

    Yes indeed. Have had mine for 5 years now. What front bumper are you running? I'm hesitant in getting one like it in the future due to weight. I may go with a tube-style bumper. Currently averaging 13.5 mpg with a 2 inch lift and 33" tires 😬

    A Legend Returns: New Acura Integra Coming for a New Generation

    If the powertrain and drivetrain come from the civic type R, I can see them making the Integra the coupe Type R version and leaving the civic type R as the sedan version. Either way, excited to see what comes out of this project.

    BMW recalls Supra (again)... Why didn't you by the Supra instead of the Z?

    ^ I've spotted a few A90s + 1 at some meets now, and some people will check them out and move on as if it was a car that has been out for years. It doesn't have the hype the MKIV has or what many thought this car would be. Similar to the last gen NSX vs the current one. Really hoping the new Z...

    2022 BMW 2-Series Coupe G42 Leaked! + M2

    I like it minus the taillights. So would this project now be considered the fraternal triplets 🤔 ??? (Z4, Supra, 2 series coupe)

    MotoManTV Interview with Alfonso Albaisa, Nissan Z designer

    Great interview! One thing I got from it is that Toyota may not only have to worry about the sales for the Supra but possibly the new 86/Subaru BRZ if the price starts south of $40k getting into the $3X,XXX.00. One could look at it as a true BRZ "STi" that everyone has asked for if you will...

    Is $40k a good price for a 400hp Z?

    The used car market prices are going insane at this time. I feel as if Nissan has to play it smart with the price if they want to make a good amount of sales. The last Z model you could get was priced starting at $31k -/+ and the Nismo $45k -/+. This is competing with the Supra and sure Toyota...

    NISMO Z Configuration Poll - What Specs Would You Like to See?

    450-500 HP RWD manual sounds good. I was thinking AWD for a moment but that's more in line of the Skyline/GTR family and not the Z. A more aggressive diffuser + front bumper, some wider fenders to make it look more aggressive, maybe an air vent or 2 would be cool. BUT make them functional, don't...

    Join Us For Nissan Z Livestream Reveal Viewing Party! + Reactions [Live Link Up]

    I thought having Cody Walker as a guest speaker was pretty cool. He comes from a car enthusiast family. I'm sure if Paul was still here, he would've been the guest speaker. Nissan also had Eddie George and Tim Tebow (both former Heisman Trophy winners + former NFL players) participate in the...

    Nissan COO leaks 2022 Nissan Z specs ( V6 twin turbo, 400hp) and $40k base price?!

    Mr. COO - Z fans also wanted a $35k base price tag, can we get that too??? Please show this thing in a different color tonight or multiple. That proto Z color was hard to appreciate on my tv.

    Q&A with Nissan US Product Comms & Executive Guests - Submit your questions for post-reveal discussion!

    I agree. But if this is more of QA session "after hours" and not an official press release, why not? This is what my local Toyota dealership said the upcoming Z would be (cuz they're in the position to make such statements lol). So I'm sure many competitors/people may say the same. Just an idea...

    Q&A with Nissan US Product Comms & Executive Guests - Submit your questions for post-reveal discussion!

    What response does Nissan have for all those saying this new Z is just a reskinned 370Z? (I'm sure most details about the new car will answer that during the debut) But curious to hear what an official response to this comment would be.

    BMW recalls Supra (again)... Why didn't you by the Supra instead of the Z?

    True, by German/BMW standards it is on the lower price end. BMW got the Win out of this partnership. They got 2 entire cars out of this project (Z4 / 2 series coupe) including an upcoming M2. Plus, they got to choose what internal parts Toyota could use on their car.

    BMW recalls Supra (again)... Why didn't you by the Supra instead of the Z?

    The car's original design was meant to be built on a Lexus LC500 platform or something similar. Instead, they squished the design into a Z4 chassis, built it with all BMW parts, did not offer a manual, and IMO priced it too high for what you get = an expensive BMW with issues and recalls. The...

    Nissan USA latest Z teaser - 08.17.21

    ^ I agree. So long as they don't spend crazy money on marketing like Toyota did with the "A90", I prefer Nissan spend those dollars on the quality/performance of the vehicle. Although I'm hoping the production model shown is different from the proto color we've seen. That teaser is worrisome.

    Nissan Z Production Colors Simulation Renderings

    Nice Job! So much better looking than the yellow they decided to reveal the car with. I feel like the white or grey would've shown more of the body lines/design that was hard to see with the yellow during the live stream.
