    Which OEM spoiler do you like best?

    The USDM Spec spoiler looks tasteful, but the JDM Proto Spec spoiler looks fantastic - aggressive AF. I get '69 Camaro SS (one of my personal favorite cars) spoiler vibes and some JDM Z32 vibes from it. I will most definitely look to source something that looks like this for an OE+ look. Oh, and...

    Expected pricing model?

    I'm betting on a $7500-10k price jump from Sport to Performance.

    Nissan Z spotted w/ Supra

    Yes, they were benchmarking with a Supra and another car (I want to say GR86, but could be wrong) from what I was told from the sender of the video.

    2023 Nissan Z Brochure Catalog First Look! + Other promotional items!

    I'm ready for the pre-order! Luckily the sales manager remembered me when I came in too. I have a soft spot for the yellow and blue, but white is looking to be a runner up.i want to see all of the colors. I have a feeling blue on blue will be it.

    Brilliant Silver 2023 Nissan Z Spotted Post-Accident + Engine Bay + Best Launch Sounds Yet

    I think that's a very realistic goal - personally I'm planning for something very similar. The current drop-in upgrades look very promising, and I think the future is only going to get better. ~575 whp at 21 psi on e30, 540 whp at 21 PSI on 93 octane pump gas, and 600+ with more serious mods...

    Brilliant Silver 2023 Nissan Z Spotted Post-Accident + Engine Bay + Best Launch Sounds Yet

    Oh man, finally some solid footage (even if it's most likely partially fake/scripted)! This sounds and moves even better than I expected. Yep, the BPV should be integrated into the compressor housing, we're seeing this on quite a fewer turbochargers, most likely due to spacing constraints...

    Should we be worried about the Z's reliability, fit and finish?

    Threads like these are a reminder of peoples' unrealistic expectations - I see them on the various forums, Facebook groups and reviews from businesses on the daily. We're talking about an affordable sports car, crammed full of goodies that is comparable to or outperforms (on paper at least) most...

    Who is going to track the new Z?

    I've typically been one to drag race and enjoy backroad cruising. I plan to track this car, though, and I'm sure our shop owner will track the Z as well.

    What has your dealer told you about the Nissan Z?

    As far as I'm aware of, there are no allocations for any dealers, as dealers know nothing and can't even submit orders. If it's anything like the new Civic (economy car that is supposed to be readily available), our company was the first person to receive one that I've seen on countless Facebook...

    Recent tune to VR30DDTT (450hp, 500whp in Q60)

    I've been following the Q50/Q60 pages for a while, and their power numbers with just basic boltons are sick. 500ish hp with this light of a car will be a riot. I see folks have already dipped into the 10s with boltons and usually with ethanol. Turbo upgrades and a fuel system should give us just...

    What has your dealer told you about the Nissan Z?

    I've stopped at and talked to two notable dealers in my area thus far (and the owner of one), and they are all in the dark (more than us). I'm fairly confident any dealer stating they have insight on specs, pricing and any promised models are 100% full of shit. Unless a source is somebody like...

    Anyone place deposit for 2023 Nissan Z or gotten on waitlist? / Are you able to place an order?

    Dang, that's pretty wild. Not many folks around here or that I know of will even tell or entertain a preorder yet and are content with $1-2k down.

    Anyone place deposit for 2023 Nissan Z or gotten on waitlist? / Are you able to place an order?

    $5k deposit on a standard production run ~$40k vehicle seems a bit steep. $1-2k should be plenty...

    ZdayZ 2021

    My thoughts exactly. That, and the C8/TLX are just priced out of my current comfort level (which I believe reflects a large portion of the community). Knowing Nissan's success with the Z platforms, especially 240 and 300, as well as the R35, I look for the new Z to be hugely successful in terms...
