    Got call from my dealership today - expect to be driving my AU Z Proto before the end of July!

    Although I have a dealer allocation I am still number 3. So if these cars trickle in one at a time then summer is probably out. It depends on how much pull your dealer group has from their legacy track record of selling the Halo Brand cars like the GTR and Z. This isn't democracy, the bulk of...

    2020 Mid-Engine Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Starts at $59,995

    It is just way too much money. But I would love a C8. I put an order in and GM cancelled mine last October. It came to $109K with everything. But since then they stopped orders and the reseller ones are out of reach.

    2020 Mid-Engine Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Starts at $59,995

    This is what the C8 is going for right now here in Canada. 2022 Z51 for $157,000: https://www.autotrader.ca/a/chevrolet/corvette/vancouver/british columbia/19_12299468_/?showcpo=ShowCpo&ncse=no&ursrc=pl&urp=7&urm=8&sprx=250

    Got call from my dealership today - expect to be driving my AU Z Proto before the end of July!

    I have. It is redundant now and updates are scattered through the Canadian threads. The upshot is we all though we would have had a car well in hand now but unless these cars are somewhere hidden in our respective home ports then it seems we could be waiting for some time. All of us go off the...

    Got call from my dealership today - expect to be driving my AU Z Proto before the end of July!

    Perhaps that was me going back and forth with West Aussie who I quite get on with. And the AUS and Canadians often post in each others forums and yes we should be more precise. However, your cut and paste does not substantiate anything about whether my information is accurate or not. What I do...

    Check my location. I am in Canada. And the admin did not have to correct me. More misleading information. Hope you get your car.

    Got call from my dealership today - expect to be driving my AU Z Proto before the end of July!

    I am referring to the Canadian situation my friend. So far all the talk of freighters and Sea Cans secretly arriving on the West Coast of Canada have amounted to nothing. There is nothing random about what I am citing. Simply reporting from a source that actually hangs with Nissan Canadian and...

    Anotha One from C&D: Comparison Test: 2022 BMW M240i vs. 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 vs. 2023 Nissan Z vs. 2022 Toyota GR Supra 3.0

    And they gave the win to the slowest car? The Mustang sounds amazing, but everytime you turn around you see one. They are a dime a dozen, along with the BMW. The Supra and Z are more rare and I think that's a good thing. The Supra is a hell of a car but that closed in cabin and sloping roof line...

    Got call from my dealership today - expect to be driving my AU Z Proto before the end of July!

    Again I hope you are right. But if anyone put a deposit down with any of the Applewood dealerships in Vancouver then you are dealing with the most untrustworthy dealer group known for spreading misinformation!

    Got call from my dealership today - expect to be driving my AU Z Proto before the end of July!

    Don't get me wrong. I want me car this summer and I'm #3 and I'm pretty sure the two ahead of me are the heavy hitter GTR customers. I've stopped paying attention to most of the fake news around the Z release, but the only thing that makes me listen to my guy is he personally owns 4 Nissan...

    Got call from my dealership today - expect to be driving my AU Z Proto before the end of July!

    If I get mine I'm not storing it. I'll drive it no matter what.

    Got call from my dealership today - expect to be driving my AU Z Proto before the end of July!

    I highly doubt any of this is true. We are all being told conflicting stories.

    Got call from my dealership today - expect to be driving my AU Z Proto before the end of July!

    These kind of reports are funny. My dealership owner just got in touch with me a few days ago and said production will start in July hopefully.

    This Seems Like A Pretty Fair Assessment Of The Z From Car and Driver

    I actually had one delivered and refused the sale last October. 2006 White S with a brand new Porsche engine and it was at 45K. It was a corp connection. Car had 60kms on it. But it wasn't an unmolested car. Had 911 rims on it. A weird spoiler. So I sent it back. But it felt really fast. Had a...

    A week with the Z

    Not in the city where I live. I'm on the main strip on the beach and I saw a White 370Z about a month ago. But the twins are everywhere. You can see 10 a day.

    A week with the Z

    When I first started thinking about the twins I was like no way, ever. Then slowly watching review videos from competent reviewers and I can see that there is real track design power built into the twins. And they look good. Combine that with the fact that here in Canada when my allocation...

    Betcha the Cayman had way more fun. I'm still tempted to get one.

    2023 Nissan Zs Spied on Carrier Trucks - Has Production Begun?

    As usual we are all guessing. But there will likely not be any cars "hitting the lot" whatsoever. There will be a dealer show and tell car and then the first dealer allocations from the presale, and then they will start fulfilling the national online reservation orders. There will not be a...

    This Seems Like A Pretty Fair Assessment Of The Z From Car and Driver

    If whoever just wants a track car why would you buy the new Z or the White Labelled Toyota Zupra even? Just go buy a used Cayman S and the mid engine will run circles around both. For the rest of us that want warranty the choice is a JDM and a BMW with a glued on Toyota badge.
