    Production 400Z Spotted in Gray and Silver! – Pics & Videos

    That's correct for the 1st gen cars. Badges were ordered changed to "Datsun...", before units were released for dealer orders.

    Production 400Z Spotted in Gray and Silver! – Pics & Videos

    Thanks OP. I love the looks...and it comes with its' own Star Trek "communicator". I would be interested in the MT...Nice to see something different than the yellow. I painted my last Z car, a '78, a Mitsubishi color called "Maui Lagoon Blue", with a touch of white pearl added. If they offered...

    No, I don't, but I did notice it in the Grassroots Motorsport media review Youtube vid I watched today...the owner pic was much worse

    Confirming speculation about the 400Z underpinnings, project chief explains what’s underneath.

    This is a thing since 2007. If the same CSC part # is on the new Z, I'll pass...

    It’s Official: Nissan Won’t Bring The New Z Sports Car To Europe

    Don't blame the car makers, blame the power hungry emissions Nazis in Europe and California. We're tired of spending major money de-strangulating machines that are half choked to death by these power mongers who want to kill IC powered machines. I'd like to see the makers stop offering machines...

    Nissan Z Proto Livestream Reveal Viewing Party! + Reactions

    Love it, even though I always save my final opinion until I see a new machine in person. I'm already imagining a tasteful rear lip spoiler, and functional hood vents harking back to my '78 280s...Looking forward to more details...

    It’s Official: Nissan Won’t Bring The New Z Sports Car To Europe

    Lefties gone wild. CA is not far behind euro regs, and that's not good for the rest of us. Suby can't offer a BRZ version the new GR86, as they don't have enough eco points in their line to satisfy the emissions Nazis....they will kill IC powered cars, if not stopped.

    Hello from Texas. Bought my 1st Z, a '78 coupe MT, back in '82, and I'm forever impressed with the performance and durability of the S30 series. I'm stoked to see Nissan bringing a new MT version, especially as other makers postpone new sports car offerings. I may just have to buy one. :)

    Nissan Z vs Toyota Supra

    The '78 280Z was my 1st real sports special for me. I bought the car used in '82, just before leaving for college. The MKV picked up some cues that reminded me of that car, especially the roof line profile and straight 6. After owning/driving a number of auto trannys, including PDK, I...

    2022 400Z Pricing Talk

    Someone posted a pic of their MKV Supra seat, where the factory cover wound up looking like a baggy, poor fitting aftermarket slip on. I have little confidence in BMW quality, and will be watching the new Z...
