This feels like the early 00's where Nissan had to pivot and do a massive paradigm shift to gain some market back.
Carlos had them cutting costs to maximize profits, that's why we have a ton of cheap FWD, CVT driving appliances/rental cars. Sure it worked great.......for about 10 years at...
370 is actually a little roomier than the 350 once you're in it but the way the roof slopes and has overhangs, you have to tuck your head down to get in and out. The Mk. V Supra is bonkers with it's overhangs.
Also the 370 did away with all of those wonderful cubby holes the 350 had.
MB licensed the design to Jatco, it's still a 9G-Tronic.....just built by Jatco
Just a car guy, grew up on Chevys but went Import as an adult.....I like going fast AND turning.
I've done many pilgrimages to Tail of the Dragon, Moonshiner, Cherohalla, etc.

Hey Chris! How's the Nismo?
Z Club of Cleveland still doing the cruises in the Metroparks?
I can't recall if we chatted at a ZCON or Nismo Fiesta. I'm the guy from The East Side (Fairfax)
Now that you've called BS I think my line is "Oh no, I can't disclose any details because it will...
I have 0 concrete info on the Nismo aside from "Not just a bodykit", "Brembos" and "It'll be a baby GT-R"
VR38 and DCT are just guesses on my part based on stuff I heard back in the mid '10s
Nissan is in a lot more trouble than we know. They are going to use as much "Off the shelf" stuff as...
Oh yeah, colors.
All 2020 370Z colors will carry over for the first year with additions of Yellow and that new Orange they are so proud of.
They are going all in with the 240Z nostalgia on this one so don't be shocked if we see some "Heritage" colors down the line.
No clue but they tried to negate the weight gains as much as possible with aluminum and carbon.
I think the aim was to not gain weight over the Z34 and sure as hell not the Z33.
I think weight wise it'll be on par with the 350Z and 370Z.
Z33, Z34, Z35 = S13, S14, S15.....think of it like that
