Could be. Makes me wonder what the 1:23 Easter egg on the Proto entertainment dash is referring to.
Theres also the off chance it will come sooner which would be hard to believe. Or maybe it’s being built in the states? Dan alluded to it being more complex than we realize, so maybe they don’t have a production date at all until it passes all the proper testing. We’re speculating on speculation hahaha

And if it’s not until January ‘23 I’m gonna have to buy a Q60 to hold me over

i dont think changing the plant over is too difficult. i think it may be covid shortage issues on multiple fronts. everything is still so messy with shipping and production of materials.

as much as i think waiting longer will seriously decrease new Z sales it may just be what we gotta deal with. the problem i see is that the longer they wait the more and more the new Z will be behind the competition. yes it has a manual option which the supra does not but i always felt like the Z was behind tech/power wise on the competition from initial release. hopefully thats not the case with the new one.

its definitely in regards to the timeline. He decided to respond once the claims were made about production dates. So I fear we are much further off than we hope.
That wouldn’t make sense though...because he said the reveal is coming soon. What be the point of revealing it and then waiting another year to be available.
If it’s another year...I’m out

Why would they build in the states, when the 370Z manufacturing has finished and there is a perfectly good factory not being used to its full potential....I don’t think that would make sense either because it’s being released in Asia Australia and the US Japan is kinda middle ground, could be wrong though,

I personally think he commented to do exactly what he has achieved ...keep everyone guessing and second guessing anything we have heard weather it be true...or not

But I think he has also done some damage. With so much uncertainty and nothing solid to go on, I think a few of us might start weighing up our options.
For instance, I was planning on buying a new car last year, I’ve waited because I really wanted the Z, but I can’t wait much longer as we will be needing another car....so what do I do.

^ Yup! And to add insult to injury, some will end up switching over to the new BRZ then bad mouthing Nissan for being late, and unreliable, blah blah blah. But, when the Z does finally show up, then those who jumped ship will def be the first to regret not waiting. As much as we all hate to wait, I think Nissan knows how much this community as well as the journalists and A list magazines will for 100% base Nissan's future sports car outlook and predictions based on what this Z offers up. So as a consumer as much as I can hate Nissan for not giving us more information (which I rant about daily), I will give them credit that they are taking their time (albeit much longer then others), but given the whole situation, I'd rather wait and have a much much more buttoned product then a half assed quick to market approach.

Can you give an example of a time an automaker has intervened to discredit information and that information later turned out to be true?

I just doesn't seem logical to me. What could they possibly stand to gain by discrediting true rumors?

I'm not being facetious here, I'm genuinely interested in your experience.
Happens all the time, leaked CADs or any other information for that matter.

In the Corvette circles there's a running joke "If it's been deleted, it's true"

The point I was making...is I’m starting to be in a position where I have to buy another car ( second son getting older) so soon I’m going to have to make a choice.

Now if Dan had let us believed it’s still a November timeline then I would of waited, because well it’s the light at the end of the tunnel....and if I got to November and the specs had been released or a set release date had, then I may of waited even a little longer.
Now with nothing I don’t know what to do...lucky I can get my deposit back in another two months if nothings been revealed by then i might....regrettabley have to do just that

In my experience, when the info is false....the automakers don't bat an eye.

When something is true, that's when the interventions begin.
I appreciate your skepticism but please do not make an implication as to my integrity. Your "source" is incorrect and I have tried to get on here to dispel what you are claiming as fact. I wish I could counter each and every point made, but I cannot at this point in time. It's good to be an enthusiast, but you're being fed improper information by your source, so please, instead of questioning me, perhaps question them.

I understand and appreciate everyone's frustrations and apologize for the wait for more information. As soon as I release it I will certainly post it here.

Thank you.

I've noticed you've dispelled where it's wrong.

You've said nothing about the badge.
You've said nothing about the brakes.

Problem is this thread is fairly broad....

Nissan is a creature of habit, I don't think the packages are off.

Is it about green pieces of paper?
Is it about horses?
Is it about paint?

Actually…all of it. Official announcements will be coming soon. Please don’t buy into this Houston guy’s “facts.” Much more to tell in the coming months.
Green fabric
Equus virtute
Acrylic enamel

All of it.

Though, I do think Dan gave us something! Check out the name of his Car(s): ;)

The fact that Dan has been so adamant about dispelling you Houston, and telling you that your source is wrong, might make you think twice about everything you been told (or, frankly, that you may have inferred).

Side note: The veiled threats other people are making to take their business elsewhere if Dan doesn't share something immediately/soon are pretty lame. He won't say it, I'm sure, but I will. It's almost petulant at this point. I'm sure some people might just be venting about the lack of information and that they have other pressures that won't allow them to get a Z, but perception is reality. It's especially transparent when it's juxtaposed to some iteration of 'I wish Dan would share something with us because..'

In my case it’s not a threat...it’s a real need for a car as my eldest is getting his license..we need another car, the aim was for him to buy mine and for me to buy a new car...not a threat, it’s a need

I want the Z for sure...but I need a car...perhaps don’t judge people so quickly

look Dan is legit and is it possible he's deflecting to hold on the mystique longer before he can reveal actual info? possibly.

should you go and tryin and burn him at the stake for saying your source is wrong? no.

in his position, i totally understand and know the game. i do also believe that he will give us the info when it is deemed ok to be released.

also, i'm with @West Aussie is it gonna be in showrooms this year or next @Dan_Passe ? lol :cool:
