Ahh good eye!! Might be the supposed "white" mule they have.
Yep... don’t believe it is either of the two that we saw together...the one we think is the silver one has a different number plate, and the different types of camo on the doors compared to the rest of the car is not evident on the other car in the picture with the two cars tailing each other.
So unless they have re camouflaged a car there is defiantly three out being tested
Which means the source who gave us the info about the third is legit

Thing is...I want one. I’ll buy it...all they need to do is release specs and pricing and I’m in. If it means I have to wait till next year...fine, but at least I will know it’s coming, rather than having 0 to go off right now.
Heat testing etc is usually the last part of the process before going into producing, meaning they have specs, they know how much it costs, and they know approx when it’s going into production...
I really don’t understand why they are putting detail off when they could be securing buyers and getting $$ in the bank

Because it's still not too late to make minor changes.

I'm digging the camo look , Z would great in army like green with the wheels from Proto
I'm a big fan of British Racing Green with brown leather interior and bronze wheels. I think the 86 Hakone edition did it really well and proved that it's still a desirable color. Hakone is a name for a popular touge or curvy mountain backroad in Japan. Maybe Nissan could do a version and name it after another one like the Izu Z, Mikuni Z or the Mt. Fuji Z. Though, the Fuji Z should be brilliant white with a brown interior. Kinda excited to see if Nissan will go for any really unique special editions.

BRG would be a killer look on this car. Hope Nissan offers some more unique colors. You can’t beat a good paint .

Well.....they are going in with the 240Z Nostalgia with this one.

- Design
- Badging
- Blue Interior
- "Heritage" paint colors

They liked to do "1 year only" colors on the Zs, I wouldn't be shocked if the Z35 has a new "Heritage" color every year.

I love the dark green too. I'm really tempted to get the F8 in the Challenger (which is more of an olive green) but looks good to me. But the fact I've been driving a green car for almost 5 years and always wanted a dark red or Cinnamon shade.

As much as I'd love a metallic/mica BRG (the Hakone version of the 86 has a great take on this colour) I very much doubt we'd see it in as a standard Z colour. Foreign carmakers nearly always limit themselves to red, blue, and monochromatic for their moderately priced sports/performance cars that aren't special editions.

Did the exhaust sound nice in person?
My guess in what it sounds like; Take the Q60 Red Sport exhaust note, and imagine a slighty louder tone as the midpipe length or midpipe resonator size is probably going to be shorter/smaller resulting in louder sound. That's what the case was for the 370z/G37.

As a Q50 Red Sport owner the exhaust on it and the Q60 is not aggressive. I had the non-resonated Infiniti sport exhaust installed on mine, but it was way too loud for my taste. So installed the resonated version three weeks later and was much happier with it. This is purely speculation, but I believe many won't be pleased with the exhaust sound out of the new Z. Just trying to prepare others in case they don't like what they hear. Not too big an investment to change it to your liking.

Here is hoping its not too quiet… :)
Lol it will be (for those of us who are used to that modded vq sound) but we know that the aftermarket will be throwing this car through the ringer so no worries. We'll have the sub $1000 exhaust options up to the infamous Tomei and Titanium Amuse running $5k+. I am hella soopa excited to see what FI, ARK and HKS do with this platform to truly make the V6TT noise pop compared to the Q60.

Lets hope and the after market should be fast to have these for the Z, no a new drivetrain…
