The latest speculations point to the new Z being powered by the VR30DDTT twin-turbo V6 3.0L engine outputting 400-500 hp.

What do you think the final output will be?

i would assume regular model 400-450 max and a nismo being the 450-500hp mark.

best part, the engine has been out long enough there's a bunch of parts already available. i assume minimal research/tests would need done to alter the parts like exhausts to fit the new car.

So does the "400z" name stand for 400+ hp now? Twin-turbo V6 going to be so tuneable for high power. And sounds like the power figure will top the new Supra straight from the factory.

yea if it is 400Z i guess thats the angle? the name has always been based on the engine displacement.

i do like that it'll top the supra figures and i assume be on par with it in the weight department.

400 has to stand for HP. That figure in displacement is not realistic in this day and age.

I actually think it may initially come in with two options: 300hp base and 400hp sport. Then later a 480-500hp Nismo.
