Are you guys seeing any major differences from the 370Z?

The most glaring thing to me is the design of the exhaust. Other than the diff as noted, nothing is really standing out to me. Where were these photos taken?

edit: just noticed all the "stickers" that were added to the photo 🤣

Weird because when I took this pic under the blue one in Anaheim seems to be diff ahead of the diff, resonators missing?

A lot of it is similar to the 370Z. The rear exhaust muffler is definitely smaller than stock 370z, otherwise the resonators look exactly the same. The stock exhaust on the 370Z was extremely underwhelming, so I'm assuming that must be the performance exhaust. Rear diff does look completely different.

That was a pre-production model though, no?
I have a feeling that the two used for the unveiling were prototypes. Hence why some of the items didnt work on them. The ones spotted on the trucks are probably preproduction cars that are going to be used for PR, training, demo, etc.

Yes definitely pre-production. Also I want to note something; the stock 370Z exhaust rear muffler alone is very heavy (26.8lbs). Having the smaller exhaust probably cut that into at least half. Also if you compare the design of 2023 Z performance wheels to the old 370z sport wheels, I'd guess they are slightly lighter than the 370z sports'. I'm thinking they probably tried cutting weight as much as possible to keep it as light as can be. If I were to guess I'd say the new Z will weigh around the 370Z ~3400lbs.
