performance-wise you may be right...The new Z will cost significantly less than even a bare bones C8. If anyone can afford a C8 and took a new Z over it they must be crazy. The C8 is better in every way possible.
i don't believe anyone is...unless they are looking at the nismo which makes more sense then the other trims.While I find the new C8 to be a bit odd looking is anyone considering or will be cross shopping it with the new Z?
i would rather have a nismo - provided its as awesome as we are all speculation...I'll take a Nismo Z over a base C8. I don't ever see it happening, but if I were to get a Vette it would at minimum be a Z06. I loved the C6 ZR1 when it came out, and the C7 has grown on me some since the release of the C8, but I'll pass on GM unless we're talking classics or pickups.
Same here, still an import guy at heart. Owned 6 Japanese cars before waking up one day, realized that I'm probably never going to own a MKIV Supra, R33 or R34, and for lack of choices I settled for a different twin turbo inline 6 that of course had to be Germani would rather have a nismo - provided its as awesome as we are all speculation...
but also, im and import guy...so theres that
sadly gone are the days of a "good deal" on some of the jdm classics.Same here, still an import guy at heart.

You got a C8 at MSRP!?I own a C8 HTC. I am NOT looking for the Z to replace this car as I view it as a totally different driving experience with a manual transmission, smaller wheelbase and more bare bones.
That said, I really hope Nissan dealers let us by this car at MSRP just like most of Chevy dealers have done using the normal ordering system. And hopefully not with a 12 to 18 month wait!! Yes, I want my cake and eat it too……
Why not? Certain big Chevy dealers have been selling Vettes at MSRP (no more than) for years.You got a C8 at MSRP!?
Lol man in my area they're all going for over 100K and I think they're still 100K last time I checkedWhy not? Certain big Chevy dealers have been selling Vettes at MSRP (no more than) for years.
You just need to order early with deposit and wait for 1 yr (in case of C8).
I almost pulled the trigger back in late 2019.
To me, C8 attracts too much attention than I need.
The new Z is just perfect for me.
C8 is a good deal for many.
Waiting list is still long, and ADM still goes for $20k if not more (if someone wants it NOW).
Reliability wise, give it a few years...
Yes, but I also had to wait 18 months to get the car from the time of deposit to delivery. COVID and parts shortage has caused numerous plant delays in building C8s. Its a GREAT car, but I'm not too sure its worth the long wait. It certainly get a fair amount of attention when driving it.You got a C8 at MSRP!?
