I just got calls from about 4/5 different dealerships in SOCAL saying they have some allocations on the way. Mostly Diamond Black it seems. Costa Mesa is getting a Silver Performance Manual. Mossy Kearny Nissan is getting 2 Black Performances, 1 with red interior and 1 with blue, both at MSRP apparently. A couple other Socal dealers have allocations as well.

Still waiting on a Passion Red Performance to land stateside other than that one in Massachusetts .. 🙃

yeah reach out and see what's good. I don't see any of the ones they have transit on the nissanusa website, but I see them when I go to the dealer's direct website

That’s one thing that puzzles me. What’s with the lack of Passion Red, Nissan? Red is a classic sports car color, especially for a Z. Nissan acts like they never heard of it, for this car, so far. :rolleyes:

Maybe the tricoat colors are difficult to produce with ongoing manufacturing shortages so they get prioritized less?

Though the white is also tricoat and don’t seem to be that rare, so who knows 🤷‍♂️

There seems to be blue, yellow, silver, gray tricoats, albeit not in the numbers we’d like to see, but the Passion Red is next to non-existent, at this point, by comparison. I have no idea why but, in addition to increased production, I hope we see Passion Red become a lot more prevalent.

I believe only yellow, white, n red are tricoat colors, and yellow being more prevalent makes sense considering it’s the Proto/flagship color

But I agree hopefully we see a lot more Passion Reds show up cause it’s a really nice color; I think it was pretty popular for the Q60s too

Ah, yes. :) I should have said something like “multi-colored,” what with colors such as silver having the black top. I’d love having a “one-color, no black top” Passion Red but that’s not an option at this point. Heck, it’s almost as if the Passion Red isn’t an option in any form, which for a sports car is crazy to me. Imagine if you couldn’t find your typical luxury sedan in a gray or silver. ;)

I actually saw a red one for the first time today on my lunch break! It's the first Z I've seen actually in the wild and not at a dealership. Not sure where they got it but it definitely wasn't from NY because I've been checking everywhere lol. It really caught my eye driving by, pretty stunning. I was like hey what's this little red sports car? Sure enough it was a Z. Really wasnt expecting that.

Wow! That’s good to hear. It’s about as rare seeing a Bigfoot, only not scary. ;)

I live in a major metro, Houston, and have yet to see one of the new Z’s “in the wild.” The only Z I’ve see in person, so far, was a beautiful blue one at a dealership in Gulfport, when I was on a road trip. They were busy cleaning it for delivery to some lucky new owner. :)

I also finally saw my first Z in the wild this past weekend in the Bay Area. The bright yellow really popped on a sunny afternoon. I had previously seen the yellow indoors at an auto show. Much more attention grabbing in traffic.

Not in CA, but the dealer I originally had a deposit with finally got their Z - a Boulder Gray Performance 6SP for $64100. I already bought one in OR, otherwise I would be #1 for this one. They said if I wasn't happy with mine, I could trade it in for this one. Mine has already had a flat tire and a broken window before the break-in period, so I'm thinking mine is cursed. So I'm thinking...

In SF Bay Area.
One of my neighbors has a Proto.
I saw it often. Still waiting for mine. :(
Checked few dealers in my area.
They either have 0 or 1.
