Ah, I see I should've started a new thread on this instead of posting it on an existing thread. Anyway, it is possible that nothing we've speculated on is right. It is also possible that Senior Alfonso has been smoking Cuban cigars made with funny tobacco.

So many guesses here, nothing solid except for that published spec sheet. So I think come Spring 2022 we ONLY have the 400hp version, nothing less, at just above $40K for Sport. Performance >$45K. The different power levels I'm thinking towards the upcoming Nismo.

I think the Nissan spec sheets are pretty clear that it’ll be 400hp for the performance and sport versions, so to me this is a clear indication of a Nismo coming. Nissan has always said they’ll make one if there’s enough volume. This car is going to sell itself. If they had the volume to do it on the previous version, they’d have it for this one.

Alfonso did a great job on the new Z.

Supra? I would not pay for that ugly styling even if it has MSRP of $30k.
Maybe it is just me.
It is an over-styled piece of work, the Supra.
Not to mention the BMW reliability. Good luck to the owners.

Great interview! One thing I got from it is that Toyota may not only have to worry about the sales for the Supra but possibly the new 86/Subaru BRZ if the price starts south of $40k getting into the $3X,XXX.00. One could look at it as a true BRZ "STi" that everyone has asked for if you will. Obviously the extra pounds will be there with the new Z compared to an 86/BRZ but so will an extra 172 HP/166 lb ft tq. I'm sure someone looking for a bit more power will be tempted to go the Z route for $5K-10K more instead of a $20k+ upgrade for the Supra with no manual option.

I agree. I thunk it’s ugly. Not sure why people like it.

I think the new 86 will come in at $26k MT and $27k AT. Everyone is saying $40k for a base Z, so I don't think the 86 has to worry about anything. The 2.0 Supra on the other hand... 🤣

A T top would be nice but not a deal breaker…
