Good call. Perhaps he’s talking about an as yet to be announced lower tier model, or I misinterpreted his words to suggest there would be a lower power model.Both the Sport (base) and Performance version will have 400Hp 350Tq. It's been said by Nissan multiple times and you can see the spec sheet below.
I agree. I thunk it’s ugly. Not sure why people like it.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.
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...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.
