Hey guys! I love cars and have been following the 400z info for awhile. I'm looking to replace my 2016 Mustang GT soon and am not too picky as far as brand or type of car. It just has to be quick, decent looking and most of all fun to drive. My most recent cars have been the 16 GT premium, 14 GT base, 13 Genesis Coupe and 10 Genesis Coupe. Before that I had an 04 Nissan Sentra Spec-V (which was the first car I did extensive mods to), 98 Eclipse, 95 Mustang GT and 94 Probe GT. I've had several other "regular" cars before and in between some of these, but I'm not listing those as they were mainly point A to B or work related. I had been planning on getting a Challenger Scat Pack for the past couple years and almost bought one a couple times, but the timing and price were not right. Plus I was having trouble deciding what trim I wanted. I finally got a place with a garage and decent trade equity on my stang so I am now ready to pull the trigger.

Anyway, I'm not sure if I can hold out another year if that's how long it will take the Z to hit the lots as I am just about to order a R/T Scat Pack 1320. I just thought I'd say hi and see if any of you think its worth it to wait for more info and availability of the Nissan. I mostly like what I'm seeing of the specs and look so far. Although I'm still not sure of the front end, but it is growing on me and the latest photos look much better than the Proto. I'm not sure how easy it is to tune this engine either being a V6 twin turbo? I hear the I6 in the Supra is a beast and is easy to add 80-100hp. The Toyota is a little pricey though and has some quirks like the styling is a little over the top and no cooled seat option. I am leaning more towards a muscle car as there are not a lot of curves in my area and I love the sound of a big V8 with gobs of torque off the line, but I am open to suggestions.

Wait it will be worth it!

I say at least wait until they unveil the car officially with specs, price and release date and then decide.

Yeah, I probably should wait and hope they release info yet this year. But the thing with buying a new model is there could be kinks to work out and I'm sure there won't be any incentives and such when it first comes out. The Challenger has been out forever it seems and is one of the most reliable sporty cars at the moment. Plus they always offer decent incentives and have 0% financing for 72 months right now, not to mention I could order one a few percent under invoice. But on the other hand it is heavy and near the end of its cycle and I would most likely have to get at least 1 and maybe 2 extra wheel and tire sets as the trim I wanted comes with drag radials.

I would expect information to be out this year. As for kinks I wouldn't worry to much about first year. The platform is an upgraded version of the previous great chassis and the engine has been in the Infiniti line for many years. They have had time to work out the issues and learned.

Hello, My name is Bryan. I am turning 44 April 11th and I have owned 2 Z cars in the past, as well as 2 S13s and 2 s14s, plus various other Nissan and Infiniti Products. I am excited to see that a New Z car is coming out and the timing is looking to be perfect for me to get the new Z I have been dreaming of for most of my life! I live in Allentown, PA and currently don't own any Nissan products (I just gave my mother my Frontier after she blew her car up, lol)!

I will probably be doing a base model in either Deep pearl blue or Monarch Orange (if offered). It will be the first time I have owned a Z car since 2007. (when I sold my 1978 280z).

Hey everyone. I'm Doug and I have lost count of the number of Datsun and Nissan Z cars I have had pass thru my garages. My first was a 1970 Green (acquired in 1973), color changed to yellow pearl and basically stock. It has since transformed to the G nose, LS1 and a really pearl yellow. All the rest have come to the garage, been spiffed up and most have sold after we used them a bit. Same with the 300ZX, 350Z and 370Z. We still have 3, mine and one each for the two sons, ready for the mods they want to attempt.
I'll be ordering the 400Z as soon as I am able, S option, manual, color undetermined as of now.

Hi everyone! My name is Rene and I used to own a 04 350Z back in 2004.

I miss that car so much, but the good thing about that car it was my first show car that I got to travel do movies, meet great people and celebrities.

I’m very interested and excited to see what the new Z has to offer and I’m glad to be apart of something new.

Here’s a few photos of my old Z and my last project. You can tell from my last project I’ve always been a fan of Nissan

Hey there! Looking forward to the new z and the aftermarket world it's going to open up, especially taller 240z-like tail lights and retro style aero.
I'm on NICO as SarahLovesHer300zx and insta as z32chick. I've owned (3) z32s, still have two currently. One has an engine "built" by the previous owner but its a garbage build that I've been trying get running for years. Probably going to rob the go-fast goodies off that one and send it to the junkyard. The other is my 89 JDM z32TT 2+2 and she's my pride & joy. Hoping to add the new z to my stable in the near future.

Hi. I am glad to find this forum and look forward to seeing discussions on the upcoming Z. I bought a new 1973 and owned it until someone pulled out in front of me and totaled my car. I had planned to keep my car forever. Four years ago, after a lot of looking I found a very nice ‘72 at a fair price and purchased it. It drives as it should, everything works, it is stock, and even smells as it should. It is great a new Z is coming and it can’t come too soon. I hope to have two Z’s in the not too distant future
