Was hoping for more info but hard to tell if the program was done or everything went down... Seems promising though, just need to wait for hands on reviews.

I like it more than the Supra but probably mostly due to availability of manual.

I hope this car drives well and doesn't fall apart. This is much more my speed than the new BRZ. I still don't love the looks though.

It's Nissan, it's meant to fall apart. After multiple generations of Nissan my entire extended family moved on to Honda's. Model after model every generation of Nissan sedans went from ok to decent to junk to crapshoot.

I have driven the last 370Z anniversary edition in Midnight purple in 6 speed and compared it to the BMW 335i, I bought the BMW instead. This car will definitely bring me back to the stealership.

I don't know why Nissan even bothered with this. 20 something minutes and no pricing, no availability dates. Just release a one page URL with 400HP, 350 ft lbs, 6MT or 9spd auto, sport and performance trims.

I'm stoked for new cars but no pricing, no weight, I mean talk about the hype train. Just be honest. "We can't give you a release date because of chip" or parts "shortages.". Hey folks get ready for the BIG REVEAL, where we reveal absolutely nothing! You can place your order in 6 months for something that maybe comes out in a year! Remember to tip your waiter and try the veal!

Why hate the BMW? I feel like they have a very outdated stigma of being unreliable and a money pit.

Because they don't drive or feel like Japanese brand vehicles.

I didn't say anything about hate either, just I didn't want one. I know how they drive and feel, just not interested.

Definitely this. The timing is not a coincidence. My feeds were flooded with GR86 content all morning, then as the day went on I saw more and more 400Z content.

I donít know. I just think itís a bit silly. Mfr. says here is a release date, then they donít release anything really. No weight, no pricing, no performance metrics. I guess weíll know pricing in months, availability in what a year? Massive underwhelm. I get the chip shortage so maybe they donít know pricing yet. Cool, give us some numbers. They know what they are. Delaying releasing this info does what? They are going to release the car either way. Just tired of the marketing bs.

Lady in the video is hard to watch and listen to. Too excited and she stances hard. Ironically, I could have done without her in the video.

Sounded more like a Saturday morning infomercial than a car introduction.

So no, "400 Z"; just "Z". Oh well, so much for keeping tradition and a nod to the past...

Curious what the initial markup will be on them and if dealers will require a deposit before test drives...

The looks are growing on me. Was horrified at first, but I'm a sucker for Blue.

This should be a fun car.

You can always take a 370Z out for a drive to get a feeling for what it's going to handle and drive like as there's only so much they can differentiate given it's the same car.

Around 40k to start, Spring 22 and it will probably be around the same weight as the 370z plus 50-100

Nice mhoward, but no weights That's never a good thing if they release all those specs and no weight.

Ahhh *rap. Performance model has the bigger brakes and the mechanical LSD diff.

Some positives:
Both models share the same engine.
Carbon Fiber Driveshaft (6MT only)
Double Wishbone Suspension (wake up BMW M2/M3/M4)
LED lighting standard

Assuming bigger TFT screens on the performance model?

More importantly, what is the weight?

No LSD on the base "Sport" model? With 400hp? Geez, kind of forces anyone serious into the Performance trim. Will be curious about pricing.

Also, 3 overdrive gears on the 9 speed auto with a lower final drive than the manual will be interesting to read reviews on.

400z wouldn't be keeping tradition either.
The number prefix referenced the displacement.
240z: 2.4L
260z: 2.6L
280z: 2.8L
300zx: 3.0L
350z: 3.5L
370z: 3.7L
The new Z: 3.0L.

See the problem? Were they supposed to just call it the 300z again?

Not to mention its also a throwback to the fact that in Japan they called "fairlady Z"
