We know. We hated to write that as much as you're disappointed to read it. One of the most oft-repeated mutterings during this test went something like "I wanted to like it more than I did." Our initial brief encounter with the Z at the launch event showed promise, but in this longer fight against direct and tangential rivals on roads of our own choosing, the long-awaited Z fell to the back of the pack. At first glance it captures the value and performance of the original Z quite well, but nothing brings flaws to light like several days of driving the competition.
Yikes!

I also came to a similar conclusion - if I'm going 2-seat, Supra 6mt wins, if I'm going 2+2 Mustang Mach 1 wins.

I really think the entry level Z is the one to get over the entry level Supra, but the I6 6mt Supra is the better choice over the up-trimmed Z; I don't know that Nissan is making much money off of the entry level model though.

So aftermarket wheels tires suspension on the Z or wait for the NISMO. Nothing has changed.
