I'll wait till the car is shown and reviews come out, Nissan is a s*** show right now and I'm still sour from how they ruined Infiniti with the Q50/60, those cars drove nothing like the the G35/37, not to mention I find the 3.0TT has a lot less character than the 3.5 and 3.7, so right now I don't have much hope for the next Z.

I'm with you. I'm expecting this to be a rebadged Q60 with maybe a shorter wheelbase. It will probably lack a manual option as well. I have no factual basis for any of this, just my pessimistic view of Nissan and car manufacturers in general.

New Fairlady Z: 400ps engine operated with 6-speed MT is thrilling!

Quote:
■March 2021 debut

As with the Z33, the new Fairlady Z, which debuts in March 2021 at the earliest, will be a symbol of Nissan's restart.

Initially it was said to be a big minor change version of the current Z34 type, but it turned out to be a full model change including changes to the suspension geometry while making the most of the floor base.

The engine that fits in the body that is reminiscent of the original S30 type is a 3L, V6 twin turbo with 304ps/40.8kgm specification and 405ps/48.4kgm specification.

This engine itself has already been adopted for the skyline, but note that a 6-speed MT is also available, which is different from the skyline!

You can enjoy the joy of operating a 400ps class engine with MT. It is sure to become an exciting machine reminiscent of the old Nissan.

The price is expected to be around 4 million to 5.5 million yen.

Supposed to be revealed September 15, or at least the prototype will.

I mean more power to them if its true, but hopefully it isn't the old 6 speed with the same CSC/CMC issues, and hopefully this time they actually will vent the brakes so people don't see ice mode anymore, and hopefully not a saddle shaped fuel tank that would cause fuel starvation going around right turns

end rant from a disappointed former 370Z owner

Wow, the pictures don’t really look promising. They look like what the 370z would look like on grand theft auto

Thumbs up

The fact that it's a TURBO, means easy modding to @450-500hp. For this type of car @ $40k and nice styling... It'll be a hit!

What my first thoughts were; dude’s hands are probably covering a shifter to a CVT unit knowing Nissan

I hope it gets a manual.
From that 'hand on the shift knop' it could just as wel be someone putting it in park

If they make a roadster, I hope they do it right. The 350Z roadster was 346kg heavier than the contempary z4 roadster (e85) (yes, thats 763lbs heavier, and luggagespace was about twice as small, so not the ideal car to go on a short holiday driving some alpine mountain passes, the z4 was clearly superior in that).
Even the coupe was already very heavy compared to z4 coupe and porsche cayman.
A light, agile sportscar with manual transmission is what I want. Is this going to be it? (oh and low CO2 emissions is pretty important where I live, pricewise)
