I think the rear of the car is quite simply the greatest throwback to a classic car ever and is probably my favorite out of any car. With that being said I HATE the front 😬 and for a starting price of 38k for the base with 400 hp I think I’d rather get a GT Premium, SS, or……. a totally kitted out Premium GR86 with every single bell and whistle 😁

Its a very good looking car. I hope that Nissan has enhanced the chassis structure at least as good as Toyota and Subaru enhanced the chassis of the 86 and BRZ. I hope that the engine sound harmonics have been upgraded over the 370Z. They should either have a cheaper N/A V6 engine or a turbo 4 cylinder engine. Otherwise visually I do like it better than the Supra both inside and out.

It's got an ass end reminiscent of a classic Z, which is very cool. The front is ..... concepty.

The front to me looks like a modern interpretation of the original Z grill. Yes it is certainly larger and more squared off. However, I think it still echo's (as does the whole car) the styling of the original Z and the mid 90's Z. I think the 350Z and 370Z went off in a different styling direction. The new one clearly is looking to its more distant past. I have to say I like more than the current Supra. If Nissan can get the handling right and the engine sound right they have an absolute winner on their hands. Clearly more power than an 86 and BRZ. However the car starts at $40,000 so still quite a jump from the 86/BRZ money wise.

Nissan has been making crap cars for a while. Their interiors are Rubbermaid quality. The new Z is using the old chassis that is almost 20 year old platform at this point and a motor from Infiniti that hasn’t had the best reliability. To me it seems like they’re putting lipstick on a pig and rushing it to market. Looks great in photos, but we shall see how it actually stacks up.

It’s clearly aimed competition for the Supra or Mustang. I wouldn’t bother comparing to a GR86, but I’d still personally rather have a GR86 over the new Z.

I agree with you. Nissan has hopefully done more R & D to make a significant improvement to their chassis which is 20 years old. Considering they make the GTR I do believe the have the capability to make a decent chassis out of the Z. The question is will they? It is clear they have gone the cheaper route by redoing the 370Z. The styling works. It will have the power. If the handling is not significantly improved then it becomes more of a Japanese muscle car living on its heritage. While the GR86/BRZ is a rework of its original chassis it was already a much better chassis than the 370Z. At 31K I'll also stick with the GR86/BRZ.
