I really like the looks! Still not a fan of that metal strip above the door, looks out of place and awkward but maybe it will look better in person. Other then that I really dig it. That interior is awesome as well, kind of what I was hoping the interior of the GR86 would look like.

I actually don't mind the metal strip or "katana blade" as Nissan calls it. The big square grille seems more out of place to me. But overall I think they have a winner on their hands.

After watching the video more and seeing more and more pictures the 'katana blade" is slightly growing on me but if there's an option to not have it I would would take it. The large square grill is a little off putting but it has grown on me too, It definitely could be a little smaller though for sure.

If I were a. betting man I say that front grille gets tweaked a bit for the production version.

I heard the new Z is not going to be sold in Europe due to strict emissions.
Yeah I just came across this article.

However, there’s bad news for the UK and mainland Europe: the as-yet-unnamed new model won’t be offered for sale here. In a statement sent to Autocar, Nissan cited a “shrinking European sports car market and specific regulations on emissions” as the reasons why it was “unable to build a viable business case” for the car’s European release.

For me it look great! Retro design with modern touches like the headlights and taillights, though the interior looks more like a carry over than a new one. But still, it’s a good news because the manual transmission is still alive with the Z.

The interior is a bit underwhelming but that's alright if it helps keep the price low enough.

Production car leaked!!!


To me it looks really good except for the front bumper, that square grill is just off putting. Car looks brilliant from all angles except from head on. I think they definitely could have done better but regardless cant be mad about another sports car coming out, especially one that comes manual.

The new Z is rumored to start at around $35,000, and its automatic transmission will be Mercedes-Benz’s 9-speed 9G Tronic. What do you guys think? Seems like it’s sitting in between the Toyota 86/Subaru BRZ and Toyota Supra/BMW Z4.

It's going directly after the Supra and it's going to take a bunch of sales from Toyota. I don't think it's going to affect the BRZ/GR86 at all.
