Good that Nissan have brought this out probably one of the last non hybrid sports cars. Just should have done this in 2016 around the time of the Infiniti Q60 which uses that direct injection engine at 400hp. 

Be interested to know how the launch control works on a manual!

No mention if the 9 speed auto is a twin clutcher and liking the mechanical LSD option. 

overall I don’t think this design is cutting edge enough but would like to see it in the metal. The platform I assume is a slightly modified 370z so aging quite a bit now  

At least they have a tft dash but should have two 12 inch displays.

Cant  help thinking this should have been all electric based on a lower performance taycan. Perhaps this will be launched in 2030…

Nissan are falling behind in this area and using an engine to power a small battery and motors is a dead end IMO.

I really want to see one in the metal. 

There are a some details I'm not fond of but I'm starting to quite like it which might be a problem!

This bloke, at the launch, claims he's going to compare the Z to the Supra - Don't believe him, he lies (I've watched the video).

However, there are two noticeable things - Firstly he claims that the new Z shaves 50% off the 370z's 0-60mph performance. That brings it down to well under 3 seconds. Is he lying again? Possibly not.

 

 

You are right to doubt him - the claimed difference in 0-60mph is 15% not 50%. A simple misunderstanding but you'd think if you are going to plaster yourself on Youtube and have any respect, you'd get the details right! (And 50% would mean a 0-60 time of about 2.6 seconds :lol: - depending on model of 370 of course). 

Should mean though that it's going to be c.4.5 seconds for the 0-60mph dash.

I've just listened to it again - at 11:48, where he talks about the 0-60, he is probably saying 15%, but the audio goes a bit funny and it sounds like 50%. Thanks mate. I thought it was a bit far-fetched.

I keep hearing rumours that someone high up in Renault is pressing hard for the new Z to be sold in Europe.  There maybe a glimmer of hope.

Personally - and selfishly - I hope it doesn't come to the UK. I'm not getting one and I'd like my car to retain its rarity/value.

why would Renault want competition for the Alpine?

I thought that too...

Plus I think the days of Renault influencing Nissan decisions disappeared with Nissan's management retrenchment that followed the Carlos (Fandago) case.

Sorry!

True!  Also, if they aren't sold in the UK the imported ones will be special.

It would be a killer to go to the hassle and expense to import one then have a UK version launched a year later.
