I feel like we're too early for this, but here are some reported 400Z specs I stumbled cross on Facebook from a guy who reportedly has an inside source.

1171


---

The Z35 will still be a "Fairlady Z" in Japan, all other markets the Z35 will be called "Nissan Z"

MSRP: $34,995 (this is for the base with 0 options)
There will be 2 packages
  • Base: 0 options.
  • Type S: Brembos, thicker sways, coolers, other stuff.
  • Type T: Leather, Power Seats, Heated and Cooled, Auto cruise, blind spot, etc
  • Type ST: Both S and T Packages
  • Each package will be roughly 5k each, ST will set you back 10k

Base gets Akebonos, Sport or Nismo get the Brembos - No more floating calipers.

All cars get...
  • The 400hp Flavor of VR30DDTT
  • The Digital Dash
  • Android Auto / Car Play
  • Rear Duckbill

Dry Weight = 3,252lbs

Auto : Mercedes 9G-Tronic, no more 7 speed.
- Transmission is already in the Titan and it will soon be in every Nissan / Infiniti RWD vehicle (including the Qs)

Yes, this car really is a 370Z with a Body Kit and a VR30 Swap and the chassis was massaged.......heavily (more aluminum, more bracing, carbon fiber)
  • "370Z Sport" is the new "Base" (thicker sways, wider forged wheels, etc)
  • "370Z Nismo" is the new "Sport" (even wider wheels, thicker sways, bracing)
  • There is a Nismo version coming....it won't just be a body kit, exhaust, tune and some badges this time
  • No roadster to start

The 6 spd manual is a carryover from the 370Z

There are 3 USDM Production cars in the US for a Dealer's Meeting and for journalist afterwards to review.

White 2 Tone: Stick, Sport, no pics have leaked (yet)
Silver 2 Tone: Auto, Touring
Gunmetal: Auto, Base

Stoked for this!

Remember when the 370Z price dropped significantly? What year was that?

At $34,995 the Z is going to kick serious butt against the competition.

For comparison:

Mazda MX5 - $26, 830
Toyota 86 - $27,060
Subaru BRZ - $28,845
Mazda MX-5 RF - $33, 045
Nissan Z (reportedly) - $34,995
Toyota Supra 2.0 - $42,990
Toyota Supra 3.0 - $$50,00

This reported price/model structuring is basically what I had hoped Nissan would do, assuming it is true:

  • Mono-spec engine (until the NISMO)
  • Two basic packages that could be combined into a third
  • Likely some a-la-carte options either immediately or down the road (carbon-fibre pack, two-tone paint/graphics, spoiler/spoiler-delete/areo, alternate wheels)
  • Undercut Supra by around $10K similarly equipped (base 3.0 Supra @ around $50K has Brembos so the equivalent Z would likely be around $40K)

If this proves to be true, I say "bravo" for being so aggressive (y)

"Type S", isn't that Acura nomenclature and only a $4k price hike for the base model? And a 3252 lb dry weight? I really hope this isn't a case of "too good to be true".

Yep assuming the pricing structure is true, it's because most components are based on existing architecture, Nissan didn't have to invest much. It's like dropping in the VR30 into the 370Z legally with added electronics and new body. I'll take it! 400hp is plenty to start with.

It's been used by Acura but I don't know if they have exclusive rights to that name. I imagine those names for the packages will change anyway.

If - huge, cannot-be-overstated if - this is accurate, Nissan is positioning the Z to reshape what may be the "last hurrah" for the ICE-powered sports car market. It would be a colossal win.

I'm not so sure about the "Type" series of names. Seems odd for Nissan to do when they already have names to pick from. Why not have "Z","Z Sport", "Z Sport Touring" and then the "NISMO Z"...like the current 370Z (minus the anniversary editions)

In Japan, the 370Z used the designations "S" and "T", I believe this "leak" of info is from Japan, so don't expect it to mean the new Z will be available in "S" "T" and "ST". However, in Japan those trims did align with the trims available in USA for the 370Z, so the leak from Japan just uses those terms for their reference.

Wonder if that Suez Canal blockage impacts any of Z-related deliveries to our shores, or only impacting European makes, hmmm

Nissan has used the word "Type"
A handful of times during the 350z years. the long nose Type E ...a roadster called the Type F and the special NISMO was called Type 380RS.


also like stated above the touring model in japan was called the ST as I swear I remember those letters from gran turismo

Interesting. I guess it works then. Thanks.
Do you think we'll see anything interesting for the Z from factory, like that long nose?

that just made that long nose for homologation rules for Super GT racing. its when they swapped from the R34 GTR to the Z33

they made like 5 of them just to count as a production model so they could run the Z in Super GT.


but the Nissan made 20 NISMO versions called the S-tune GT.

and then that Fairlady Z Version ST Type G I was talking about was in 2006 and Japan only. was available in this purple with like an apricot red/orange type interior. it was all purely cosmetic. very similar to the 40th anniversary car

Then the final year for the 350z there was a Type F in Japan in roadster and coupe. it was similar to this but maybe it had a new yellow or something? cant remember exactly but long story short there is some history for both Type and S,T for the Z

Where this naming convention comes from is the Japanese Fairlady Z they use the S,T and ST as versions for the 2020 car. They Japanese Z uses "Version S" instead of "Type S" but it is common to use either for nissan. Type S was used on the S15 Silvia from 1998-2002. It is also used on the current Japanese skyline and the fuga.
