Hi everyone,

I've been following this board for a while and just signed up today. I'm pretty excited for the 400Z, I think there have been some great cars coming out from Japan lately, after a somewhat conservative period, and the Z looks to really hit the mark.

I've always been into late 90s JDM cars and all things Japanese culture, I previously owned a 1996 R33 Gts-t. Currently I drive a Subaru XV/Crosstrek, and while it's a great car...it's not a sportscar.

I look forward to more news as the Z gets closer to release, and following this board for the latest updates and everybody's thoughts!

Welcome to the forum @theboosh! How long did you own your R33 for?

Welcome @theboosh! Did you ever drive a Z or other 90's and beyond Japanese cars?
If so, how did they stack up to your R33? Anything you hope the final 400Z will have at production?

My friends had TT Z's, they definitely pulled harder and had more lower end torque. The 33 had a bit of lag, so their cars definitely felt faster. The main other one I've driven is a turbo Mx5/Miata, it's my dad's car. And I've driven a R35 GTR on a track, next level! To be honest, the biggest thing that has pulled me to getting another petrol car was driving a 911 around San Francisco, north of the bay. The experience and feedback of that car, even at slower speeds, made me realise that there's so much in the feedback of a manual petrol car. It's not all about all-out speed, which is what I feel the next generation of electric cars might offer. Seeing what has happened to the 90s era car prices, at least here in Australia, I feel like a unique petrol powered car could actual be a decent investment for the future.
