It's quite the contrast to the yellow but this looks really good on the Z. It lets the wheels stand out a bit more.

Battleship Grey does well at bringing the whole design together and not allowing certain things stand out more than others, ex. the grille. I'm a fan!

That's a great universal 'safe' choice for most people, makes the Z a bunch more aggressive looking than that yellow Proto. Brings out the body lines, creases and features more. I do hope Daytona Blue will be a color choice with anthracite or gun metal wheels!

Very nice.
If Nissan doesn’t come to the table with a date in the next three months I’m going to go for a slightly used Cayman GT4 and never look back.

The lower element is more open, most likely for the intercooler of the TT.

Doesn't the VR30DDTT use twin water-to-air intercoolers mounted near the throttle bodies (top-mounted)?

A lot of the mechanicals are still guesswork at this time. I just hope Nissan addresses many cooling issues from the past (brakes, transmission, etc.)

Here's a color I could also live with on the new Z - Root beer gorgeous!

That particular motor does. But has a undersized heat exchanger for the intercoolers. Even if they improve on this it usually isn’t big enough or efficient for extra spirited driving.

The grill is exactly the same. It looks more pronounced because it seems the color there is more of a grayish.

Unlike most, I don't mind the size or shape of the grill opening. I don't however like the innards of it. Too much going on.

Right, I was just operating with the prevailing assumption that this is the engine most likely to be employed in the Z. Have there been widespread reports of overheating with the 400hp tune? I'd read that the cooling systems had been purposefully upgraded in the Red Sport applications to specifically counter that scenario.

Let's hope all potential cooling issues have been addressed. Last thing we need is a new Z that goes to limp mode too soo on track, like some BMWs do.
