Hi All,

Just joined the forum after watching pretty much every video available. Never been a Z car enthusiast really, but have some fond memories as a kid of playing in the cockpit of my Dad's Datsun 240z. That said, I absolutely LOVE how the new Z is looking. This thing is looking like a home run and I can't wait to see how it shapes up as we move towards production.

Cheers.

Welcome to the forum @Kidon! What's your favorite part of the Z so far?
The exteriror styling in my opinion is just spot on. The rear end was the first thing that attracted me with the slight retro rear end with the wide black panel and the headlights. The more I look at it though I'm really digging the front end and the wide open grill. From most articles and videos, the grill appears to be the most controversial element, but it's actually spot on to me. Especially after going back and relooking at the 240 and 260, big wide opening just without the steel bumper.

Another note on the rear, the way it slopes down under the rear window seems very Porsche-esque to me, but its just lovely. The styling overall is just super. One of my criticisms overall of Japanese cars, and more often recently is "over-styling". the Z proto is just CLEAN and gorgeous. Crisp lines, beautiful proportions, and styling aspects that don't look like someone designed it with the trapezoid tool in Photoshop.

Also can't believe they are actually going to offer a 6-speed. Very cool. The idea of a "pure", affordable sports car is very appealing.

The front grille is definitely the most polarizing part of the car. I think it grows on you the more you see it. Plus it should allow customizers to get creative with it. You can tell with this car that Nissan listened to what people like us wanted in a new Z.
