I really hope that Nissan doesn't all of a sudden jack up the price for this new car.

The current 370Z starts at $31,015 and that's a really good price for the performance that you get.

Car and Driver seems to think that the Z will start somewhere in the $40,000 range, which would suck. But at least it still would undercut the Supra by thousands lol.

How much does everyone else expect the new Z to be. My guess is that it's going to be around $42,000.

I feel it depends on how much it’s going to be revised. Obviously the motor and panels. But is the chassis going to be the same? With more power will we see bigger brakes? Hope so. Better LSD than before? Your price point is nice as long as there are improvements beyond just the motor.

I would expect there to be more improvements beyond the panles and motor since it's a new car. But that's just my opinion and not based on anything lol. Hopefully the Coronavirus outbreak doesn't affect the project too much.

I agree. Just curious with the spy shots they had at the Nurburgring and the testing that was going on with that 370Z chassis or it it might of just been a new car with old panels.
I’d like to see a completely reformed car. Wider, underslung, good LSD, and better brakes.

I think they just used the 370Z body to try and hide what's going on underneath. Or maybe they haven't finished the body design yet.

I really hope that we get some reasonable Canadian pricing here as well. We are like a secondary sub-market for Nissan NA. I bought my Xterra Pro-4X in 2015 at a very reasonable price before it was completely discontinued. I'm going to most likely purchase a 370Z Nismo this year as I just love the Z and I want a coupe to go with my '05 Z roadster. The base model 370Z's can be purchased here now for mid-twenties in CA dollars which make them a great deal.

Wow that is a really good deal, it would be cool if you had both cars in your garage. Any idea on when you'd get it?

Given the TT setup alone, I’d think the car will be at least in the mid 40k range to start with. Unless they make a NA version to compete with the 4cyl Zupra in the mid 30s

I just don’t know yet. I’d like to think it won’t be that high for base model. Yet we don’t know what models to be. But it’s very possible. If they include the GTR brakes on that car and a good LSD I’d be game $45/50K. For what I plan to do, most likely I’m gonna change out parts anyway. BBK and LSD are the most important for me. The only mistake I made on my last car was I did get a base model for track purpose and I wish I would’ve got a sport model because the rev match feature. If that comes standard on a base model I’ll probably end up with a base. And then we don’t really know what Nissan has planned and how much improvement they plan to make. I personally would love to see the car come in at 38K.

So one thing should be certain, it needs to be cheaper than a Red Sport. The Q50 RS starts at ~$55k.

So subtract some overall luxury, and hopefully subtract a lot of money in development fees (since there is lots of reuse).

I think that $45k isn’t far off.
Truthfully I think the base model needs to be in the 30s. That undercuts the Supra for a few grand. Price the Nismo in at 50 or just under and you’ve undercut the Supra everywhere.

I'd like to see a bigger difference between the Nismo edition and the Sport or Base model, particularly in performance increase. Rumors have suggested it may happen, but a different engine in the Nismo would be a welcome option, and worth paying more that $55K (for me), depending on specifics.

I don’t disagree. A tuned or overhauled version of the V6 pumping the 450-500 (to fight Supra’s 500 speculative engine) would make sense.
