Hi all, I thought I'd sign up and say hello.

I started my Z journey with a 2004 350Z, and then replaced that with a 2009 370Z. I also have a 1971 240Z which I got 3 years ago.

It's about time, but it's great to see Nissan showing some signs of releasing a new Z car. I hope it makes it to the UK...

Welcome. I'd bet on the new Z reaching the UK, given the strong sports car sales there, so I'd say it's a matter of time before you can buy a new one.

Here's a question though. Will RHD models be released first, given that the home market in Japan is RHD? Or will Nissan roll-out the LHD models first to the larger China and US markets?

US and Canada may be given priority due to the fact that US still buys 150 Zeds roughly per month. UK is the saving grace of EU. Stronger economy and lots of sports cars on the roads

The 350Z and 370Z were released in the US before the UK. I think the timing was closer with the 370Z though.

Well, if Nissan are bringing out 12 new models in the next 18 months and one of those is the new Z, we won't have too long to wait. Of course, we have waited long enough already!

Thanks to Alfonso Albaisa he really fought for it. I hope they can move 10,000+ by 2022 then I think it will be somewhat successful. I was like 15 when the 350z came out.

That did Mustang numbers in US alone. 36,000+ I think first year. Then 370 with 10,000+i think

Glad to have you on the forum @Paul_S! I don't see why Nissan wouldn't bring it to the UK. I'm sure it will fit right at home next to your 370Z and 240Z.

Yep, that and numbers. It's not a big RHD market and Nissan feel the need to change the spec from the JDM cars. I know there's a certain amount of homologation to be done but I think they could save some money by keeping the rest the same.

That would be a good way for them to keep costs down. I wouldn't be too worried, if they offer the 370Z they should do the same with the 400Z.
