Yikes, it seems like various outlets are actually paying attention to/referencing the forumSomeone already sniped this post.
In the Infiniti the engine generates 400 horsepower, but a new leak might have revealed that the Nissan 400Z will have even more power.www.thetorquereport.com
This is what my research has revealed, as well, which is very encouraging. I hope that Nissan is not only able to extract substantial power from the engine in this application but that they are able to give it a very unique feel, a distinctly Z character that rivals (read: Supra) lack.Automotive pundits generally dislike the driving dynamics of the Q50 and Q60. However, they always heap tons of praise onto the VR30 motor, saying that it makes very impressive power
They're getting the wrong message...So does this mean the production 400Z, when it arrives, will pack a power-to-weight ratio that embarrasses the six-cylinder Cayman, the rip-snorting M4 and lots of other performance machines? The NewNissanZ forum fans sure think so. At Road & Track, we're slightly skeptical. It's highly likely that Nissan gave these numbers to the Project Cars team as a way to build hype for the eventual debut of the production car. Note that the car you can play in the game is called "Z Proto," a pretty clear indication that what you see on your screen is the digital representation of the concept car. That gives Nissan an easy out if the 400Z arrives with less horsepower (or a greater curb weight) than what's in the game: "hey, that's just the prototype."
Exactly. Now that basically every automotive publication has referenced the forum as the genesis of this story, it'd be nice if they acknowledged the prevailing skepticism that we very evidently seem to collectively hold.

The Grand Tour Nation one even paraphrases a comment I made. I would say that we need to be cautious about our posts, but is it really our fault if automotive publications are referencing us?? I think everyone is just starved for any news on this vehicle, no matter how speculative.
