I've been waiting for a spec sheet like this for a while! Thank you.
Biggest things I see are that the manual transmission has zero changes from the 370z to the new Z, although I don't see anything about what clutch it will be using. I assume the Exedy. Also, the final drive is slightly changed.
The weight from the 370z Sport Manual to the new Z Performance manual shows that we have gained 339 lbs, but with the new torque numbers hanging on from 1,600-5,600rpm we shouldn't notice that the slightest.
Now we just have to wait on an official 0-60mph time.
Sidenote: My elbow and wrist took a beating from a motorcycle accident I had last year. I am currently unable to drive a manual, but I am having surgery next week and they say it should get me within 90% of normal movement. I am still extremely nervous though. I don't know if I'll even want the car if I have to buy an automatic...
I don't think this comes a big shock to any of us, but it's a nice detail, nonetheless, the Z with its TTV-6 will cost less than $2,000 more than the 4-cylinder Supra.
I don't hate the Supra like some, but I'm having a hard time imagining any scenario where the Supra looks like the smart choice. Maybe (fingers crossed) Toyota will adjust pricing along with finally bringing the manual transmission the car is begging for.
Nice work, Nissan!
