A few more details, good share! Couple of notes: Current dash display still shows 2 boost gauges, I hope the one in the dash is configurable to show other engine info, like a more useful AFR gauge. Another is headroom which is plentiful, I'm not close to 6'5", great!. Also, will there be options for tires besides the Dunlop, e.g. Michelin Sport Cups or Super Sports? Can anybody confirm if those calipers are still the Akebonos or ??

Nissan needs to eliminate the yellow stitching on the top of the dash in the production car, sure it looks purty but you can see even in this video that it creates a nasty reflection on the interior of the windscreen. Living with that all the time would be a giant PITA, I'd be getting out a black permanent marker....

The seat bolstering in the proto looks inadequate for a high performance sports car. Maybe the "real" seats are going to be an added-cost option....

the production cars seem to have Bridgestone Potenzas RE050A like the 370 as that is what appears to be on the test cars.. the production cars are also testing with what may be Brembos because you can spot white lettering on the red caliper. last time I checked thats how brembo is usally written in white on a red caliper. not sure Akebono would have that lettering displayed

The rear tires on the proto has always looked anemic compared to the fronts. Looks more stretched with a lower profile.
I hope it doesn't make it to production that way knowing how picky the vsc is with tire sizes.
