NEW YORK – Nissan revealed the all-new 2023 Z sports car in a global broadcast from Brooklyn’s Duggal Greenhouse, about five miles from where the original 1970 Datsun 240Z made its world debut in October 1969.

"When we introduced the Z in 1969, the Z was a revolution. Since then, for more than 50 years, Nissan has brought style, speed, reliability and so much more to millions of enthusiasts around the world,” said Ashwani Gupta, representative executive officer and chief operating officer, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd.

While the six previous generations of Nissan’s iconic sports car all offered numeric designations, the long-awaited redesign will be known in the United States simply by just one letter – Z.

The 2023 Z offers a sleek, attractive exterior with a silhouette that shows respect for the original model – with a long hood and low rear stance. Inside, the driver-centric cockpit includes a 12.3-inch customizable racing-inspired meter display, available leather-appointed sports seats and 8-speaker Bose® audio system.

All 2023 Nissan Z models are equipped with a 400-horsepower 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo engine and choice of 6-speed manual transmission with motorsports-inspired EXEDY® high-performance clutch, or a new 9-speed automatic transmission with aluminum paddle shifters.

"The Z has always been an accessible sports car – always placed at the intersection of aspiration and attainability – of dreams and reality. This latest iteration is now ready to thrill Z enthusiasts, and create a whole new generation of Z fans as well, when it comes to market here in the U.S. early next year,” said Gupta.

The 2023 Z is offered in Sport and Performance grade levels and a special "Proto Spec” edition, which is limited to 240 units.

Very concerned with the "performance" trim pricing. If it nudges, let alone sneaks into the $50k price range it puts it up against different class of interiors, fit and finish. Not to mention the inevitable dealer ADM gouging. Performance should clock in around $45k. Nissan fit and finish and $50k doesn't work for me unless it's a halo car like a GT-R.

$47k + destination + inevitable stealerships mark up puts it dangerously close to or at Supra, which will be faster, and has a better interior and finish.

I hope someone at Nissan is paying close attention to this.

I have to get at least the Performance, if not later Nismo. But agree with most, because that Performance basically has everything (except Proto options) it would nudge near $50K and that's before any dealer greediness. The Nismo will approach $60K. At those prices, it's no longer a performance bargain, lots more competition.

I kind of like how there aren't like a bunch of options like technology packages. It's either. Sport or performance. But I'm assuming most of us will be going for the performance

Am I hearing this on a standard sport model? Exedy clutch, CF drive shaft, Launch control, rev-match? I also heard them saying the car's behavior can change at the flip of a switch. Ray's Engineering forged wheel. The brakes are a 4+2 Akebono system. I would be surprised if this car hits $50k, or more, for the performance model. I've got to save up even more money for 2022 and hopefully the dealer gouging isn't an issue.

It seems the performance model have Bose system (which I'm not settling for anything other than Bose), mech LSD and an upgraded muffler? The LSD and Bose system themselves are worth the upgrade to performance.

However, the question still begs; do you get all the above items PLUS the performance package? OR do you lose something and gain the performance model?

from the spec sheet it looks like performance you get all the sport stuff plus the upgrades like the 9" screen vs the 8" ect
