Pretty sure everyone expected this Z to cost more then the 370z, there wasn't any doubt there.Welcome to 2022. Gone are the days of cheap vehicles people. When a $200,000 house is now $650,000. A $40,000 car is now $60,000. It's not the 90's anymore. Inflation's a bitch, aint it ?
A 370z Nismo MSRP was like $48k so the Performance trim being $51-53k I would say is a bit surprising.
But regardless the inflation stuff doesn't justify how it compares to the competition, price and performance wise?
