thats stillens rally GTR from 2009The Z logo on the brake caliper is a great touch. Hopefully that carries over to the production model. Anyone else notice how quiet it was when it was moving out of the building?
Also, shout out to that beatiful orange GT-R lurking in the background.
Fortunately those glossy parts should be easy enough to remove.I really wish the steering wheel didn't have any gloss black. They should've just made it the gunmetal material on the bottom y-part. Gloss black looks like crap once the scratches appear.
That's a $5k jump over what a base 370Z goes for in 2021. If true, its still not bad for what we're getting. It also slots well between the 86/BRZ and Supra. So although a big increase from the current Z generation, it sort of works.Also of note: he mentions that he believes the starting price to be circa $35,000 - which would be very aggressive - and I do wonder where that is coming from. I've been saying from jump street that if Nissan can keep this, at least in lower-spec models, under $40K, it will a) be somewhat miraculous, and b) a massive shot across the bow at the frankly overpriced Supra.
I am hopeful but dubious
I completely agree. It's just that the "general consensus" has been that this vehicle will be priced in the $40k-$50k range, which I believe to be a mistake in terms of market positioning.That's a $5k jump over what a base 370Z goes for in 2021.

Oh, I agree, I think it will likely start around $40K, but it seems to me that's basically Nissan intentionally pricing it there rather than it having that baseline as a matter of financial necessity. It's definitely not impossible for the 400HP Z to cost less than that since they are working with mostly existing Nissan components, as they have historically done.The 400hp Q50 goes for $55,750, so a 400hp Z within the $40k range sure seems more like it.
