A low-volume sports car isn't what "saves" a company. If anything, it hurts the company financially and takes a very long time to recoup the costs of development and production.

Ok, we already know about 95-98% of how the new Z is going to look like, so, what the hell are you guys waiting for to put a new video? Are you going to go to Nissan and do an actual bumper to bumper?

Maybe the REAL scandal is that Renault is not only still a car company, but owns almost half of Nissan. Personally, all my experiences with Renault have been negative. My family even once owned a Renault Alliance. *shudder*

Ehhh all cars theses days look the same and made mostly by the same company who the f cares anymore, no heart and soul into building cars it’s all about money/ profit to cater to all markets of people, not like I’ll ever afford one or want to, I’m happy with a vr commodore with minor modes that’s more reliable then most new cars these days and I treat it like a bag of crap most weekends and drive my ass to wrk Monday with minor up keep. 😂 buying a new car is just a waste in my opinion old cars from the 80-90s seem to still be our living more resent cars 😅

Hey donut, do you think mass producing the vg engine is where Nissan went wrong, while still having the Rb in production, which was in the z before the new engine? And the fact that they were making 2 and 2+2’s of the same car? Think it’s a forward step, not the right one.

The fact that just two years after Nissan took back power from Carlos Ghosn they launch a 400z platform in the spirt of older Nissan designs tells me that these engineers were boiling at the surface just waiting for a green light to get back to form factor and hopefully if they can reinvigorate their whole brand this way to return to producing the cars that mean something to people!

They’re probably not gonna redesign the GTR for a while. It’s very expensive to redesign a car ,so I would assume they just chose to redesign the Z ,because it’s most likely cheaper to redesign ,and it’s available to more people as it is much cheaper. Expect to wait a few years before you see an R36

Without Gran Turismo - Nissan would be struggling more than it has. The partnership between Nissan and Polyphony is good with connecting younger generations to the actual production cars. For appealing to future customers. Plus the latest GT game shares news with its affiliated manufacturers. Nissan does have a great Motorsport heritage which means us enthusiasts will always know about them. The Z is popular here in the UK as well as the US and parts of Asia. But in the UK - we have some poor current models. Nissan Note, 1st gen Juke, Pulsar. I remember the classic Micra, Primera and Almería and the Sunny /Bluebird (yeah - that bad boy saloon / sedan) which were good affordable cars. One that you were proud to show. (Compared to the hideous Ford Mondeo and Peugeot 307's ) Nissan do have a good SUV market (which I personally hate) and EV options (talk about Micra EV - using Renault's Twingo as the basis). But Gran Turismo and the classic cars made in the 90's and 2000's was when I got into Nissan's and learnt about the 240Z, 350Z and ofc 370z. Don't forget the GTR (GT3/GT4). Nissan need at least one Hatchback model again in UK / Europe, which can be designed into a saloon /sedan. (Look at Mazda 3 or Toyota Corolla / Auris). The SUV'S are the commoners cars. But the real car buyers, know a good hatchback will always sell. Practicality / Fuel Eco and Good Handling. I love to buy a normal running Nissan again. But nothing other than the Z or GTR makes me look at Nissan. Which is a shame. 🥺

There will come a day when automotive manufacturers realize that reliability, when associated with their brand name equates to (cough Toyota)consumer loyalty and sales. Performance and style in a product that is constantly broken (cough Audi, VW, Mercedes, and others) don't bode well for any manufacturer. Then there is product consistency. Chevrolet may not make the most reliable cars on the planet but unlike Ford, which seems to change engine platforms with every vehicle reiteration with the exception of the modular V8, Chevy's LS platform has been developed over the years into something a bit special in the automotive world. Manufacturers should take note and develop their engines instead of constantly introducing new mistakes. A steady platform also means there is a better chance the aftermarket and performance markets can influence, in a positive manner, brand loyalty. Manufacturers should also pay attention to those car enthusiasts that improve their cars and take notes for consideration of the next generation's improvements. The bottom line is when you look at the various lists online based on reliable cars to buy, Nissan is rarely on that list and for several reasons. Nissan needs to improve its reputation. Just fix the plethora of problems their products suffer before introducing new problems and do it far faster than they have in the past. If they could increase the overall reliability of their products, I think they would really stand a chance. They have the designs and they have the performance now fill that last void and it would be possible to unseat Toyota. ---Just my two cents.

I’ve watched the Z revealed, and I am very interested on what the production lineup will be. I am hoping for a T-top option already the 6speed manual transmission and the twin turbos got my attention. I’m sure there’s going to be lots of after market body kits, lots of motor/ suspension upgrades. Going to be a competition for the BMW/Supra. Hopefully Vin Diesel can use the new Z for the next Fast and Furious 12 or what segment the movie is at.

The Qashqai was a revelation here in the UK when it came out. Then Nissan partnered with Renault in 2013 & the reliability/public reputation has plummeted through the floor. Nissan sold out to the French - money over reliability/quality.

While ghosn did technically save the company initially, his policies set the company to be one of the least desirable in terms of what they produced. He took business 101 to the extreme, making extremely cheap products for the sake of profits. The complete opposite of Toyota, who makes some of the most reliable, and desirable cars out there. I'm glad that guy finally left Nissan, as I really thought the company was going to go the way of mitsubishi. Here's to a better nissan in the next decade, starting with the new Z.

Over the last 3 years there have been 100s of garbage articles written that all read almost the exact same way. The first one called it the 400z and every other stupid article copied it for years. Nissan is a heritage based brand that holds the formula for z in high esteem and it would be a disgrace to change that in their minds. Nissan has never had a Z they didn't name after liter capacity of the engine. It will 100% have the vr30 tt engine. It will be called the 300z because we've never had one only a 300zx. This car is supposed to be a hard throwback of the 300zx as well for multiple reasons.
