I love it! Great work Nissan. Hopefully it drives great.
B) expected to be near the current car (maybe a bit more) - will release when homologation complete.
How far can they even go with this old FM platform? I know they have made changes here and there but it's still built on 20 year old bones, so it's both newer and older than the mk5 Supra at the same time😂.Wow technically a refresh. This is similar to Ferrari and Lexus with sime
I might be in the minority, but I don't think the Supra interior is that nice. Yes it's BMW, but it's pretty bare-bones BMW and no thrills. It also only comes in black.There’s no denying the fact for the rumored 40k base cost this undercuts the 4 cylinder and 6 cylinder Supra. Now I’m sure the BMW interior will be way better than the Z but will people care?
I am sure they will co-exist and it’s beyond exciting to think of the upcoming comparisons!!
Seems like Toyota and Subaru put more effort to improve the 86/BRZ's chassis, which already handles better than the 370Z, than Nissan did to the new Z's chassis. On Nissan's website, all they really focus on talking about is the powertrain and the styling, and they just sort of gloss over all the other details of the new Z.
Tamura tells us the chassis was strengthened extensively to deal with the increased power and torque. The geometry of the front double wishbone suspension was reworked, and the Z now has electric power steering and wider front tires.
Different strokes for different folks I suppose, but the Z is definitely more organic and understated in a good way. It has details where they matter and simple but beautiful lines along the side and hood.
One of my issues with the Supra has been that the translation from the FT-1 concept to a much smaller production car created some odd curves, shapes and detailing. To my eyes, the Supra is slightly overstyled and a bit tacky with fake vents.
I personally prefer the smoother, more understated Z and think it will age much better over time.
