    Picture at top of this page is GREAT for Z35 redesing.
    If they can develop a car with that sporty view
    I’m sure Z35 would get the approval of most fans

      I have owned a couple of Zs in my time, there is already a 350hp engine in the Nismo, I will be damned if I am going to pay $60,000 for the same thing. Nissan needs to understand that America needs a sports car in the $50,000 and in the $25,000 range to soak up all the enthusiasts. They have it covered at the $100,000 range with the GTR. Lets start with the $25,000 range and put in a RWD, 4 cylinder turbo Z, add a lot of goodies to top it off at $30,000 fully loaded. Now, the interesting part is to put a vehicle in between the GTR and baby Z to make it a little exciting. At the $50,000 range Nissan would be smart to make a Z car with one GTR trait. That’s right, I said it. America needs an AWD Z. Slap a manual transmission and an engine that will pull the Z into the sub-4sec. 0-60 time, and I will tell you what, we will have something there. 75% of the United States sees snow, I need to get to work, not drift to work. If you can recall a few years ago, Audi did the same thing with the TT RS (five cylinder, AWD, Turbo, manual tran.4.2sec 0-60 time), but it cost way too much at $64,000. I hear they are coming back out with it in 2017. Toyota is even (from what I hear) are going to make the new Supra at about the $60,000 range. At the moment, there is nothing at the $45-$60,000 range except for the Vette, Mustang GT 350, Challenger, Camaro SS, etc…, but all of them DO NOT have AWD. If Americans are going to spend that much money on a get-away from life car, it needs to be an all-year-round car. Now a days, not many people have a disposable income of $50,000 to spend on an extra car or toy. Nissan, if you build a baby Zilla kind of like the Nismo Z with tech package, AWD, upgraded surround stereo system, and put in an engine that would get about a 3.8sec. 0-60 time, I for one would be very grateful, plus I do believe you would decimate all other sports car sales in that price range, if you have the balls to pull it off….

    I’ve had the privilege of owning more than a dozen Zs and my current Z is a 2016 NISMO coupe. I do like the lines of the (alleged) next generation shown here but at anything north of $50K I don’t think I’d be interested because I expect a heck of a lot more than 350HP at that level of MSRP.

    I don’t know that I would buy something else but I would at least look very seriously at a ‘Vette …most likely I simply wouldn’t buy a replacement for the Z I have; I’d probably just keep it and buy a more luxurious SUV as my daily driver.

    This is one of the ugliest cars I have ever seen, and yes, I saw both the AMC Gremlin and Pacer when it hit the streets. The first image that popped into my mind when I saw that picture was frog. The first thought was that this image must have been accidentally resized smaller horizontally.
