Well, my first encounter was with this one today, and it surprised me quite a bit. In person, it is a much more attractive car and has a good elegant balance to it. The metallic paint was very well done, and it seemed quite larger than the A90 even though not by much. The owner was really cool, and we traded stories of our past Z’s (basically all gens), him still owning the 350 and me still having the visor Mr. K signed at Blackhawk during it’s unveiling. His is one of the only two here, and 1 of 240 or so Prototype spec. I can only hope more owners will be like this guy.

I know beauty is subjective, but that is one beautiful Z. I'm a fan.

I think we will see a Nismo version. It's just not going to be the redemption that the Z faithful are praying for.

My guess, slightly better exhaust, 1 to 2 more psi for a modest bump to 430 maybe 450. Different wheels, slightly wider. Slightly more aggressive aero, and stiffer springs. Can't forget about 20 Nismo badges, some red stitching, and a steering wheel stripe. Maybe throw in some optional recaros. Won't really cost them all that much to produce but they will charge a lot more for it thinking 60k.
This is what I'm thinking too. Still interested to see what they do with it but can't imagine it being worth the price of admission. I won't completely write it off until it actually exists but I'm leaning towards a G87 now.
