    Although a rumor, isn't Nissan gonna put it's turboed V6 from the infiniti Q60 into it's new Z? Why shouldn't Toyota do the same with its turboed V6 and new Supra?

    Yeah I've written off Nissan a long time ago. The GTR has also somehow nearly doubled in price since when it first came out.

    The 370 is just such a big fuck you to the z32.
    When the twin turbo 300 came out I thought I'd never again be in a faster car. The 350/370 is such a departure from that I'm left wondering if the next Z will be just as gutless and uninspiring.

    I wish Nissan would do the Z with the 400hp VR30DDTT in my Q50-RS. Add a 6spd manual, and I'd probably trade my car in for one.

    Could be, but being that they didn't mind making the Infiniti I don't think they care.

    The GTR is a $100k+ supercar near the end of its generation, and it makes near 600hp AWD.

    I had a 2004 G35 6 speed manual, it was awesome...really enjoyed that car. The GTR is a beast for sure and new there are now getting into a silly price range, used you can early ones for relatively modest dollars but many advising to stay from pre 2011 years...

    yeah, you definitely want a DBA versus the older CBA... they fixed and updated a ton of stuff, and I think part of the reason the later car was/is better is because it literally sold for like $25k more on release.

    the nicest ones are the 2017+ though IMO; that updated front/rear and interior are WAY better.

    They are such huge cars though, with terrible outward visibility. If I was going for big and musclely I'd take a 2018 Mustang GT with the PP2 - much more liveable car for about half the money.

    They refer to it as Godzilla for a reason...
