Who is responsible for the front end?? Look at it straight on. Someone designed it and then someone said “that looks great, let’s make THAT!” :doh:

I think you really summed up in words what has been bugging me about the front. Side and rear are fine, but it really does look like the front is an EV. I didn’t love the Supra pictures either when I first saw it, so it may look better in person. But it just screams boring.

A sporty, low slung and sleek shaped vehicle looks massively odd with a rectangle grille. Rectangle grilles work well with boxy styled vehicles like a Challenger or a box Chevy. The GR86 front grille has sleeker edges around it despite the grille having an almost rectangle shape. I think the aftermarket will create 5 to 7 front bumpers for the Z because that's the worst part of it stylistically and to a degree the headlights have a funny looking oval shape that sadly can't be changed by the aftermarket.

There is zero 'heritage' in that front end. Zero. Its clinical at best. Boring as you state!

Z = BORING! Not sure what i's trying to be. Not much retro, nothing new/exotic...Looks like they gave someone a hammer and saw and said build a car!

I do love those bronze wheels! My main complaint with the Supra is the stock wheels, which is why I went with an A91.

So I just briefly checked out the NissanZ sister forum... my god are they obsessed with the Supra. Basically every thread i've checked, theres someone trying to compare it to a Supra or throwing a jab at the Supra.
Exactly! They talk about the Supra non stop. About how horrible it is because it’s not a manual and has fake vents.. like do they not know their gtr (actually good version of their cars) only comes paddles with fake vents? LOL
In all fairness, the two of you should read the whole Proto thread. ?

I like the fact that there is a new Z. It dont want to see such cars die. So its a great move of Nissan.

But just for the visual comparison I would say a fair competitor is the GR86, than the Supra. For me its a visual GR86 competitor with comparable power level to the Supra. So its something between... it would match the pricetag of the Z if I remember correct.

Thanks for putting this together. It provides data to back up a point that doesn't have to be made to many Supra owners, or curve lovers, alike.

The only YouTuber I've seen so far that got it right, is Matt Maran Motoring. He actually uses common sense rather than posting clickbait nonsense.

So I find these figures interesting. Now a 370z Nismo is not a 2023 Z but the Z comes with a more heavier motor. The 370Z has a heavier front end than a 3.0 Supra and way more heavier than the 2.0 along with a worse F/R balance. I believe the Supra will not only be quicker but it'll out handle the new Z unless there's some trick up it's sleeve tbh.

Also it's cool to see the difference in the 2.0 and 3.0 weight removal on both ends of the chassis. A nice 110 lbs less on the front. And 204lbs lighter on the front than the 3.7 Nismo manual.

I am curious why people seem to sometimes prefer this spot - isn't it harder to actually look at the navigation the farther down it is from the windshield? Feels like you're taking your eyes off the road more.

Regardless, I really wish the HUD in the Supra worked with navigation via CarPlay like newer BMWs have. Sadly seems to be a iDrive version thing and isn't something you can fix with coding.

I find it really odd as well. If anything you would think people would want something like Audi does with its virtual cockpit or extra HUD visualization.
