    • So I haven’t heard anyone go bananas over a 400z. In fact outside of my own research I haven’t heard anything from anyone. But maybe I just have people into different cars

  • No, the new 400Z not enough to save Nissan, especially, in a car market were 2 seat sport cars models aren't selling well, except the new C8, look if Nissan prices it right it won't hurt, but the Japanese tend too overpriced their sports cars, now, Infiniti Nissan + strategy is crazy, what happen to that Infiniti in the early 2000s, with the G35 sedan / coupe and FX, you know why these models sold, price right and RWD based, the Japanese 3 luxury / premium are kind of half a__ it lately

  • The solution to all this, would’ve been Renault buying the stocks of nissan and then letting them do what they were doing, just like when VW bought Porsche and they promised to not interfere with what they were doing (Thank God for that btw) if it’s not broken, don’t fix it. Greed has been the problem here, Nissan’s greed to make or keep more money. And I completely disagree the comment you made at the end is pretty contradicting, if we know Renault has driven nissan’s quality to the ground then the best is for them to divide. Mitsubishi and nissan have become notorious for their dropping reliability through out the years. If it wouldn’t have been for all this my favorite car manufacturer ❤️, Nissan/Datsun would still be next to Honda and Toyota in terms of sales and engineering prowess. This is the reason why they are ultimately trying to remove Gosn.

  • Without Gran Turismo - Nissan would be struggling more than it has. The partnership between Nissan and Polyphony is good with connecting younger generations to the actual production cars. For appealing to future customers. Plus the latest GT game shares news with its affiliated manufacturers. Nissan does have a great Motorsport heritage which means us enthusiasts will always know about them. The Z is popular here in the UK as well as the US and parts of Asia. But in the UK - we have some poor current models. Nissan Note, 1st gen Juke, Pulsar. I remember the classic Micra, Primera and Almería and the Sunny /Bluebird (yeah - that bad boy saloon / sedan) which were good affordable cars. One that you were proud to show. (Compared to the hideous Ford Mondeo and Peugeot 307's ) Nissan do have a good SUV market (which I personally hate) and EV options (talk about Micra EV - using Renault's Twingo as the basis). But Gran Turismo and the classic cars made in the 90's and 2000's was when I got into Nissan's and learnt about the 240Z, 350Z and ofc 370z. Don't forget the GTR (GT3/GT4). Nissan need at least one Hatchback model again in UK / Europe, which can be designed into a saloon /sedan. (Look at Mazda 3 or Toyota Corolla / Auris). The SUV'S are the commoners cars. But the real car buyers, know a good hatchback will always sell. Practicality / Fuel Eco and Good Handling. I love to buy a normal running Nissan again. But nothing other than the Z or GTR makes me look at Nissan. Which is a shame. 🥺

  • There will come a day when automotive manufacturers realize that reliability, when associated with their brand name equates to (cough Toyota)consumer loyalty and sales. Performance and style in a product that is constantly broken (cough Audi, VW, Mercedes, and others) don't bode well for any manufacturer. Then there is product consistency. Chevrolet may not make the most reliable cars on the planet but unlike Ford, which seems to change engine platforms with every vehicle reiteration with the exception of the modular V8, Chevy's LS platform has been developed over the years into something a bit special in the automotive world. Manufacturers should take note and develop their engines instead of constantly introducing new mistakes. A steady platform also means there is a better chance the aftermarket and performance markets can influence, in a positive manner, brand loyalty. Manufacturers should also pay attention to those car enthusiasts that improve their cars and take notes for consideration of the next generation's improvements. The bottom line is when you look at the various lists online based on reliable cars to buy, Nissan is rarely on that list and for several reasons. Nissan needs to improve its reputation. Just fix the plethora of problems their products suffer before introducing new problems and do it far faster than they have in the past. If they could increase the overall reliability of their products, I think they would really stand a chance. They have the designs and they have the performance now fill that last void and it would be possible to unseat Toyota. ---Just my two cents.

I am hoping for a T-top option already the 6speed manual transmission and the twin turbos got my attention. I’m sure there’s going to be lots of after market body kits, lots of motor/ suspension upgrades. Going to be a competition for the BMW/Supra. Hopefully Vin Diesel can use the new Z for the next Fast and Furious 12 or what segment the movie is at.
