It is a bad thing. It’s reliable and the aftermarket and enthusiasts are plenty. Why pay $30k if you can pay $15-25k for a used and already modded example. A G37S is a much nicer car inside and is just as cheap, and the Q60 has terrible depreciation and makes easy power for cheap, so literally no reason to get a new Z, Read more

I can see following trends but keeping a toe in a still large segment isn’t a bad idea, especially if you are a large and diverse company, you can have a lower margin or loss leader offering to keep a base covered.

There’s talks of Mazda’s and Toyota’s ties deepening so theoretically Mazda’s new line of inline-6 engines could make its way across Toyota’s and Lexus’s RWD lineup as well. That way Mazda could actually make a return on the investment in R&D that their spending in developing these powertrains.
