They could perhaps keep the 3.7 as the base engine and price it where the 370z is now. Then leave the $40k+ market to the twin turbo models.
I don’t get the impression that Nissan is updating the platform. It’s still going to be a FM car.
Most of the components for the Z were stolen from Infiniti products. The 400z is looking like it’s going to be a smaller (possibly two-seater) version of the Infiniti Q60. In fact, I’d be surprised if the 400z is really all that different from the 370z beyond the body and engine.
Uhh, that’s the joke...
The wonderful thing about old Hondas is they used understeer to guide you back the appropriate speed for a corner.
This seems like the perfect candidate for a nice, torquey, turbo four. Maybe that KR20 with the variable compression?
This picture reinforces my opinion. Long hood, short ass.
