I've had a few Z's in my time. 1991 turbo and a supercharged track edition 03. I'm getting a huge Mustang vibe from the back? Am I crazy? That's not a good thing. LOL

Not crazy, there are some similarities, but I see the rear of the new Z as a modern interpretation of the Z32. Slightly different angles in this pic, but from the top of the decklid, up, the Z mirrors the GT/370Z more, and what's left is more modern, redesigned 300ZX to me. I really like what they did with the rear on the new Z.

IDK I constantly use the handbrake, so I don't see how i can mimic this with the E-handbrake. Any car i've driven with one, is just really a nuisance.

I absolutely love my handbrake. My M2C will probably be the last car to offer a handbrake.

Nissan Z Proto Scale Model

Can't afford the new Z? This 1/18 display model will only set you back 18,810 or about $170 dollars.

but being honest, id still take it over anything that doesnt come with a manual.

The official release is next month, I wonder how long until it will actually be available to purchase?

Summer of next year?

I don't care if the core of the platform is 370Z.
It looks different and nicer enough. And if the overall performance and handling are solid, at this price point, it's a winner!

Kind of ironic that most enthusiasts pine for older generations, yet Nissan keeps building the same old thing and people cry foul.

I'd buy an E46 wagon with a B58 in a second.
