Much cleaner and less fussy design than the Supra.
Lots of Porsche 991/992 in the side and rear views.Will be interested to see the dimensions.

When you drive a "Z" the destination is moot

Interesting lack of response from members.
I expected there would be a flurry of responses ,of all varieties.
Does that mean people are underwhelmed or just busy with other things ?

Just watched the promo, I think that they presented it really well. I like the look, and understand the sort of complexities they must have had to work through to get something together that not only reflected the 240 but was also modern. I love the passion that these guys showed in the presentation.

The addition of a manual when so many are going away from it is exciting, I have always believed that although computers can perform better and faster from us. it's about the experience, removing the manual gearchange and replacing with flappy paddles is okay but you can,t beat being able to select your own gear, to wring the motor out when an auto would have changed up because it's more efficient.

Look forward to seeing this car in person. Unfortunately, I don't think I will ever own one but I just love the Z family cars.

This is bad. I'm starting to really like it though realistically have no use for 400bhp of ICE or a clutch.

My 350z (VQ35HR) is still going really well.
