The ALL NEW 400Z is highly anticipated by enthusiasts around the world and we are all hoping Nissan will deliver. The exterior of the new Z features plenty of styling clues taken for the 240Z, 280Z, and 300ZX. On the outside you will find 19in wheels, and massive rotors and calipers. On the inside you will be greeted by the tri-gauge pod on top of the dash, and all new infotainment system and 12.3in digital gauge cluster. Under the hood enthusiasts are hoping for a 3.0L twin-turbo V6, but the great news is there is still the availability of the manual transmission. Is the NEW 2022 Nissan 400Z going to be worth the price?

Nissan was just trying to give me a lease on a 2021 frontier priced at 33k , if this is mid 30s I guess I’m going to have to find a beater family car lol

Best z was the 300zx twin turbo with the best engine bay . The front needs to be more slanted down, rear boot should have been like the Aston Martin spoilery look.

Not to be this way but couple of bullet points that kills this car • 6cyl motor is out twin turbo or not it’s done • 400z means 400hp that’s 10-11years too late Mustang Camaro and many others had base 400hp 10-11 years ago • The car is basically a 2021 350z with 100hp more which is kind of like mmmm decade later and this is all?? • Here is a list of what the Z car should’ve been to be even close to anything meaningful - name should’ve been 560Z - 5.6L V8 that’s in the Nissan titan - Car should’ve came with 560hp - car should be little bigger - styling should be less round more edgy This car is not out yet but it’s already outclassed by cars 10-11 years old what a disappointment

I'm glad to see that the Z line continues, but I still prefer the 370 Z sport touring😗 and the 370 Z Nismo🤤. The new 400 Z is okay 😐. I'm just not really impressed by the 400Z. No disrespect.

They missed the mark with the styling. Thank god people will throw a nice body kit on this thing to put it near its potential. Specifically the front end, bumper (obviously)

I feel like the headlights make the car look more on the cute side than aggressive compared with the 350/370z. Hell, the ND miata headlights looks more aggressive.

The new supra is trash compared to this. Toyota betrayed its legacy and fan base by allowing BMW to build their supra.
Carboy Dorifuto party
@a skor hows it selling terribly? The car itself isn't a volume seller like toyos Camrys and etc so they're not built in large numbers as is anyway and is even outselling their own homemade coupes since. None of their engines can make power as easy as the i6 in the mk5 even if it's made by bmw. Compared to really any modern toyo engine it is alot easier and alot cheaper to mod and make power out of a mk5 than it is with a modern toyo V6 or V8 reliably. Plenty of mk5s going around with way more power than stock easily being dailied or taken back to back to the strip have shown they can take a beating with not much of any issue. Even then it's pretty clear the made a good move teaming up with BMW since people rarely ever beat any of their other rwd platforms like they're currently doing with the mk5s(other than the 86s)

@Carboy Dorifuto party A few holes in your response... Supra is not selling well, sales numbers are terrible. BMW engines are crap--fact of life. The "quicker" comment is subjective because you're comparing a new gen engine/performance to that of something in 1990s. Even then, a last gen supra puts out near same performance as this newest one. Betrayal to legacy? You cant take a Toyota icon and put a BMW engine in it. Toyota has MORE than enough on shelf parts to build their own sports car. A Toyota engine, no matter which, would have been more reliable and likely more "open to mods" as you say.
Carboy Dorifuto party
How so? It's quicker,easier to mod,faster,handles better, cheaper by 10-15k compared to its last gen new,and is about to outsell its last gen. How's it a bad car when its clearly doing well? And whats this legacy exactly when people rarely ever talk about any other gen than just the mk4 alone even tho it sold the worst out of any of the older gens and even got yanked out of markets before it ended production?

The only problem I have with this 400Z is the headlight design and tail lights! The Z has to stand on its own, and look distinctive from other sports cars , which it has. But now - Will people not look at this new car and think is this like a new Tesla? from the front headlights. Or is this the new looking lMustang? from the rear tail lights. I love the Z. I have 17 yr. old 350z and the original owner. And saw the concept Z , that have the 370z body with the I infinity Q60 twin turbo Engine. I thought that would the 400z , now seeing this car - I’m not a fan of it! Sorry

I am blown away. Truly if the price point makes sense it's going to be tough not to buy one. Can't even compare this to the BMA or I mean Toyota Supra. I've owned Toyota since 1971. But when it comes to the Supra... What a sell out. This Z is amazing.......... Thanks

The new Supra isn't on anyone's radar. I've never even seen one on the road. Or maybe I have and thought it was a Corolla.

They're not being made in Corolla numbers so they're aren't that many on the roads.

I hope the 400Z platform will be shared with Mitsubishi to make a FWD alternative under the Eclipse badge. Similar could be said with a GT-R being a 2 door Evo. I'm glad Nissan is coming out of it's shell with this! I'm hoping that at least we get some new non-Crossover BS from Mitsu but who knows..

I love the retro modern design. They have taken a lot of cues from the 240Z with the overall shape and tail lights. Love the interior design but the best thing is, turbo's are back! Finally!
RastaD 4 days ago
it may have been said already, but I think Fairlady is ready for primetime in America. The Bronco is ready to relaunch to the moon. We are tired of spreadsheet cars. While I may be shooting myself in the foot as a desirable buyer, I think the "Fairlady Z", along with a smart campaign, could recapture something America is wanting right now. But heck, give me a 400Z at $35000, and you already have a customer.
