400Z

Postby Desert Rat » Tue Mar 20, 2018 10:31 am

Stupid name. If the article is true, it should be a 300Z. I'll believe it when I see it. Will probably be another Infiniti knockoff. If they do replace the current model, I hope it has a manual, else they'll lose what respect remains for the Z lineup.

In my experience carthrottle is usually pretty far off base, plus why the hell would Nissan release an AWD Z car to compete with it's flagship? The naming convention isn't a point of contention for me.

Yep. Carthrottle is a spammy, clickbait site that pulls nonsense out of their a$$.

Carthrottle is equivalent to that of CR in the United States. So, either way, both are horrible to depend and rely on for information. The 400Z name sounds about right, since the numbers for the Z always increased for some reason per generation.

No it doesn't.

The number designation was in line with the displacement of the engines within the cars. A 400Z designation would only be correct if they stepped up to a 4.0L motor if they wanted to keep the number in line with the history of the car (a wise decision).

There's a nissan ad on youtube with the new Z and it doesn't look like that yellow concept posted above. I don't care for the headlights on it. You all know nissan changed their naming convention so the speculation right now if that it's ca;;ed the 400Z because it'll be 400 HP for the base and maybe 455 HP for the nismo.

It's not great, its not bad, better than the 33 and 34 (obviously IMO). As RicerX said it would be really stupid on Nissan's part to step away from a naming convention which is seeded in heritage.
