great video, good takes on every generation, being a Z31 owner I loved the super clean Anniversary edition that made the roll along with the 280ZX anniversary. Nissan has for sure made themselves relevant again and I will be interested to see all the rags do their bake-offs with the Supra. Seems like although Nissan has the HP advantage the Supra is going to be a little faster, but the price difference is pretty significant.

Absolutely amazing, can't wait to see it out on the road. It is definitely worth the wait.

yea, I'm not digging those braces. I already hate the front fascia style on the newer 370z. I can live with the mustang rear end.
Body kit companies are going to make a lot of money.

At least it's built on the Z34 chassis so all the suspension mods should be direct bolt-ons

I like the styling at least from the pictures, things will always be different when you see them in person. For the price point I don't see anything that will get into the Z's way, for 45k you can get a fully loaded 400 HP car with a proper 6 speed. Supra is 60k at the 6 cylinder trim level with no 6 speed, Toyota 86/Subura is like 240 HP so not even in the converstation and IMHO not nearly as good looking. So your left with Camaro/Mustang/Dodge offerings after that to compare, driven an American manual anytime lately?

I think this is a great offering will be interesting to see how many they sell.
