The new Nissan Z is finally here, and the 400-horsepower sports car is hitting the market with a reasonable price. The car starts at just $39,990 before a $1,025 destination charge. That’s significantly cheaper than the least expensive Toyota Supra for a car with impressive specs and great style.
The Z gets a 400-horsepower V6 from Infiniti.Nissan
The 2023 Z comes with a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 that makes 400 horsepower. It’s paired with either a six-speed manual or nine-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. That’s the enthusiast’s dream setup, and it’s one of few cars available in the U.S. with a manual gearbox. The body is stiffer and features more reinforcements from prior cars, and the steering system now features electric assistance instead of hydraulics. 18-inch wheels are standard and 19-inchers are available.
When it announced the car, Nissan made a point to talk about its retro-inspired styling and classic proportions. The coupe features a sweeping roofline, a distinct front fascia, and is unmistakeably a Z car, through and through. Inside, the car features a three anlog gauges for a classic look, 12.3-inch configurable digital gauge cluster and a 9-inch touchscreen display. The cabin looks upscale and tech-forward, with deep bucket seats.
