$60K for next new Z35?

What house only costs $100k and who's going to install a TT kit and oil cooler for free? Also, please don't tell me you're not going to at least upgrade

I think someone needs to check his math.

My house cost $100,000 new construction, but I added a patio and crap so it was more... Install for free, good luck.

The current Z with 337 HP has plenty of get up and go. It would be retarded to go to a smaller displacement engine and add the complexity of twin turbos.
I don't know if it is possible with the basic engine block now to increase the bore & stroke (especially the stroke to give some more low end torque) but if they could get 375-380 HP out of a normally aspirated engine and increase the torque it would be a great sports car made even greater. A few minor tweaks to the interior like adding some Dynamat equivalent to deaden the road noise and restyle stupid gas and temp gauges and there would be no need for a large price increase. Oh, and stay away from DI systems too. They still need development.
The 20 something motorheads who think they need 500 HP can buy a Mustang, Camaro, 'Vette or Challenger and cry when it falls apart, gets recalled, or is in the shop with problems that shouldn't be happening from manufacturers that have been building cars for a century.

This isn't 2008, MOST the performance cars on the market are turbo or going turbo. That drives demand down making turbocharging more affordable. Worst case scenario... The Z will start at 39k as a TT. The smart year one price though would be mid 30's.
yea... maybe if it had the exact same engine and output of, if i recall correctly, 329 HP, which is less than the current NA V6 the Z has. If Nissan chooses to put output closer to 400, I don't think it's start anywhere in the 30s, in which case, a fully loaded Z can easily surpass the 50,000 mark.

I know the 1990 + Supra Turbos had MSRPs of $65,000 back then. i don't recall the price for the 300ZX TT but the NAs were priced at $40,000 MSRP which caused their downfall. Now fast forward 20 plus years later, Is $65K too much for a turbo'd Z?

Put it like this bruh. The Z name isn't ready for pricing over $50k. People thought the Z was borderline expensive with a base price of $29,990 in 09'. When the Z hit $32,000 MSRP people went crazy and sales plummeted by 50%. The Z just wont appeal in the Porsche/Vette segment, even if it's just as good. That's like if next year, the genesis coupe is the same price as an infiniti or if the infiniti is the same price as the bimmer. They will lose sales. Even if they completely go upmarket by every sense of the word. It will alienate the current Z market and CONVERTING Porsche, BMW buyers will prove difficult in DOWNGRADING to the NISSAN name.
The Z needs to do 2 things

1. Attract younger buyers... Hence a lower base MSRP in the 2.0
2. Bring back its orignal buyers to the brand... Hence the need for 3.0TT

The 350z enjoyed an average of 22,000 car sales annually vs our current 5,000. Where did the other 17,000 Z enthusiasts go? Into mustangs and other comparably priced sports cars with more power. the Z has to be at V8 muscle car entry price to succeed. Look at the ford mustang GT/PP pricing ($35,620 for 2015) and I show you the future in Z35 BASE pricing ESTIMATE... End of story.

The Z is the muscle car alternative. A budget porsche... It just needs more power, 21st century features and standards with a true global design to compete. Going upscale will cause a second death for the Z. Unless the top range price is $60k with exaggerated performance specs and features. It wont be a start sale at$60k.

A little odd yes, but all the other window stickers i found were no where near the 65k that was claimed as the selling price of a supra turbo back in the 90's...most expensive i saw which had a leather package on it was i believe around 52k

Just for comparison sake i found the window sticker for a 1990 300zx turbo
