You absolutely make a point, which is why I would at least get a more exclusive trim.

Go to a Nashville Cars and Coffee, and there are just as many C7 Z06s as there are Altimas up there.

This is one of the reasons I got a Z.

Not enough people are buying them because Nissan did not evolve the car with an increasingly competitive market.

People kept getting better and better options (in their opinion) and the Z would change damn near nothing.

It's not that people weren't buying, it's that Nissan wasn't paying attention to their target audiences wants while other car companies slid in and took over. Nissan essentially abandoned the Z. Don't blame the people for this.

No one ever buys an Evo. It's a niche car. My point is that you guys were losing your **** over DCTs when the Evo already did it in 2008 for under 40k. I have to listen to every Nissan business executive here tell me how it's not possible fiscally.

**** interior or not, the Evo has incredible Recaro seats, 2 piece Brembo brakes, MacPherson Struts, a torque vectoring AWD system, and a DCT all for under 40k. Which is still my point. Yeah the car doesn't weigh 3100lbs but it's a 4 door economy car with AWD lol.

You guys are making some strange excuses for why Nissan can't, or excuse me, won't improve this car.

I would love to see what you bean counters on here actually believe is possible.

Care to give me your best generalization as to why you think that is?
Sure "chief":

- It has a design that is somewhat childish and lacks appeal beyond a certain demographic.

- It's based on a lancer and unless you're a car nerd it's viewed as one.

- Said crappy interior. The design is nice and simple, but there's hard plastic everywhere. MR is way better than the GSR. I was shocked by how appalling the GSR interior is.

- Same issue as the Z in so far as it started getting left behind in performance capabilities (stock form of course) and the market place for fun sporty cars became a lot more competitive. Mitsu, like Nissan, essentially abandoned the car and didn't iterate to keep up, leaving people to go elsewhere.

I'm fairly certain the reason it didn't sell well is NOT because it had things like brembos, recaros, DCTs, etc.

How about turbocharging the new miata? Even fully built. It would be under 2700lbs! N probably 400rwhp

2018 BMW M4 Facelift spotted, to be unveiled in March


The last few bimmer came out in 2007. Our cars in 2009. The bimmer was redesigned in 2014. We look pretty much the same. In 2017. The new gen M4 is already being refreshed. Still no Z. I can't believe cars are on double rotation and Nissan doesn't have the courtesy of saying.... No we're not making a Z. I might get that Supra as a coupe. Praying it's more analog than digital like the 86 but with more power. I'm just gonna follow the Supra.

Well they do care about the customers, it's just that the Z is a very small portion of their customer base.

Same here

Just for kicks, I used Nissan's Live chat on thier website and asked about any plans or news on the next gen Z, and they responded with no info or news and recommened me to look at the 2017 model..
With this type of info I don't expect seeing a new Z for 2018 or any other year any time soon.

I'm guessing Nissan is expecting us to turn to Infinity for future performace cars. Which I'm not going to cough up extra $$$ just for a different Nissan Motors badge.

On top of that we all these new turbo engines and manufactures like Kia and Hyundai coming out with cheap cars that can either outperform the Z or at lease come close, maybe it's just me, but that crap really gets under my skin and drives me nuts. Meanwhile Nissan is just sitting around with thier thumbs up thier .....

I miss the 550 my cousin had a few years ago. All black on black on black. Looked good.

M4 is already getting a facelift for 2018
