I'm telling you a hybrid system with 400+ horses, probably 430 ish, is it. GTR has 800 on the new model, it's not a sales killer. This will once again put the z in front if the 5.0. Hybrid is the immediate future. Why wouldn't they?

Because they'll have to charge above $45k+ for 400hp, and at that price point, the avg user would probably just buy a Porsche.

Why? With an existing petrol and what they've learned from the LEAF, I don't see it above $32K

Because the base model Z right now is $30. So you're thinking you're gonna get all of that new power for only $2k...?

I hope you're right because I'd get one again, but that's being extremely optimistic with Nissan's pricing history.

Why not? With the years they've had to develop electric systems with existing petrol engines, to stay competitive it has to stay around $32k base.

Nissan doesn't always price things as they should, that's what I'm trying to say... It's not about how much it Should cost, it's about how much they charge...

Yes... but, I don't think any manufacturers are quite ready to put out an affordable hybrid sports car.

The GT-R hybrid will come first -- and it will be at a premium price point.

Thats why I don't pay attention to resale value. Fact of the matter is, any new car will start to depreciate as soon as you drive it home. I just buy what I like and sell it when I'm bored of it lol

yeah but 10k in a year c'mon but no point in trying to make a point, hybrids are really not a good value considering the price, the damage they do to the environment (nobody thinks of the battery), lack of room and performance loss, anyway I'm happy with my Z as is...nice read thou
