@Davey I agree with everything you said, yes that's what I meant too. That's why I keep saying the Mustang and the Z are not in competition at all. They deliver a completely different driving feel and if you are looking for one, you will hate the other. The car I was cross-shopping my Z with was a pre-owned M3. The tight steering, handling and the high-revving engine felt quite similar. The M was about twice the price though (and I wouldn't buy one without an extended warranty) so the Z won.

If Subie offered a BRZ STI (keeps getting 'rumored' but I doubt its ever showing up) or Mazda offered a Mazdaspeed Miata with a turbo (which used to exist) then those are cars I would cross-shop with a Z. For now, the closest thing (in feel) is a BMW M235i and that starts at $55K.
The mustang and Z are not in competition for you because you like pure sports cars and because you value certain subjective characteristics over others. I do too. That doesn't change the fact that there is a large market of Z buyers who buy it because it's a sexy looking coupe with good performance on a budget. Guess which other cars fit into that category. A large portion of Z sales were lost because America upped their game and Nissan decided to stay out of the fight.

I like how the S550 Mustang drives, but not as much as the Z... But it's true that some people do not care about the same things some of us Z owners do, and as a result those guys are going to buy Mustangs and Camaros because dollar for dollar, they are faster, no question. They also have a usable (for kids) back seat and a sizable trunk for your wife's luggage when you go away for the weekend.

I would not mind a slightly higher starting price for the Z, losing 300 lbs and gaining 25 hp (3000 lbs/360 hp) would be where I'd like to see the car go. A $60K price tag combined with the toy car/impractical nature of the Z would just result in a car that won't sell, even more than the current Z.

So some good news. I got confirmation that more than likely the next Z will be a 3.0TT.

I was at the Nissan dealership and one of the people there confirmed that he heard from a Nissan rep that it is most likely going to be a 3.0TT

No joke that is what he told me. He said that it will be the close to the same weight as it is now and it will be a 3.0tt. If I'm lying to you he lied to me.
