What is the most recent article? I found this one February 6, 2015.
2016 Nissan Z35 Price - 2016 / 2017 Nissan Cars

says that the car will weigh in at 1,300 pounds? Who writes this stuff?

If they could make a Mustang that drove like a sports coupe should I would buy one in an instant, but so far I have not been impressed with any of the ones I drove vs. the Z - and I'm well aware that both of them would put down better lap times than my NISMO on most tracks. They just were not exciting to drive in the slightest outside of the first couple of rushes from the V8's power.
I almost bought a 5.0... then I drove my NISMO. While noticeably slower, it feels like a much more sorted package than the Mustang, and WAY better than the Camaro SS that I also cross-shopped. Slower, yes. More fun, hell yeah! And still not anemic and cheap feeling like the Scibaru I tested first.

To be fair to the 5.0 though, it's not a sports coupe and never was; it's a powerful 2-door cookie cutter that you can turn into whatever you want. The aftermarket on those cars is 2nd to none so if you have money and like to mod, it's a great choice.

You guys spend a lot of time discussing what someone says "could" happen. I could be a multi millionaire by 2017 anyone want to discuss?

60k for a Z? Nah I'll go GTR route instead. What keeps me from buying a GTR is that you can't do repeated launch controls (Without wondering if something happens) to the tranny and Nissan is not responsible for it! (At least that's what the GTR forum people say...)

I can (would) buy the next Z35 if in range (35-45k)

That is a very stupid reason not to buy a GT-R. There is a lot more to a car then 0-60 times. Oh, and the newer cars don't have any launch control issues.

I love how everyone is only talking about price.

The whole fairy tale of the next gen Z being a twin turbo V6 hybrid while being smaller and lighter than the Z34 didn't raise a single eyebrow for ridiculousness.

The next gen Z could make 78 mpg city. It could also debut a new engine technology which will allow the car to emit cancer-curing gases from its NISMO exhaust. It's gonna cost you suckers $60k though. "ZOMG DUDE. Would SO rather buy a used GT-R, a Civic, and a measles vaccine for $65k."

I think they should put a twin turbo V6 hybrid AND a turbo 4-cylinder in it.

Not everybody wants a straight line muscle car. Some people want a more balanced approach such as handling, braking, etc. I'm not saying the Mustang can't do these, but it seems that it puts more of its eggs in the acceleration basket.

I'm personally not into Mustangs or Camaros. I like the "sloped" hoodline that traditional sports cars have e.g. Z, Vette, Porsche 911 to some degree, Viper, etc....But I don't like the GT-R because of its lack of this sloped hoodline....hence its a muscle car in a sense....to my sense at least.

$60K, again, is not a lot of money for a BRAND NEW hipo car with an all around package; Mustang 5.0s at $32K are not all-around-packages.

Just my 2 cents....

I'm guessing they'll try to be a little more environmentally conscious.

Maybe something like this?

Don't think I would pay $60K for it though
