That's what I was thinking also, but on the SOHO site they say not for AWD cars. I would guess that it wouldn't take much to re-arrange the SOHO kit to fit an AWD.

If you do ever feel the urge to get rid of the VWs, bring 'em over to the West Coast. They have cult status here and go for way too much money.

BTW, I don't think you have "too many" cars. Seems...

I was assuming that the Q60 would be getting the 9AT, but at least for 2021, Nissan/Infiniti has retained the 7AT for the 2021MY Q60. Ugh. However, reviews of the 2021 Q50/Q60 have been praising the...

It just occurred to me that the Z34 and the upcoming Z35 do, in fact, have much less hatch area than what I recall the Z31 and Z32 having. I know this because the FM coupe platform sacrifices rear...

This is how the new Z upsets the Supra:

Base Z has 300HP TT V6 at $36K vs Base 4cyl Supra at $43K (even if you say $40K for base Z, still looks better!)
Uplevel Z's have 400HP TT V6 at least...

As for the WRX vs. GTI tune/HP gain/$$ ratio, both the WRX and GTI are 2.0T.
The GTI engine (just the engine) is superior to the FA20. From...

My Z31 and Z32 T-tops were reliable and easy to deal with. We would always joke about how "70's" they are, but they are fun (to me).

I'd be OK with a solid roof car. My wife's previous Subaru had...

A couple of counterpoints....

On the triple gauges of the ProtoZ, I think you mean turbo RPM gauge? That's a clear sign that the ProtoZ has the 400HP VR30 in it, as the 400HP VR30 utilizes turbine...

370Z hatchback area comparison to a Z32, Z31 or 280ZX?

I've never really spent any time around a 350Z or 370Z. I own a Q60 which has a tiny trunk. I have heard that the 350/370 hatch area isn't much better.

For those who are familiar with something...

The Q60 starts in the low 40's.

Are you thinking the new Z will be priced the same as a Q60?

Nissan doesn't have a decent 4cyl anymore. The VC-T motor is a hot mess. I've driven a QX50 loaner car a couple of times, hate the motor. Or the trans. Or both. I dunno what it is but it's not...

The Proto Z has the 400HP VR engine. If you look on the dash, you'll see a turbo speed gauge. The 400HP VR engine has turbo speed sensors. This is likely a mid-level engine.

The first thing I did when I bought my Q60 was buy the OEM lip spoiler for it. In my mind's eye the new 300Z needs a lip or duckbill option to "fill-out" the rear end.
