So this thing HAS to be offered in a new Z. There’s so many routes they could go with the next Z, but I think it needs this engine, be slightly larger than an 86, probably a little heavier and be like $29k. Then offer the new TTV6 with 400hp at $35-$42k.
Look... FUCK the Z.

This thing has Silvia written all over it.

Totally agree that the Z is done. But letting the G/Q be the lowest level sports car means that Infiniti has it's "entry level" sports coupe, but Nissan doesn't. I think it'll make it's way down to Nissan. I'm just hoping it's in the form of a Silvia with the specs Exit mentioned. But I wouldn't mind seeing a V6TT Z following it a few years later, offering 400hp+ for $40k-ish...

Plus let's not forget the current G/Q is auto only.

Tesla Roadster unveiling was a bit of a surprise. It's still a concept, so we'll see if they actually achieve those lofty goals of 0-60 in 1.9 secs and 600 mile range. Looks good though!

It does look good. Let’s see if it ever sees production.

1.9 sec 0-60?!? Gawddauym... Well, if they have S models that can embarrass GTRs and they put that power/drivetrain in a car that weighs under 3000lbs... They might get pretty close...

I donít deny the 0-60 claims. Thatís achievable. What seems less likely is this thing actually making it on the roads with any kind quality typical consumers expect.

Right now Tesla is in ďproduction hellĒ (Elonís words) with the 3 and nonend in sight. They still have not addressed Model S and Model X issues. They announced a automous Semi.

It just seems unlikely. Or if it does itíll be so limited and itíll be 3 years before one hits the road.

Elon also said that the roadster will hit the 1/4 mile in 8.9 seconds. That would be impressive.

Its becoming almost all hands on deck for the Model 3 production.

I'd like to see this Tesla Roadster take on the likes of other gasoline sport cars on a road course.

This is Nissan we're talking about. It's going in some 4 door boxy compact.
