Is the NEW 2022 Nissan 400Z a sports car worth the price?

The ALL NEW 400Z is highly anticipated by enthusiasts around the world and we are all hoping Nissan will deliver. The exterior of the new Z features plenty of styling clues taken for the 240Z, 280Z, and 300ZX. On the outside you will find 19in wheels, and massive rotors and calipers. On the inside you will be greeted by the tri-gauge pod on top of the dash, and all new infotainment system and 12.3in digital gauge cluster. Under the hood enthusiasts are hoping for a 3.0L twin-turbo V6, but the great news is there is still the availability of the manual transmission. Is the NEW 2022 Nissan 400Z going to be worth the price?

    Brian ReyesBrian Reyes3 days ago
  • Here is some hate just to change things up in the comments. First, I love the minimal style, for 2010 standard. But the style is outdated for 2021 standards and looks very similar to last generation (which looked more aggressive with the Nismo or Amuse Bodykits). The chrome looks terrible as it does not flow with the rest of the car; the rear looks like it is a Dodge Charger wannabe (like, Thomas the Tank Engine saying "Hey I want to join you bad boys too") . The biggest caveat is that the car looks like it was value engineered...rather than an upgrade you got Renault (not Nissan) just trying to appease the "Z" fans with a lackluster product.

  • Its very difficult to merge contemporary styling with retro styling cues and have it all work well together. Owners of early Z cars will find plenty if familiarity, judiciously applied with taste. This is a masterful design that manages to do it all and still have a unique character all its own. Bonus points for retaining the concept of the original- simple and light weight performance that you can actually afford to buy. Nobody cares how cool the car is if we can't afford to buy one and there's a reason the original 240 (like the Miata) had months long waiting lists of buyers. Hopefully the production car retains the soul of this concept.

  • Sorry, but it is boring looking; especially the ass end which used to look nice and fat. There needs to be more mix of hard and soft body lines. I'm also a sucker for purpose-driven air inlets. I will give them a big high 5 for not slapping a stupid table-style infotainment system on the dash like everybody else; good job! Make the exterior more appealing and I would consider it.

    • @Raiti's Rides I just really wanted it to look more like the original 240Z but more modern. “Turbo speed” gauge? What is that? It reads and displays the rpm of the turbo? I would have thought you meant “Boost Gauge” but you already said that and “volt meter” before that.

  • I love the design of this car. I'm a huge Z car fan and currently drive a jet black 2020 370Z that I was inspired to buy in part thank to Joe here. Nice one Joe. Although this new car is stunning I wouldn't swap in my 370Z. I just think the 370Z is a more muscular car and to me personally more iconic. Plus I think this isn't coming to the UK or Europe.
