The 2023 Nissan Z Finally Shows What It Can Do Against Its Competitors

The 2023 Nissan Z Finally Shows What It Can Do Against Its Competitors

We finally see how the manual and automatic Nissan Z perform against each other and their direct competitors

With the Nissan Z about to go on sale, the Japanese company finally handed out press cars in order for us to find out how it stacks up to its competitors. Hagerty was lucky enough to get two cars – a manual and an automatic - and pit them not just against one another, but against a GR Supra, a Mustang Mach 1, and as a bonus, a 2010 Aston Martin V-8 Vantage. The results are as much surprising as they are not.

Nissan Nismo Will Prevail Despite Electrification

Nissan Nismo Will Prevail Despite Electrification

Nissan is confident that the Nismo performance brand will live on well into the electric era

The transition into electrification and the sheer speed in which that transition has escalated has called the future of high-performance names into question. When it all started, we all wondered what would happen to names like AMG, BMW M, SRT, and Nismo, among many others. AMG, for example, has fully embraced electrification as part of its future business model and Dodge’s SRT brand will soon have its hands in an “electric muscle car.” What about Nismo, though? The Nissan Leaf EV has been around for a while, but the brand hasn’t exactly dived headfirst into electrification. So, does Nismo have a future?

The Four-door Nissan GT-R Sounds Cringe, But It Actually Makes Sense

The Four-door Nissan GT-R Sounds Cringe, But It Actually Makes Sense

Nissan is going up against the Porsche Taycan, and these renderings of a four-door GT-R EV prove it

Nissan is in an interesting place. It gave us the first new Z in 14 years and its newly introduced Ariya is the brand’s first EV crossover. While both models have been delayed due to supply chain problems, there is another interesting development. It concerns the Nissan GT-R and the possibility of a four-door version, which may also be an EV. If what we hear is true, this could mean that the R36 generation will come in, at least, two flavors. Is Nissan planning to compete with the Porsche Taycan and Tesla Model S Plaid?

This R36 Nissan GT-R Rendering Makes Us Crave For The Next-Gen Godzilla Even More!

The R36 GT-R could borrow design cues heavily from the Nissan Vision 2020

The Nissan GT-R is a name that really needs no introduction, does it? The current-gen R35 is a little long in the tooth and fans of Godzilla have been asking for a new one forever now. Here’s Mat Watson from Carwow giving us a run down and what he thinks the next generation GT-R could look like.

2023 Nissan Z Spotted Out In The Open And Boy Does It Sound Good

2023 Nissan Z Spotted Out In The Open And Boy Does It Sound Good

This YouTuber managed to get an up-close look at the upcoming Nissan Z

Prior to its debut about two months ago, sightings of test mules of the Nissan Z were quite common, and the car was spotted countless times. But since the new Z is now finally out, it seems like those test cars have ditched the camouflage.

The R36 Nissan GT-R May Skip Electrification Altogether As the Twin-Turbo V-6 Lives On

The R36 Nissan GT-R May Skip Electrification Altogether As the Twin-Turbo V-6 Lives On

Nissan isn’t sure about electrification yet, but a new platform and an evolved version of the twin-turbo V-6 will be in play

Back in April 2020, the Nissan GT-R’s fate hung in the balance as it looked like it would live on as it is until it was inevitably put to rest with no successor on the table. Nissan said it wouldn’t update the GT-R because it wanted to keep it affordable – if that’s what you call a car that is priced between $110,000 and $210,00, but I digress. In May of 2020, it was even rumored that Nissan could kill of the GT-R and the Z altogether to keep itself afloat. The good news is that this obviously didn’t happen and the R35 GT-R is still alive. Now, however, we’ve learned from a new report on Autocar that the R36 Nissan GT-R is, in fact, happening, and it might not go the route of electrification at all, if you can believe that.

The 2023 Nissan Maxima Could Finally Be A Step In The Right Direction

The 2023 Nissan Maxima Could Finally Be A Step In The Right Direction

Will the 2023 Nissan Maxima turn the boring Sedan into an exciting sporty Proposition, or is It destined to remain a bland fleet Car?

You probably know the Nissan Maxima as the brand’s bland sedan, destined to be a fleet car for a rental company or a taxi service. Over the years, the car did have a few decent versions, among which the SR, which was supposed to be a sportier variant of an otherwise unremarkable mid-size, front-wheel-drive sedan. To make things worse, the Maxima dropped the manual option in 2008 and, ever since, the potent 3.5-liter V-6 had to work with a lame CVT unit. However, the 2023 Nissan Maxima has the potential to be an exciting proposition. Here’s why.

The New Nissan Z Was Kind Of Developed With Inspiration From the Toyota 86

The New Nissan Z Was Kind Of Developed With Inspiration From the Toyota 86

The inspiration didn’t come from design, styling, or performance but purpose – pure unadulterated purpose

For the longest time, fans have been begging Toyota to turbocharge the Toyota 86 and, ultimately, make it faster. But, Toyota has remained firm on its stance of remaining naturally aspirated, and it all boils down to the Toyota 86’s driving dynamics. What does that have to do with the Nissan Z? Well, the Nissan Z was built on the very same premise. It might feature a potent, 400-horsepower, turbocharged V-6, but at the end of the day, it’s not about numbers, it’s about the pleasure of driving; It’s about driver and car becoming one. And, if you don’t believe me, maybe taking it from Nissan’s Chief Engineer, Hiroshi Tamura, will help you see the light.

Here's Why You Don't Need To Wait For An Updated Nissan Z

Here’s Why You Don’t Need To Wait For An Updated Nissan Z

Waiting for a Nissan Z Facelift may be pointless. Here’s why

The Nissan Z finally made its official debut on 18th August 2021 and you will be able to order yours in spring 2022. With this in mind, a question you may be asking is “should I wait for the updated version?” The Nissan Z, like all other cars, will eventually receive a facelift. Although we can only guess how an updated version of the car would look like, it’s common knowledge that facelifted versions fix all (or at least some) imperfections of new models. However, this may not necessarily be the case with the Nissan Z, so is there really a need to wait a few years to get one?

What To Expect From The 2022 Nissan Z

If the Nissan Z is as good is it sounds, it could be the best Z car that we’ve ever seen

There has been a lot of hype, drama, and rumors surrounding the 2022 Nissan Z with everything ranging from Nissan killing off the Z altogether to how much it will cost and that it could even be offered as an SUV. With so much news and so many rumors over the past couple of years, it’s time we lay it all out on the table. So, this is what you need to know about the Nissan 400Z and what to expect when it debuts on August 17, 2021.

Nissan To Unexpectedly Stir Up The EV Market By Making The Same Move It Did 70 Years Ago

Nissan To Unexpectedly Stir Up The EV Market By Making The Same Move It Did 70 Years Ago

It’s been a long time since we’ve had a true compact pickup, and the first one since might be an EV!

A new rumor circulated the web says that Nissan is working on a new EV, but not just any EV – it’s reported a compact electric pickup truck. It’s not just the size and motivation that would make such a model unique, but the fact that it will have zero competition if it’s launched soon enough. Sounds crazy, right? Well it is, but maybe crazy is exactly what the industry needs right now, and it won’t be the first time Nissan created its own segment based on the compact pickup truck.

Everything You Need to Know About the 2023 R36 Nissan GT-R

Fresh developments on the next-gen Godzilla come straight from Japan

The upcoming GT-R has to be one of the most anticipated super sports cars in recent times. Nissan has been working on a complete model redesign for its flagship sports car for a while now. Looking back at Nissan’s history, the Skyline GT-R, which has long been the icon of Nissan’s sports cars lineup, is currently in the third generation of models with the GT-R name, following the first generation from 1969 to 1973 and the second generation from 1989 to 2002.

Don't Be Fooled Into Believing What You're Hearing About the Nissan Z and Z Nismo

Don’t Be Fooled Into Believing What You’re Hearing About the Nissan Z and Z Nismo

If this latest report is true, which it’s probably not, we could be seeing the Nissan Z Nismo in less than a year

Despite rumors that Nissan was killing off the Z car altogether, September of 2020 brought with it the good news that was the Z proto – a nearly production-ready prototype that will retire the long-lived 370Z with a lot of retro-inspired goodness. The production version of the new Nissan Z will be revealed on August 17, 2021, and now a new report signs a faint glimmer of light on hope that the Nissan Z Nismo will be revealed not long after that. There’s only one problem – the source isn’t exactly the most reputable.

Nissan Isn’t Giving Up on the Skyline, But you Might Not Like What’s Coming

The future of the Nissan Skyline name might, once again, have something to do with crossovers

The Nissan brand and its partners are in the middle of restructuring their operations. The Japanese brand will be in charge of operations in North America, while Renault will manage things in Europe. Despite the major reorganization of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance, Nissan’s executive vice president Asako Hoshino assures us that the Skyline name will live on.

A New Rumor Says The 2022 Nissan Z Will Be On Sale Very Soon

A New Rumor Says The 2022 Nissan Z Will Be On Sale Very Soon

Does this rumor expose Nissan’s plans for the 2022 Nissan Z, and is the reveal really imminent?

The Nissan 370Z is a great, affordable sports car that offers decent performance, but there comes a time when you have no choice but to put an old dog down. And, after 13 years on the market, that’s exactly what’s happening and why we’re super stoked for the new Nissan Z to hit the market. Rumor has it that it’s supposed to debut in late 2021 as a 2022 model, and the latest leak says that it could happen just in time to order yourself a nice, sexy Christmas present on four wheels.

Here's Why The 2022 Nissan Z Is Better Than You Think

Here’s Why The 2022 Nissan Z Is Better Than You Think

The 2022 Nissan Z shares a lot with the 370Z and that’s actually a great thing

The 2022 Nissan Z is currently one of the hottest cars around, even before it has actually gone on sale. After 13 years of milking the 370Z, the Japanese brand has finally come up with a new Z-car. The formula is the same – two seats, rear-wheel-drive, a powerful engine up front, and a manual gearbox (unless you get the automatic). Essentially, it’s a proper old-school sports car. That said, a known fact is that the new Z will carry a lot of stuff over from the 370Z. In the minds of some, this hardly justifies the purchase of the new Z, but we are here to tell you why using bits from the 370Z is actually a very good thing!

The 2023 Nissan 400Z Nismo Could Have the Current GT-R’s Engine!

Can NISMO give us a GTR-powered Z-car?

Nissan’s upcoming Z-car is one of, if not, the most talked-about vehicles in 2021. After the 13-year production run of the 370Z, it was about time for a replacement to come around. Nissan has been very secretive about the exact specs of the new Z-car and the only thing we know for sure is that US prices will start at around $35,000. However, sometimes information leaks way before it was intended to. Such is the case with what we are about to share.

Nissan's Z Platform Evolved to Underpin the Z Proto and 400Z

Nissan’s Z Platform Evolved to Underpin the Z Proto and 400Z

Down at its very core, the backbone of Nissan’s upcoming entry-level sports car is drenched in the DNA of the 370Z and 350Z

For many years we thought Nissan may never revive the Z as the aging 370Z was left lingering in production for what seemed like an eternity with the Japanese automaker showing no interest in developing its replacement.

Happily, though, Nissan did finally call time on the 370Z’s long production run and previewed the next Z with the retro-looking Z Proto. While many things are new on the model, that will probably be named 400Z when it reaches production, its underpinnings are linked to Nissan’s long-standing FM platform that hides underneath both the 370Z and the 350Z, as well as many other Nissan and Infiniti products.

If these rumors are true, then the Nissan Z would redefine the notion of bargain sports car

New details popped up online about the upcoming Nissan Z, including the fact that it won’t be called the 400Z as everyone thought, but simply the Z everywhere in the world except for Japan, which will get it as the Fairlady Z. Mind you, the following bits of information did not come through Nissan’s official communications channels, so do apply the pinch of salt rule when digesting them.

We Now Have Proof the Nissan Z Proto (And The 400Z) Will Have An Infiniti V-6

We Now Have Proof the Nissan Z Proto (And The 400Z) Will Have An Infiniti V-6

The upcoming Nissan 400Z could arrive with as much as 400 horsepower!

It’s been some five months since Nissan unveiled the Z Proto, a near-production prototype that previews the next-generation Z car, likely called the 400Z. The successor to the 370Z will look a lot like the Z Proto and word has it power will also come from a V-6 engine. But while the 370Z sports a naturally aspirated V-6, the 400Z will feature a twin-turbo unit. And we now have proof that the mill will be shared with the Infiniti Q60.

2022 Nissan Pathfinder

This SUV has been losing its path lately and the 2022 model could bring the much-needed boost to its sales

Nissan recently revealed that it will be debuting the Frontier pickup truck and the Pathfinder SUV on February 4, 2021. Both these vehicles will be entirely new and not mere refreshes. Both these vehicles are expected to follow the design philosophies of their ‘bigger’ siblings, the Titan and the Armada. The Pathfinder will come with a plethora of changes inside out, and perhaps a new off-road trim, too.

Update 2-4-2020 The new, 2022 Nissan Pathfinder has finally be revealed. We’ll be updating this review in the coming days, but until then, you can check it out and learn all you need to know in our feature debut article!
