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.

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?

Watch The Nissan Z Proto Stream Here And Look Back At Everything We've Learned So Far!

Watch The Nissan Z Proto Stream Here And Look Back At Everything We’ve Learned So Far!

We’ve laid out all Nissan 400Z coverage to help you get in the loop before watch the live unveiling!

It’s been 11 long years since the Nissan 370Z replaced the 350Z, and it’s been at least 5 years since we all started calling on Nissan to move to something new. The 370Z’s days are numbered, and the Z Proto that debuts later today is definitely our first real look at what we can expect from the next Z Car, but it also represents at least two more years of waiting before something new enters production. We’re expecting to see a lot of retro design cues pooled together with modern design to create a truly unique sports car, and there’s even a good chance that most of what we see will shift into production a year or two down the road. With so many rumors circulating, though, it’s hard to say exactly what we can expect, so below the live stream we’ve embedded below, we organized every piece of news we’ve covered about he next-gen Z car so far – it’s time we take a trip down memory lane!

2019 Nissan Juke arrives with updated design, new platform and roomier interior

2019 Nissan Juke arrives with updated design, new platform and roomier interior

Nearly ten years after the first Nissan Juke burst onto the car scene, an all-new model has been launched

Nissan took a gamble when it launched the Juke small crossover in 2010. The bug-eyed design was definitely very polarizing, but the model quickly (and rather surprisingly for some) gained a lot of fans and now it’s a really common sight in many countries (over one million found homes just in Europe alone). And since the radical design approach proved so successful, Nissan has elected not to change it too much for the model’s second generation that was just revealed, even though it’s an all-new vehicle riding on a different platform.

2020 Nissan GT-R Nismo

2020 Nissan GT-R Nismo

The 2020 Nissan GT-R Nismo is so good it could be a holy grail for car enthusiasts and car collectors in 20 years.

The 2020 Nissan GT-R Nismo, revealed at the 2019 New York Auto Show, is the latest evolutive step for the aging Godzilla. Some major hardware migrated from race spec GT-R GT3 to it and made it as good as humanly possible. It’s angrier, more impulsive at the wheel, and more capable.

After Nissan showed it in New York, I figured that the GT-R is something like an excellent phone app. There’s someone that always works on it and makes it better in what it does. Back in 2007, when we saw it for the first time, the GT-R R35 rewrote the rules of affordable performance. CarMagazine in the U.K. clocked it at 3.6 seconds in its 0-62mph attempt. In the same test, the 2008 Nissan GT-R comfortably topped 190 mph.
Eleven years later (yes, it is that old), and the 2019 Nissan GT-R Nismo can manage 62 mph in 2.7 seconds. That’s a fantastic improvement and surprising result in its own. However, 2018 was not the last year of the Nissan GT-R Nismo. Lately, Godzilla has reached its latest evolution as the 2020 Nissan GT-R Nismo.

I will say right now. The 2020 Nissan GT-R is the best Nissan GT-R of all time!

2020 Nissan GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition

2020 Nissan GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition

The king of monsters is getting special digs for a special occasion

The year was 1969. The “Skyline” name had already been introduced 12 years prior, first by Prince Motor Company, and then by Nissan in 1967 after the two companies merged. Two years after the merger, Nissan introduced a sports car based on the Skyline, and, among other things, it carried a three-letter nomenclature that has arguably become one of the most famous names in the entire industry: the GT-R. Fifty years later, the GT-R is still used today as the name of Nissan’s all-conquering supercar. It’s fitting then that the Japanese automaker that created the line of performance cars wearing the GT-R name is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the model with a special edition version, appropriately called the Nissan GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition. In line with its stature, Nissan debuted the GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition at the 2019 New York Auto Show.
