The 2023 Nissan Z Sports Car is a brand-new model. Based on the Z Proto concept, this amazing model has so much to offer. It seems like the sports cars are back in the game. New Corvette or Toyota Supra are the perfect examples. Of course, Nissan is always in the race, so its new Z model will be the real deal. After years of using the alphanumeric name, like 370Z, the new model will be simply called Z.
Reportedly, this version will deploy a twin-turbo V6 with 400 horsepower. Of course, Nissan will offer both manual and automatic transmission. We expect to see a lot of technology updates and impressive exterior design. The sales will begin next spring and here’s everything you need to know.
Nissan Z Sports Car Engine Specs
The Z, like its more ferocious sibling, the Nissan GT-R, is powered by a twin-turbocharged V-6. However, rather than the GT-fire-breathing R’s 565-hp 3.8-liter engine, the Z receives a 400-hp 3.0-liter mill from the Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400. While the Infiniti offers all-wheel drive, Nissan is keeping with rear-wheel drive only for the Z. When the Z goes on sale, buyers will have the option of a six-speed manual or a nine-speed automatic transmission. We have not yet had the opportunity to test drive the new Z, but when we do, we will update this post with our observations and test findings.
The EPA has not yet issued fuel economy figures for the new Z, but if the Q60 is any indication, we should anticipate highway fuel economy ratings of about 28 mpg, with city ratings just shy of the 20-mpg mark. We’ll get additional information closer to the vehicle’s on-sale date, and we’re planning to test the Z’s highway fuel efficiency on our 75-mph test route. Visit the EPA’s website for additional information on the Z’s fuel efficiency.
Although this is a new model, the 2023 Nissan Z Sports Car won’t introduce a completely new interior. It continues to be a two-seat coupe without rear seats. However, everything else has changed. The new Z’s cabin has been renovated with upright materials, which is a significant advance over the existing 370Z’s antiquated interior. There is a choice of leather upholstery, power-adjustable seats, and dual-zone automatic temperature control. The cargo room remains unknown, but we’re not expecting a lot of space.
Nissan has moved the Z into the twenty-first century with an optional 9.0-inch touchscreen display, a 12.3-inch digital gauge display, SiriusXM satellite radio, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. While a six-speaker stereo is standard, audiophiles may choose for a premium Bose audio setup; an onboard Wi-Fi hotspot is also available.
Extremely Sporty Design
The upcoming 2023 Nissan Z will look incredibly sporty. It looks like Nissan is paying respect to its legendary models. We like the yellow paint job, longer hood, and rounded headlights. The grille looks squared-off, while the rear section sports LED taillights and carbon fiber elements.
This model will ride on 19-inch wheels and it will be 172.5 inches long. Moreover, Z Sports Car is 51.6 inches tall and 72.8 inches wide. The credit goes to the new architecture and the 2023 Z will be larger than the last 370Z variant.
2023 Nissan Z Sports Car Price and Release Date
The base price of the 2023 Nissan Z Sports Car will begin at around $40,000. This is higher than the current 370Z’s price. There will be three trim levels, and the Z Proto Spec variant will cost slightly above $50,000. The sales will begin in spring 2022.
