Nissan Debuts An All-New Gen Of Its Iconic Z Coupe For The 2023 Model Year

More than a decade after the release of the Z34-spec of its mighty Z, Nissan has finally revealed the highly-anticipated, all-new generation of the Japanese coupe, drawing on the model’s half-century-long history to deliver a cutting-edge, vintage-inspired Z.

The 2023 Nissan Z features an exterior design that takes blatant influence from previous generation Zs such as taillights inspired by the ‘90s era 300ZX and an overall silhouette that’s reminiscent of the original S30 models. The front midship, rear-wheel-drive Z is powered by a twin-turbocharged, aluminum block 3.0L V6 that puts down 400hp and comes paired with six-speed manual or nine-speed auto transmission options. The 2023 Z is also constructed around a redesigned chassis and is equipped with some performance-focused running gear including 14” discs bit by four-pot calipers and new monotube shocks, though there’s also an available mechanical limited-slip differential and a launch control function. The Z also gets a sleek interior with newly designed performance seats, a GT-R-inspired steering wheel, race-style gauges, and a classic Z triple pod cluster showing voltage, turbo boots, and turbine speed. Nissan has yet to reveal an official MSRP, though the company did state that the 2023 Z — which is slated for a launch in the Spring of 2022 — will be priced at around the $40,000 mark.
