2023 Nissan Z Review // $50,000 Hero…With Enemies

The 2023 Nissan Z Performance ($61,398 as specced in Canada, ~$52,310 in the US) is the latest iteration of the fabled Z sports vehicle; the earliest of which dates back to 1969. It has 400 horsepower from a twin turbo V6, styling encouraged by its classic legacy, and for the very first time ever – electrical power steering. The new 400 Z is looking to be a strong and classy sports coupe, capable of going head to head with its contest. Thomas and James give the Z Performance a run down on both the street and the Throttle House test track. We hope you get pleasure from the episode! Thanks for viewing!

  1. I’d imagine a nismo spec z would be more track focused

  2. Finally I get to see them in a VR30 as a Q60 owner I’ve been waiting to see this

  3. As a Succession fan, wow, that bit did not miss.

  4. Nonetheless🏖️

    A concept car has fully driven.
    Dragon ball Z

  5. Not too surprising, Zs have always been lacking a bit in outright performance compared to their competitors. Its beautiful though and would make a great street car, which is what 99% of people will use it for.

  6. there 100% will be a Nismo version, this would be considered the base model Z hence the undersprung and quiet GT car vibe.

    That 2nd gear grind however is HIGHLY concerning and seems to be a recurring problem from the 350z and 370z

  7. Thomas, when I was 17, my dad took me with him while he was shopping for a new, from the dealership, sports car.

    One of the cars we drove was a 350Z.

    After my dad told the sales guy that he wouldn’t let me drive while we took the car out, just after we turned the first corner, he pulled over for me to drive…I remember locking the rear wheels on a simple downshift because I didn’t know what rev matching was at the time and just let the clutch drop and bite; luckily the rears only full locked for a moment before control was regained.

    This 350Z was also the first time I was in a car that someone hung the back end way out while making a nice open left turn onto a fast road. Coolest dad moment, but hey, even a broken cLock is right twice a day.

  8. Saved me a $50 stack decision! Literally every early review I watched they gloated avout performance. This is why you wait for the Throttle House review!

  9. Thumbs up just for the Terrance and Phillip reference, “I’m not your buddy, guy” had me laughing.

  10. I loved my 350z. Got excited when I heard about the new Z. Watched the online launch. Was sad when I heard it won’t be sold in Europe. Got happy because I am moving back to the US and the Z is available. Ordered a new Camaro ZL 1 🤣🤣
