Same interior right down to the door handle and dash vents/speakers which makes sense seeing it's a re-skinned 370Z. At least it looks more modern inside and I imagine the new engine will at least make it more exciting to drive. Car & Driver is claiming it will be priced between the Supra 4-cylinder and 6-Cylinder so in the range of $45k.

I don't love the gaping rectangle of a front air dam, but don't hate it either. Still not as offensive as the new 4 series lol.

My parents lived in a relatively yuppie-filled condo complex in the 90s where I spent a decent amount of my formative years and I had one young male neighbour in particular who had a beautiful 300ZX in red before he eventually bought a then-new E46 M3.

This helped fuel my teenage obsession through the 00's with the 350Z/G35/Skyline, so this redesign is giving me a lot of nostalgia.

Just the fact that it's a twin turbo V6 means if everything else was kept constant, it's going to be noticeably heavier. Cast manifolds, two turbos, all the associated piping and intercooler(s), etc.

Add in new crash standards and such, I won't be surprised to see it 150 lbs heavier than the 370Z. As long as it has enough space for monster rubber and enough brake, I don't see it as that big of a deal.

EDIT: But I'm really disappointed because at first they made it sound like it might go on sale late next year, now it's sounding like late 2022 at the earliest.

Supposedly it will use carbon fiber, but to what extent and will that be enough to offset everything you listed? We shall see.
