2023 Nissan Z Performance is what the Ford Mustang GT wants

Highlights of the 2023 Nissan Z Performance Street Drive:

  • I recently drove a 2023 manual transmission Nissan Z Performance on the roads around Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin
  • While the Z Performance isn’t the sharpest sports car, it’s fun and more than fast enough to lose traction on a rainy road
  • The Z feels like the sort of car many people mistake a stock Ford Mustang GT for, i.e. a stylish sports car that’s satisfying to drive outside of straight-line scenarios

Cars & Coffee’s crash memes notwithstanding, the Ford Mustang is a decently sporty car. But apart from the high-priced Shelby GT500 and maybe the Mach 1, it’s not really a sports car. Sure, some people just want it to make sick V8 noise and drive fast in a straight line while looking cool, which it’s pretty good at. But without some chassis and suspension upgrades, the Mustang isn’t the best choice for exploring twisty roads. But there’s a better one: the 2023 Nissan Z Performance.
