The all-new 2023 Nissan Z stays true to its roots

It started 52 years ago with the Datsun 240Z, one of the most legendary sports cars in automotive history. Today I introduce you to the seventh generation, the 2023 Nissan Z. For the first time there are no numbers in the name, it’s just the Z.

I love the look of this Z, you can see references to all Z cars of the past. A constant over the years is the long hood and short deck.

The 2023 has LED lights all around, 19″ wheels, red brake calipers, front and rear spoilers, dual exhaust, a very sweeping roofline and I love the door handles.


Perhaps the biggest news for this new two-seater is under the hood, where you’ll find a heavily braced 3-liter, twin-turbocharged V6, a first in a Z car. My tester has a 9-speed automatic with paddle shifters, but you can also get a six-speed manual. No transfer is an extra charge.

So how is the performance? This rear-wheel drive sports car makes a strong 400 horses, 68 more than the 370Z, and it has 350 pounds of torque. The 0 to 60 time is a quick 3.8 seconds.


Another nice improvement in this new Z is the interior. My tester has red and black leather seats that are padded and fairly comfortable. Power seat buttons are located on the right side of the driver’s seat, something rare.

In front of you as you sit is a 12.3-inch instrument cluster with many different configurations in the center. It’s quite colorful and easy to read. You get outside temperature, time, miles on the car and remaining range.
