Call me crazy, but when you get an invite from Sean Lee to see the new Z in Los Angeles, with a cap on how many people can be in there at the same time. (COVID precautions), you go and spend some quality time with your new love 💕. The Z of course.
That Friday morning, woke up, drove to the airport, got picked up by a friend (Tyler Gray), grab lunch, and see the Z. Since my light was at 5, we had to leave the Z event a tad early so I could make it back on my flight back to Dallas. Take a peak at my weird video below that I threw together to document the day!
The SkidZ drift event and Z reveal at ZCON was a blast! Nothing broke on or off track except my wallet with all the tires I went through! I really want to thank everyone that did a paid ride along or bought a cup or shirt, that helps so much with being able to go out to these events and put on a show!
Please take a moment to watch the video that Momentum Media put together for the drift event/real life Z reveal!
Tonight Nissan went on livestream to unveil what we have all been looking forward to, the next generation Z car. A few questions had been officially answered;
“Will there be a manual transmission?” The answer is yes. With all the racing heritage the Z has, I believe the entire Z community would be an uproar if there wasn’t. (Remember the time Nissan unveiled the second gen 370 Nismo… without a manual transmission option? I do. Nissan fixed that by the following year).
“What engine? Turbos?” V6 Twin Turbo! I’m pumped about this. The amount of tune-ability we will have will be awesome. Turbos is what the Z car has been missing for the last 15 (plus or minus) years.
Questions I still have; *Price point *Trim levels *Type of differential and/or if an LSD will be in all trims *Power-HP/Torque *Weight Distribution
It seems that a lot of the new Z came from us the enthusiasts. I know that Nissan can’t please everyone but overall I believe they did a great job listening to us. As this is still the ‘Z Proto’ and I’m sure there will be a couple little tweaks, I’m extremely proud to own three different generation Z cars currently and continue my dads Z car legacy with another generation Z soon.
