    Not much power over the NA version.
    Nissan "quality".
    Overpriced at MSRP for what it was and then marked up even more.
    If you had the money for it, you instead bought a Mustang or Camaro, which would be better in every way.

        nissan forgot to make those in large quantities to stop dealers from scalping their only allocated unit while toyota ate the sales for japanese sports car buyers by actually manufacturing enough gr86 and supra.

        They forgot that they actually had to make the damn thing, meanwhile stealerships marked it up to the point where the BMW Supra was cheaper

        Are you guys still seeing dealer markups? Because E-V-E-R-Y new car now has had massive markups. Broncos, mustangs, mavericks, rangers, Ford alone had massive markups because there was just no supply of them and they had a super high demand.

        I'm seeing zero markups other than the scumbag dealers who don't move large volumes anyway. Heres a rural dealer with 4 (1 on the lot, 3 in transit) in stock with $0 markup. But again, $55k for a car thats slower than every other $55k car and comes outdated from the factory is why it isn't selling.

          Nissan bro it is too little too late for current turbo 370Z. Other car brands had similar issues with shortages yet they adapted and produced more to sell and now all of the enthusiast mind share about new Z is gone forever. Just release next electric Z and hope you can make more than 100 cars for worldwide launch. Top of the line nismo version is only available as an automatic so no manual and nothing of value would be lost for electrification and nissan could be making the next godzilla type of vehicle that could capture the emerging fun ev market that ioniq 5 N is building right now.

    any enthusiast who drove it on track discovered it sucks, and word got out. unlike its competitors, power is actually overrated by the factory. it's rated at 400 crank horsepower but only makes 350 at the wheels. if you read the article they got a better laptime out of an automatic BRZ. for the price there are much better options that aren't on a 20 year old chassis. it's all show no go.

    Not the same car they've been selling for the last 20 years with (yet another) mid-cycle refresh facelift.

    If Nissan actually designed a new sports car and sold it as a new Fairlady Z, people might be interested.

    Nostalgic looks are ok for cars that aren't going to sell on their badge, but retro powertrains aren't. Japanese sports car buyers aren't buying on nostalgia.
    Nissan Osborned themselves showing off a concept for a next-gen Z car, but tried to play it safe with one last outing for the old powertrain.

    Also doesn't help that Nissan Dealers want Model 3 Performance money for them.
    Why buy a brand whose value proposition is a performance bargain for better tech, if they're not a bargain for better tech?

    Dealer markup, bad styling, not really enough power to justify the price. If you can afford this, you can afford a supra, and if you can afford a supra, you can afford a BMW Z4 (which you won't buy anyway because if you can afford that you have taste).

    Also the nismo being auto only excluded a lot of enthusiasts/purists.
