I like it quite a bit. I think they did good work with the styling and V6s are neat and increasingly rare. That being said, I can’t say I’d consider one unless it was solely a weekend car, and I don’t have the budget to have a 40kish car as a toy, especially when I’m about to be forking that much over for the GRC. If you can make a two (or even 4) seat coupe work for your needs as a daily OR have enough money that you can afford it as a second car, I say more power to you! But I have a dog, a fiancée, make decent but not amazing money and sooner or later kids will be in the picture. I can afford one 40k car, which is why a high end hot hatch is so appealing for me as the best of all worlds.
It’s also an ancient platform. If I’m not mistaken it’s still riding on the same one as the 370Z, which was old to begin with. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, as I’m sure lots of folks considering it want an old school analog sports car feel, but it’s something to keep in mind. Plenty of sporty cars on ancient platforms do great numbers…looking at you, Charger and Challenger.
All in all I think Nissan did a great job with what they have. They’ve had a couple of really rough years and don’t have access to the kind of cutting edge stuff that more successful companies do. For what’s basically a parts bin car rather than a bespoke sports car, I think the Z is awesome. They really needed a good design and good marketing/reception for it to work and so far it looks like they have both. I’m definitely pulling for Nissan/Infiniti to make a comeback, as they’ve produced some truly amazing cars throughout their history, and the more enthusiast options the better.
