The nearly new 2023 Nissan Z, as well as Toyota’s just-announced 2023 Toyota Corolla GR

They’re using an existing 400hp twin-turbocharged V-6 that has already been proven by sister brand Infiniti

and they’re harnessing suspension and other mechanical tricks honed in-house, with their amazing GT-R.

But don’t think that’s damning in the slightest.

On the track, the 2023 Nissan Z is as bracing as a shot of Red Bull.

The driving position allows shorter or taller drivers to get well-positioned, with manual controls to lower or raise the seat height

and individually adjust thigh support, which can also change your leg position to the pedals

Nissan sharpened the shift feel of its six-speed manual gearbox.

The new Z is super sporty, but it also gallops comfortably, mile upon mile, so it’s an enjoyable car you could easily commute in.

While Nissan hasn’t made claims about a specific 0-60 mph time, the new Z feels plenty quick.

The twin-turbocharged V-6 boots out 400hp, whereas the outgoing 370Z managed a decent 332hp.
