2024 Nissan Z Pricing Leaked Online
Pricing on the 2024 Nissan Z appears to have leaked on the requisite web forums and it’s a tad bit steeper than you might have been anticipating. Nissan has made the sport coupe a little more expensive for the coming model year. However, it’s the high-spec Nismo variant that’s really going to stretch your wallet.
Based on information shared via the New Nissan Z Forum (h/t CarBuzz), the 2024 Nissan Z Sport will start from $42,210. Meanwhile, the more hardcore Z Performance is supposed to boast a starting MSRP of $52,210. That’s allegedly before the $1,095 destination charge is added to either — resulting in a vehicle that costs over a grand more than it did last year.
While the coupe’s starting price remains relatively close to the $42,000 most of us were anticipating due to inflation, the Nismo variant doesn’t appear to represent the same performance bargain as the lesser trims.
While the Nismo’s twin-turbocharged V6 receives a tuned-up 420 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque, it’s reportedly going to retail for $64,990. In addition to the uptick in power, owners receive an absolutely sick set of RAYS alloy wheels wrapped in performance rubber, upgraded brakes, stiffened suspension, Recaro seats, unique side skirts, special color options, a ducktail spoiler, and more. That’s in addition to the upgrades (e.g. limited-slip differential) found on the Z Performance. Although that model can be had with a six-speed manual; the Nismo only comes with a nine-speed automatic to help maximize its performance numbers.
It’s a nice little package — if not a little expensive vs. the competition.
Nobody seriously expected the Nismo variant to be a steal. But Nissan has positioned the model dangerously close to the Chevrolet Corvette and Ford Mustang Dark Horse. Those models may not end up being any quicker. But their spec sheets include larger engines boasting more power. While this may not matter to the kind of person interested in buying a top-tier Z from Nissan, it probably will sway a subset of buyers who aren’t married to the model’s heritage.
Still, the lower-trimmed Z continues to offer a lot for the money. While everyone likes to praise the Toyota Supra from behind the wheel, the base Nissan Z absolutely trounces the 2.0-liter model in terms of price and on-paper performance. Though things get a little murky when pitted against a Toyota equipped with the 3.0-liter DOHC 24-valve inline six.
Hopefully, the value proposition will be settled once everyone has a chance to drive the above models. However, the Nismo Z will need to represent a serious upgrade over the Performance trim to rationalize its rather lofty price tag — assuming this MSRP leak is legitimate.
Either way, Nissan assumed to announce the Z's official pricing for the 2024 model year later this month.

- Dusterdude @El scotto , I'm aware of the history, I have been in the "working world" for close to 40 years with many of them being in automotive. We have to look at situation in the "big picture". Did UAW make concessions in past ? - yes. Do they deserve an increase now ? -yes . Is their pay increase reasonable given their current compensation package ? Not at all ! By the way - are the automotive CEO's overpaid - definitely! (That is the case in many industries, and a separate topic). As the auto industry slowly but surely moves to EV's , the "big 3" will need to be producing top quality competitive vehicles or they will not survive.

- El scotto Huge lumbering SUV? Check. Unknown name soon to be made popular by Tiktok ilk? Check. Scads of these showing up in school drop-off lines? Check. The only real over/under is if these will have as much cachet as Land Rovers themselves? A bespoken item had to be new at one time. Bonus "accepted by the right kind of people" points if EBFlex or Tassos disapproves.
- El scotto No, "brothers and sisters" are the core strength of the union. So you'll take less money and less benefits because "my company really needs helped out"? The UAW already did that with two-tier employees and concessions on their last contract.The Big 3 have never, ever locked out the UAW. The Big 3 have agreed to every collective bargaining agreement since WWII. Neither side will change.
- El scotto Never mind that that F-1 is a bigger circus than EBFlex and Tassos shopping together for their new BDSM outfits and personal lubricants. Also, the F1 rumor mill churns more than EBFlex's mind choosing a new Sharpie to make his next "Free Candy" sign for his white Ram work van. GM will spend a year or two learning how things work in F1. By the third or fourth year GM will have a competitive "F-1 LS" engine. After they win a race or two Ferrari will protest to highest F-1 authorities. Something not mentioned: Will GM get tens of millions of dollars from F-1? Ferrari gets 30 million a year as a participation trophy.
