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.

- Carson D To paraphrase Michael Vick, I don't have a dog in this fight. I have some sympathy for the people who just want to support their families by building cars, but the UAW is neither their friend nor mine. GM and Ford are not forces for good either. That leaves Peugeot. Meh.
- Mikey As a retired UAW/CAW member it has been nearly 15 years since I last punched the clock. The details of the Ford Canada agreement haven't been completely released yet..I am a little perplexed at the 54 % yes vote..36 + years tells me something is not being revealed ?? The question that comes to my mind.. Did Ford Canada enhance the existing DB pension ? Or did Ford add the second tier workers in ? ..To this point second tier people only have a Defined Contribution pension .
- TheEndlessEnigma Odd how the southern US autoworkers, who are not unionized, are not screaming for UAW representation. In fact, I know some folks who are production floor techs at Nissan in Canton MS, they have been seeing transplants from northern Ford, GM and Stellantis plants. These are folks moving to Canton Mississippi area (that's on the northern side of Jackson) leaving "Big 3" union jobs to sign onto Nissan, a non-union shop. Why? To get away from a union shop (with mandatory membership) and to get away from the sluggish bureaucracies that are the UAW, Ford, GM and Stellantis. Apparently that and Mississippi looks very good compared to Michigan.
- Kosmo Umm.....probably about halfway between the two sides' positions?Neither side can cast the first stone. The Big 3 have record profits, and the UAW's leader has a mixed agenda of 1) good deal for his members and 2) a megalomaniac's drive to a legacy.
- Analoggrotto I bet a Goddess Mary Barra boudoir set would be enough to charm all of the UAW back to work.
