    But there is a Miata hardtop, Dee -- the Power Retractable Hard Top!

    Related: the 370Z replacement will most likely have a smaller, turbocharged engine.

    On a replacement for the 370Z, he said: "I know what the powertrain will be and I know it will exist. It would be reasonable to assume it will have a downsized turbo engine. There will be normal and Nismo versions."
    Get that weak shit off my track

    So, a Silvia by another name? The 'Fairlady' and 'Fairlady Z' lineages come back together again after all these years?

    The way I'm reading that is that the new Z/Fairvia will be on an extended IDX platform rather than a chopped Skyline platform. That's always been the problem with the current Z, they couldn't get the weight down enough using the FM platform. Being a silvia guy rather than a Z guy it's brilliant news to me and if they do it I'd likely jump back into the Nissan camp.

    That really is good news, and a great way to spread out the development costs of the IDX!

    A smaller turbo Z... well that just isn't a Z is it? As others have said, it's a Silvia.
