    According to Wikipedia, the 370Z is 8" shorter in length, 1" taller in height, has a 1.4" longer wheelbase, and a not insignificant 5.8" wider.

    Weight-wise, the 370Z is 586lbs heavier then the lightest (I assume non-turbo) S15. Turbo models were about 100lbs heavier.

    Yeah, in terms of dimensions it's similar however it's about 600lbs heavier which is really quite a lot.

    Although, I could see a smaller 6cyl turbo, but that probably isn't what is being talked about.

    A RB30DETT would fit the description....

    Eh, is this going to take the place of the Z? I'd expect/want this to be a lightweight turbo-4 2+2 BRZ competitor.

    Because an imaginary engine based on a more than 30 year old design is what nissan needs to bring in new business. Yes I'm pissed and a cunt but the fact an engine never made it to North America isn't a good reason for it to be reintroduced after its long aver due pasture appointment.RB's are shit.

    Two new models, same platform. One will be the Toybaru competitor, the other will be the new Z.

    Nissan has revealed their engine for the car that will run unclassified (Garage 56) next year. 1.5l producing 400hp, weighs only 80lbs. I'm not sure if/when such designs will make it to their road cars, but thought it was pertinent for this thread.
