Nissan Decompensating


Mckrack

Recommended Posts

I Have Just Seen A Commercial For The All New Nissan Altima Coupe. What The Hell Is That May I Ask? It Looks Like A 350z And The Interior Is Much Like The 350z And The Dash Board Has The Three Round Gauges Like Our Cars And The 350z. Is Nissan Ending The Short Lived 350z Or Bringing To Market The Upgraded More Powerful 350z That Looks Like The All New Nissan Altima Coupe Or Are They Finally Listening To Us And Getting Rid Of The 350z And Developing An All New 240z They Way TheY Should Have In The First Place. Although I Owned A 350z And I Like It A Lot I Would Have Preferred The Original Design. I Think They Are Rapidly Decompensating.

It's just another rendition of the Altima. Front wheel drive. I'm sure it's just to have something to compete with the Civic/Accord coupes etc. They showed us one a couple of months ago at the Z show sponsored by Temecula Nissan or whatever the name of the dealership is there. I wasn't impressed.

If you look at the interior of the car you will find the same 3 gauge dashboard pod that memorialized our cars. This is not right. Something is going on at Nissan and I want to get to the bottom of this. How could they take those gauges put them on the dashboard of a car that does not have the Z name attached to it. They have summarily stolen from the Z car name what has defined our cars for a generation or more. Now they have an Altima disguised as a 350z. What's next. Will they change the name to the Altima Z or the Z Altima. Don't you people understand they are slowly liquidating our cars to the proverbial garbage dump of History by using a design that has been in our cars since at least 1969. First they decided to take the Q45 Coupe and chop it up and call it a 350z. Now they have taken the Altima and morphed it in to a 350z. What's next will they be using the dash board of the 350z and use in the Sentra or what ever else the hell they make and can't sell.

Keep your 240z, 260z, 280z 280ZX and 300zx's and hide them from Nissan they don't deserve to use our cars another moment to sell their crap. Like they did with the Vintage Program to sell the 350z. Nissan is Evil and they are coming to get us they are coming to destroy our hobby and us.

It's the beginning of the end. Hide your cars and don't look them in their eyes. If they ask you if you have a Z car tell them no. If they ask to see your Z car tell them you don't have one. Keep your cars away from them and don't whatever you do answer the phone if they call or answer the door if they ring the bell. If you go to Daytona stay away from them and if they ask you to take a look at their new cars just tell them you have a prior engagement and get the hell out of there before they get their clutches on you. If that happens you are doomed. They are talking about us behind our backs and they are plotting to use our cars to design their next atrocity. Be careful they are right around the corner and they are disguised as some that you might know here. I am not kidding. You may think I am but trust me when I tell you that they are hell bent on disrupting and destroying our enjoyment for their jollies. Be careful they are out to destroy you. It's a Nissan plot and I don't want to have to tell you I told you so.

It's just a ploy to enter another niche market. They're basically aimed at 20-somethings who can't afford a Z or the woman whos kids are grown and would like something more personal and sporty than a minivan, without the "harsh" ride of a Z.

I'm not impressed by them, but I know of several who are trying to figure out a way to buy them. To each thier own.

Easy there...

That's the same as calling the Camry Solara a Supra. Different class all together. Nissan, like any other company, will try to capitalize off of old ideas, they did the same with the dual gauge pod in front of the driver on previous Frontier and Xterra... they never called it an Xterra Z. Other than the VQ that Nissan throws in nearly everything they make now, there are no other similarities.

Trust me when I tell you there is more to this then meets the eye. Maybe a communist plot with Fidel Castro and Chavez. The three gauge design stolen from our cars may be lenses that are watching us. Maybe maybe not but we have to be careful. What about thet other thing they sell with the guy from the Soap Operas advertising it like a drug from a Pharmaceutical Company. Don't be fooled friends there are messages being sent that you don't even know exist until it's too later and you are being sucked in to their game.

Be careful the next car you buy from them may be watching your every move and reporting back to their mother ship.

BTW has any body figured out the correct color of the rear finishing panel?

Can someone explain to me why I/we should feel threatened by the Altima Coupe? It's just another car. It has nothing to do with the Z old or new. If anything its a smaller version of the G35. If you own an older Z (S30) why do you even care what Nissan does. It won't effect your car since they haven't made parts for it in years but still have some that can be had. But if you want them to fail and not be in the car making business, then maybe you should start to worry. Your communist plot idea might switch to junkyards. You'll start blaming them for charging outragous prices for nuts and bolts. "But its only nuts and bolts" - "Ah but they're Nissan/Datsun nuts and bolts"

When I'm in Daytona I'll make sure to look over my shoulder often.

Want to complain about a car, complain about the new Sentra. Now thats butt ugly IMO.

The Geico reference was great. I'm still laughing about it.

I don't like the Altima because it looks like the 350z and the G35. It doesn't have a unique look of its own. Design team is really lacking in originality and imagination.

The new Altima, 350z, G35/37 and the Skyline all look the same roughly, but with each their own styling ques, but with most of it looking the same. Then they all have the same motor, but with different numbers and drive systems.

So what the Altima is FWD. It pushes 270hp, weighs 300lbs less then a 350z so it can very well turn out to be a touch faster then the 350z. Then if the FWD system is set up right and the suspension is good all around it can do very well on the track. Plus this too is quickly going to turn into a tuner/ricer mobile with all the ready mods that are out there. Its only $2k less then a 350z, and all that it really looks like is that the 350z offers RWD instead. Sure it has more power, but the weight is much lower of the Altima, and I would not be surprised at all if the Altima does better 0 to 60 and around a track then the Z.

The Z should have gotten a nice upgrade a while ago all around, but the Z car has been neglected and seems to have been replaced by several other similar cars.

If I wasn't such a Z fan, this would be my $25k sports car of choice in that price range, but

#1 because it is FWD

and

#2 I am a Z fan and dislike how the Z seems to be copied and not even mildly redesigned.

I don't like this car

This is typical marketing by Nissan. They get someone in the 20's that can't afford a 350 and they tease them with a peppy, nice looking, somewhat fun car to drive. Then in 3.5-5 years when the come back, they are more established in their careers, have a second income, or have a rich relative that has died recently and they have more disposible cash to throw at a more expensive, more impressive car. It's done all the time, i.e. Infiniti, Acura, Lexus.

Did anyone else notice on the commercial they boast that it starts at $20K? Read the fine print. The red one in the commercial was 31k! You could get a decent REAL Z for $11,000!

EVERY manufacturer does that. There's a good chance the Altima coupe buyer wants a back seat, something that the Z doesn't offer. Probably cheaper insurance... Not afraid to drive it in the winter up north... Like I said the only thing they have in common is the VQ35.

The thing that bugs me the most is the theft of the three gauge design. They didn't even have the ability to design the dash differently. The car is a piece of $^!#. Yes they have neglected the car that got them there and that is our cars. I will even put the 350z in that same class. Now the Company will fall and fall hard. I for one don't give a crap if they go out of business. All their cars now are clones of themselves. Plus the French guy has to go and he can thake Reneault or how ever you spell the damn anti American French don't want to help our Country in the Middle East ***** car with him.

Yes and yes. They wouldn't even be around if it weren't for us saving their asses in WW11. Now that Frenchman can take his ball and go home. Yes for sure I have always considered my Z a work of art and one of the design rationals for that decision is the 3 gauge design and now it's in the Altima. I feel like puking. Dirty bastards.
