The automotive industries of the opposite belligerents were smaller in scale, and their services for armaments manufacture had been proportionately better than in the United States or Nice Britain. Consequently, the automotive firms in these countries have been involved chiefly with meeting the insatiable demand for autos.

The 2023 Nissan Z Is More Fun Than the Toyota Supra at a Cheaper Price

Image for article titled The 2023 Nissan Z Is More Fun Than the Toyota Supra at a Cheaper Price

Face it: You’re worried about the 2023 Nissan Z. You heard it’s nearly 200 pounds heavier than the 370Z. You read that it’s still riding on the 370Z platform, which itself was an update of the 350Z platform, a chassis approaching its 20th birthday. You’re wondering how the new Z can possibly compare to the Toyota Supra.

I was worried, too. But you and I forgot about Hiroshi Tamura. Officially, he’s a product planner at Nissan. To us, he’s Mr. GT-R — the brain behind the current-generation Godzilla, a car in its 13th model year that still blows the doors off exotics commanding twice the price. He’s the man who launched the new Z project in secret, then tap-danced his way through Nissan’s corporate hierarchy to get it approved for production.

Committee recommends city purchase burned down auto body property | News

DANVILLE — The Danville City Council’s Public Works Committee recommended purchasing a former auto body shop property on South Gilbert Street where a burned structure has been sitting.

City officials chose not to spend years going after the owner through court to get the fire-damaged building torn down. City officials said there was no insurance to tear down the building.

Instead, the committee Tuesday night recommended purchasing 7 and 11 E. Second St. for $45,000 from Richard L. Speich of Potomac. The full city council will act on the purchase next week.

Danville Community Development Administrator Logan Cronk said there are three lots south of Long John Silver’s, where Rucker’s Auto Body Shop burned down. The intent is to get the site cleaned and get rid of two blighted garages as well on the lots, he said.

The lots will be bundled with another blighted house to the north that

2023 Nissan Z First Drive Review: A Sports Car Icon Reborn

Things are pretty darn spiffy for Japanese sports car fans in 2022. The Subaru BRZ and Toyota GR 86 twins are in their second generation, the Mazda MX-5 Miata is the best it’s ever been, Acura is resurrecting the Integra, Honda is readying the next Civic Type R and Toyota is bringing a hot GR Corolla to the States. And now, after more than a decade of the 370Z soldiering on in showrooms, Nissan is finally rolling out a new 2023 Z with sweet styling, a host of performance improvements and a much-needed tech injection.

Retro style

While the 370Z had a more defined look than the 350Z it replaced, the 2023 Z goes a step further. Traditional sports car proportions remain with a long hood and short deck. Strong character lines, most notably on the hood and rear haunches, give the new Z a more buttoned-up appearance. The
