How fast is the new $50k Nissan Z? — New Z vs Supra vs Mustang Mach-1

The Nissan Z has a 400-hp twin-turbo V-6. It’s roughly the same price as the Ford Mustang GT 5.0 and Toyota Supra, so let’s answer the $50,000 question: Which one makes it through the quarter-mile first?

The 2023 Z Sport starts at $41,015 (with destination) but this is the $51,015 Z Performance, which comes with wider tires and a limited-slip differential. It’s likely that the base car will be slower due to the rear-wheel traction differential.

For the first race, with Jason Cammisa’s now-iconic frozen-time slow-mo walkback, we have the 2023 Nissan Z with a 9-speed automatic transmission battling a 10-speed Ford Mustang Mach-1 and an 8-speed Toyota GR Supra 3.0.
