The 2023 model year Nissan Z sports car will weigh more than expected.

Due to internal documentation of a number of Japanese brand dealers, it has become known that the 2023 model year Nissan Z sports car will weigh more than expected.

The lightest version of the Japanese sports car weighs 1,581 kg.

Nissan unveiled the new Z-family sports car back in August 2021, and yet we’re still missing some piquant details about the novelty.

Fortunately, one of the most important pieces of the puzzle has now fallen into place thanks to a leaked order manual for the Canadian market.

Reflecting the model for the U.S., the version to be sold in that country, known for its delicious maple syrup, will be offered in Sport, Performance and Proto Spec trims.

The entry-level Z Sport in Canada, equipped with a manual transmission, weighs in at 1,581 pounds.

Replace the standard six-speed manual transmission with an optional nine-speed automatic, and the latter adds another 29 kg to the total weight, increasing the curb weight to 1,610 kg.

Being the base performance, it has the least number of options and therefore is the lightest of all.

Recall that the base 370Z with manual transmission weighed 1,511 kg, so its replacement added 70 kg in weight.

The Z Performance adds big 19-inch wheels (instead of an 18-inch set), a mechanical limited slip differential, an eight-speaker Bose audio system, heated front seats and an electrically adjustable driver’s seat.

The mid-level Z also has front and rear spoilers, more massive Nissan Performance brakes and leather on the steering wheel and seats.

As for the Proto Spec, it weighs the same as the Performance because it’s all about visual improvements: yellow brake calipers, bronze wheels, leather upholstery with yellow stitching and similar cosmetic changes.

The Z Performance and Z Proto Spec weigh 1,604 pounds with the manual transmission and 1,634 pounds with the automatic transmission.

The more generously equipped trims weigh an average of 23 kg more when equipped with manual transmissions and 24 kg more with an automatic transmission compared to the base Sport.

A document provided by Nissan Z Club confirms that the 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine makes 400 horsepower and 475 Nm of torque.

Speaking of which, the Canadian version comes with a cylinder block heater. Elsewhere, the Z Sport gets 320mm front and 308mm rear brakes, while the Performance and Proto Spec get 355mm and 350mm.
