Yeah, I understand. The C8 is more of a niche car due to its limited cabin and carrying space. But if you don't want drifty, and want 'cornering on rails', the C8 is pretty darn good.

What about a base C8? That's in the M2 price range and weighs less.

I hear ya. Although after everything I put into my BRZ, it was close to $40k (had the Edelbrock SC but took it off for the stupid valve spring recall, and sold it after).

Yup, $10-15k increments...

I haven't seen near as much hype for the 400Z as I did for the Supra or C8 Corvette. Some dealer markups on the C8 are still crazy high as supply can't keep up with current demand.

Did some canyon driving with some friends a few weeks ago and one of them had a beautiful Z in almost the same shade of orange as my C8. I love seeing a clean S30.

Thanks - I do miss the 280. The similarity to the S30 is one of the main reasons I chose the BRZ. I agree with you; I wasn't very enamored with the later Z's and felt that they had moved too far away...
