My point is that I find 2 things humorous and I am making fun of both of them.

The first is that I did not incorrectly categorize the vehicle in any manner - I didn't refer to it as an SUV or...

Except every previous Z sold in the US was named around its displacement. You could call it 300Z, but you don't shrink your number (see BMW and MB), so 400 is entirely logical as it is both larger...

I assume you mean the 400Z should be cheaper. In a vacuum where all things are equal, that should be true. But Ford and Chevy are in very different situations than Nissan.

GEN I does this. Usually it happens with the AC on due to the strain on the motor which has the tendency to dip the engine to around 500 rpm. So I think in that case it is to try and prevent a stall....

If I'm not mistaken, the yellow portion also adjusts based on where you set the beep.

So if you have it at 3,500, the yellow portion will fill from 3,500~redline.
