If Nissan goes with that Mini Z in the topspeed article I will start boycotting them (unless they name it something other than a z). They might be able to get away with calling it a 510 remake or a b210 but not a z.

Pfff. Honda S2000, the torque-less wonder.

The Z4 is junk unless its the M version. The S2k is strongest around 6k-9.5k (v-tech)

Heroe,
honestly, I stalled or bogged my old '95 Z28 6-speed more than I do the S2000. Engine torque is not what's important. It is torque at the wheels (i.e., engine torque multiplied by trans and diff ratios) divided by *weight* that matters.
S2000 > Z4 for track/autoX performance and for looks (glassy-eyed skyward gaze and Banglified random lines over a the Z4's blobular body don't do it for me)

Skittle, for the record, it's "VTEC", not "v-tech"!
