Nissan Z owners manuals

The Nissan Z-series is a model series of sports cars produced by Nissan across seven generations since 1969.
The seventh generation debuted as a 2023 model, with the Z model, the brand's first Z automobile without a number in the model name (which reflected the displacement of the engine in the past). In 2021, Nissan confirmed that the new Z would not carry the Z35 chassis code, but instead the RZ34 chassis code.
Like its brother, the Nissan GT-R, the Z is equipped with a twin-turbocharged V-6. Instead of the 565-hp 3.8-liter engine that’s under the hood of the GT-R, the Z gets a 400-hp 3.0-liter powertrain from the Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 mated to either a six-speed manual or a nine-speed automatic.
