2023 Nissan Z Performance Review – Be Still My Heart

The new 2023 Nissan Z Performance is one of those cars that made my heart flutter the minute the first Z Proto images were released in September of 2020. The automotive world could hardly believe that Nissan was bringing a new iteration of the Z to production and that the production car would closely resemble the concept Z Proto.
