With the new 2023 Nissan Z only just now having launched in North America, its creator is already following up with a track-ready variant, the Z GT4. This puts an end to months of rumors that have been circulating for a long time about such a variant.
The Nissan Z GT4 was developed by the Japanese automaker’s racing division, NISMO (Nissan Motorsports). Unlike some race cars that are essentially fiberglass shells mounted on a custom-made tubular chassis, the Z conforms to GT4 series rules. That means it's based on the actual road car, but delivered at the bare-bones stage of the assembly process - in other words, when everything that needed to be welded together to make the model was. So no paint job like the regular Z, etc.
A test version of the GT4 has already been put through its paces at the Fuji 24-hour race in June, as well as in the Super Taikyu endurance series in Japan.
