The new Nissan Z is a not just a more powerful and more visually appealing successor to the outgoing 370Z, it's a charming modern sports car in its own right. But modern sports cars are certainly more expensive than the cars they replace, and in this case, the shift from the 370Z that debuted all the way back in 2009 to its successor is not a cheap one. The base model of the new Z comes in at $41,015, or $11,000 over the MSRP of the last year of the base 370Z.

It compares much more favorably to its current competition, though. The price means the base Z undercuts its most immediate successor, the six-cylinder Supra, by over $10,000. It beats out the four-cylinder Supra by over $2,000, too, but it loses out to the most basic manual Mustang GT by $4,000. Expand the sports car landscape further and you'll find the Z is also more expensive than the most basic V-8 Camaro, V-8 Challenger, and ND Miata.

Nissan only offers one engine and does not alter the price between the six-speed manual and nine-speed automatic. But, if you're looking for more performance, there's a $10,000 upcharge for the more intentional variant. That aptly-named Performance model adds a limited-slip differential, upgraded brakes, and slightly larger 19-inch wheels to accommodate slightly more effective Bridgestone Potenza S007 tires. The same options come on the $54,015 Proto Spec, which adds bronze rims and yellow accents. While the Performance will be general production, only 240 of the Proto launch variants will be built.

Nissan expects the new Z to arrive at dealerships this summer.
