Nissan’s next-generation Z car is out in the open now, albeit in the form of a prototype aptly called the Z Proto. The Japanese carmaker is already busy sorting out this thing so it’s only a matter of time before a production version turns up.

That said, there’s still no telling exactly when the Z Proto will hit production floors or how the resulting car will stack up to its predecessors, so it makes sense if you’re still eyeing something like the current-gen 370Z. Nissan’s current Z car is available in the Philippines with a P2,779,000 price tag. For that amount, you get a 3.7-liter V6 with 332hp and 363Nm mated to a six-speed manual transmission.

So, how does that package look compared to other markets that offer the same sports car? Let’s have a look.

In Japan, the 370Z carries a ¥3,979,800 (P1.82 million) starting price. That gets you almost the same performance as what’s available locally—a 3.7-liter V6 with 331hp and 363Nm paired with a six-speed manual transmission. The 370Z in the US, meanwhile, starts at $30,090 (P1.49 million), and packs a similar engine capable of 332hp and 366Nm.

In Europe, specifically the UK, you can own a 370Z that churns out 324hp and 363Nm for as low as £30,035 (P1.88 million). Nissan Australia’s base 370Z variant, again with a 3.7-liter V6 engine with 329hp and 363Nm, costs $49,990 Australian dollars (P1.74 million). And finally, Nissan Abu Dhabi sells the base 370Z for 149,500 Dirham (P1.97 million).

Basically, the base 370Z is the same package in most of these markets: a 3.7-liter V6 engine with more or less 330hp and 360Nm paired with a six-speed manual transmission. It’s considerably pricier here in the Philippines, though. Boo.

Let’s hope we fare better in terms of pricing when the next Z arrives.
