The Carlisle Import & Performance Nationals  to welcome the 2023 Nissan Z

As part of this year’s East Coast Z Nationals, a show within the show, guests can get their first up close look at the 2023 Nissan Z at the May 13-14 Carlisle Import & Performance Nationals.

CARLISLE, PA – One of the best parts about the Carlisle Import & Performance Nationals car show presented by eBay Motors annually is the eclectic mix of past, present, and future classics that pop up on the Showfield. This year’s event is May 13-14 at the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds and just announced, guests can see for the first time, a car that’s sure to be in high demand in the coming months.

As part of this year’s East Coast Z Nationals, a show within the show, guests can get their first up close look at the stylish and sleek 2023 Nissan Z.  This will be the first time that the 2023 Nissan Z is appearing at an enthusiast event in the northeast region. For a car that was officially unveiled last summer and is highly sought after by its fan base, the chance to see it in person and up close has been sparse.  It’s all happening at Carlisle within Building Y and the aforementioned East Coast Z Nationals.


The Seiran Blue Nissan Z will be flanked by nearly a dozen classic and modified Zs and just outside of Building Y will be 50-100 more, plus Skylines and GTRs too. In addition to the Seiran Blue color, the 2023 Z comes with blue-trimmed interior and a manual transmission. Art imitates life, too, as a blue Nissan Z just like it adorns this year’s event t-shirts, commemorative pint glasses, decals, and more.

In addition to the 2023 Nissan Z, guests coming to the Carlisle Import & Performance Nationals can see cars and trucks from around the world, some of which they’ve never seen before. This international automotive showcase also offers a passport program with checkpoints, further encouraging guests to “travel the world,” all while getting their booklet stamped, with some prizes available at the end of their journey. 

Unique displays include the Z, the BMW, 30 years of the Subaru Impreza, a French display spotlighting the collective works of Robert Opron, and more.  There’s family fun, including dune buggies on display, valve cover races, on grounds parades, and track activities.  Best of all, kids 12 and under are admitted FREE!
