I think I've said this before.... ok I've said it a million times.... the z32 is still, IMHO, the best Z to ever come out




Nissan needs to step it up with the Z again, the Nismo 370Z looks nice but it's not "WOW that is niiiceee!"

Nissan's Z needs a new dynamic body and more options. Face lift is cool but persuades me not

I think it looks great, but it is due for a major change

Totally agree, love the Z32, not a fan of the 350Z or 370Z but do respect Nissan for offering 2 different sports cars. I compared them with a Z32 when they came out and the Z32 was just so much nicer inside and out, I really like the original G35 coupe though. Didn't the Nismo make 350hp in 2009? The exterior changes are nice but it is time for a new design, the current design has not aged well, a turbo charged 4 cylinder is not a good idea either but then again with the ridiculous extreme gov mandates looming they may have no real choice anymore.

Nissan surprised fans at the recent ZDayZ gathering in North Carolina with the unveiling of the 2015 Nissan 370Z NISMO, and we now have some photos and a video taken at the event. The 370Z already had a NISMO variant but now the car’s styling has received the aggressive new look the NISMO performance division is implementing across its range, with vehicles like the Juke NISMO and GT-R NISMO having already received the treatment.

Its GT-R-inspired functional and fully integrated aerodynamic body pieces have been redesigned to provide an aggressive and more aerodynamic appearance—as well as optimizing front and rear downforce. Key changes include a new, deep front fascia with LED daytime running lights, blacked-out headlight bezels, NISMO badging, and red accents all ‘round. The unique NISMO rear spoiler has also been reshaped and downsized.

Unfortunately, there have been no upgrades under the hood. This means power still comes from Nissan’s venerable 3.7-liter V-6, which in the 370Z NISMO has been tuned to deliver 350 horsepower and 276 pound-feet of torque. Hopefully we’ll see Nissan launch a 370Z NISMO RS soon and pack it with a few more horses. The good news is that the 370Z’s seven-speed automatic transmission is available as an option for the first time on the NISMO-enhanced model, which should increase the car's appeal.

The 2015 Nissan 370Z NISMO hits showrooms in July, 2014.

Any enthusiast would pick a Boss or 1LE over the Nismo. Lackluster engine, heavy car, and poor ergonomics and huge price tag make this a bad car.

The 350z was a good car, it was much lighter, it was a lot cheaper...

No that's not right, 350Z was 3,404lbs 169.8in vs 370Z is 3,232lbs 166.9in. Nissan touted it was lighter. It was cheaper though, but that's in part because the plastics were even worse than current.

Wiki says the base 350 was 3,188. So I was wrong about being much lighter however it was lighter none the less

Models are currently on sale

Nissan has announced pricing for the 2015 370Z lineup in the United States.

First up, the 370Z Coupe will start at $29,990. It largely carries over but gains standard Bluetooth connectivity, a retuned suspension and newly optional 18-inch alloy wheels with a black finish. There are also new Sport and Sport Tech variants as well as a standard navigation system on the 370Z Touring.

The 370Z Roadster features similar upgrades but it is significantly more expensive as it will be priced from $41,820.

Last but not least, the facelifted 370Z NISMO will retail for $41,990 which is $1,030 less than its predecessor. As we have previously reported, it has a GT-R inspired front fascia with LED daytime running lights. The model also features revised side skirts, a new rear spoiler and 19-inch forged aluminum wheels with a charcoal gray machined finish.

Note: Prices exclude an $810 destination and handling fee

Default Nissan sets new record for longest twin vehicle drifting [video]


Quote:
Traveled 28.52 kilometers (17.72 miles)

Nissan has set a new Guinness World Record for the longest twin vehicle drifting.

The record was set during the Nissan 370Z Drift Experience in Dubai, when two 370Zs drifted around a track, at the same time, without stopping for 28.52 kilometers (17.72 miles).

In a statement, Nissan Middle East Managing Director Samir Cherfan said "With today's accomplishment of setting a new Guinness World Records title, we have proven again the strength of our vehicles by adding another Guinness World Records record to our list." He added, "The Nissan Z is a very popular car in the drifting scene, and this new record is yet another proof on the ability of this car to make drifting look so easy."

I don't personally think that the last two generations of Z have been good looking at all... kind of important when you're shopping for a sports car. When is a new one due to come out?

Personally, I love the Z34. That VQ37VHR engine just raises the bar for this car.

That and the introduction of Synchronized Down Shift Rev Matching (whatever that is ) helps a lot for those choosing the Manual Stick Shift Version
