Default 2017 z?

Not sure what the numberfs are but I was out at the Nissan dealer and that little two seater bluie Z car fit like a GLOVE.

I want it, but it's still listed at 30k, new, warranty

Are these cars lemons or solid cars? V6 in it I believe, crazy power.

Never driven one but the 370z is one sexy car. I'd love to have one that is Monterey Blue

Up here in the Great Northwest, anything Japanese is KING. I've seen a few of these 370z's around. They turn heads everywhere they go.

One thing about this part of the country is that people restore Nissans in great numbers. I still see a restored Datsun roadster here and there once in a while. And 720's and hardbodies are just everywhere, even though they haven't manufactured them in over twenty years.

To Scott Turchin: A high-end Nissan a lemon? Surely you jest. At the high end of the scale, Nissan has always traditionally done very well. It's the insurance rates on that car that might be a bother.

They are very solid cars, Nissan has had this platform for quite some time to work out the kinks.

As far as the VQ37, really good response and reliable.

Those 370 definitely have the power. Six speed manual or seven speed auto. Will go to almost 7,500 RPM.

Yeah...

Basic info on the American versions shown below:

Model Years Type/code Power, torque@rpm
370Z (North America) 2012- onward: 3,696 cc (226 cu in) V6 (VQ37VHR) 337 PS (248 kW; 332 hp)@7000, 365 N⋅m (269 lb⋅ft)@5200 NISMO

370Z 2012- onward: 3,696 cc (226 cu in) V6 (VQ37VHR (NISMO Version)) 355 PS (261 kW; 350 hp)@7400, 374 N⋅m (276 lb⋅ft)@5200 370Z

NISMO (North America) 2013- onward: 3,696 cc (226 cu in) V6 (VQ37VHR (NISMO Version)) 355 PS (261 kW; 350 hp)@7400, 374 N⋅m (276 lb⋅ft)@5200

I kind of like that LAST entry, the one from 2013 onward. 355 horses from a V-6 pulling that reletively small car? Well, that might toss your sunglasses into the back seat for you.

I was in the market for a commuter car last year. Being single, I considered a lot of gently used Zs (350Z and 370Z). It's amazing how much that sticker price drops from Retail to 3 or 4 years old.

In the end, I settled on the Altima Coupe with the 3.5L. Not as fast as the Z, but I've got somewhat of a back seat in a pinch. ...and I don't look like some old fart going through a mid-life crisis driving it.

Three point five liter? I didn't know the Altima had THAT large an engine. That will definitely get you from A to B...quickly.

That's the SR package. 270 HP. The non-SR have the 2.5 liter 4-cylinder.

Yeah. It'll go.
