Speculation is circulating around the automotive media that Nissan is preparing a revised version of the Z-car. According to reports, the 350Z will turn into the 370Z when Nissan updates the sportscar with the 3.7-liter V6 in its recently-revised sibling, the Infiniti G37 coupe. Whether the Japanese automaker will use this opportunity to facelift the model altogether as anticipated remains to be seen.

The reports suggest that the 370Z will be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show, home turf to Nissan's sister-company Renault, this coming October. That's still months away, so stay tuned for more information.

      Long live the Z!

        I remember Nissan saying a while a go that they were going to put their sights on the Cayman with the next 350Z. If that is true it definitely needs to go on a diet. The Xayman and Z4 wheelbases are much shorter. I am sure they can get rid of some of the extraneous space in the car (i.e. those pointless storage bins behind the drives seat. Also, I'd like to see them push the engine farther back. I know that's what they did with the 350Z grand am cars. Sort of a front-mid layout.

        All that said, I love my 06 Z.

      THIS October...not next

      All I ask is that they get it to 60 in under 5 seconds and I'll be a happy camper.

      Needs some exterior and interior refreshening to make it to the next total redesign ala the 2009 RX-8.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I hope it is more than a minor face lift! I was behind one today and it is looking old, the rear lights were never great to begin with and the Infinity blows it away. I also hope the interior gets updated to at least an Altima standard.

      330hp and 3300lbs in a two seater roadster under $30,000. Sounds good to me!

      I bet they'll redesign it to make it look more like the GT-R.

      i still havent gotten tired of the look of this generation Z.. IMO all this car really needed was a small diet (200-300lbs).. i almost bought it but chose the S2000 for the great lease offer and light feeling of the car (also they were prying off the bumpers to steal the HID's in miami).. i test drove it 4 times and loved it.. i just hope it doesnt look too much like the gt-r.. the fairlady Z has always been its own entity with styling apart from the skyline/gt-r..

      I want to see a new Nissan Z with twin turbos, like the 90s 300ZX
        • 6 Years Ago
        They have it, it's called the GT-R. ;-)
      • 6 Years Ago
      Yes i know, but the GT-R is too sportive and extreme.
        • 6 Years Ago
        350Z's have 330hp NA. How exactly could you add a twin turbo without pushing the horsepower into GT-R territory? What you're asking for would basically be a 2-seater RWD GT-R. Besides numerous aftermarket companies offer fantastic twin turbo kits that easily put out 450hp+ if that's really what you want.

      Freshen with a little more classic 240Z influence.
      Don't shorten the wheel base.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I am a little worried as well that the shortening of the wheelbase too much will create a choppy ride that unsettles easily.
        • 6 Years Ago
        It already has a choppy ride.

      If this was an American car everyone would be saying that it is getting old and needs an update. The only American car that can go seven to eight years now is a Corvett and that is to keep the price down, and it has a look that just looks good right now, you couldn't say that for the C4.... It always looked creepy like a guy with a bad hair piece and gold jewlery..... sorry Uncle Fred!

      Can't wait, I still love my 300ZX, so this should be interesting. I'd love to see some homage to the older Z's though.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I agree with you guys. A little more power on the new one wouldn't hurt either.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Taylor, great choice sweet ride! Is it a twin turbo? I still look at those after all those years & say what a great design. To me, its like a Japanese Jag E-Type. Simple, clean lines without any tacky add ons.

        Too bad they didnt offer the TTurbo with rear seats in North America :(

        Styling wise, I hope they go back to that.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Agreed, the 350 (and 370) are slick pieces of tech and performance - hopefully a 'little' more style will come about soon too. Not that its bland by any means, but a little more 300, or a lot more Datsun 280 would be awesome!
        • 6 Years Ago
        I'd love to see the 350Z retained as an entry-level model. This is a truly fantastic platform; yeah, it's a little hefty, but its balance is amazingly intuitive and forgiving for the beginning enthusiast.

        I suspect those who knock it haven't taken it to a track (or are comparing it to much more expensive iron).

        It'll be interesting to see the 370Z serve as a sort of yardstick for the upcoming Mustang, Camaro and Challenger. While some might argue that they serve different audiences, they're very similar in concept and character, and the Z has arguably set the
