's man from Japan, Peter Nunn, supposedly has it on good authority that Nissan's new Z-car is headed to Los Angeles this November for its official unveiling. According to Nunn's source, the 370Z looks "fantastic," despite it being a more evolutionary design.

The really interesting tidbit from Nunn is that the new Z will be shorter than the outgoing model by around four inches. That might curtail speculation that the spy shots we've seen of a chopped 350Z was a new rear-wheel-drive model that could resurrect the Silvia nameplate. Too bad. But the 370Z will be sporting the 3.7-liter V6 found in the Infiniti G37 coupe, a slightly wider track and, hopefully, will shed a few pounds from the outgoing model.

      Price aside. the Z is still a porker A 200 lb weight loss is the minimum. And it has no trunk space, and it's under powered, I know I have one. The twin turbo was the last real Z. With very few mods you could get 400+ hp out of it and it was about the same weight as the new one.I should have bought a pre owned Z06 for lest money and had a much lighter and quicker car that gets better mpg with more luggage space and it rides better. I like taking weekend trips. Nissan should have offered the 4.5 V8 with 400hp as an option. But its still a PORKER!

      Good less weight. 200 to 300lbs would be a good start. That would make it about the some as the Vette.

      I hope there will be an AWD option for those that simply can't afford a GT-R.
      • 7 Years Ago
      I hope the interior quality is up, because that is where the current car needs the most help.
      • 7 Years Ago
      while the interior is no BMW or Porsche,
      that is why te car is $20k less
      • 7 Years Ago
      So looking forward to this car! The current one has an awful interior but it goes like a bullet. They need to get this thing less porky and down in price. The rwd hyndai is on its way....

      AWD ain't gonna happen. Nissan is making the 370Z all about low cost and high power:weight. They learned from the 300ZX that you have to keep it simple and cheap to sell in volume.

      Trick's on you guys, that's an N. OWNT.
      • 7 Years Ago
      It gonna be the size of the 300ZX 2 seater.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Yay! I'm sure it'll turn out to be a hell lot better looking than the current PoS G37 ..

      What do you guys think of this car Vs. the BMW 1 series?
        • 7 Years Ago
        The 135i is overpriced and under-pretty.

        My wife looks at a 350Z and says "Wow!" She looks at a 1-series and says "Um, is that it?"

        I give a lot of credit to Nissan for making the Z a great bang-for-your-buck, and I give credit to BMW for profit-grabbing from a bunch of poseurs who pay extra for a little blue-and-white badge.

        hahaha! Well said, Hammy! I hope the new 370z (doesn't really have the same ring as the 350z, huh) is a greater car than its predecessor. The Z is one of the few affordable RWD cars out there, so here's to making it even lighter, more powerful, and a better handler!

      I know I'm dreaming, but maybe I can has paddle shifters? If the 370Z got the same transmission as the GT-R then I would have finally found my next car.
