Looking pretty much like what everyone has been expecting for months now, the 2010 Nissan 370Z dropped this morning. The company hasn't released any details, although from the new nomenclature we can surmise that the sports car contains the new 3.7L V6 as used in the Infiniti G37. The new Z goes on sale early in 2009, and we'll see it live at the LA Auto Show in a few weeks.

ALL-NEW 2009 NISSAN 370Z COUPE READIES FOR DEBUT

Nissan offers the first look at the upcoming 2009 370Z Coupe, which makes its world debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show on November 19th. The all-new 2009 Nissan 370Z, the first full redesign of the iconic Nissan Z since its reintroduction as a 2003 model, solidifies the strengths of its predecessor with an unmatched balance of performance, style and value. The all-new Z will go on sale at Nissan dealers in early 2009.

      Looks good, I like the new version. Is the wheelbase shorter than the older version?
      • 6 Years Ago
      I like it a lot. As others have comments, I hope it is significantly down on weight compared to the outgoing 350z. Shave 300 or 400lbs. off and we've got a winner.

      I like it. From the looks of it, the interior is much nicer and with its lighter weight and more power it should be quite the performer. 350Z's never caught on with me. Both the 80's (87 on) and 90's 300ZX's were better at what they did. They were strong performers for their time with the turbocharged models and the technology applied to them was amazing. Then we get a 350Z...no X = no turbocharger...adjustable suspension...SuperHICAS...T-Tops(Like em better than a plain ole convertible)...and etc. Not saying the 350Z couldn't beat its past in a race but every car should beat its predecessors. Z's of old even competed with Corvettes and Porsches...they always went a level up for competition. 350Z's...competition is Mazda RXish(Japanese even followed up the great RX-7 with garbage) and Honda S2000!?!? Oh well, I'm glad Nissan is trying to compete with the Porsches and all again. Oh and the headlights....what the f***!?!??!

        Aha, okay. I can definitely see your point there. Personally, I like the styling of the last generation RX-7 better than the RX-8. And power wise... they could be monstrous.

        Oops...I meant every car should be able to defeat its ANCESTORS..lol
        • 6 Years Ago
        I'm sorry, the RX-8 isn't garbage. Its actually a very good car. I simply meant compared to the RX-7 I think they took a few steps back in style and performance. I understand why they did and I'm happy its working out for them but for a true sports car fan its not as pleasing.

      Ugg they kept the handles. That was my biggest pet peeve of the last z and they kept it. These views are still hiding some. Id like to see direct front and rear shots.

      WHY is it riding 4x4 height? Drop it 2 inches and maybe it would look better. The inside looks nice though.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I like it. I see GT-R influences everywhere.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Sorry, not feelin' it for this car.

      The peak of the roof at the A-pillar, going all the way down to the rear bumper, and then the side window sill sagging downward from the A-pillar also makes this car look like it is sagging in the rear.

      Someone said it really well... Frogger. This thing looks like a frog, all they need to do is paint it green.

      The L-shaped lights look like a gimmick, not a positive design choice.

      The front intake looks bizarre.

      All in all, I think I'll pass. At least it isn't trying too hard to be everything to everyone, though. I can respect that, at least. I hope the people who like the styling, also enjoy the car.

      I think I'll hold out for something more visually attractive, as well as performance capable. Like say a used Cayman.

      Nissan has made some great strides w/ the Z. I seriously dig the side profile, it definitely pays homage to the old 240Z/260Zs of yester-year. I also like the way Nissan incorporated the retro cues w/ a bit of the bluntness from the GT-R; subtle but striking. All in all, a good update for an already solid car. That said, I'll have to withhold judgment about the lights until I actually see one in person. Some cars fair better in pictures, some don't. With the stance this car has, I think its 'robustness' can't be fully gauged until you're in front of it.

      I could wish for all the things we gearheads always do: Light, simple, nimble, and ample power; but we live in different times, and compromises are always necessary. We'll see what Nissan left on the cutting room floor.

      ME LIKEY!
      • 6 Years Ago
      Looks great! Much improved from the slab sides and square inlet of the 350.

      Still on the short list for when my Subaru implodes...

      The interior is amazing and a serious improvement over the previous generation. To me this is especially noticable in the door panels.

      As for the exterior, there is an awful lot going on there, especially in the rear 3/4 shot.

      Also, didnt think it was possible, but they made the door handles uglier- would it have been so hard to have had an NSX or FD type handle integration?

      Aesthetics aside, I think this is going to be a hell of a performer.
      • 6 Years Ago
      True true...I hope the NSX doesn't suffer from their recent design slump.
