Nissan is planning not one, but two, separate events to reveal the new Nissan 370Z to a select group of gearheads ahead of its unveiling next week at the LA Auto Show. But Nissan's worst-kept secret keeps leaking out. So in addition to a handful of teasers, a few game-play screen caps and a trio of spy shots, GTRWorld has seven pics of Nissan's newest Z car out in the open.

While the new head- and tail-lamp treatments have garnered the most attention, a few elements haven't been in clear view until now. The slight indentation in the roof matches the revised hood, while the shortened hatch and new bumper eschews the outgoing model's harsh creases for a more bulbous back end. Inside, the rear strut tower brace that seriously compromised the 350Z's trunk space has been moved just aft of the doors and everything in the engine bay looks ready for production. Check the images in the gallery below for more.

      Whoops.. "a few days ago". No coffee + actually paying some attention to my work at the office = bad grammar.

      that "strut bar" clearly does not look attached to the struts. Looks like it's attached to the hardened seat belt mounting points. It could be just a cross brace as opposed to a strut brace.

      This car is nice, but I feel it has rough details that do not blend well with the car. I really hate the rear bumper, and the front bumper. This I assume would get an easy fix with after market installation. This car looks better in person just like the 350 z does. The 350 Z is not as good looking in pictures, in my opinion it looks better in person. This car is nice, except for the bumpers.

        So many things wrong with this car:

        - headlights
        - front bumper
        - rear bumper
        - A pillar
        - waist line
        - wheel gap
        - That "thing" between the exhausts

        The only good things about this car
        - VQ37VHR
        - less weight (?)

        yeah you could be right on that too. But I still see potential in what I think its a nice 370 Z. definitely not like this,

      I'll be keeping my 350Z thanks. The new headlights make me gag. On the good things front though, it's good that they moved the rear strut bar so that you can actually use the rear cargo area now, and that they did away with the separate turn signal lights in the middle of the rear bumpers (never liked that design element.)

      A step backwards in design.

      Too fussy... too many do-dads.... way too much going on....ugh.

      I personally think the new Z looks beautiful. More aggressive with a loss of weight. I have an 04 Z that I am in love with, but this new model is very appealing. I believe the touches inside the cabin are what the Z needed, the 350Z feels cheap inside and things break easily as I have done to my center console arm rest many times. Although, I do not like the removal of the rear strut tower bar. Anyone who has had there Z torn down on the inside as I have know that even in the 350Z, and in the new 370Z where the "NEW PRETTY BAR" is were always connected. What Nissan has done here is remove the plastic and put in a brushed aluminum piece inbetween instead of what was done on the old Z covered in plastic. But now the aftermarket folks can make a strut tower for what was lost. All in all I think the imporvments were needed and Nissan has hit a home run in my book. But I wish that the 370 meant 370HP :-).

      In the previous entries about the 370Z, 80% of the comments were negative, how come once the real photos are out, things have turned 180 degrees?
        • 6 Years Ago
        Don't count me among the 80%. I still think it's inferior to the 350Z in looks.

        I think you're mainly just seeing other people commenting now. Perhaps they're more Nissan fans looking in now.

      much like everyone else, it's growing on me... but i refuse to like the headlight design, i think the previous gen looked way better in that one limited aspect. still love the 928-style rear end, and the profile looks great.

      Something about the A-pillar still bothers me(too far back?) especially in the profile and 3/4 shots. it just seems like the nose is too long. also still bummed about the tacked on fridge handles. I do like that it doesn't have the same chubby feel as the 350z though.

      It looks sharp. I'd like one in black, with tinted windows and black 18s.
