Click above for a gallery of the Nissan 370Z S-Tune

Nissan's latest Z-car has hit the ground running in the U.S. and Nissan may begin stirring the pot to ratchet up excitement another notch. Although we usually have to wait for the extra goodies launched in Japan to make the trek to the States, rumor has it that the factory NISMO S-Tune kit will migrate over the Pacific in short order. In addition to the coupe's already aggressive bodywork, a ground effects kit designed to improve aerodynamics will be part of the package, along with a new set of deep dish, five-spoke aluminum wheels and upgraded suspension and brake kits. A cat-back exhaust system rounds out the bits and pieces. If the rumors hold true, we can expect to see the NISMO S-Tune 370Z kits on dealer shelves sometime in June.

      The GT-R and 370Z are fast as stink, but for the kind of people that buy Porsches, they don't have nearly enough cachet. And from someone who has owned neither but driven some of each, a Porsche offers a lot of things that can't be measured with numbers which the Nissans don't. There is something intuitive about a Porsche's controls which I've never experienced in any other car I've driven.

        ...like frightening understeer followed by snap oversteer. :)

      This will kill the Porsche Cayman S, just like the GT-R has Porsche 911 Turbo owners quaking in their penny loafers at stoplights, dreading some young guy pulling up next to them in a Nissan and reving the engine.

        I suspect you'd be right and that would be possible if it were faster then one.

      I'll take it, but CAN I EVER HAVE A Z OR GT-R THAT IS NOT SILVER?!?

      I, for one, am thrilled.

        Overall shape and stance are tip-top, but the headlights just don't do it for me. Still, a fine-looking ride.

      I think there's way too much going on with that ass, reminds me of Tara Reid's unflattering rear bikini shot, loose wrinkly butt and all...

      Looks miles better than the GTR, too bad it doesn't perform like one.

      The body kit just doesn't flow right to me. Plus the wheels and tires don't look right in the wheelwel. They just don't fill it up right.

      Maze, this one's for you

      I hate stick on bodykits like that. Makes car look cheap and ricey.... If a manufacturer wants to do it right they should mold whole new front and rear bumper designs with the spoilers integrated. This is crap.

        I agree - when they are just tacked on, they look like the cheap Pontiac palstic cladding of yesteryear.

        I'll pass.

      Will this be like all the other S tunes adding no real performance gain but sliding in a tremenous price tag? I HOPE SO!!

      Why do these motors not sport direct injection yet as well? Pathetic!

      well i have heard that mustaches are the in thing for 2009. Maybe that is why they put one on this car.
