With Nissan anticipated to launch the convertible version of its 2010 370Z in a few months' time at the New York Auto Show, a batch of outline drawings of the new roadster managed to walk out of the EU patent office last week. But revealing as those blueprints are, they still require some degree of imagination. Fortunately, the guys over at GlobalMotors.net have precluded the need for imagination by coloring inside the lines for us and providing a batch of renderings that give us a preview of what the 370Z Roadster will look like when it hits the roads later this year. Follow the link to check 'em out, with our thanks to Andrus for the tip.

      No thank you.

      The 350Z is still much more "elegant" than this, even though that isn't the right word to describe the Z.

        My eyes! My eyes!

        No, I had to gouge them out! Someone showed me the ugliest car ever!

      This car looks worse then the previous model.....

      I think Nissan is doing us a favour by not coming to Auto Shows.

      If you zoom it in a little more the car actually doesn't look too bad.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Yeah, I kept zooming in until my screen was filled with just the driver's side door. Looks great now.

      Roadandtrack.com has a "photo-like" illustation of the car from Priddy and it looks quite a bit different from this, especially in the rear.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I like it.

      Besides, it's hard to tell what it will actually end up looking like when one of the three pictures shows different lines - the rear 3/4 view has a relatively straight line from the door to the rear deck, but the side and "road" views show it arching up quite severely.

      If you don't like it, wait for the real thing. Unless you don't like the 370Z hardtop either, in which case you should stop complaining about the roadster because really, what do you expect? It's the same car!

      I like it more than the 350z convertible, the lines look much more natural and not like they just chopped the roof off the coupe.
      Anyone else see the resemblance to the solstice in those gray renderings?

      I hate convertibles. They are cars for women.
      Real men drive cars with roofs which are lighter, faster, stiffer.

      That's got more booty than JLo & Beyonce combined.

      The side profile looks 10X better than the 350Z Vert. The rear isn't 20 feet long and flat anymore.
