Every flavor the 2013 Nissan 370Z has now been priced – the latest model with the new front fascia, colors and wheels starts at $33,120 for the 332-horsepower coupe with the six-speed manual, and a $780 destination fee on top of that. The MSRP is an $840 rise over the 2012 car. Opt for the seven-speed automatic and you're looking at $34,420. Add the Touring package to either car and watch the bottom line grow by $4,700.

The 370Z Roadster is a leap to the next integer, beginning at $41,470 for the base, seven-speed automatic model, which is a $970 bump over the 2012. Throw on the Touring package with the manual tranny and you'll spend $44,170, the auto version will run $45,470.

And then there was NISMO: the bump to 350 hp, suspension and styling tweaks and lightweight wheels comes in at $43,020. The Nissan's competitive set is a tough nut, and the Z is geared toward a crowd that seeks more than just numbers: its MSRP is more expensive than the less powerful BMW 128i and more powerful Ford Mustang GT. The '13 Z is also about a grand less than the more powerful Hyundai Genesis Coupe that also figures in its competitive set, before like-for-like options are thrown in. And the Z is less expensive than the less-powerful Audi TT that Nissan would like you compare it to, before you put any options on the TT. Have a read of the press release below for more details.

      I prefer the more aggressive front. This looks too tame with the headlights

      And that right there is why I prefer older cars. To hell with that price.

      The 370 has become a joke. It's not the affordable sports car it was when it first came out.

      Great used car buy. Often a low mile adult driven Summer toy, like so many other sports cars.

      this is really some kinda of car. Its even more impressive in person and think the slight refresh is a positive one.

      Nissan either needs to broaden the Z line up and bring out an entry level Z and have different flavors a la Audi or BMW. Or they need to bring out 25-30K RWD sports coupe like a 240 or similar. At this point - the current Z pricing is putting it in a very awkward place.

      I recall looking at these in late 2009/early 2010 and one could get a base for $26K or a base + sport package for $28K...now the car starts at $33K? What improvements have been made...oh that's right...none. They're making the same mistake they did on the 300zx...pricing it out of the market. They need to go back to the formula used in the original Z cars (240,260,280)...fun and affordable able...the FRS/BRZ is more of a spiritual successor the Z cars of yore than this overpriced pig, but hey at least the fangs are gone 

        It was actually $29k and $32k for the Sport package. But yes it hasn't improved more over that time frame but there are such things as inflation. And with the audience for this car, $3k isn't going to deter that many people. No complaints here, as my 40th anniversary '10 Z is worth more now :) P.S. the new front is definitely a step backwards in terms of styling. Too subtle and 350z like

          @prighello You can't compare your dealers price with incentives at that time to these prices. The 13's might be sold with incentives or at a premium but that will be determined by supply and demand. sports cars have always been priced at a premium

          @Mike Fernandez
          @prighello The Z isn't supposed to be an entry level sports car, that's what the 240sx was for. And they are talking about bringing back a sub Z car sometime in the near future. And yes there are a few entry level sports cars: MX-5 Miata, BRZ/FR-S, etc. Those are all mid $20s - perhaps those are what you're looking for. I for one don't want to see a watered down Z, i'd much prefer for there to be 2 options made available. Simply bring back the 240 now that young people are looking for cheap entries into the space.

          @Mike Fernandez
          I was $26 and $28K, Nissan was pouring on the incentives at the time because their "brand new" sports car wasn't selling. I had a dealer tell me it'd never be a better time to buy the car and he was right. Inflation, exchange rates, etc have a hand, but at the end of the day Nissan really needs to come back to earth with something in the mid 20s or better yet high teens. Why can I not get a cheap, efficient, rwd sports car??? Sh!t an MG-A back in the 50s cost $1800 adjusting for inflation that'd be like $15K today. Sports cars are really just for the enjoyment of driving and should be a second car, but the why their pricing them lately it’s hard to justify as a “second” car unless you are affluent. Where is the fun car for the common man…the olds Z were.

        @prighello
        Agreed. They released it as a sub 30k car, now it's just getting bloated. Might be a result of the strong yen and shrinking demand most sport cars see a handful of years after release.

        You don't know what you're talking about; there have been huge improvements in structure, refinement, cabin quality, engine etc. "None" indeed. The decline of the U.S. dollar hasn't helped much either...import much do you?

        @prighello
        EXACTLY!!!! i couldn't have said it better... its not that consumers don't want performance cars but this thing costs as much as a decently loaded suv,,,, seriously is there that much material in the car to justify the cost? and its basically an upgraded, LIGHTER more expensive 350z i've driven both. "SPORTS CARS" i thought were supposed to be cheap fun fast and enjoyable to drive... I see the demise of the z comming again.. a fully loaded car is over 50k! thats crazy!

        I would bet the recent strengthening of the dollar might have something to do with it

        Car prices go up? Look at the GTR, that's gone up by $30k. Sure, it's faster so there's the improvement argument, but it's not $30k faster.

        I recall the same thing too. I remembered posting about it on an online forum or maybe even AB, saying something about how Nissan was able to give us an affordable RWD sports coupe that packs a 300+hp punch.
