Nissan is set to bring a special to the Fairlady faithful at the annual ZDAYZ fest. Based on the sole teaser and the event it's being unveiled at, it's pretty clear that Nissan is going to be issuing some kind of update to the Nismo version of its 370Z.

What that update is, though, is unclear. We can see a few small visual tweaks, like the horizontal LED running lights and their associated vertical vent. The grille looks reformed as well. Beyond that, though, it looks like we're stuck waiting for the full details until tomorrow afternoon. Until then, take a look below for the world's shortest press release.

      Let's hope a more reasonable price and performance parts that ACTUALLY ADDS performance and not just a spine breaking ride.

      I wish Nissan would introduce a modern design of the 1990-1996 300ZX. That generation was by far the best Z of all. Slight rant: I wish I could find a low-mileage 93-96 300ZX turbo that has not been modified at all. It seems that all the boy racers out there have ruined these cars with stupid looking mods. /end rant.

        Yeah like those stupid coffee can exhaust, yuck. I wish more people could appreciate keeping a car stock and clean.

      A motor that sounds like a Hoover with a leaking hose, a dreary interior and date exterior. No wonder sales have been in the toilet for years.

      am i the only one who thinks the 370 looks better than the GTR?

      Unless they are going forced induction or shoehorned a V8 in there without messing up the dynamics...nothing to see here.

      The 370Z just isn't the value it used to be. Especially the Nismo model at 50k. Hell, it's almost impossible to find one on a dealership lot that has an MSRP for less than 40-45k. The Nismo model does look cool but not when it gets it's ass handed to it by the Mustang/Camaro/STi that cost 10k less!

        If you look back to the 350Z's when they 1st came out - the Camaro's had died, the Mustangs weren't anything close to what they are now, STI's weren't in the US. Everything else got better while the Z's stayed the same.

      Swan song? Kinda hoping the retro lightweight proto becomes a reality, at a price that makes sense.

        The IDX is coming but probably 2 years out, the 370z will be redone as well with rumors of a turbo V6.

      If they could trim a little weight out, and get the ride/handling balance right, this could be a very appealing package. As it stands now, you're just paying too much money for cosmetic add-ons on the current NISMO. It doesn't really perform any better, it just rides rougher and looks racier (ricier?).
