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.
