New Nissan Z!

Holy shit! I am not normaly a fan of foreign cars, but wow.
They've been playing the ad for this all throughout the Sugar Bowl
tonight and I love it.

Re: New Nissan Z!

I'd get white. Never liked white on cars till I owned my first car and it was
white, ever since every car seems to look best in white.
Though my current car ended up dark blue...

Re: New Nissan Z!

That is a handsome Nissan, though a bit more Mistubishi Eclipse-like than I'd have expected.

I like sports cars in battleship gray, myself; is that eccentric?

I love the front end. Very predatory and snakelike.

I'll take a red one as well, please.

Re: New Nissan Z!

I'm going to dissent and say I don't much like the styling. Looks like 911 that's been squished up in photoshop or something. Can't argue with the power though, that thing must pull massively through the gears. Probably a sub 5s 0-60 too.

Re: New Nissan Z!

I have a red 2006 350Z. I love it!! I thought it would be easy to not want a new one for quite some time. But now I see the new 370Z and dang it's going to be hard to not buy one!

My 350Z has been a blast to drive and not single problem with it. They're great cars.

Agree.

Looks like a Japanese 911

However, I think the performance will be good.

I prefer the 350's styling to this one. I looked at the 350 last time I was changing cars a few years back - yep, lots of fun.

It's very nice... Here's hoping they'll make a convertible version. That would look pretty spiffy!

Cheers,

Thank you! I was trying to find words to describe why I don't like this design much, and this captures my opinion perfectly.

Bring back the 300Z design with some modern updates and I'd be all over it.

EDIT: After reading the rest of the thread, now I can't get the fact that the photo in the OP's original link DOES look like a 911 photoshop.

I'm delighted to have polluted your thinking. Now we must join forces to spread this meme throughout the interweb.

Pretty much my feelings. Would never buy it though, I don't car what bang for your buck I'd get. Not quite my type of styling, also I have a dreadful feeling I'd not be able to fit in it
