Default 350z and Tall people

Hey guys, I am planning to get a 350z 06 sometime in may or june... I love this car in everyway and i really can't wait. I got a random question for all of you 350z owners, will the z be a comfortable ride for someone who is 6'4"?
I have sat in one before and it was really comfortable but i just want to know if it will be a comfortable ride for long drives?

I'm 5'11". Not quite as tall as you, but I can sit in the seat when it's all the way back and hold my legs out straight. It's got extremely good leg room since you don't have to worry about back seats. You should really go and test drive one and come to your on decision.

Im 6'1 and the Z fits fine for me, but then again I am only about 155 pounds. The G35 coupe actually feels like it has less head room for some reason when I drive my friends, maybe its just the way the seat is positioned. If you are in Socal, we have plenty here for you to test drive!

6' 2" and no problems fitting in the z.


There was a guy on these forums (from SoCal) that checked in at 6'7" or so and thought there was plenty of room.

6'4" and only 160lbs and I sit with the seat all the way back (or one click from back at times) and can wear a helmet and still have about 1 inch of head room.

6' 210 and I fit well. The Z has a lot of room for a small car. I can't fit in my friends s2k at all. I have a friend who is about 6'2 or so and 230 and he fits fine as well. You should be fine.

My 6'10" buddy had to put the seat pretty much all the way back and lean it back, but he fit. He's kind of skinny though, probably only 250 lbs total. He went to play basketball in Europe but wasn't quite big enough to be a big man.

6'2" and drive the car on road trips all the time. Can usually go 8 hours straight before I need to take a break.
Trying to get a quick nap in the Z is another story, uncomfortable as hell.

I'm 6'5" and 207lbs and I fit great in the Z. It's my daily driver and I have no regrets at all

At 6' 3", 245lbs, I am more comfortable in my Z than I was in my old Maxima, even on long drives.
