This is compared to the 2003 3188lb base model, and the 2007/2008 3339lb base model.

Basically, bigger motor, more hp, but about 100lb less than the 2007/8 base model.. but about 100 more than the original 2003 Z, but which also had 287hp compared to the 306 of 2007/8.
I'm gonna' have to butt in and say that my theory was correct the whole time. The weights between the 03-05, 06, and 07-08 Zs haven't changed much. I've mentioned this many times before, but my 06 Touring weighed 3250 stock with all fluids full. Gooey's 07 Enthusiast weighed about 30lbs less than mine. I recall 03-06 base Zs weighing under 3200lbs, so if these numbers are accurate, the 370Z has actually gained weight.

My theory is that Nissan intentionally BSes their weight numbers for the 350Z so that when it comes time to announce the 370Z officially, they can say that the car's shed weight over the 350Z, which was a bloated figure to begin with. We shall see...

Curb weight figures are computed differently in different countries. For instance, many EU agencies also add a 75 kg driver to compute their "curb weight" figures, or something like that. But I don't think Japan is any different than the US.

Anyway, these papers show the curb weight of the base 370Z at 1480 kg. The Japanese Nissan site shows the curb weight of the current base model 350Z at... wait for it... 1480 kg. The current "ST" 6MT as... 1490 kg.

And the current GT-R curb weight on the Japan Nissan site is the same as here... 1740 kg. So it seems they use the same measurements as we do.

Hmph. It doesn't look good.

O.K....... I am not certain about the current Z's, but has anyone driven the new Maxima??? 3550 pounds.....

It feels MUCH lighter than that. It felt as light as the 3300 pound rental Passat I drove.... Even if the Z does weigh 3260, I think it will feel like a 3050-3100 pound car! Nissan has something good going with masking their car's weight in driving feel.

May Nissan is pulling a BMW!! 135i - suppose to be the lightweight heir to the BMW throne but really was only a 'few' pounds lighter than the 335! BUT, most of the 135i drivers say they would NEVER know their car weighed that much....

WAIT FOR IT!!! Nice... I liked that..

I wonder how Nissan is going to talk their way out of this one!!! Even with the larger engine and nicer interior, I still do not see how it weighs the same... I may have to recant later, but I am going to say .... 'wait for it'...



THE 370Z WILL WEIGH LESS THAN THE TRUE WEIGHT OF THE CURRENT Z. BASE MODEL 3160.

Flame suit on; fully prepped to recant when proved incorrect....

If you click "buying 370z" all the way to the bottom says

"The price of the Z34 Fairlady Z/370Z is expected to be between 3,700,000 - 4,700,000 yen for the V6 models and over 5,000,000 yen for the G-nose V8 high performance version"

V8 hight performance version????

Best car interviewed Z34 Chief of Production Shinjiro Yukawa last month and he confirmed that a V8 could see the light of day in a special edition model. Yukawa mentioned he wanted to “raise the performance of the new Z” while also acknowledging the Porsche Cayman S as being the Z34’s primary contender when it hits showrooms in December this year. The Z34 will of course be powered by a VQ37HVR engine from the V36 Skyline Coupe as we mentioned in our last update, only this time power is said to be slightly lower at 340ps but with the same 38.5kg/m torque. That shouldn’t matter though as the Z34 is rumored to weigh up to 100kg less than the Z33 350Z which should give it a useful boost in performance over the current model. A 6-speed manual and 7-speed “manual mode” automatic transmissions are still on the agenda.


what yall think about???

I doubt that will happen. In 38 years, the Z car has never had more or less than 6 cylinders.

Umm, no. Considering registration fees to the DMV are based on vehicle weight, I doubt Nissan BSes their ratings. Curb weight and gross vehicle weight are what they are. Nissan does NOT publish weight figures by pulling them out of thin air.

The only area I can see that would allow for discrepancies is whether or not the vehicle is weighed dry, wet, wet with a half tank etc...

My registration paper and title of car says it weighs 3254lbs. I got practically the same weight when weighing my car. =)

Publishing weights to the DMV, etc. still doesn't stop Nissan from stating BS numbers; Nissan can publish/submit one weight in press releases freely, but can officially declare another weight to the government and such. More recently, another car was found in the same dilemma, and a car magazine noticed that the weight published for the car and the weight they got from their own test had a discrepancy of 80lbs. I'll try to find that link for you if I can remember what car review it was.

Yeah, the post date for that is around June. There where some discussions here that some people couldn't handle and they got heated for no reason. Basically it makes sense to go ahead with the V8 (performance, market positioning), but no one would blame Nissan for not doing it for other reasons (CAFE, production costs, tradition). It really bothers me that the most powerful car built on the new FM platform is the FX50, which is pitched as being built on a sports car chasis. Really our car is a sports car built on a CUV platform and we get shafted their best motor (not really, but yeah).

The V8 Z will probably be what the 380RS was, a limited run of 300 cars exclusive to Japan.
