The Pilot Sport series has served as the OEM high-performance tire for dozens of sports cars world wide, including the 2003-2009 Nissan 350Z, and is the standard for streetable performance. Michelin's Pilot Sport PS2 picks up where the first Pilot Sport left off, delivering superior cornering ability and traction but with an asymmetric tread pattern for enhanced water shedding ability.
General Tire's Exclaim UHP (Ultra High Performance) for the 2003-2009 Nissan 350Z is a summer tire for the Fair Lady enthusiast on a budget. While low in price, it still provides outstanding grip, response and control in dry conditions as well as strong resistance to hydroplaning in the wet. Molded into the unique directional tread design is an advanced silica compound that reduces friction between the rubber molecules and dissipates heat more effectively.
The 2009 Nissan 370Z is 2.7 inches shorter and 1.3 inches wider, and although the styling has something plainly in common with the previous (2008) model, almost every plane and contour is subtly or distinctly different. The wheelbase of this sixth-generation car is almost four inches shorter than the previous-generation 350Z, and all of the sheet metal is new. Nissan is calling the 370Z an all-new car, and it's hard to argue with that.
While the automotive press is abuzz with praise for the all-new Nissan 370Z, the outstanding performance of last year's model, the 2008 350Z, has been all but forgotten. However, the budget-minded auto enthusiast has known that this is the car to watch as dealers ponder how to move unsold brand new 350Z's off crowded lots. Well, to you dedicated few we are pleased to say that your patience has paid off. Right now you can get an incredible four-digit rebate on any 2008 350Z or get financing as low as 1.9% APR for up to 60 months.
2007 and 2008 Nissan 350Z Nismo Specs posted here. Nismo, you can say it a million times and it still sounds cool. Other things a Fair Lady Nismo is good for at least a million times? Driving it, owning it, wanting it, being envious of others who have it...the list goes on. Good nickname for a football player? Imagine the video game announcer: Nismo returns another punt for a touchdown! Those moves come by way of Brembo 4-wheel disc brakes and fine tuned multi-link suspension.
Enjoy the specs, Boom!
2009 Nissan 370Z specs coming Monday, marking the progression of the "Z" chassis into the Z34. We will also try to bring you other Z33 Nismo specs such as the Type 380RS, 380RS-C, R-Tune, and S-Tune.
2009 Nissan 350Z specs posted here. This is it folks, back to where we started. As we know, this is the final year of one of the loveliest Fair Ladies. This could be the end for viscous limited slip differentials, dual door bins, multi-link front suspension, and great looks and power in an affordable performance coupe.
Wait a second, all of those things can be found in the 2009 Nissan 370Z, which will be around for a while. Awesome! Bring on the future!
2008 Nissan 350Z specs posted here. We know, this is tardy. But consider that it was Tuesday yesterday in Australia, so in a way we are being quite prompt. Anyway, 2008 is totally history now. The Dark Knight? That was so last year, man. President "Who"? The EPA changes the way it measures MPG? Look further -- or rather, look back -- and you will see.
2007 Nissan 350 Z specs posted here. It seemed like it was just 2 years ago when the 3.54 axle ratio in your new 350Z was contributing to a mileage count of 20mpg while cruising the city in search of the iPhone. Only to now know that gas prices would eventually go down a little and Apple released the dang thing in 3G soon after. Good times.
2008 Nissan 350Z specs may have to wait till Monday! But next week has the 350Z ride into 2009, Nismo specs, and the start of the Nissan 370Z.
2006 Nissan 350Z Specs posted here. That year Pluto stopped being a planet, the Pittsburgh Steelers won the big game (de ja vu), and the 350Z came standard with clearcoat montone paint and body-colored bumpers...again.
2007 Nissan 350Z specs coming tomorrow! Oh, and maybe some Nismo specs soon?...
The 2009 Nissan 370Z is the latest addition to the Nissan Z-car family; the 370Z follows its elder brother, the Nissan 350Z, and sees Nissan enter 2009 in fine style. Unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show in October, the 370Z is soon to be released in a coupe version with the roadster to follow in a year.
Nissan's Z-car series will celebrate its 40th birthday in 2009. In an interesting twist on the old adage "Life begins at 40", Nissan have chosen this year to launch their latest addition to the series, the 370Z. In a nod to its past, the 370Z has been compared in terms of its looks to the 240Z - the granddaddy of them all. Of course, the new arrival has more in terms of power than the old guard - but it is still a Z car.
The only exterior change to the 2007 350Z may be subtle--a new hood with
a slight center bulge--but there are big changes under that hood. Power
is increased to 306 horsepower, a modest six-hp bump for
manual-transmission Zs and 19 for automatics, but Nissan claims that 80
percent of the Z's prolific 3.5-liter VQ engine has been changed. This
is the same update--and the same engine--that powers the Infiniti G35
sedan. The changes were extensive enough that Nissan renamed its
celebrated V-6 "VQ35HR" (just rolls off the tongue, eh?). HR stands for
"high-revving," reflecting the higher redline for the
manual-transmission model, which increases from 7000 rpm to 7500. (The
less-fortunate driver of an automatic 350Z can only rev to 6600 rpm, as
with the previous engine.).
Specifically, the changes to the engine include a higher block deck
height, which also results in longer connecting rods, hence the taller
hood and a redesigned front strut-tower brace. The VQ35HR also has a
new dual-intake system, revised cylinder heads, variable valve timing
that operates over a wider range, and a higher compression ratio
(10.6:1, up from 10.3:1). Other highlights are asymmetrical piston
skirts and a stiffer cast aluminum engine cover and oil pan.
