Get over it...there will be no more XXXZ from Nissan anymore. They dropped the 350 from their marketing 2-3 years ago when they were able to secure trademark of the letter Z.



Today's post was brought to you by the letter Z

They probably still will put the "370z" emblem on the car itself. Anyways, people are going to still call it 370z regardless what Nissan wants us to call it.

meh,
maybe a waste of a thread...
but theres a point here.

"three seventy Z"
doesnt flow as eloquently as
"three fifty Z"
"three fitty Z"
or
"three eighty Z"

Why are you guys complaining im hearing the car is gonna weigh close to 3,000 pounds becuase they made it shorter?

Why worry about the engine so much if its gonna be lighter? A bigger engine plus light weight already? i hate saying it but "OMG" how much better can it get?

Dont answer that you guys gonna say twin turbo etc etc, i know it can be better but you gotta admit its a dam good step in the right direction.

Default New Gen Z

Like the idea of it badged as a "Z". That way when modified, it will be a sleeper.

Like i said before in a different thread, it WILL be a 380 Z. I never refer to my car as a 350 Z anyways, I just say Z. I wish it was just called the same here as Japan.

History lesson:

240Z- 2.4L
260Z- 2.6L
280Z- 2.8L
280ZX- 2.8L
300ZX- 3.0L
350Z- 3.5L

Hence 370Z with a 3.7L
The Z has always been named after the displacement of the motor
Nissan does market the car as the "Z" but it still has the 350Z badges on it. Expect to see a 370Z badge on the new car.
