The 20 gallon gas tank alone is over 120 pounds when filled up... so a half a tank could drop you 60 pounds all by itself.

It's not conspiracy marketing by Nissan; it's denial by existing owners. The 350Z is a good car, but a bit of a pig. Hence, the weight reduction for the 370Z.

Just like a 370Z with an official weight of 3144 might very well weigh in at 3080 pounds at the track, with half a tank, etc.
Good points....Really cant trust people at there word about these things. 3144 lbs and 338hp sounds like a blast especially for the price and considering the competition....

It would take some serious effort, since Nissan has done a lot of the work already. The 350Z already had an aluminum hood, and now the rear hatch and doors are aluminum for the 370Z. There aren't any big pieces to take off the car or swap for CF.

Get a base stripper model, ditch the seats, spare, aftermarket exhaust, lightweight wheels... and you might shed 75 pounds. It would take some serious interior stripping to get it under 3000...

Yes, and also that G37 drivers are getting another 30 HP rather painlessly with simple boltons and a tune. I'd gladly drop $2500 for cats, an exhaust, and a tune to get a 3200 pound Z with 365 HP. That's the same power/weight ratio as the new V8 M3, while weighing 500 pounds less. Hell, that's the same power and weight as a 2008 911 S, a solid 12 second car.

As I've said all along, the additional power is great, but the lighter weight is what will resurrect the Z as a respected sports car, and the reason I'm interested in it.
