The 240's, z31 and z32 was a bit before my time.
I was 10 years old when the 350z came out, and for some reason the lines caught me.
As a kid I was completely smitten with the 350z, I knew it wasn't the fastest, or the best, but it was affordable and looked beautiful. It was just
different from everything else.
The 370z was a much hoped for improvement. Bigger engine, wider body, better handling etc.
I hear you complain about the lack of a turbo, but naturally aspirated engines are a thing of the past - a dying breed.
But this in part is why I love the 370z so much.
You can add a turbo, cool air intakes, and much much more.
It's incredibly modifiable and built with modification in mind.
Even when stock it's a fantastic vehicle. Simple, sleek and purpose-built.
I'm very happy to see the design and aesthetics giving credit to the 240, it's also a beautiful machine and a legend for it's time. The 370z is just
the best Z of my time, show me another vehicle brand offering up an affordable 3.7L that's naturally aspirated and has a sound so unique... Only
hitting max torque @ 7500RPM.
In a world filled with turbo-charged 2.0L's or even twin-turbo 1.4L's the Z remains different, unique, and I suppose this is why I love it so much.
