SURPRISE! 2009 Nissan 370Z Bows Early

Well, seems like Nissan couldn’t wait for the official debut of the upcoming, and highly anticipated, 370 Z

The Z series has always seemed to run in cycles. First the 240, small, nimble, light. Then the 260, followed by the 280, which was bigger and more luxo and more gadget-ridden. Then the 300, which was the 280, only more so … then a complete redesign, which, although it was a pretty hefty car, sure could hustle down the road. Then that long dormant period followed by (tah-dah) the return of the Z with the 350, and now … Bigger (engine)? Sure. Better? Well, time will tell.

First off, there’s been a lot of grousing about those headlights, and I’ve got to agree with most of the complainers; besides, to me the whole styling of the latest Z iteration is somewhat questionable. The car is not really about looks, but about driving dynamics, of which, everyone seems to agree that these things are a blast.

And with another 200cc hogged out of the block, you know those dynamics just got a bit better. So, styling aside, it will be interesting to see just what this thing is like when car nuts starts wiring it up and doing some serious testing.
