Once you get beyond the broken steering locks and stuff we all are concerned with, this is something fresh for the Z Community. I've been riding anyone from Nissan USA I can that they need to do more to connect with their Z customers and potential ones. What better way than to get direct input using social media and then translate that into results that we can all have input to. This looks to be a start. Here is more from their website:

"Project 370Z will be built in several phases – power, handling/brakes, interior and exterior. Fan Likes, Comments and Wall Posts will be reviewed over the course of each voting session and the part or accessory with the most fan support will be chosen for the build. For example, in the initial Power Phase, fans might vote between a turbocharger or supercharger for the factory 3.7-liter V6. Phase 2 may include suspension and braking system, since the finished vehicle is expected to see substantial track time. Fans will take part and share in every aspect right up until the final design is revealed at its planned debut set for late May at the annual “ZDayZ” event.

ZDayZ is an annual Z car enthusiast gathering that takes place in the Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee. Each year the event draws hundreds of Nissan Z, GT-R and other Nissan performance car enthusiasts from all over North America. This year's ZDayZ will be held on May 17-20. Attendees will participate in a car show, exhaust sound-off, dyno competition, group dinners and multiple group drives – including runs on ”The Tail of the Dragon,” which has 318 curves over an 11-mile stretch of scenic Tennessee mountain highway.

In addition to its debut at ZDayZ, Project 370Z will be shown at other enthusiast events such as ZCON 2012 and the 2012 SEMA show. The finished 370Z will also be made available for testing by leading enthusiast publications, forums and blogs."
