Default Where are the sun roofs?

I'm picking up my Z today and I'm gonna be MORE than happy with it, but I was bummed to find out I couldn't get a sun roof. I looked at a lot of other cars too, mustangs, scions, and nobody makes a sports car with a sun roof any more! Yet every minivan I see on the road has one. Is there a reason for that? Seems like sports cars should be the ONLY cars with sun roofs. Years ago I had a 2nd gen eclipse and I think the sun roof was the best part.

Am I the only one missing them?

Weight.

If you want a sunroof, buy a Lexus. If you want a sports car, these are your options.
Jordo! and 1st like this.

I personally do not miss having a sunroof one bit. Found this for you.
Had 370Z Sunroof Installed

I didn't buy the Z to race it. It's just a fun weekend car. I've just always liked sun roofs and t-tops, but not a fan of convertibles. I was just curious why the move away from it. Years ago sports cars always had the option.

Don't get me wrong, I'm in love with this car! On the first drive home last night I got some major head turns from it. After driving nothing but company vehicles for the last 8 years I forgot how satisfying that can be!

Those head turns were to see that sticker on the back so the people know where they can get one too. And you want to take that away from the people. So if the people can't have stickers you can't have a sunroof.

( Click to show/hide )
Do not want added weight in a sports car. You want to eliminate it. Maybe a gen coupe was more to your liking. They come with a sunroof.

That's not why you bought the car, but that's why Nissan and a lot of the competitors don't offer it: It hurts performance and raises the center of gravity.

I do miss the roof, civic, integra, tl, accord, g35 had one. But I fell in love with the Z so I live without it
