Default To buy or not to buy a 370z ? =/

Hello im new to this forum my name is George..
I am 17 years old and the next year im going to university and my father will buy me a car..Me and my father lovee the 370z he said if i want it he will buy it for me.
The issue now is that im hearing that the fuel economy is not great you need 15-20euro gas for every 100km. My friend had the 350z but he sold it because of the fuel consumption.

Tell me your personal opinions of the gas consumption

sorry for long post
Thanks

Sorry, but, most of us here did not buy a Z to worry about gas consumption. Honestly, at 17, you should get a more economical car. Z will not only be more expensive to maintain/run but your insurance will be very high also.

I do not worry about gas for the Z, I just go out and play....
if you are worried about that, find another find little car GTI, Miata, better on mileage and not bad to drive

you really want to know?


convert that into euro.
that much will only last you 260-310 miles depending on how you drive.

i think a gallon was around $4.22 for premium

thats why there is lot of used Z for sale, they can definitely afford 33-37k car but never thought about all other stuff that comes with premium car. (gas, maintenance wear and tear items and etc)

and after 30k miles schedule maintenance they sell the car realizing how stupid it is to have a car like this for daily.

Poor question, to buy or not, to be asking on this forum. And if you're worried about gas mileage, buy a Prius.

Btw......Hi.

Just have dad buy you a Bugatti and lifetime gas, maintenance and insurance. It would be the most sensible way for you to accomplish your goal of max show at minimal cost.
