Thanks for the read. Nice article. Im interested in seeing the pics of the Nismo Z you guys mentioned in that article. Massive brakes, body kit and huge wing sounds like a killer. A 09 Cayman S killer that is

Thanks for posting! I think that's one of the more well written reviews I've read. There's no new information, but I like hearing (consistently) from all the car journalists how the 370Z is a huge improvement to the model.

I'm surprised EVO released such a short and shallow review from the performance and handling point of view...

hmm.. I wonder if the Z is gonna be like the GTR in that every engine throws out a different HP figure, maybe that's why the 0-60 times are so different? I mean damn; 4.4!
That's stepping into a whole new territory.. M3 owners watch out.

To be fair, no one has run a 4.4 in it that I have seen.
