I am trading for a Touring w/o Nav. Package. nice nice.
Love the 245 and 275 tires w/ 19" wheels.
I was expecting at least 340 bhp, but it is nice the 332 ponies under the hood anyway.

It will def be a more refined car. Even though people are saying that the Z weight is still pretty high, 46/54 weight ratio and only having 332 HP, I still think it's going to be quite faster and a lot better than the 350Z. If you look at the specs list, you'll find out why it's so much better... check it out

Nissan 370Z Official Specs Released from Nissan 11.15.08

Here's an really good article from Nissan USA (copyright Nissannews.com)

Great Nissan 370Z article by Nissan 11.15.08

Nissan 370Z at a glance

Source: Nissan/Infiniti News Room

Quote:
The all-new 2009 Nissan 370Z, the first full redesign of the iconic Nissan Z® since its
reintroduction as a 2003 model, solidifies the strengths of its predecessor with an
unmatched balance of performance, style and value. Targeting segment-leading
performance and a base price of around $30,000, the new Z® provides passionate
performance at an excellent value. This new “Everyday Sports Car” is scheduled to go on
sale in North America in January 2009, followed by a new 370Z Roadster for the 2010
model year.


Nearly every piece and component of the 370Z has been rethought or redesigned
(compared to the previous 350Z) – a shorter wheelbase, greater use of lightweight body
materials, larger engine with 26 more horsepower, a new 7-speed automatic transmission, a
world’s first synchronized downshift rev matching 6-speed manual transmission, a new high
quality interior design and new available technology features.


The 370Z’s new aerodynamic body is more compact and offers a more aggressive stance.
Attention to details such as the new “boomerang” headlights and taillights increases its
dynamic presence, elevating the overall styling to much higher quality and emotional levels.
Performance has been enhanced with a more rigid body structure, better power-to-weight
ratio and a new 332-horsepower 3.7-liter DOHC V6 engine with Variable Valve Event and
Lift Control (VVEL). Crisp handling is provided by a refined 4-wheel independent
suspension, while steering and braking systems, including available Nissan Sport Brakes,
have also been upgraded.

The dramatic new interior utilizes an innovative driver-centric three-layer design which
groups items by how a driver sees information, operates the controls and is held in place –
so drivers feel completely connected and engaged whenever and wherever they drive.
Available technology features include Nissan Navigation System with XM NavTraffic® with
Real-Time Traffic Information (XM® subscription required, sold separately) and 9.3GB Music
Box Hard Drive and a Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System. The new Z® is offered in two
models: 370Z and 370Z Touring.

no no, don't get me wrong. 332 for me, it is perfect, I was just saying that I was expecting, before the specs were released, 340 bhp and I cant wait to trade my 07 Z, for this 370Z.

The specifications look fantastic. The power to weight ratio will be very nice and balanced. The slight added fuel economy from the 350Z is always a plus. I love how Nissan actually made the car smaller and lighter than the outgoing model; that's so very rare these days!

Question: Can anyone speculate why the turning radius is larger for the 19" wheels? Perhaps they add steering rack limiters from the extra width?

The fuel economy is pretty much on par with what I hoped. 18 city/26 highway? Awesome.
