Nissan 370Z Forum  

Which will age better? 350z or 370z?

If you take care of any sports car, it will age gracefully. Have you been to some meets? I've seen some better looking 350's compared to some 370's out there.

but from a collectors point of view, 10-15 years from now I would like to have both, the z33 and z34 to watch the evolution before my eyes.
Idk if you guys keep up with new about the next Z but supposedly it will be small and compact like the BRZ. And also no more VQ motor. It will be a 2 liter turbo. So the next Z will be a 2something Z? I hate it. I wish they would keep that awesome V6. And the concept car looks nothing like the current Z's styling which someone said earlier would be bad lol..

I don't think this is something that can really be predicted until we see the direction of other vehicles, and even the next Z.

Personally, I like both the Z33 and Z34 for different reasons.

I think the biggest difference lies in the hatch and rear quarter window lines The 370's resemble the 240's more than the 350. And I think it's a safe statement to say that the 240Z has aged really well. So I think the 370 will age better than the 350, it's style has more vertical motion due to how the window cuts up.

the next z will be just that... a "z". they are removing the numbering due to its relation to the motor size. since they will offer various engines with the new model, it doesnt make sense to name the same body with a different motor a different name each other. From the start of the next gen, it will forever be called a Nissan "Z".....We are the final identifiables...... lol

I would assume that on this site that the 370 is going to win out. I am another with the opinion that something just wasn't right about the 350, I thought that it was a great looking car until you got to the back half and it was like they forgot something. The NISMO 350 is sharp, but other than that I will vote that the 370 will hold a stronger appreciation both inside and outside of the Z community.

From the mathematic point of view, 370 > 350 > 300 > 280 > 240 > 1. So you tell me which one age better.

Second thought?

The answer is still 370 handsdown. Why? Coz your on a 370z forum.

I created a poll for the same/similar matter before. Maybe you all want to take a look and vote for your favorite Z car. But remember, your on a 370z forum! JK JK...

Haha I guess you guys are right.. Being on a 370 forum the answer will most likely be the 370. I honestly love all Z's but I love the 350s and 370s...

Would be a hard pick but the 370 def has more potential IMO

I appreciate the feedback guys!

370z hands down. The best built Z to date imo. The interior doesn't suck like the 350 and the curves are a lot more sexy just to name a couple.

I like both for what they are and personally think overall they are very similar.

I originally liked the 370z more but now the softer edges of the 350z seem to be appealing to me. Regardless I think rims/lowering/exhaust on a 350z are a must for me and lowering/exhaust on a 370z are also a must.

I think the 370Z is better in most ways, but I think the 350Z roof/windshield line looks better - the sharper roof line of the 370Z doesn't integrate as well with the rest of the car IMHO.

I still think the Z32 300ZX has the most classic looks of all, however.
