Review

In late 2002, Nissan started the production of the fifth and current ‘Z-car series’ generation – the Nissan 350Z. The 2-seat sports car is sold as a 2003 model.
The Nissan 350Z coupes and roadsters in present production can be seen in diverse styling and trim editions.

History, development and general characteristics

Nissan revealed the 350Z model in 2001, at the Tokyo Motor Show, although the car’s production didn’t start off before late 2002. Nissan 350Z cars were assembled at the company’s factory in Oppama, Japan, until 2003 and in 2004 production was relocated to Tochigi, Japan.

In 2005, Nissan’s Z-car line commemorated 35 years over its inception – with the Nissan/Datsun 240Z – and thus a special 35th Anniversary Edition of the 350Z was launched – a tuned 350Z coupe.

Engine and Transmission

Nissan provides the 350Z with a front mid-engine and rear-wheel drive powertrain, assisted by either a 6-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic transmission.
The earlier 350Z units hold a 3.5-liter V6 engine with 287 hp, reaching 60 mi/h (97 km/h) in 6.1 seconds and going on until 156 mi/h (251 km/h). A 3.5-liter RevUp V6 with 300 hp was added in 2005 and since 2007 the 350Z’s 3.5-liter V6 produces up to 306 hp.

Body and Design

The Nissan 350Z was styled by Nissan Design America’s designer Ajay Panchal, who conceived a 2-door sports car that can be seen in both coupe and roadster body styles.
The fifth ‘Z-car series’ model retains the long hood and short deck styling from its predecessors, to which is added a pronounced fastback roofline.
