Nissan Clearly Wants To Build The 370Z Forever

Facelift

Entering its 10th year of production, the 370Z may never stop being built.

The 370Z was an old school alternative even back in 2009 when it first saw light of day. The brawny naturally aspirated 3.7-liter V6 and rear-wheel drive layout made for a modern-day sporty GT that was less fussed about ultimate grip levels and power figures and more interested in having a good time. The formula has clearly worked and continuous fettling by Nissan has kept it feeling fresh. For the 2019 model year a number of small changes have once again been carried out to the roadster, coupe and top Nismo models as well.

All 370Zs will now be fitted standard with an auto-dimming rearview mirror as well as a RearView monitor and two new colors have been introduced (Deep Blue Pearl and Pearl White) to the Heritage Edition trim level. The familiar 3.7-liter V6 is carried over, producing 332 hp in all models except the Nismo trim which makes 350 hp. A 6-speed manual transmission is standard on all coupes with an available 7-speed automatic that is the only choice on the roadsters. Available options like a 7-inch touchscreen and Bluetooth connectivity add some modernity to the cabin. Pricing remains unchanged and the base 370Z coupe still slides in at just under the $30,000 mark.

The roadster starts at $41,820 while a manual transmission Nismo is a fairly hefty £45,690. You do get a number of track-focused upgrades for your money though, including a limited-slip diff, performance dampers, lightweight 19-inch alloys and uprated brakes. Despite the decade-long production span, the 370Z is actually not the longest running model in Nissan’s range. That accolade belongs to the supercar-scaring GT-R, going as strong as ever since 2007. Clearly Nissan knows a thing or two about building a long-lasting sports car.
