2005 Nissan 350Z Grand Touring 2dr Roadster (3.5L 6cyl 6M)
This is a nimble machine, which you can tell has nearly perfect weight balance. There is exhilirating performance but I am not going to say there isn't room for some minor improvements. Second gear in this car is a total joy, I would like to see a higher redline and the shift points set a bit differently. This probably has one of the best and most consistent power bands of any manual car I have ever driven. Unfortunately, it doesn't take much effort to exhaust this car's limitations in gears 1 thru 4. I get more compliments on this car than I can count and thoroughly enjoy driving it around with the top down. The short wheelbase is surprisingly not a problem except at high speeds.
