2009 Nissan 370Z: A Gauge Cluster Worth Copying

February 24, 2009

So the trip computer in the new 370Z is a little funky and those auxiliary gauges on the dash can be hard to see sometimes, but would you look at that tachometer?

I mean, that's how a tach in a sportscar is done. Big, clear and right in the middle. It seems so easy, yet all too often designers try to get cute and start shoving it off to the side in the name of symmetry. Stop it already, just copy this setup and call it a day.

Just take a look at the dials from Jacob's post below. Not bad for a sedan, but how much better are the Z's?
