Sportscars usually get a bad rap for poor visibility. It's the price you pay for a car that looks cool, but the complaints pour in anyway.

The 370Z is not immune. It has a low seating position and a shallow greenhouse, but as you can see here visibility isn't all that bad. Rearward blind spots are the biggest issue here. A good adjustment of the mirrors is all it takes to cure that issue though.

There's not much you can do about the small rear window, other than be careful of course. I don't find it particularly troublesome personally. The Challenger suffers from the same problem and all it takes is a little extra caution when changing lanes and backing up. Seems like a small price to pay for a stylish design.
