My love of the Z-car
By Kumacho on


2004 Nissan 350Z Track 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


In 1972 I purchased my first Z. It was
the 1970 240Z and a more cost efficient
sports car I have never seen.

As an avid autocrosser I was looking
for something reasonably priced.

I compaired the Z06 Corvette, the Mazda
RX8, and the 350Z. I was very
impressed with the handling of the Z
and at a price that was 16 grand less
than a Z06.

The Z's 3.5 liter V6 offers very good
midrange tourqe.

On the track the Z says, Drive me hard.

It has very slight understeer. Exiting
a corner the Z becomes instantly
neutral. Inducing oversteer is very

This car is the embodiment of the
original 240Z, offering performance at
a reasonable price.

Best Features

Easy to learn to push to it's limits. Brembo breaks stop the care quickly and have little to no fade. Aggressive styling is a head turner.

Worst Features

Nissan has hinted that the 3.5 liter power plant can easily produce more than 300 horsepower. Do that and it will be a Z06 killer on the autocross track.
