The 370Z Nismo is hot stuff. But is it worth it to buy that top-of-the-line model when you can get a Heritage Edition for significantly less? In this video Ryan roadtrips across Tennessee looking for answers.

      What do you think against Nismo? Is Nismo worthy or is really OK to have base model?

      Base is fun and cheap (if you’re buying used)

      This version is so outdated that all of the Nissan "updates" are now useless and are nearly ignored even with the starting price of the 2019 370Z at 30k . If an all new Z does not soon surface then Nissan will lose the opportunity for the introduction of the next Z to coincide with the 1969 anniversary of the 240Z. ...Nissan needs to return to a smaller engine ,more affordable version with an under 30k starting price. The technology exists for a nice DOHC inline 6 of ~2.0 to 2.4 liters, VVT, direct injection, high compression, dual exhaust ,maybe a turbo). Heck, they could even use the newest variable compression (VC) 4 cylinder engine out of the latest Altima. Chasing ever larger engine size and higher horsepower "numbers" are not the answers. This car has always been about affordability and value for the price. A smaller 6 (or even 4 cylinder) would help to keep the price down . Now is the time for the Z to return to its roots. and BTW- this is coming from someone who previously owned a 1972 240Z.( 1979 to 1981).

      I saw a heritage edition in white at my local Nissan dealership. And it had a spoiler which wasn’t on this test vehicle. I think the white won’t stand out as much as the road-stipe yellow you got a ticket in. And you didn’t share much about the tranny other that to say the clutch wasn’t hard. The previous manual clutch was very hard. But I wished he shared more details like if it’s as hard as the ST’s clutch or as soft as the BRZ or Miata. But a good test drive will let me know. I guess I’m gonna have to go visit my local Nissan dealership to find out for myself.

      10 years ago there was a 350z not 370z. 30 hp less, and please do not compare this to American Junk aka Camaro and Mustang.

      The simplicity of the car is what I enjoy most in all honesty , I have a 2016 Pearl Nissan Nismo. Not once do I think about doubting the car
      It’s just a great good looking daily

      The Z is still a better driver's car than the Mustang or Camaro, when evaluated on handling, control and power. It definitely looks much better than the Camaro and even looks better than the Mustang, despite its age. For the price, your getting a lot of car that will put smiles on your face when you drive it.
      I'm in the process of getting a 2019 370Z sport with the 6-speed manual transmission, either in red or black.

      the fact that the 370z hasn't been updated for a decade especially the interior is embarrassing as a Nissan fan. Thats why no one is buying these

      If you want to buy a sport car and worry about gas mileage? you are in the wrong category. When you buy a Z , you buy the legend. Nothing else matter.

      Yes mustangs and Camaro have more tech but also costs ALOT more money to the point a young person can not afford a new sports car on a basic salary. We had many 2door cars to choose from in the 80’s but over the years now sports cars are out pricing a good target age of youth who just want power and reliability. Bring back more base power cars that young people can afford these days.

      They should make the car smaller and have 2 engine options. A 3.5 or a 3.7 supercharger

      Musician first, dude-in-traffic last, the 370 is one of those sweet-spot items that hits the goldilocks zone. A bit like a weird guitar that isn't tech-y or auto-tuned, but it lets you play like you want to.

      That's the 370z. So maybe it's the difference between techno ... and a meeting between a person and a guitar that can really sing in the right hands.

      If you watch deMuro review the older Lambo (80s and 90s), he loves the raw, difficult to drive, feel. Z isn't that different, but it is a lot cheaper, in-keeping with its heritage.
