2020 Nissan 370z Coupe
Well folks, with no further adieu, I introduce to you the long awaited, fully re-imagined, revolutionary new 2020 Nissan 370z Coupe!!!! For the 50th anniversary of the 370z, Nissan decided to go balls-to-the-wall with a new take on the classic sports coupe we’ve all come know and love!
What the Hell Nissan?!
Of course this couldn’t be further from the truth. Literally nothing has changed. I thought for sure Nissan would come out of left field and hit us with something fresh and new. Instead they slapped some ugly stickers on the current model and called it innovative. Same goes for the poor out-dated GTR. Its truly disappointing. They keep putting out the same “Balanced” sports coupe year after year, meanwhile I’m in the corner screaming for a twin turbo variant. Which at this point may never happen.
As you can see by the image above, Nissan pulled out all the stops revamping the interior of the 370z. From the antiquated infotainment system to the pointless gauges and redundant digital clock above it, they couldn’t have crammed much more innovation in such a small plastic covered cockpit.
Massive Performance Boost!!!
Surely they at least turned up the power on this little coupe. Right?… No. No they didn’t. For 2020 you are stuck with the ancient 3.7L VQ V6 with 332 HP and 270 torque. Or you can get yourself the Nismo tuned variant with 350 HP and 276 torque for only $15,000 more. What a rip… I’ve been patiently waiting for Nissan to borrow the power plant from Infiniti. How sick would it be if this car had the 3.0TT from the Q50 and Q60. They let their own spinoff brand out pace them. It used be 370z VS G37. Now we have the Q60 and there is no comparison between the two. Please Nissan, GIVE US TURBOS!!
2020 Nissan 370z Nismo
Thank goodness Nissan updated the Nismo edition. Unfortunately, this didn’t happen either. I understand to an extent why the GT-R has been stagnant for a while. In fact I wrote another article about it. Give it a read. However, I find it difficult to make any sense of the decision to leave the 370z untouched. The Nismo model still offers a tune on top of the same engine found in the base model, which gets you up to 350 horsepower. Along with a tune the buyer is awarded with the classic Nismo treatment. Red Bits Everywhere. In fact, if you wanted, to one could call this blog a Nismo Edition because of all the red accents I use. Maybe Nissan is on to something there after all.
50th Anniversary… Maybe you were thinking about getting the 50th anniversary model. Sure go ahead. Who doesn’t like spending 5k on some goofy decals that look like they came off of some bro’s Challenger. It’s your money. This is classic Nissan. Sure I get the whole “If it’s not broke don’t fix it” mentality, but damn at least bring it into this century. If you are in the market for one of these cars, do yourself a favor and buy one used. Then used the money you saved and actually make it fast.
Conclusion I LOVE NISSAN… I was just expecting something new by now. Also I really thought we would have a twin turbo option by now. Oh well. I suppose the market will have the final word.
