Nissan's upcoming redesign of its Z car is almost here, and proof positive is this prototype caught cruising around in the vicinity of Germany's famed Nürburgring. The redesign is on full display here, with the boomerang-style headlights and taillights first seen on the new Maxima clearly visible. The whole front end is new but retains a visual connection with its predecessor, while big fender flares give away that the new car might be rolling on a wider track. There are also a few more kinks and creases on the new car, which are on display in the chunky C-pillar. We think it looks terrific as an attractive evolution of the current 350Z. The new car will change its nomenclature slightly to 370Z when it debuts this auto show season thank to the addition of Nissan's new 3.7L V6 that will be producing well over 300 horsepower in the new Z. Word has it that Nissan has also worked hard to address one of the biggest criticisms against the current car: weight. We'll probably have more spy shots of the 370Z as soon as Nissan begins running it around the 'Ring, and wouldn't be surprised to see the car officially debut at next month's LA Auto Show.http://www.autoblog.com/2008/10/08/spy-shots-nissan-370z-caught-undisguised/

Reminds me somewhat of an M coupe from the 3/4 shot

Why even bother with the rear 1/4 window? I agree.... 350Z wasn't my cup o tea, but was bearable... this.... :suspect:

I like it sort of. I am hoping to be in the market for something super fast within 2 years or making my CTS super fast within the next 2 years. We will see I guess!

If I get something super fast I am considering:
V2
370Z
STSV
300ZXTT

Anything I buy would be used.

At least it doesn't look like an Infiniti.

To honest it looks like a 1970 240Z's fat, homely sister!

According from what I have heard this 370Z is supposed to compete with the Porsche Boxster and Caymen. This car is supposed to be wider and lighter then the current 350Z. Since the G37 coupe makes 330 hp expect the 370Z to have ~350 hp

Not found of it. I also like how they are happy if finally makes over 300HP, Whoop De Do. Welcome to 2008 Nissan.
I know a lot you folks don't like my "mullet mobile", but there is a Supercharged 350Z here that I like trounce on everytime I get the chance.
I don't know if he thinks one day I will miss a shift and he will finally out run me or what. I haven't even used the N20 on him yet.
IMO just more over priced over hyped stuff from Nissan.

The Porsche Boxter, really? Isn't that like the slowest Porsche made right now. Hell, a Ford Lightning can outrun a Boxter on the strip (got that little tidbit off Top Gear).

Well if they're going to make ~350hp out of a NA V6, that's not too shabby,
