I had 350Z it was definitely 350Z > 330CI. Don't know how the new 370z stands.

I would like to see it in person, pics can lie sometimes. Even the M3 looks like crap in some pics(Jerez), but in real life with the 18's, it is one mean looking MOFO!

For performance-oriented driving, it is better than the 335. The lack of seats, polarized styling, and harsher ride will drive people away however.

I think it looks great and they have been trying to target the Porsche Cayman/Boxster with the new 370z. Looking forward to read more performance reviews in the coming weeks.

But I do think that it's better to compare the new 370Z with the upcoming Z4 (TT-i6).

Performance wise, clearly superior. As a car, who knows? Looking forward to driving it, this might by my 1er replacement in a few years, depending on what Nissan does, what BMW does in terms of a tii/M 1series or Z car, and what Audi has in store...

I tried to explain that one to 'sticky' when I said the TT-RS would be rival to the M3 and he laughed that one saying the TT was a Z4 rival.

The simple answer is both cars are rivals in monetary terms and it then depends to the individual as to whether the need of two or four seats. I reckon on simply performance terms the Z370 will hold all the cards but think a drive will be needed to confirm this for sure.

It looks like crap, and other than going fast there is no functionality, albeik got it right when they should compare that to the new Z4 with the tt i6

I've already owned my last Japanese car. That was more than a decade ago. It doesn't matter what comes out of Japan. They all lack character and really have little lasting appeal. The only Japanese car I would have even considered is a RX-7, as they're unique enough, cool, and very fun to drive, but unfortunately no longer.
