One mountain, no practice and no do-overs: that’s how three-time Formula Drift champion Chris Forsberg tackled California’s gorgeous, winding Onion Valley road in a V8-powered Nissan 370Z.
What’s the best way to test out a new drift build? By taking the Internet masses along for the ride and filling a camera’s lens with tire smoke, duh.
If this kid thought breaking the axle of the Nissan 370Z while at a car meet was bad enough, he probably shouldn’t have done whatever it was to elevate his mother’s anger to the point where she was selling off the car to bystanders at the scene of the crash.
“The tint is illegal,” he told me, “but I’ve never gotten pulled over for it.” I was standing in a freezing-cold garage looking at a blacked out 2011 Nissan 370Z. It crouched so low to the ground that preschoolers could play leapfrog over it. Its marriage prospects had been improved by the addition of a top mount…
Ever wondered what would happen if a Nissan 370Z happened to have a 1,000 horsepower V8 under the hood?
The Nissan 370Z upholds the legendary driver-focused model set by the original Z-car 50 years ago. What do you need to know before you buy a Nissan 370Z? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in our Buyer’s Guide.
If you own a new sports car — let’s say you have a Nissan 370Z — how much power would you make from a twin turbo kit, and how hard would it be?
The Nissan 370Z is getting a little long in the tooth these days. So what does Nissan do to keep it current? Did they add a turbocharged engine, or make it lose some weight, or give it a dual-clutch gearbox? Nope, they added one of the most hated new technologies on cars instead: engine sounds through the speakers.
Smaller, lighter, more efficient, and more BRZ-like. That's what we've been hearing about the car that will replace the Nissan 370Z for some time. Since it's likely the next Z will follow the trend of downsizing engines, what do you call it? How about just the Nissan Z?
A few people test-driving Nissan 370Zs got surprised when the cars were hooked up to PlayStation and a projector screen, giving them the chance to virtually experience driving the car on a race track.
Losing your brakes down the back straight at the Circuit of the Americas is not something you want to do, as Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge racer Tim Bell found out today.
When was the last time you thought about a Nissan 370Z? Sure, it came out a few years ago, but for some reason it seems like the vast majority of people would only answer with "never."

Despite its honking exhaust note, no one can deny that the now-cheaper Nissan 370Z is a fantastic performance bargain. But one question has always dogged me: is it faster than two guys who jump off a mountain wearing wingsuits?
Nissan's following the news of its profitable second quarter with a little present for all of you Z-car fans: They're dropping the price by more than $3,000.
