We've given you our guess of what the 2009 Nissan 370Z will look like and, according to the first official photos below, we were fairly close. The vehicle is clearly more shapely with a more aggressive nose than the current Nissan 350Z. You'll also notice a little wedge on the C-pillar. Is that a Hoffmeister Kink? More details at the LA Auto Show, in the meantime you can enjoy the official photos and press release below.

Nissan offers the first look at the upcoming 2009 370Z Coupe, which makes its world debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show on 19 November. The all-new 2009 Nissan 370Z, the first full redesign of the iconic Nissan Z since its reintroduction as a 2003 model, solidifies the strengths of its predecessor with an unmatched balance of performance, style and value. The all-new Z will go on sale at Nissan dealers in early 2009.

None of the parts are interchangable with the 240,260,280, or 300. Big mistake.

The junkyards are full of dead Z's... They need to go to a junkyard and spend 6 months studying the poor engineering that failed in these cars. All car designers need to it - it should be some school study requirement. Poor clearance to work on engine parts, flakey fuel injectors, flakey electrical systems, woodruf keys that break on the main shaft, thermostats in fan housings are unanimously dead, all the sensors (oxygen, etc) fail over time, rust on top edge of front windows, rubber seals that rot away around door windows that make doors rust out at bottom, belts that break, fuses that break, fuel pumps that die and leave you stranded, shocks that wear out and make the Z bounce like a boat in the water,plastic that rots away in the sun, clear coat that peals like dandruff.

Don't believe me, go to [zcar.com] and read the ocean of forum posts of people with a multitude of problems with Z cars. I know from an experience, I have two of them, and its a chore to keep them running.. I spend about half the time working on them as I do driving them.

The 'luxury' part of the 'luxury sportscar' needs to be abandoned... all that extra crap fails over time leaving you with just the extra dead weight. Tape decks that don't play, voice announcers that don't work, air conditioning that don't work, power windows/lights/mirrors that don't function, , etc. It just adds dead weight in the end and you end up paying for gas to haul this dead crude around on your car.

When you study cars in a junk yard, you realize, the only thing that lasts forever on these cars is alluminum and glass.

People say what do I expect from a 20 year old car? I say, I expect if I pay that much money for it, I expect it to **** near last for ever and be, save for a collision, indestructible.
