2013 Nissan 370Z: Can You Tell The Difference?

Illustration for article titled 2013 Nissan 370Z: Can You Tell The Difference?

Those pondering why you'd launch a sports car in Chicago in the middle of February will get their answer when they look at the photos of the 2013 Nissan 370Z. This is the least you can do to a car and call it an upgrade. Look, vertical LED daytime running lights!

Rather than bore you with a multi-paragraph description of what's been changed we'll just give you a list straight from Nissan. Don't look at them if you want to play the "Can you spot the difference?" game.

• Refreshed front fascia with vertical LED daytime running lights
• Red reflector added to rear fascia (replaces previous black center cover)
• Revised 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels (Sport Package equipped models)
• New 18-inch wheels for 370Z Coupe
• Red-finished brake calipers (Sport Package equipped models)
• Dark-finish fuel gauge trim
• Euro-tuned shock absorbers (Sport Package equipped models)
• And two new exterior colors – Magma Red and Midnight Blue


The engine will be the same 332-hp 3.7-liter V6 with either six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic. Buy the boy racer NISMO 370Z and you won't, however, get the minimal aesthetic upgrades to the front/rear fascia.

"But, but how will they know I'm driving a 2013 NISZMO 370Z?" no one wondered.

Just tell them to look for the additional TWO speakers in the Bose Premium Audio Package or the dark-finish 19-inch wheels and GT-R-style brake hoses.

It's getting too expensive and complicated. That's what killed the 300ZX

What I want is a small, light, $19,000 200Z with a 4cylinder, a 5-speed and minimal pointless crap. Bonus points if it looks like a 240/280Z
