About Nissan 350Z
The Nissan 350Z (also known as the Nissan Fairlady Z (Z33) in Japan) is a two-door, two-seater sports car produced by Nissan Motor Corporation from 2002 to 2009. It is the fifth version in Nissan’s Z-car range. The 350Z went into production in 2002 and was sold and promoted as a 2003 model beginning in August of that year. The coupe was the sole model available the initial year, as the roadster did not arrive until the following year. Initially, the coupe was available in Base, Enthusiast, Performance, Touring, and Track trim levels, while the Roadster was only available in Enthusiast and Touring trim levels. The Track specification added lightweight wheels and Brembo brakes, but the suspension setting remained the same as the rest of the coupes. For the 2009 model year, the Nissan 350Z was replaced by the 370Z.
Following the withdrawal of the Nissan 300ZX from the US market in 1996, Nissan attempted to keep the Z name alive by re-creating the 240Z the following year. The automobile was designed in their spare time by Nissan’s North American design team, and the concept was shown in a four-state Road Show in July 1998 to various car journalists, dealers, and workers. When Yutaka Katayama, known as the “Father of the Z,” got a motor industry prize, he revealed the Z concept sketch to the public. The design, which represented a modern interpretation of the 240Z, irritated original 240Z designer Yoshihiko Matsuo, who compared it to the Bluebird and Leopard.
The 240Z idea was created for the Detroit Motor Show in August and September of the following year. Nissan was dissatisfied with the first design because they felt the original 200 horsepower (149 kW; 203 PS) 2.4 L KA24DE engine would make the car feel underpowered; they also felt the car was too “retro” or “backward” like a futuristic 240Z; hence, a redesign was commissioned. President Carlos Ghosn revealed intentions to construct the car during a news conference in February 2000, believing that the new model would aid the company’s revival.
Two years later, the Z Concept was shown at the Detroit Motor Show, with a similar body design but a revised front end. The automobile was then given a small redesign and eventually received the 3.5 L VQ35DE engine, thereby being known as the 350Z.
