The Nissan Z should only have a inline-6. It's a shame Nissan ended that tradition long ago...


To sum it up, I hate the new generation Nissan Z's, as they're not the true sports cars they're supposed to be.

The Hyundai, on the other hand, is a great attempt to make a sporty coupe. As long as I could get one with the top-of-the-line engine with a manual transmission, I'm happy. And for those doubting Hyundai, go look at their reliability ratings today. They used to make crappy cars, but not anymore.....


The straight 6 does not pass emissions in Japan. The GTR's V6 is heavily restricted to meet emissions as you can get 100hp from an upgraded exhaust and ecu tune alone.


That doesn't mean it can't be done. If it costs too much to make their current straight-6 meet emissions, they might as well make a new one, but that's expensive as well... *sigh*

BMW is pretty much the only manufacturer making sporty cars with straight-6s.....

its sad but true damm BMWS 'shakes fist' jk, but if they made a straight 6 for the new GTR that would of been sweet, "RB32DETT" one can only dream... and when did Japan gave a shit about there emissions?? after all this time wtf...

And some pics of the final 370Z production car.

I agree with some people saying it's a pretty "ugly" car, but like many other cars, I really do believe the car probably looks better in person than it does in videos and pictures.


I just went to the SF auto show and I would agree. If the 370z was big, it'd be ugly, but since it's smaller than the 350z and the wheels look fitting on the light, small sports car, its better looking. Like how Nissan put so much effort into the GTR, I think they put the "know hows" into the 370z for better performance all round. Just see it for yourself in real life and you'll probably tell the difference. The 370z is not good on photos, but decent when seen in real life. An the car has BIG brakes, 6 pistons in front and 4 in rear. Wheels are BIG on the car.

Hyundai...nothing to say, but they finally stopped making HUGELY inexpensive cars. I mean, not cheaping out with the cars they make. The Genesis will do fine.
