January 2006 - it’s been 36 years after the first Nissan 350Z was introduced in the auto world which was then a Datsun 240Z sports car. For several years the car has been through several changes, including its name, to evolve the best car make that can truly make Nissan a stand-out from the rest especially in the sports car market segment. And now, Nissan 350Z has finally proven its worth as one of the top rated roadsters not only in terms of style and looks but over-all performance and driving dynamics as well.
The name Nissan 350Z started as the Datsun 240Z in 1970. It became a hit upon its first entrance in the car market with a list price of $3,526. The demand was overwhelming that buyers have to wait for a couple of months before finally owing possession of the car.
By 1974, the name was changed to 260Z alongside with the change in engine size and of course, power output and performance. In the next year, another change took place which paved way to the replacement of the name from 260Z to 280Z. The 280Z was awarded as the “Import Car of the Year” by Motor Trend, one of the oldest respected auto magazines in the world.
In 1984, the new Nissan 300Z took the place of the 280Z. It became the top selling sports car in the US with 73, 101 units sold. In fact it goes beyond the 1 million sales target in the 90s which made the Nissan 300Z the “all-time best selling sports car”. Nonetheless, production for the US market ended. Yet, its iconic performance and style was once again revived through the Nissan 350Z which finally throttled in streets and highways in 2003.
And now, the Nissan 350 Z Roadster is still running in full speed fully equipped with the equally powerful, or rather, even more powerful drive train including the systems, auto parts and accessories. Add up the raging passion and assertive design and you’ll have a real stunner.
