It’s time for us to apologize. We sample factory material, expert analysis, manufacture’s websites, industry rumors and other blogs, but sometimes we still just can’t get it right. Our predictions had the Nissan 370Z rated at 330 hp, and today we got the news that the official rating is 332 hp — we understand if you never want to read this site again.
As part of the specifications for the LA Auto Show lineup, Nissan revealed official details about the car. The new 370Z features a shorter wheelbase, greater use of lightweight body materials, larger engine with 26 more horsepower, a new 7-speed automatic transmission and the world’s first synchronized downshift rev matching system for the 6-speed manual transmission.
The same release revealed the full list of manufacture’s debuts for the 2009 LA Show. The list includes: Ford Fusion /Fusion Hybrid, 2010 Ford Mustang, Hyundai Sonata Hybrid concept, Infiniti G37 Convertible, Kia Borrego FCEV concept, Lincoln MKZ, Mazda 3, Mercury Milan/Milan Hybrid, MINI E, Nissan 370 Z, Nissan Cube, Porsche Boxster and Cayman, Toyota CNG Camry Hybrid concept and Volkswagen Touareg V6 TDI.
