Who is NISMO you all know. But about their latest project I am sure you don’t know yet. Nissan and NISMO worked together on the 350Z and made it even more powerful: the 3.8 liter engine has now an output of 350 hp: 44 hp more than the original engine.
According to GT Channel, Nissan has finished working on a retractable hardtop convertible version of the 350Z. The new version is set to be unveiled in 2009. The new version of the 350Z will use the current chassis as a test mule.
Also GT Channel reports that Nissan will bring a facelift 350Z in a prototype form at this years Tokyo Motor Show.

A 20 years-old kid decided to trade his 2006 Honda Civic for the much more powerful Nissan 350Z. But only after three day, he and his girlfriend were involved in a terrible car crash, and his 350Z was split into two pieces. He lost control over his car and hit a tree on the edge of the road.
His girlfriend was more lucky than he was. She was taken to the hospital and she will be ok. He was taken to the hospital with serious head injuries.
"At some point, the Nissan lost control, left the roadway, striking two trees and pinning both occupants in the vehicle," said Capt. Milton Martin with the Houston Police Department. "The BMW left the scene."
For the first time ever in the Nissan Z’s 37-year history, a high-performance NISMO 350Z is part of the extensive Z lineup. The new 2007 Nissan NISMO 350Z, which makes its North American debut at the 2007 New York International Auto Show, features an extensively developed list of unique equipment – including a special body package and improved handling equipment. This new model, the fifth in the 2007 350Z Coupe lineup, is available with a 6-speed manual transmission only. It goes on sale at Nissan dealers nationwide in July 2007.
Fred Chang’s project cars have graced the pages of more publications than Pamela Anderson’s spreads (no pun intended) have been in men’s magazines. And with good reason. He chooses only the highest quality parts, enlists the most reputable tuning shops and his builds demonstrate that form and function can go hand-in-hand. Fred’s Nissan 350Z may seem tame compared to some of his other projects, but it is precisely for this reason that it is January’s cover car.
