Nissan 370Z Roadster rendering
It will likely take a year for Nissan to replace the full 350Z line with the 370Z, so it won’t be until the 2010 model year that the 370Z roadster will be at dealerships. There shouldn’t be too many surprises from the design of the ragtop version. Just like the current roadster, the lines will remain relatively the same as the coupe. The 370Z roadster will feature a fully automatic fabric roof and has been structurally reinforced to be much stiffer than the current car.
The basic technical parts will be shared with the coupe version: the 340 hp 3.7-liter V6, six-speed transmission, the rear-drive chassis, and a the two-seater cabin. The model changeover may also add a few thousand more to the current base of about $36,800.
