Press release after the jump.
Just a little reminder about the Nissan 370Z roadster at the New York Auto Show. We’ve been enjoying the coupe for a few months now, and we almost forgot to keep our eyes peeled in New York this week for the droptop version. Like the coupe, the roadster will be powered by a 3.7-liter VQ37VHR engine with VVEL (Variable Valve Event and Lift) rated at 332 hp at 7,000 rpm and 270 lb-ft of torque at 5,200 rpm.
We’ll have all the details later this week from New York.
We recently confirmed the Nissan 370Z roadster will make its world debut at the New York Auto Show and also saw the patent sketches of the car. It’s not too hard to imagine what drop top car will look like. The exterior of the 350Z and the 370Z coupes don’t appear that different, so squinting at a 350z roadster will give you a pretty good idea about what will be in New York.
But before you go straining your eyes, GlobalMotors went ahead and did the work for you. It may not look like a lot of new bits, but we’re suckers for an excuse to bring up the 370Z’s great 332 hp 3.7-liter V6 engine.
Now that we’re acquainted with the Nissan’s new 370Z, its time to take its top off. Nissan knows this, so its preparing the groundwork, including these sketches it submitted to the European Trademark Office. We expect the real first glimpse of the latest drop-top Z car at the New York Auto Show in April.
Like the Coupe version, the roadster will get a 3.7-liter VQ37VHR six-cylinder engine with VVEL (Variable Valve Event and Lift) rated at 332 hp at 7,000 rpm and 270 lb-ft of torque at 5,200 rpm.
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.
The2009 Nissan 370Z hasn’t had its official debut, so how can we be looking at pics of the convertible? Simple, Inside Line was able to get some information on the new droptop Z and have assemble a pretty convincing picture.
Unlike the G37 Convertible that features a retractable hardtop, the future 370Z Roadster will come with a power-operated soft top. Nissan wants to keep the 370Z as reasonable as possible, and a lower cost, lighter weight fabric roof makes the most sense. Like the coupe version, the future 370Z Roadster will come with a 3.7-liter Nissan VQ engine currently used in the G37 Coupe. The engine will be offered with a choice of seven-speed automatic and a six-speed manual transmission.
Expect to see the the real convertible in April at the New York Auto Show.
Nissan will unveil the coupe version of the 2009 370Z at the Los Angeles Auto Show, but it seems the roadster version will solider on alone for at least one more year.

Base pricing is as follows: 350Z Enthusiast $36,870 - $37,870, 350Z Touring $39,220 - $40,220, 350Z Grand Touring $41,570 - $42,570.

Nissan are preparing their sixth generation of the Z-line. Replacing the current 350Z after seven years of production, the next Nissan sportscar is expected to be launched in the year 2009. Carrying the 40-year tradition of the Z-cars, the new model will be lighter, more powerful and therefore a lot faster.
