The new 2009 Nissan 370Z (we’ve been labeling it as a 2010 model year) will make its official debut at the 2008 LA Auto Show, but Edmunds was lucky enough to get behind a prototype for some exclusive one-on-one.
Edmunds said that the new 370Z is a lot shorter than the fifth-generation 350Z which sits on a long 104.3-inch wheelbase so it can be said that the ‘Z’ has gone back to a 99-inch wheelbase. As you’ve probably noticed from the spy shots, the roof has very sharp rectilinear lines that is reminiscent of the Nissan GT-R. The Nissan 370Z will be offered with the 3.7L engine from the G37 coupe producing a total of 330-hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. It will be mated to a manual or a 7-speed automatic.
