2009 Nissan 370Z

After having some server difficulties we’re back up and running so we’re going to continue wrapping up the day.

2009 Nissan 370Z test-drive update: As we were waiting for our database to get back up and running we decided to head out and do a little photo shoot for the 2009 Nissan 370Z. Here are some teaser photos that we’ll be posting along with the full review next week.

As for Ivan Gutierrez question: “Wait, this is a stupid question but what is under the square lift up thing? Radio and Climate controls? Does it go into the dash when opened.”

No – it has nothing inside except a little storage area. Sadly, it doesn’t go into the dash and flips outward. Check out the images below.
