Saw a brand new 2017 370z Nismo (Tech) with a six-speed being listed for $39,999.99 at a local dealership. Gave them a call to ask why, said it was already sold, but they were just trying to get them to move.



2019 Nissan 370Z: Old Dog, No New Tricks - The Drive

2019 Nissan 370Z Carries on With Minor Changes » AutoGuide.com News


Gosh I love these cars but it blows my mind how overpriced they are and unable to keep up with other cars in the market. Did some random snooping on pricing and comparing... 370z Nismo is the same price as a Mustang GT and a Camaro SS and yet gets blown out of the water???

How can people still buy these cars brand spankin' new lol? They're so expensive, especially the Nismo and Nismo Tech now.

Gorgeous cars though.

Would you ever get one if they were possibly lowered in price?

The Nismo has always been quite a bit pricier than the standard trim.

I recall you could buy a 370Z for under $30k at one point. Not too shabby. Old tech, but still a fantastic car to drive.

They depreciate like crazy though. I test drove a 2014/2015 (can't remember) 370z Sport and 370z Nismo (both stick) a little while back. I honestly loved it but was shocked how the dealer was not willing to budge at all on the price or throw in any freebies to make the deal better.

I got good news for you though! You can still buy some for under $30k even with a few options thrown in:

But then I'm blown away at how these fully loaded ones are touching BMW/Audi prices...

I love the 370z but just wish they were priced better or had a tad more power. They're super fun cars. Definitely dying to try out the 370z Nismo w/ the automatic. I heard the paddles shift pretty quick.

Germz,

I had a 350Z roadster, 12 years or so back. I had just came out of a SLP Firehawk F-Body. The Z was fun, handled fine (a little tail happy, but that was something you could manage) and looked great. Feathered front tires like nobody's tomorrow. I went through 4 sets in 3 years and could have went through at least 1 more.

Bottom line was the car cost more than the Firehawk. The Firehawk would eat its lunch everywhere (track, autoX or strip). It didn't matter, the LS1 was just a lot stronger and would overcome whatever small handling advantage the Z may have had.

Fast forward to 2016. My WRX was proving to be too slow and just didn't have that V8 punch. The Alpha platformed 6th Gen Camaro with the LT1 was a whole other class of car (world class sports car). However, before I pulled the trigger on the SS, I looked and drove the 370Z. What can I say? It was slower and didn't handle as well as the SS. The $$ were nearly identical. The Z is just years behind the other offerings that are out there.

FYI - for ~$40K, you can get a Camaro 1SS - 1LE. That is a track monster and a daily driver that doesn't kill you, all rolled into 1. Check out the Lightning Lap for how well this car did.

I feel so bad for such a delayed response!

Yea the Camaro is a beast. It's a shame the 370z has not been updated in so freaking long!

My buddy test drove the new Camaro SS auto and Camaro ZL1 auto and said that the 370z NISMO auto had nothing on them... granted... price wise the Z and SS are far more similar...

Love the looks and styling of the 370z but it definitely needs a little bit of power boost added or at least some significant weight reduction to improve performance.
