2007 Nissan 350Z news, pictures, and information
2007 Nissan Z® Receives 306 Horsepower Next-Generation 3.5-liter V6, Other RefinementsThe 2007 Nissan 350Z, scheduled to go on sale in January 2007, offers a number of enhancements for the new model year, including the next generation of its award-winning VQ-series 3.5-liter V6 engine wîth 306 horsepower and 268 lb-ft of torque. Also added are three new exterior colors – Carbon Silver, San Marino Blue and Solar Orange. A Bluetooth® Hands-Free Phone System has been added to the Touring and Grand Touring Coupe models, and a gray Roadster soft top replaces the previous blue top (in addition to the available black soft top).
For 2007, the 350Z is available in Coupe and Roadster body styles and in an array of models – four for the Coupe and three for the Roadster. Each provides sports car lovers high performance excitement and dynamic driving experience, wîth a style all its own.
The 350Z Coupe and 350Z Roadster share a proud performance heritage, including a state-of-the-art platform, engine, suspension and braking systems. The heart and soul of the Nissan Z®, since the original 1970 model, is its engine. Every 350Z offers a new VQ35HR 3.5-liter V6 engine, which for 2007 produces 306 horsepower @ 6,800 RPM and 268 lb-ft of torque @ 4,800 RPM, wîth more than 90% of torque available between 2,000 and 7,000 RPM.
The fourth-generation VQ-series V6, which has been named one of the 'Ten Best Engines' by Ward's Auto World magazine for 14 consecutive years, has been significantly revised for use in the 2007 350Z, wîth approximately 80% of major parts (except bolts, O-rings and clips) redesigned.
The block features ladder frame construction for greater rigidity, crank journal and pin diameters have been increased and the block height has been increased by 8.4 millimeters to reduce piston side force. Also, the engine center has been lowered 15 millimeters. Other engine enhancements include variable exhaust cam timing (eCVTCS), a higher rev limit (increased to 7,500 rpm) and higher compression ratio (from 10.3:1 to 10.6:1), asymmetric piston skirts, twin knock sensors, improved coolant flow and new Iridium-tipped spark plugs.
A new symmetric twin ram air intake system helps reduce airflow resistance and increases horsepower, by up to three horsepower, as more air enters the intake at speed. Along wîth a powerful engine, the Z® produces a powerful sports car sound to match – one without the low frequency booming or rumbling or high-pitched mechanical sounds that can grow tiresome on long trips.
'With the new VQ35HR engine, we're able to offer the true sports car enthusiast more power, a better sound, and an improved overall driving experience,' said Bill Bosley, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division. 'At the same time, we've kept the beautiful balance of the Z® in terms of unique style, comfort and value.'
Both a 6-speed close-ratio manual and a 5-speed automatic transmission are available. The manual transmission features close-ratio gearing from 1st to 5th speed ranges for high-performance driving and an overdrive 6th speed for long-legged highway fuel economy and reduced engine noise. The advanced automatic transmission design includes Downshift Rev Matching (DRM), which provides smooth downshifting by automatically blipping the throttle.
The Z®'s FM (Front Mid-Ship) platform positions the engine behind the front axle, providing an optimized front-to-rear weight balance of 53/47. The FM platform, derived from racing technology, also places a strong emphasis on aerodynamics, especially on the control of airflow under the body.
The Z®'s standard rack-and-pinion §teering system features a vehicle speed-sensitive power assist, which provides comfortable §teering effort at both low and high speeds. The system's two orifice sets (compared wîth one set for traditional power §teering systems) work together to generate the appropriate level of §teering effort for nearly every driving condition. The orifice sets are controlled by a solenoid valve and electrical control units.
The Z®'s suspension is a 4-wheel independent multilink design wîth extensive use of lightweight aluminum components and standard front and rear stabilizer bars.
The 2007 350Z offers a power-assisted 4-wheel disc Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) wîth Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist. (BA)
Brembo brakes, featuring four-piston front caliper pistons and two-piston rear calipers, larger brake pads and larger rotors are standard on the Coupe and Roadster Grand Touring models for even more superb stopping power.
Traction Control System (TCS) and available Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) work in conjunction wîth the Z's braking system. TCS uses the ABS wheel speed sensors to detect if the rear wheels are accelerating faster than the front wheels. If so, torque is reduced to the drive wheels by altering the fuel injector pulse and controlling the Electronic Throttle Control motor. Working hand-in-hand wîth the ABS and the TCS, VDC can reduce engine torque or apply individual brakes as necessary to help stabilize the car under severe cornering situations or adverse weather conditions.
The Z® features standard 18-inch cast aluminum-alloy wheels, mounted wîth 225/45WR18 (front), 245/45WR18 (rear) Bridgestone® Potenza RE050A tires.
RAYS super lightweight 5-spoke forged-alloy wheels, 18x9-inch front and 19x10-inch rear, are standard on 350Z Grand Touring models. The wheels are mounted wîth 245/40WR18 (front), 265/35WR19 (rear) Bridgestone Potenza RE050A tires. All 2007 Z®s also feature a standard Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS).
2007 350Z Coupe
The 350Z Coupe takes its cues from the original 1970 Datsun 240Z – a front engine/rear-wheel drive configuration, two-seat interior, a powerful 6-cylinder engine and, like the original, features a true hatchback body.
Design cues passed on from the first-generation Z® include the long nose and short deck styling, triangular cabin form and the lines extending from the arch-shaped roof to the hatchback opening. The front end's sleek, aggressive design includes High Intensity Discharge (HID) bi-xenon (high and low beam xenon) headlights.
As always, the Z® continues to offer a long wheelbase (104.3 inches), short overhangs, wide stance and a raised rear deck for enhanced aerodynamics.
The coupe models' coefficient of drag is 0.30 for the Base, Enthusiast and Touring models and 0.29 for the Grand Touring model – which include front and rear spoilers. The Roadster's coefficient of drag is 0.34.
The Z®'s strong, spine-like beltline is anchored wîth large, distinctive LED taillights for better visibility and quicker lighting times than conventional lights. Other standard Z® body elements include an aluminum hood, distinctive vertical door handles and heated outside mirrors.
Along wîth the three new exterior colors for 2007 (Carbon Silver, San Marino Blue and Solar Orange), the Z® is available in Magnetic Black, Redline, Daytona Blue, Pikes Peak White and Silver Alloy.
In 2006, the Z® Coupe interior received new cloth seat material, new meter styling, redesigned door panel styling, revised HVAC controls, new storage space including the addition of a cupholder on each door panel, a new storage net on the passenger side footwell and the addition of §teering wheel switch lighting (except base model) – enhancements that continue for 2007.
Other amenities include §teering wheel audio controls (except base model), mp3-CD capability for the available Bose® audio system and available satellite radio wîth body-color antenna on Coupe models. Also available for 2007 is the Z®'s Nissan Navigation System, which offers intelligent search capabilities and split screen capability (allows viewing of map and intersection simultaneously).
The Z®'s classic 3-bay gauge pod is similar to original 240Z design, while the specially shaped driver's seat (different from passenger design) holds the body firmly in place during enthusiastic driving. The Z® Base and Enthusiast Coupes feature an 8-way manual driver's seat/4-way manual passenger's seat and black woven 'carbon' seat cloth. Touring and Grand Touring Coupes and Roadsters come standard wîth 8-way power driver/4-way power passenger leather-appointed seats in a choice of three colors (Frost, Charcoal and Burnt Orange).
The long list of standard equipment includes automatic temperature control, a lockable rear luggage box behind the passenger seat, center console wîth solid aluminum look, power windows wîth auto one-touch up and down, power door locks, aluminum pedals (except Base model) and HomeLink® Úniversal Transceiver (except base model). The Z® Coupe is available wîth a Bose® audio system wîth 6-disc CD changer and 7 speakers, heated seats and illuminated §teering wheel audio controls.
Another interior feature on the Z® Coupe is an integrated aluminum rear suspension strut tower brace. The functional brace is finished to match the rest of the rear compartment and carries a Z® logo, which is visible from outside the vehicle. In addition, the use of aluminum for the instrument finishers, door handles and other places enhances the high-quality look of the interior.
2007 350Z Roadster
The 350Z Roadster was first introduced as a 2004 model and continues to be a great open-air sports car for top-down driving enthusiasts. The Z® Roadster features a power-operated soft top wîth glass rear window, which transforms from top-up to top-down in about 20 seconds.
The 2007 350Z Roadster is offered in three models: Enthusiast, Touring and Grand Touring. The Grand Touring model, which comes equipped wîth Brembo brakes and Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) is available wîth either 6-speed manual or 5-speed automatic transmissions.
The Z® Roadster's fully automatic soft top features a heated glass rear window, which helps provide clearer visibility in adverse weather conditions. And, unlike other convertibles in its class, the top stows compactly under a lightweight, powered tonneau cover, completely hiding the top when down.
The three-lock, single latch system was created to give a more secure seal, while also making the opening and closing process easier. Activating the top is a simple process. To open, place the transmission in Park or Neutral (manual transmissions), release the latch (located directly above the middle windshield area), push the brake pedal and hold the button (located to the left of the §teering column) and the top opens. Closing the top is also quick and convenient.
Structural reinforcements were incorporated to strengthen the Z® Roadster unibody (versus the Z® Coupe), including a center floor V-shaped cross bar connecting the side sills and a front A-shaped cross bar reinforcing the front end. Additional reinforcement was added at the door openings and a triple-member was added to the seating area connecting the sides to the floor structure to provide enhanced rigidity.
Also during the design phase of the Z® Roadster, engineers devoted countless hours conducting wind tunnel tests. These tests allowed the engineers to adjust the Roadster's design to route air flow to help minimize interior noise and turbulence while maximizing downforce at highway speeds.
A key component to reducing interior noise is a tempered glass wind deflector located between the seats, which directs wind out and over the cabin. Seatbelt fasteners were also added to help keep seatbelts from flapping in the wind. As a result, the Z® Roadster is among the leading competitors for low interior noise wîth the top down.
Like the Z® Coupe, the Z® Roadster's instrument panel features three gauge pods consisting of the drive computer, oil pressure gauge and voltmeter, as well as modern touches such as the enhanced, optional navigation system wîth 7.0-inch display.
The driver's seat of the Z® Roadster is tailored for performance. The base cushion is firm and long for additional support, while bolster cutouts under the thighs optimize pedal operation. The seatback is sculpted wîth large 'wings,' designed to help secure the driver during acceleration. The upper side bolster is sculpted in the middle for easy shifting and §teering, while the lower side bolster is designed wider and deeper to keep the driver squarely behind the wheel.
Also offered on the Z® Roadster are Burnt Orange ventilated leather-trimmed net seats (Touring and Grand Touring only). The net-style seats are made wîth a woven seat cloth center insert and feature an opening in the seatback so that the driver can feel a wind flow during top-down driving. A built-in seat heater is also available.
A lockable luggage box capable of storing a briefcase is standard. There is also sufficient luggage space in the trunk even though the top is stored in the trunk area when down. The trunk has up to 4.1 cubic feet of useable room for storage.
The 2007 Nissan Z® utilizes Nissan's 'Zone Body' construction, providing front and rear 'crushable' zones and a secure center occupant zone. The Z®'s body structure has been designed to create a high degree of structural and torsional rigidity. Key features include a double-panel floor, a double front bulkhead and large-section doorsills.
In addition, roof rails and side panels are laser-welded for a strong, accurate fit. The rear strut tower brace is bolted and welded in place, allowing use of the hatchback body design without sacrificing rear body rigidity.
Also, the Z® features standard dual-stage supplemental front air bags wîth seat belt sensors, and seat belts wîth pretensioners and load limiters.
Supplemental front seat side-impact side air bags (standard on Roadster) and side-impact curtain air bags are optionally available on Coupe to further enhance side-impact protection (side-impact curtain air bags are not available on the Z® Roadster due to the lack of a fixed hardtop).
Models and Options
The 2007 350Z Coupe is available in four models – 350Z, Enthusiast, Touring and the Grand Touring. Standard features on all models include the 3.5-liter DOHC V6 engine, independent multi-link suspension wîth front and rear stabilizer bars, strut tower bar, power windows, 3-bay gauge cluster, bi-xenon headlights, dual front air bags and more.

The ultimate Z® Coupe model is the Grand Touring model, offering front and rear spoilers, RAYS super lightweight 5-spoke forged aluminum-alloy wheels and Brembo brakes. Vehicle Dynamic Control is standard wîth both the Grand Touring's transmissions.
The 2007 350Z Roadster is offered in three well-equipped models – Enthusiast, Touring and Grand Touring. Standard 350Z Roadster Enthusiast features include power seats, power-operated soft top and tonneau, rear wind deflector, 18-inch cast aluminum-alloy wheels, bi-xenon headlights, automatic climate control, a choice of 5-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission, standard side-impact air bags and more.
The 350Z Roadster Touring model features a 7-speaker Bose® audio system wîth 6-disc CD changer and leather-appointed seats. The 350Z Roadster Grand Touring model adds Brembo brakes and Vehicle Dynamic Control.
Three options are available on the 2007 350Z Coupe and Roadster: a DVD-based navigation system (Touring and Grand Touring models only); satellite radio (Coupe Touring and Grand Touring models only, wîth choice of XM® or Sirius™ service), and side and curtain side-impact supplemental air bags (Coupe).
The Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) for the 2007 Nissan 350Z increases only $250 from 2006 on all models except the 350Z Roadster Enthusiast model, which increases $500 and includes front seat-mounted side-impact supplemental air bags that are now standard on all Z Roadsters. The 2007 350Z went on sale at Nissan dealers nationwide on January 5, 2007.
'The Nissan Z has built a tradition of exciting performance and outstanding value for 37 years now,' said Bill Bosley, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division. 'This newest iteration, wîth its more powerful VQ-series V6, epitomizes the innovation and continuous improvement that has defined the Z's success since its introduction in 1970.'
The new engine, which features nearly 80% redesigned major parts (except bolt, O-rings and clips), is rated at 306 horsepower* and 268 lb-ft of torque wîth both the close-ratio 6-speed manual and 5-speed automatic transmissions.
The engine is part of Nissan's VQ-series that has been on Ward's '10 Best Engines' list for 13 consecutive years. The Z's hood has been redesigned to accommodate the new dual intake system and to reflect the 2007 models' more aggressive and sporty personality. Other refinements for 2007 include three new exterior colors – Solar Orange, San Marino Blue and Carbon Silver – and Roadster models receive a new optional gray convertible top (replaces the previous blue convertible top; a black top remains as standard).
All 350Zs continue to offer standard Nissan Advance Air Bag System wîth dual-stage front supplemental air bags, Zone Body construction wîth front and rear crushable zones and Active Head Restraints (except wîth Burnt Orange net seats). The Z has also earned NHTSA's 5-star rating for side-impact crash test safety**.

The Datsun 240Z was introduced in 1969 as a 1970 model. The engine was a derivation of the Datsun 1600. The Datsun 1600 engine was a copy of the 1960's six-cylinder Mercedes-Benz 220 engine, but with two less cylinders. By adding two extra cylinders in the 240Z the cylinder count was back to six. With 151 horsepower and 146 pound-feet of torque the vehicle could propel from zero-to-sixty in eight seconds. The independent suspension and the rack-and-pinion steering added to its quick response, performance, and handling. The front disc brakes brought the car to a stop from high speeds in just seconds. With a price tag of just over $3,500, it cost much less than anything else on the market. Due to demand, a year later Kelly Blue Book rated the value of a used 240Z at $4,000.
The 240Z dominated the SCCA (Sports Car Club of America) C-class production category for 10 years ranging from 1970 through 1979. In 1970 and 1971 John Morton, driving for Brock Racing Enterprises, was the first to claim victory in SCCA C-Class production racing using a 240Z. Bob Sharp claimed his first win in that category in 1972 and again in 1973 and 1975. Walt Maas continued the streak in 1974. The Z-car competed in the IMSA (International Motor Sports Association) where it captured many victories, including the IMSA GTU title. In 1982, Devendorf and his Electromotive racing team win Datsun's first ever IMSA GTO championship.
In 1985, Paul Newman set 10 track records in a 280ZX Turbo.
In 1994, a race-modified Z car won the 24 Hors of Daytona and the 12 Hours at Sebring. It also captured the GTS Class at the 24 Hours of LeMans, making it the only car ever to accomplish such a record within the same year.
In 1974, the engine displacement was increased to 2.6 liters and the vehicle was dubbed the 260Z. This brought an end to the 240Z series which had sold 116,712 examples during its life-span. The United States emissions regulations were increasing every year. Thus, the 260Z had less horsepower than its predecessor and was rated at 139.
The 260Z was available in 2+2 configuration. With the fold-down rear seats, the 260Z offered a higher level of practicality over the 240Z. During its first and only model year, 63,963 examples were produced giving it the all-time Z-car sales record to date.
In 1975 the displacement was increased to 2.8 liters and the vehicle dubbed the 280Z. A Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection system was included which helped bring increase the horsepower to 149.
In 1977, the horsepower rating was 170. A five-speed overdrive transmission was now offered, giving the vehicle better performance and fuel economy. The sales of the Z car once again hit a record high, with 67,331 units sold.
In 1979, the second generation of the Z-car was introduced as the 280ZX. It was more refined and luxurious than the previous Z's. The formula was correct and it was named Motor Trends 'Import Car of the Year'. A new all-time sales record was achieved with 86,007 units being sold.
In 1980, over 500,000 cumulative American Z-cars had been sold. It had reached the half-million sales mark faster than any other sport car. A new T-bar roof option was now being offered.
To add to the appeal and performance of the 280ZX, a turbocharged engine became available in 1981. Sales continued to remain strong through 1983.
In 1984 the third generation of the Z-car was introduced and was dubbed the 300ZX. It featured distinct styling and a new 3.0 liter V6 engine. The normal-aspirated engine produced 160 horsepower, while the turbocharged version offers 200 horsepower.
In 1989, the American automotive economy was continuing to evolve. Minivan's and sport utility vehicles were gaining in popularity. In response, Nissan introduced the fourth-generation Z-car in 1990. The new 300ZX featured improvements both mechanically and aesthetically. Under the hood sat an all-new DOHC 3.0-liter engine with a horsepower rating of 222. A twin-turbocharged version of the engine was available and brought the total horsepower output to 300. The body of the vehicle had been improved giving it a more aggressive stance.
Motor Trend awarded the Z00ZXTT 'Import Car of the Year' and 'One of the Top Ten Performance Cars'. Automobile Magazine honored the car with 'Design of the Year' and was added to its 'All Stars' list. Not to be outdone, Road & Track named the car 'One of the Ten Best Cars in the World'. Car and driver named it 'One of the Ten Best Cars'.
During the 1990 model year the one-million sales mark was achieved making it the all-time best selling sports car. The car continued to receive great reviews and awards by Magazines and publications. The year 1995 marked the 25th Anniversary of the Z-car. To commemorate this occasion, a limited edition was produced with the help of Steve Millen Sport Cars.
In 1996, the production of the Z-car ceased in North America. Decreasing Sales figures, and increased smog regulations and production costs were to blame. The price of the twin-turbo 300ZX was priced at $45,000, a cost that was to expensive for most consumers. Production of the Z-car continued in Japan until 1999, although it had undergone a major redesign in 1998.
In August of 2002, Nissan introduced the 350Z. This six-gear, two-seater was the fifth generation of the Z-car. Offered in five trim packages that included Base, Enthusiast, Performance, Touring, and Track Editions, the vehicle was an instant success. Base price was around $26,000 with the fully-loaded Track option costing over $34,000. Aesthetic and performance upgrades were available through Nismo, Nissan's motorsport and performance division.
In 2004, a roadster option was offered. The roadster was available in two trim packages which included the Enthusiast and Touring editions.
A special 35th Anniversary model was released in 2005 featuring twice the output of the original 1969 model.
Sales figures, race results, and satisfied customers have proven this to be one of the best sports vehicles ever produced.
