Nissan Bravely Commit to Taking Your Money

With the introduction of Subaru BRZ/Scion FR-S/Toyota GT86, as well as the Mazda MX-5 RF (kinda), there’s been a renewed focus on rear-drive, two-door coupes (a term that should be oxymoronic but somehow isn’t.) A long-term participant in this class, Nissan has taken a big step in not being competitive.

In their quest to find new ways to sell old cars, Nissan have slapped a couple questionable paint jobs on their already overpriced 370Z for the chance to charge a little bit more for a Heritage Edition badge.

Now, to be fair, the Heritage Edition does squeeze 332HP out of it’s 3.7L V6 (even if that’s the same as the base model), which can be mated to either a six-speed manual or something else a lot less fun (again, like the base model.) And the 370Z is a fun car to drive, especially sideways. It’s not certain that a stupid paint job will really compromise that too much, even if it does cost a little more.

Expect the 2018 370Z Heritage Edition to be available by the fourth-quarter of this year.
