Nissan dealers won’t stock a 2021 370Z, but don’t despair. A redesigned Z is on its way, likely due in dealers late this year or early 2022.
As of today the soon-to-be-outgoing 370Z is still alive on Nissan’s site, but if you’re pining for one you should probably act soon. Less than a dozen new 370Zs are available on Autotrader, though savvy shoppers may want to save a few bucks with a lightly-used one.
The 2020 370Z is no spring chicken, having been on sale since the 2009 model year with limited changes over the last decade or so. Still, the car offers good acceleration from its V6 — which can be had with as much as 350 horsepower in the track-tuned NISMO version.
The Nissan Z prototype that points to the next production model has a twin-turbocharged V6 power. The concept car that Nissan has shown so far has retained a manual gearbox, which should thrill enthusiasts.
Sales of Nissan’s iconic Z sports car have, predictably, dwindled. Last year, Nissan moved fewer than 2,000 370Zs, though that figure wasn’t down as much as you might expect given the coronavirus pandemic’s impact on the new-car market. In 2019, Nissan sold nearly 2,400 370Zs.
Still, the market for sporty coupe remains notable, as Ford with its Mustang and Dodge with its Challenger can attest. Last year the Mustang racked up over 61,000 sales, while nearly 54,000 Challengers found new homes.
