2003 Nissan 350Z Overview

Nissan resurrected the Z car for the 2003 model year, in the form of the 350Z. The last Z on the market was discontinued in 1996. The new Z was a departure in styling, featuring a rounded, Porsche-like appearance.

The 2003 350Z came in five trims: the base model, the Enthusiast, the Touring, the Track, and the Performance. All shared a 3.5-liter V6 engine with 287 horsepower. Aside from wheel and tire size, the five models are all identical appearance-wise, with differences in amenities and performance. The Touring is the most luxurious option, and the Track is the most aggressive.

Z fans were understandably enthusiastic about the 2003 350Z. Those lucky enough to drive one cite the handling, acceleration, and looks as the car's strengths. Owners also say that for a car of this caliber, the price is quite reasonable. Many drivers wished for a turbo option, and there were complaints about the lack of cargo space, the quality of the sound system, and a bumpy ride.
