      - New Nissan 370Z Heritage Edition debuts at New York International Auto Show
      - Features 2018 370Z Coupe model enhancements – including refined exterior treatment and high-performance clutch (manual transmission)
      - Heritage Edition offered in choice of Chicane Yellow or Magnetic Black exterior colors, with yellow interior trim and custom graphics
      - Scheduled to arrive at Nissan dealers nationwide in spring 2017



      NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 5, 2017) – The calendar says 2017, but Nissan is offering a special early preview of the 2018 370Z Coupe Heritage Edition at next week’s New York International Auto Show. The Heritage Edition honors the iconic Nissan sports car as it approaches its 50th anniversary at the end of the decade since its launch under the Datsun brand.


      The Heritage Edition also incorporates enhancements to the 370Z Coupe for the 2018 model year, including new headlight and rear combination light treatment, new rear fascia paint scheme, smoke chrome door handles and new EXEDY® high-performance clutch (manual transmission). The 2018 370Z Coupe goes on sale in spring 2017.


      Available on the base 370Z Coupe, the best-selling and most affordable trim level, the Heritage Edition package is offered in two exterior colors. The Chicane Yellow Heritage Edition features black outside mirrors, gloss black graphics and yellow interior trim. The Magnetic Black Heritage Edition includes gloss silver graphics and yellow interior trim.


      “Over the past five decades there have been a number of special Z® trim packages that have added a sense of customization straight off the showroom floor,” said Michael Bunce, vice president, Product Planning, Nissan North America, Inc. “The new 2018 370Z Heritage Edition honors that tradition, blending it with the modern design and performance of the 2018 370Z. We’re pleased to be debuting the new Heritage Edition in New York, one of the top Z® markets from the very beginning.”


      The 370Z Heritage Edition will be available with a standard 332-horsepower 3.7-liter DOHC V6 engine with Variable Valve Event and Lift Control (VVEL) and a choice of 6-speed manual or 7-speed automatic with Downshift Rev Matching (DRM).


      The 370Z Heritage Edition will be joined by the new 2017 Nissan GT-R Track Edition at the New York International Auto Show. Also on display at the Nissan booth will be a number of specially-modified Nissan Rogue and Rogue Sport crossovers. The show runs April 14–23, 2017 at Jacob Javits Convention Center.

      Nissan needs to replace the 370Z soon..its getting a bit old. Burnt orange was the best color for the 240Z, not sure if this 370Z is the same color.

      The Z is probably my favorite asian car at the current time, but when are they going to be replacing this ancient vehicle with something more modern? I'd rather have a regular sport package Z all day long over this tacky looking special edition.

      The 370Z seems like the current generation itself is 50 years old.

      It's funny because it's true.

      It's like yes it's old, but going back to 2009 isn't as old as a lot of other cars out there, yet for some reason it feels like it's 20 years old and WAYYYYY overdue for replacement.

      In other news, I don't remember the last time I saw one on the road, or even on a dealer's lot to sell. Talk about a dud.

      Really, they could just do a 100% cosmetic "new model" and it would boost sales considerably since style us so important in the sporty coupe market (hard to sell news ones for 35k with so many used ones looking similar on the market for much less).
      Oh and make it CVT only.

      The 80's called.. wants its steering wheel back. What is that? Barf Yellow?

      The problem is that the competition has advanced so rapidly as the Z stayed the same. When the 370z made its debut in 2008, the 5th gen Camaro didn't exist and the 4th gen had been out of the market for over 5 years. The Mustang GT made less power, had a solid rear axle, and a transmission dating back to the early 80s. Today, the Mustang GT and Camaro SS (which can be had for less in the real world) make over 100HP more than the Z and can actually handle. It's a totally different world.

      There's not a lot of cars on the market that haven't been redesigned since then. The most obvious ones that comes to mind are just more Nissans (GT-R and Frontier).

      They knocked down the MSRP by like $3k in 2014 or 2015 to boost sales and it still didn't work, and dealers were pissed they had year old models they absolutely couldn't sell after that happened.

      True, but '09 isn't totally out of the realm, it's not like it goes back to '04 or '05. VW has a couple vehicles in its portfolio that are as old or older, etc. Granted, there doesn't seem to be a replacement on the horizon for the Z either, which doesn't help.

      I really wish Nissan would give the next Z a retro design like Ford did with the mustang, chevy with the camaro, VW with the beetle, porsche with the 911. NO Z has look quite as good as the original

      That treatment is delightfully 1970s looking. I like it.

      The 370Z looks much better with that red reflector where the 'anus' used to be.

      I am guessing if the Godzilla GTR is already 10 years old and still has no plan for new generation, it's little brother 370z can sure forget about it. I rather Nissan stop making 370z, save some $$ and come back again.

      For the sake of authenticity, the yellow bits of the interior were applied with a rattle can.... true story.

      I like the retro exterior color & graphics, and the seats are OK, but I've never liked these cars (350/370) as much as I've wanted to... still a YUGE fan of the OG '70s models tho!

      I suppose they took a cue from Subaru on not updating the STI engine for 15 years.

      Every Z ever has been a 6-cylinder.

      Go find a "why did Nissan kill the IDX thread" to pine in.

      Lame.

      Presenting us with a suitable replacement would be a far better to celebrate it's 50th.

      That car was perfect. I'll forever hate Nissan for dropping it.
