    3 years of production, a $37,000 price tag on the high-end, and no fucking high-end motor.

    All we get is the goddam Maxima motor.

    The 350Z should've been developed to be the BASE model, with a much higher-performance variant available, such as a twin-turbo version, or a V8 even.

    What the fuck.

    any car CAN be a good performer with work, but stock for stock, the 350Z sucks ass.

    There are compact SEDANS in the exact same price range that outperform it, STOCK.

    Nissan failed.

    The STi ain't so far removed from the 'quality' of a 350Z. Why can't the 350Z have some serious balls? Its embarrassing.

    its not a failure to enthusiasts, but i do agree with it needing a base and turbo model.
